HungergamesCover.jpgWe have another great contest this month at YouBentMyWookie where not just one, but five (5) lucky readers will have the chance to win a new paperback copy of Suzanne Collins’ “The Hunger Games” novel which will be released on July 6th, 2010.

Optioned and set to be adapted into a major motion picture by Lionsgate, “The Hunger Games” was #1 on New York Times Bestseller list as well as USA Today’s Bestseller. In Entertainment Weekly, Stephen King praised it by saying, “I couldn’t stop reading.”

“The Hunger Games” is a young-adult science fiction novel that follows the story of sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen, who lives in a post-apocalyptic world where people are pitted against each one another in a game of survival and forced to kill until only one remains.

You can preview the first chapter here: The Hunger Games Chapter 1.

To enter and win yourself a copy, all you have to do is fill out the form below with the correct answer to this month’s contest question:

This giveaway is open to all legal residents of the United States and those who are 18+. One entry per person, per day. There are two ways to enter:

No purchase is necessary. Winners will be selected randomly from all valid and correct entries. “The Hunger Games” paperback giveaway ends July 15, 2010.

This Month’s Question: Which sector is Katniss from that’s known as the coal mining sector?

Official synopsis of the series:
In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capital surrounded by twelve outlying districts. The Capital is harsh and cruel and keeps the other districts in line by forcing them to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight-to-the death on live TV. One boy and one girl between the ages of twelve and sixteen are selected by lottery to play. The winner brings riches and favor to his or her district. But that is nothing compared to what the Capital wins: one more year of fearful compliance with its rules. Sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen, who lives alone with her mother and younger sister, regards it as a death sentence when she is forced to represent her impoverished district in the Games. But Katniss has been close to death before—and survival, for her, is second nature. Without really meaning to, she becomes a contender. But if she is to win, she will have to start making choices that weigh survival against humanity and life against love. Acclaimed writer Suzanne Collins delivers equal parts suspense and philosophy, adventure and romance, in this stunning novel set in a future with unsettling parallels to our present.

Remember, if you don’t win, you can always pick up your own copy of Collins’ “The Hunger Games” which will hit stores July 6th.
