Bookish Musings, Banter & More
Well here we are. Several of you entered the first giveaway, whether or not you won a book this time around keep entering for any titles you are interested in. If anyone doesn’t give titles in their comment they will get a choice of the titles left by the time their name comes up as one of the lucky new owners of some of my book surplus.
First off the winners from Giveaway #1 and their new to them books:
Brenda – Deuteronomy Project
Charity & Sandy – Enclave
Mary – Chosen
Julia – Not Far From the Tree
Carole – Necessary Heartbreak
(you all should have received an Email from me requesting mailing addresses – if for some reason you miss the email you can use the contact form at the top of any of my blog pages. If I don’t hear back from anyone by June 16th, a new name will be drawn from the entrants for that giveaway to receive the unclaimed title(s).
Now on to the books for Giveaway #2:
Once Blind (not a true ARC but is a review copy of the final edition)
Ruby Among Us (ARC)
Guardian of the Flame (ARC)
A Sister’s Secret
The Bridegrooms (2 winners)
These are all used copies in that I have read them or started to except for one copy of The Bridegrooms which can’t be told apart from the one I did read. These are all in nearly new condition except for notations above. ARC is an Advanced Reader Copy or Edition as the terminology is used interchangeably. Once Blind is not a retail purchased copy and as such has a label affixed to the cover from the publicity company that furnished it for review purposes.
Leave a comment with an email address I can reach you at if your name is drawn & which title/titles you are interested in. I will draw names for all above listed books in two weeks and notify the winners as well as post them on the next post listing the new set of books I’m giving away.
