SWAG Giveaway!

I recently went through my desk drawers and found I was guilty of hoarding swag. I had lots of multiples of the same thing, so I've divided them into two piles and I'm gonna ship it out for someone else to enjoy! Just leave a comment, and two random entrants will be picked. Winners will be updated on Twitter and in the comments on 9/30.  
Here are the goods:


The larger buttons are from Kate DiCamillo's, Flora and Ulysses. 


I also picked this bookmark up at my local bookstore, and since I haven't read the book and have no particular ties to this prettiness(tho the movie trailer does make me well up), I'm giving it away, too.


Also, since I know there's not much to say in the way of comments for these types of things(besides I want, gimme!) how about you guys tell me what are some of your favorite things about fall?

  1. I JUST read If I Stay/Where She Went--so so good. Funny, I used to hate fall but this year I'm kind of loving it! I'd have to say the way the light streams in differently, the leaves changing, that feeling of change that comes with a new season--and just the all around coziness :)

    1. I should read them since it looks like they must be pretty amazing, but there's just so much already on the TBR list! I love getting to see pumpkins sitting out. There's something so cheery about their bright orangeyness. Though my fav are white pumpkins- love them!

  3. What a generous gesture, and a great giveaway... I do so heart swag!! I also am a HUGE fan of fall and all things autumnal. First of all, I like getting to use the word "autumnal." I also enjoy pumpkin spicing ALL THE THINGS!! My first Pumpkin Spice Latte of the season is an Event. I also have a recipe for pumpkin penne (it's savory with sage and sausage and is deliiiiiicious) that I break out this time of year, usually with the first real cold spell. I'm looking forward to it already!

  6. Nice swag! Don't enter me, as I need to do this for myself. I have some awesome swag I need to get rid of. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

  7. YAY, I see Jen Malone's bookmark in there. I need to get my own swag going for book #2. I'll probably just do a postcard and bookmark, though.

  8. Favorite things about fall? Hot apple cider. Yum. :)

    I'm not a reader of young adult/middle grade, so the swag would probably go to waste with me. I love learning about what you're reading though, because if gives me ideas for my daughter (who is only 4 though).

  9. The trees and their colours, not so much in Singapore, but on Pinterest I get to see a lot of pretty fall posts. I don't really collect swag though I like looking at film or book postcards that remind me of a favourite story or vacation.

    1. Oh, yes, fall leaves are gorgeous. I'd love to get to go to New England and see them there someday, they have some of the most amazing autumns.

    I love the smell of fall. It's so crisp and refreshing. My allergies don't love it as much as I do though. :(
