I Am An Erudite!

   I've been on vacation for the past couple of days (since Thursday to be exact) and just got back tonight (Tuesday night). While on vacation I got an email from my fantastic Harper Collins contact saying that I was one of the 50 bloggers selected to get an ARC of the highly coveted Insurgent by Veronica Roth, book 2 in the Divergent trilogy. So I knew I was getting the ARC, but when I got home and found this, I was still incredibly excited and did many dances, including a house parade that involved lots of screaming :P. Here's what I found:
It came in an AWESOME Insurgent themed package! 
Inside there was this awesome thing, and yes, I mean REALLY awesome thing:
It felt like I was in the presence of a god!!!
And my faction:
Yeah!!! Hear that?? I'm Erudite, we're the smarticles of the Divergent world!
So why do I need a faction? I mean aren't I just supposed to read the book? Well here's the cool thing: Each faction has 9 bloggers (and one team leader) who are trying to direct hits to their page. Whichever gets the most hits by April 25th will get a prize! Why don't I introduce you to the rest of my kick butt smarty team!

And of course, we're being led by the smartest of them all, Pam from Bookalicious!
Even if Erudite go a bad name in Divergent, we're not actually evil. Just a few of us, but hey, every faction had a few bad eggs, right? 

So, you want to help us win do you? I knew you would. But for those of you who are just a little hesitant, I have a giveaway for you! And it's a giveaway with brains! Here's what's up for grabs:

1 Grand Prize Winner will receive a signed (and personalized by request) copy of Insurgent from Veronica's local indie bookstore.
2 1st Place Winners will receive either a paperback of Divergent or a hardback of Insurgent. Their choice. 
1 2nd Place Winner will receive a $10 dollar gift card to a book retailer of their choice.
3 3rd Place Winners will receive a swag pack. (Note: this is not a Divergent/Insurgent themed swag pack, just whatever swag I have available.)
