Out of Print Tees + GIVEAWAY

I'm a bookworm. Every summer, while growing up, I participated in my school's read-a-thon and read at least 20 books a summer. Nowadays, I have less time to read. I barely have time to get through 2 books in one season, let alone 20. However, I still love books!! In a world obsessed with technology, there's nothing like cracking open a book (not a Kindle) and escaping from life, if only for a few minutes.

So, when I received an email from Out of Print Clothing and learned about how they are celebrating the joy of reading through fashion, I was immediately intrigued.








Out of Print Clothing has created a line of t-shirts that bear the vibrant and artistic images of some of the world's greatest novel covers. Using iconic and out-of-print covers of classic books such as "To Kill a Mocking Bird", "Invisible Man", "Catcher in the Rye" and "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest", Out of Print tees give you the opportunity to creatively display your love of reading while simultaneously upping your "cool factor".

In addition to selling great t-shirts, Out of Print Clothing's mission is to provide books to those in need.  This is why, for every t-shirt sold, Out of Print donates a book to Books for Africa.  Wondering how many books they've donated so far? Over 20,000! That's beyond impressive and yet another reason to appreciate this line.

Visit OutofPrintClothing.com to check out the entire collection and read more about their mission.  And remember that making a purchase will not only benefit you but also the life of others.

Now, for a little fun...

The wonderful folks at Out of Print Clothing are offering a t-shirt to one lucky winner! 

To enter, you must complete the following steps:*
1. Go to the Out of Print Clothing website to view the entire line (check out the men's shirts as well).
2. Leave a comment below stating which shirt you'd love to have and why. Is it nostalgic? Is it still one of your favorite books of all time? Did it have a lasting effect on your life? Also include your size and email address.

For additional entries:
-Retweet this post
-Follow Out of Print on Twitter or Facebook
-Follow ChiTown Fashionista on Twitter or Facebook

That's right. Up to four chances to enter!

GOOD LUCK


*This giveaway ends Monday, October 11th, at 11:59pm CST and is open to U.S. residents only

This is a fantastic giveaway! I was so excited to see these tees! :-)

After clicking through both the men's and women's, I have to say, I absolutely the "A Tale of Two Cities" men's tee (even though I'm a lady). It is one of my all-time favorite books. I remember when it was assigned for summer reading before my 10th grade year. I was completely enthralled the moment I opened the book. Definitely a classic!

Such a unique clothing line and awesome giveaway. I absolutely LOVE the fact that they give back by donating books to those in need. It was a toss-up between "Lord of the Flies" and "Of Mice And Men", but I think I'm going to have to go with "Of Mice And Men". I remember reading it in high school and to this very day, I still get teary-eyed when I think of the tragic ending. This is truly a classic.

The Fahrenheit 451 shirt would be my choice because it was one of my favorites in high school. One of my favorite memories of college was meeting Ray Bradbury when he cam to do a talk and book signing at a local book fair. He is so brilliant, funny, and fascinating!

I love the " Fahrenheit 451"

I read it in the seventh grade.... Fahrenheit 451: the temperature that a book burns. It was just so lasting on me because of the concept of burning books. In my essay I paralled it to how slaves couldnt read. I loved the book, especially since I was a book work...it gave me an attitude of gratitude.

All to find out Bradbury is weird! He's a super elusive writer. I can dig it.

I simply love these t-shirt and it's a great cause. Books are wonderful..I love my books and I love to read. As a child growing up I spent countless hours reading. It was a safe place away from my abusive mother and and escape emotionally.

Invisible LIfe is my all time favorite book. It best describes what its like to be Black in America

I would love to win Catcher in the Rye, because this was the first "high school" book I read as a freshman in high school. It reminds me of the stellar literary analysis paper I wrote on J.D. Salinger that gained me an A for the assignment. In fact, these t-shirts bring back so many memories of my late nights reading, or using Sparknotes/Cliff Notes to get prepared for the next day of English Lit. LOL

I would love to win the Walden shirt in Women's size small. Walden by Henry David Thoreau was one of my books when I read it just out of college ... I daresay I was in love with Thoreau (or maybe just infatuated with his mind) after reading it ... I also adore the cover design for Walden because it reminds me of the coast of Massachusetts and Maine, where I have spent many blissful weeks.
