Horse Race Booth: Saturday - Spring Blog Carnival

First up I must announce the winning horse of yesterday's race. . .

POISON STUDY

Yesterday was by far the most pathetic turnout of the entire week. Of a handful of votes Poison Study edged out. Thanks to some extra support from Twitter Poison Study really picked up the pace and won by a landslide.

If you chose that horse to champion congratulations you have been entered into the prize pot. To everyone else better luck with the next race.
For return players you can skip the formalities being repeated and check out today's horses racing. Place your bet in the form not the comments and answer the new question in the comments section.

Who doesn't love a little carnival fun. I sure haven't outgrown my love for carnival games. Lori over at Pure Imagination along with Angela from Reading Angel and Candace from Candace’s Book Blog are throwing the second annual Spring Blog Carnival. I have joined up with them to host a booth. This is likely all stuff you know if you are following along by linky.

Step right up
Only one comment to enter a bet
Just answer the question: (This is your ticket for the booth and to place a bet)
What is the best book you have read in the last year?
Please place your bet through the form not the comments. We don't want to sway the other entrants. The form also gives me a way to contact the winner.
We have a lovely copy of The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater as a prize
(US only)


There are four horses that will be racing today. Bet for your favorite one. If the horse you chose wins your entry will be placed in the pot to win the prize at the end of the carnival. Sorry only the winners advance to the final round here. So choose wisely! There will be a new race each day this week. Come back each day this week to bet on the new horses. You are allowed to enter once each day. That means seven different comments and seven different bets. There might be a way to tip the race in your favor. Spread the word any way you can. Encourage your friends to come and bet on your horse as well.






Today's horses are:

Sing Me to Sleep jockeyed by Angela Morrison



Split jockeyed by Swati Avasthi



Book of a Thousand Days jockeyed by Shannon Hale



City of Glass jockeyed by Cassandra Clare
 They are ready to race so hurry and get your bets in. Which horse is your favorite or is the most likely to come out the winner?

Remember you must comment below for your bet to count and fill out the form.

The results of the race will be posted the following day before the new race starts.

A recap:
You can comment once each day and place a corresponding bet on that day's race.
A total of seven possible entries if you come back each day and your horse wins.
The entries for the winning horses each day will be placed in the pot and one will win the prize.
They will be contacted by email and have 48 hours to respond.

One more time:
Comment + Form = Bet
Winning Horse Bets = Entry for Prize
Losing Horse Bets = Sorry No Luck
(7) Races  (7) Days  (7) Comments  (7) Bets

Today's comment question is:
What is the best book you have read in the last year?

Fill out the form to record your bet.

****Don't record your bet in the comments section only in the form.****

Good luck and may your horse be swift of feet!



Now head on over and enjoy some of the other carnival booths.

  1. The best book this year is Flat-Out Love by Jessica Park. It's YA/New Adult and it has incredible characters, a family-secret plot that verges on a mystery, very real dialogue and a lot of both heartbreak and humor.

  4. Only ONE? That's tough. I think Blood Red Road was really well done, though- I read it in 2 days. :)

    1. I am sure I wouldn't mind hearing a few or a group of great reads. This is a great way to find new books.

  5. The Demon King by Cinda Williams Chima was one of the best books I read last year. It's an action-packed high fantasy story filled with love, friendship, mystery, and mayhem. EXCELLENT!
