[Unless I already have your address from an earlier giveaway (you know who you are) please either reply to the email you received from me or use the contact button at the top of any of my blog pages to send me your US or Canadian mailing address and full name to address the package to. Hope you all enjoy these books as much as I have.] If I don’t receive your mailing info by Aug 11, I will redraw for those books. When all winners are confirmed meaning I have mailing information I will send out your books.
And the news you’ve all been waiting for the next list of books, I will draw winners on Sun Aug 22nd. This is the final giveaway of the Summer though not the end of giveaways at Bibliophile’s Retreat. I will be taking a break from giveaways for a bit so I can catch up on some of my reviews.
Deceptive Promises: Gently used finished retail copy. Near new condition.
A Sister’s Hope: ARC gently used. Near new condition.
The Echo Within: Gently used finished retail copy. Near new condition.
Hurricanes In Paradise: Gently used finished retail copy. Near new condition.
The Poet Prince: Practically straight off the shelf. Unfortuneately, this book has barely been cracked by me and I didn’t read enough of it before I was turned off to the story because of content that was inaccurate. Yes this is fiction but I have certain standards about books that claim to be Christian and then include events or assertions that run counter to the central beliefs of the faith they are claiming inspiration from. Well enough of my tirade on that particular topic. If no one is interested in this book I certainly understand but you never know if someone else might have a different point of view or interpretation so I’m offering it anyway with the previous disclaimer.
Unless otherwise stated retail editions were received for review purposes. Duplicate copies may be in new condition, if they are ones I read previously. If they are not duplicates then although I have read them, they are still in nearly new condition as I am very gentle with my books. An ARC is an Advanced Reader Copy or Edition as the terminology is used interchangeably.
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.
