Giving the Gift of Reading Giveaway Bonanza

November 25th, 2010 by Debbie's World of Books

The turkey’s been eaten and I’m sure you are all over stuffed but what better time to start thinking about buying books for the holidays? If you have been following my blog you know I’ve been compiling shopping lists for all sorts of book lovers.  As a thank you to everyone who participated and to add a little incentive to spread the word I’m having a giveaway bonanza.  So today there are 15 books up for grabs (and don’t forget two sets of The White Queen and The Red Queen by Philippa Gregory are up for grabs here, the 8 book Romance packs are being given away here and a $20 Amazon gift card is also available here).

So all in all that means you have the chance of winning 27 books or an Amazon gift card!

Here are the shopping lists in case you missed any of them:

Children’s Books

Historical Fiction

Mystery/Suspense/Thriller/Action

Romance

Sci-Fi/Fantasy

Young Adult Fiction

Before getting to the giveaways I have some thank yous in addition to those who answered my survey and responded to all the previous giveaways.  I couldn’t have done all of this without help from:

Everyone who donated books to this wonderful event over the past weeks including: Dutton Books, Simon and Schuster, Chronicle Books, Pam from Bookalicio.us, Bohlsen PR, Goodman Media, Hachette Book Group, Avon Books and Brandy from the Babycenter Book Club.

I also want to thank Pam from Bookalicio.us, Michelle from GalleySmith, Lori from Pure Imagination and Sabrina from YA Bliss for providing book blurbs/review links to some of the top picks and to two of my favorite bloggers Kristin from Bookworming in the 21st Century and Danielle from There’s a Book for helping get word out about this event when I asked for help.

 

Now onto the goodies. 

How to win the wonderful prize packs below?

  • Leave a comment with your contact info and the title of a 2011 or 2012 book release you are looking forward to.  Also leave which prize packs you are interested in. (Mandatory)
  • Open to US only (sorry, international folks my hubby was laid off from work so money is tighter than expected so I can’t ship outside the US)
  • Ends December 31. What better way to start off the new year than with new books?

Extra entries (some people love ‘em, some people hate ‘em so it’s up to you)

Since the point is to spread the word as much as possible about this event here are some ways to get extra entries:

  • If you advertised the original post about giving the gift of reading then leave a comment with the link (+3 entries)
  • If you advertise this post (Tweet, Facebook, link to side bar, etc.) leave the link (+1 for each link)
  • If you dedicate a post on your blog to this event and shopping lists then leave the link in the comments) (+5 entries)

Happy Holidays to you all!

Pack 2-From Goodman Media

The Lost Saint by Bree Despain with matching nail polish

Pack 3 from Simon & Schuster

Pack 4 from Pam at Bookalicio.us
