Public libraries provide the greatest support to reading around the world. This giveaway of The Past Never Ends allows Goodreads members to help benefit some of those libraries.

Ten softcover copies of The Past Never Ends (ISBN 162016003X), a new legal mystery by Jackson Burnett with a retail value of $19.95 each, have been set aside as donations to public lending libraries in communities of less than 50,000 people located in the Great Plains states: North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, Colorado, Wyoming, and Montana.

THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOT A PART OF THE GOODREADS GIVEWAY PROGRAM: This blog is the only place where you'll find how to participate and the terms and conditions of this giveaway. The undersigned is exclusively responsible for the performance of this giveaway.

1. One book will be given to one public library in a community of less than 50,000 in each of the ten Great Plains states. If no library is nominated for a state, the book set aside for that state will not be given away.

2. Nominate a qualifying public library by sending Jackson Burnett an email through Goodreads. Include in that nomination the name of the library, the community it serves, its address, and a telephone number for the library. (If you are not already a friend, send a friend request and it will be honored. Sending such an email will not subject the sender to "Please buy my book" spam.) The failure to provide this information disqualifies the nomination.

3. The dates for sending nominations are from August 22, 2012 to September 9, 2012. The winners will be announced on Jackson Burnett's blog on September 10, 2012. All nominations are subject to confirmation of the library's existence and its willingness to accept the donation.

4. Only one nomination per Goodreads member will be accepted.

5. If two or more qualifying libraries are nominated in one Great Plains state, the winning library will be determined by the author and his publisher exercising their sole and exclusive discretion.

6. Although this giveaway is not a part of the Goodreads Giveaway Program, the author and publisher will be bound by the terms and conditions set for Goodreads Giveways except as modified above.


I agree to supply the indicated number of books on the date the giveaway ends.

I am responsible for the actual shipment of the books and the related expenses to the winning libraries.

The books will be given away at no cost to the receiving library and at no cost to anyone making a nomination.

I agree to not store the winners' mailing addresses and to never mail anything to the winners except the indicated book. The winning libraries will not be solicited by me in any manner.

Ebooks are not allowed. Every winner must receive a physical copy of the book.
