The 5 X 5 ARC TOUR: Please Ignore Vera Dietz

I just read a great book by A.S. King named PLEASE IGNORE VERA DIETZ and I wanted others to also enjoy it and create some "BUZZ" by reading and reviewing it. An ARC Tour of PLEASE IGNORE VERA DIETZ seemed like a great opportunity to accomplish this but I have never hosted an ARC Tour before. After spending considerable time viewing other sites and their ARC Tour policies and such, I have decided to make this one easy because the ultimate goal is to help promote the book.

1)This tour is open to US bloggers only (please bear with me it's my first tour).
2)It is a 5 day ARC tour, but if you finish reading before your 5 days are up then please send it on to the next person.
3)Each tour participant is responsible in mailing out the ARC to the next person on the list including delivery confirmation.
4)Your review MUST be posted no later than ONE week after reading.
5)Then send the ARC to the next person on the list and NO one else.
6)Please do not destroy or loose this ARC.
If you are serious and can commit to this ARC tour (meaning that you will read and review this book) than you are more than welcome to sign up. I will have 5 spots available and it will go on a first come first serve basis.

I'd love to read it and review it on my livejournal (if that's cool--it's not a dedicated book blog but I talk about books often).

Oh, I wish I were in the States! Guess I'll have to wait until it's published. But I'm going to run out and lay my hands on a copy of The Dust of 100 Dogs, because that sounds like the coolest book ever!

I would love to see what you have to say :)

“Reading is everything. Reading makes me feel like I've accomplished something, learned something, become a better person. Reading makes me smarter. Reading gives me something to talk about later on. Reading is the unbelievably healthy way my attention deficit disorder medicates itself. Reading is escape, and the opposite of escape; it's a way to make contact with reality after a day of making things up, and it's a way of making contact with someone else's imagination after a day that's all too real. Reading is grist. Reading is bliss.”
