[T]he silencing of LGBTQI literature doesn’t affect only gay or questioning kids who are looking for stories to help them untangle their identities. These books are equally important for straight and cis-gendered teens because stories are our greatest tool to create empathy and combat intolerance.

So my 100 follower giveaway hadn’t even ended before I hit 500 LOL. HOW IS THIS HAPPENING SO FAST. But I told myself I’d do another one at 500, so! Lo and behold!
This time: DON’T PAY ATTENTION TO THE BOOKS PICTURED. They’re just there to look pretty. :)
The prize is as many books as you can buy with $20. YUP. YOU CAN GET MORE THAN ONE BOOK WITH THIS.
To do this, you can use any book website of your choosing, but I highly recommend 3rd party sellers off of Amazon or bookdepository. Of course, this depends on where the books will be shipping to, but I VERY STRONGLY RECOMMEND the Amazon option (if shipping to your country is possible). YOU CAN GET ONE BOOK FOR $4 OR LESS, if you hunt strategically. I HAVE GOTTEN 4-6 BOOKS (mostly used) FOR $20 THIS WAY.
THE $20 DOES INCLUDE SHIPPING. Just so you’re aware.
I AM an Amazon Prime member. This means I will not have to pay shipping for eligible items. If you’re the winner, I will gladly work with you and message back and forth to find as many books as you can within the limit.
As this is a very warm thank you to those who made this possible, you must be following me, just-one—more-page. I will be checking! If it’s a secondary blog, a link to it must be somewhere on your primary so I can tell it’s you. (I strongly hope you won’t unfollow afterwards. I’m really an enjoyable person, and you may actually like my blog!)
You may enter by both liking and reblogging this post, and you may reblog as many times as you like. Just be considerate of your followers, and avoid spamming them.
No giveaway blogs allowed!
I will choose a winner with a random number generator from the notes.
When a winner is chosen, they will have 48 hours to respond to me and start to actively work with me about which books they choose before I randomly choose another winner.
Please make sure your ask box is open! Otherwise I will not be able to notify you if you won.
You must be comfortable with giving me a shipping address. I won’t keep it or do anything else with it, I promise. <3
The giveaway ends at 12:00AM EST on October 1st!
If you have any further questions, please don’t hesitate to ask! NOW GO FORTH AND REBLOG, MY LOVELIES. <3 FOR THE LOVE OF BOOKS!
