Reading is one of my favorite pastimes. Because I have quite a collection of books, I’m willing to donate them.
Over the past few months, I held contests on my Goodreads blog. The response was great, so I decided to create a blog/site strictly for contests. The books in my contests are in PRINT format only and they are by new and established authors. Some books are in very good condition, others are a bit worn. If they are signed, I will state this in the appropriate contest. Otherwise, they are NOT autographed.
Why am I doing this? Because it’s fun, and I want to introduce readers to books by other authors. I prefer to share these books with those who have not read them. However, if the contest involves several books in a series, and you have read only one, you may still enter the contest.
What do you have to do to enter?
All you have to do is leave a comment and/or answer a question, and you will be entered to win. Be sure to include your e-mail address so I can contact you.
How do I select a winner?
I use Random.org to select a winner.
Then, I will announce the name on the blog and send the lucky person an e-mail message requesting a mailing address.
Winner must reply to me within 3 days of the announcement. If winner fails to respond, winner forfeits the prize and I will select a new winner. (This hasn’t been a problem, and I want it to stay that way.)
Lastly, I will mail the books FREE of charge within the USA and Canada, and I’ll throw in some swag from my books.
**Effective with contest #10, I will ONLY ship within the US and to Canada. I’m sorry, but international costs are too expensive.
Do I expect anything in return, like a book review?
Nope! If you want to let me know what your opinion is about the books, feel free to send me an e-mail. This is optional, not a requirement. I enjoy chatting about books, so I will respond.
If you have any questions, send me an e-mail message.
Contests will change every 2-3 weeks. If you don’t win, be sure to stop by again.
Note 1: I am not responsible if the post office loses the books. I haven’t had a problem so far. In case it happens, I will not be able to replace the books.
Note 2: When you enter the contest, you agree to the terms mentioned above.
Note 3: I can no longer ship outside US and Canada due to the high shipping costs. (see above)
