Auction for First Book: H.R. of Bad Brains

The next auction for First Book is Oh, the Places You'll Go by Dr. Seuss. This one was autographed and even graded by H.R., who was the singer of Bad Brains.
Now, I'm sure some of you are wondering...Why this book? Well here is your answer: "He picked it because he loves Dr Seuss and it’s a positive message."

Since it's a picture book, it's not marked up like the others...but it's still awesome.
So, did you like Bad Brains or H.R.? Know someone who did? This would make a great present, so please bid and help First Book!!!

If this is your first time at the auctions, here are the rules:

** HOW TO BID: Leave a comment on this post with the amount you want to bid for. The Leave a Mark page on First Book is ONLY for the winner...if you bid the most, you donate through that site that amount and I will mail you the book.

**The first person who bids has to START at five dollars, so each book will sell for at least that much. If you want to bid above that, it has to go up in fifty cent increments, so people aren't going up by a penny or a dime.

Ex. Starts at five dollars, will go to five fifty, will go to six dollars, etc.

**We will give a loose finishing date for each book being auctioned, but it might change, so just keep checking the blog and make sure when it has ended or not. This will help us and you in the long run!

**If you are an author and want to mark up your book, please get in touch. We'd love to have you! If you don't have time or don't like to mark up books, feel free to get in touch about sending us any promo items to include with the books when people bid on them.

** ALL PROCEEDS will go to First Book, so keep that in mind!!
They have a page set up for us as well, where you will donate your money if you are the highest bidder. You can also feel free to donate aside from the auction, if you'd just like to help out First Book. The site is here: Leave a Mark site!

** If you're the winner, we'll send you more information. But make sure to check back to see who wins, or leave a way for us to contact you!

So, go ahead! Bid! :)

DEADLINE: This will end next Wednesday, MIDNIGHT EST!!!
