I wish you a British Christmas...

...and a Delirious New Year!

I am so, so excited--I received an early xmas gift today of a bunch of beautiful British ARCs of Delirium! Here's a pic. You know how you can tell it's British? Because it's drinking tea, silly!!

Anyway, this means I can give some galleys away. So please respond to this post BY USING THE WORD "DELIRIUM" IN A SENTENCE. Don't forget to include your email address! And you will be entered to win one signed copy of the UK ARC.

Additionally, I will be sending you a nifty bottle of Delirium essential oil from the Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab. I'm not sure what you're supposed to do with it but it comes in a cool bottle. See?

(On a side note, the picture above is an excellent example of artistic perspective, and might be used to practice drawing. Look how gigantic my hand looks!)

Please reply by 1/1/11. (OMG--best number ever!) And good luck!

Genesis said...

There is in every madman a misunderstood genius whose idea, shining in his head, frightened people, and for whom delirium was the only solution to the strangulation that life had prepared for him
--easier to check it out in a dictionary

It is as absurd to say that [due to motherhood] all women shall be denied the suffrage, as it would be to deny all men the suffrage, because some are liable, periodically, to inflammatory rheumatism, delirium tremens, or financial failure.

---I like this better

I have already read Delirium and LOVED IT (I also passed it on to two friends already and they loved it), but I would love the essential oil and I could do a giveaway of the ARC on my blog!

Seriously, Delirium is probably my favorite YA book since The Hunger Games, and I can definitely see it getting just as popular. I can't wait for it to come out so I can see how much everyone else loves it.

Ok. That's the story: I just went flipping the pages of my Anglais/Français Dictionnary and it turned out DELIRIUM is actually a word! I thought you made it up! Haha...feel so silly.
Of course this is a word, it means Délire. Mental and Psychic illness. Makes sense. Suits the plot. (wink*)

DELIRIUM, D-E-L-I-R-I-U-M, DELIRIUM. And that's the how I won the fourth grade spelling bee. At first I wasn't sure, but than I asked my teacher to use it in a sentence and she said "the other students will suffer from delirium when they lose the spelling bee to you."

Thank you so much for the giveaway!I want to win this so so so much!! I am so desperate to win Delirium!
I tried a little fun rhyme with the word delirium:

Alice was in a state of delirium,
Coz she had consumed too much sodium!
Now she saw the Tiger-lily blossom,
And thought it was a kid possum!

If you cant consider that as an entry,then here's a sentence:
As a consequence of Mrs. Jones' incapability to bear incessant loneliness after the departure of Mr. Jones,she suffers from recurrent bouts of delirium.

Thank you so much,
