Time for an update on the Christian Hurt Files!!
You guys! Kayla and I are literally floored at the generosity you all have shown toward her cousin. For a refresher course or to find out for the first time who Christian is and why we are running a charity for him, check out THIS POST.
Now, since we are only 4 days away from the delivery of 25 boxes of books and audio (a total of 812lbs!!!) from the amazing people at Amazon Publishing – I wanted to show you everything we had grated so far, and tell you the NEW way we are going to run the charity event!
Cast your gaze upon the awesomeness so far:
Notice brand new copies of COLS, Shatter Me, Bitterblue and More!
We have first editions autographed in there!
We have Gift Cards and Author Autographs
We have awesome swag, movies, music, ARCS & more!
WE HAVE A KINDLE FIRE!!!

I bet you are asking yourself
How Can I Get My Hands On Some Of This Stuff!
Well, I don’t blame you! Especially that Kindle fire – who doesn’t want one of those!!!
If you read our initial post about Christian and raising money for him and his neck surgery you will remember we were going to a raffle, you would have gotten one entry for each dollar spent.
Well, apparently that’s illegal to do on the internet. Who knew? Well thankfully my step-dad or you’d all be raising money for my bail next…
We came up with a NEW and 100% Legal way to do all this!
- We are going to take the upwards of 800-900 books we will have once all the donations arrive and separate them into 75-100 Flat Rate shipping boxes through the USPS. (depending on how they fill out, will determine how many boxes)
- We will then photograph, catalog and list the boxes here on the blog and you will be able to PURCHASE a box for them low cost of $25 USD + Shipping (between $11-$16 in the US)
- Here’s the kickers, the reasons you want and need one or more of these in your life: Each box will have over $50 minimum of product inside of it – think about it, a few will have $25-$50 gift cards to B&N, it’s like those ones are free and you’ll still get TONS of other things in it.
- HIDDEN INSIDE ONE OF THE BOXES will be a brand new KINDLE FIRE! Kayla and I will use random.org to choose the number of the box, and you will only know if you go it – if it arrives at your house!
You can expect these items to be ready to go by the 2nd week of June. When I have an exact date I will you know so you can count down, you want these boxes, and some you will not be able to pass up!!
If you have anything you want to donate – swag, arcs, anything….drop me an e-mail at meandmyshelf at gmail dot com! Time is creeping nearer but we still have a few days left!!
