Well, it has been a while since I had a contest, hasn't it? I've been going through my shelves and donating anything acceptable to my local library. I've decided I don't need to hold onto every copy of every book I have any more.
I'm only keeping books I will definitely read again, will use for reference, are somehow of special or sentimental value, are part of a two bookcase home library for my son or are part of a collection of keepers set aside for future grandchildren. That leaves quite a variety of other books around that need homes and this is where the contests will comes in. First thing I've decided is I'm going to giveaway all ARC's that don't fit into my keeper categories above!!
This contest will end Aug.5.
Please check requirement #1. Not everyone is reading this. I don't like deleting your entries!
1. You must be a follower to enter. That's it! I do check.
2. Leave ONE comment with the name of the book(s) you'd like to be entered for to win. You can enter for more than one book, but you can only WIN one book. So we will have FIVE individual winners, each receiving ONE book. Make sense? OK!
3. If you leave more than ONE comment, extras will be deleted. Winners will be picked randomly. Winners will be listed sometime after Aug. 5. Hopefully the next day :-)
4. These are the books; each is an advanced reader's copy though they may be called by different names such as bound galley, advance uncorrected galley, uncorrected proof, etc. If you've never seen one of these before, they look like trade paperbacks.
5. Open to US/Canada residents only. Sorry, but I can't afford overseas postage.
6. Make sure you leave an email in your comment or already have it listed in your profile. You can't win if I can't email you!
