[NOTE: Oh, the madness! At this point, I’m about to have to give away two books to contest winners. If people keep subscribing, I may break the bank! Good job! Shorthand way to enter: subscribe to this blog and leave an entry on this post. Read this post to find ways to increase your chances of winning!]
I made a new friend recently, Michelle, a college student, lover of books and book reviewer from Books and Boston.
Today I am stealing from her (because that’s just the kind of friend I am).
She is having a contest to reward her subscribers to her blog. She’s giving away the book of your choice (value up to $20) from Book Depository, a great bookstore that ships books all over the world with no shipping fees, to any country on this very long list. So if you live in any of these countries and subscribe to her blog, you can enter this contest, which ends on December 17, 2011.
However, I’m going one step farther and stealing her idea and doing the same damned thing!
ONE CHANCE TO WIN: If you are already a subscriber to my blog, just leave a comment. You might tell me which book you crave, if price were no object (or anything else you want to say, for that matter).
If you aren’t a subscriber yet, come on, subscribe! This is your chance at the goodies! [Just type your email address into the window on the sidebar on the right, subscribe! You’ll get notified by email when I post something new.]
ANOTHER CHANCE TO WIN: Follow me on twitter and comment here to tell me you did,, and you will get TWO chances.
ANOTHER CHANCE TO WIN: If you retweet this contest on twitter or Facebook, leave a comment here telling me that you did.
A DOUBLE-CHANCE TO WIN: Blog about this, link back to me, and come comment that you’ve done it? A whopping TWO MORE CHANCES!
That means you could have as many as 5 chances to win a book for Christmas.
And if you go do the same for Michelle at Books and Boston, you will have TEN chances. Her contest is over, but mine is not! See? Lots of chances to win two books!
Come on, do it. (And you know what? If I get 50 subscribers–which at this point on a brand new, unpublicized blog, would be kind of unexpected) I’ll give away more than one book. How many? I dunno. Depends on how many subscribers.
So. Who’s in?
Hey, while you’re at it, if you’re a blogger you can spread the book love. Steal the idea from me (and Michelle) and let’s cover the blogosphere with free books!
MY contest ends January 6, 2012. That gives you lots of time to enter and to spread the word and help me get enough subscribers to give away more books.
Ready? Set? Go!
