Every summer LDS Publisher sponsors a reading contest with books for prizes. All that is required is to read books by LDS authors over the summer and post brief reviews of those books on your blog. A winner is drawn each week. Readers joining the program are supposed to list on their blogs the books he or she intends to read this summer. More detailed rules including instructions for those without their own blogs can be found on the LDS Publisher contest site.
This contest is always fun and is a chance to not only win free books, but to "talk back" to reviewers, compare favorites lists, and discover books to add to your wish lists.
My list looks a little short, but I'll be adding to it all summer. I don't always know which books I'll be reading since I write reviews for Meridian and I pick books to review each month from the books sent to me by various LDS publishers and authors. My reviews are posted the third Thursday of every month. Here are the books I'll be starting with:
The Route by Gale Sears
Pickup Games by Marcia Mickelson
Agent in Old Lace by Tristi Pinkston
Altered State by Gregg Luke
All the Stars in Heaven by Michele Paige Holmes

The contest I run on this blog will continue twice a month and is separate from the LDS Publisher contest. Readers on my blog are welcome to make comments on any of the books I review as well as on LDS Publisher and on the different entrants' blogs, but only those comments left on my blog or the V-Formation will be eligible for the books I offer as prizes.

I haven't even heard of 3 of the books on your list! They must be new. I'll have to look for your reviews on them.
I have a SRT list on my blog too ;^)
