Murder by Death

I read cozy and historical mysteries, a bit of Paranormal/UF, and to mix it up, I read science and gardening books on occasion.


I've had incredible book contest karma the last few months and I've been wanting to pass it on.  Next week, the 22nd is my BookLikes 2 year anniversary so this seems like the perfect time to have a contest!


I've been racking my brain for weeks trying to come up with a contest (I lack creativity in this area) and finally decided on the book version of "guess how many jellybeans are in the jar".


So, here's my pile of books I'll be giving to my local Friends of the Library soon.  Be one of the first two to guess the correct number of books (or come the closest without going over) in the comments below before Tuesday, the 22nd of September at midnight (AU EST) and you'll win your choice of book from Bookdepository.com (or co.uk) up to $15USD.



One hint to get you started: the biggest box is 15 inches by 22.5 inches.


Good luck and happy guessing!


PS: Once this contest is over, I'm going to do a giveaway of several titles from the box.  I have to figure out how much it'll cost to ship a paperback from AU internationally, so I know how many I can give away.  Also, I couldn't show the titles now without making guessing how many there are easier.  :P  So, stay tuned.


PPS:  I was thinking about it this morning and realised I'd better add a couple of T&C just to be safe.  This isn't aimed at anybody, since nobody here has done either of these things, but in the interests of clarity and fairness:


1. Only 1 guess per person

2. Guesses are recorded after they're posted, so please no editing of your guesses.
