Today Buster drew a name from Buddy's cap to pick the winner for this month's the Pay It Forward Book Exchange. I got the idea for this from Overwhelmed with Joy. I plan to give away a book to one of my readers in the first week of every month until I run out of books. Here's how it is played:
1) Once a month I'll pick a book to give away to one lucky reader (you don’t have to have a blog to enter). It may be a book that I’ve purchased new or used, or it may be a book that someone has shared with me that I really like. It’ll probably be a paperback, just to make things easier, but no guarantees.
2) All you have to do to enter the giveaway is leave me a comment on this post. I'll draw names out of a hat on Saturday, September 8.
3) If you’re the lucky winner of the book giveaway and you have your own blog I ask that you,in turn, host a drawing to give that book away for free to one of your readers, after you’ve had a chance to read it (let’s say, within a month after you’ve received the book). If you mail the book out using the media/book rate that the post office offers it’s pretty inexpensive. If you're a non-blogger who has won the book, please consider donating the book to your local library or shelter after you're done with it.
4) If you’re really motivated and want to host your own “Pay It Forward” giveaway at any time, feel free to grab the button above to use on your own blog. Just let Overwhelmed know so she can publish a post plugging your giveaway and directing readers your way!
The Pay It Forward Book Exchange is designed to encourage people to read, to share good books, to possibly get you out of your reading comfort zone, and to get fun stuff in the mail instead of just bills!
This month I am giving away Copper Crown by Lane von Herzen. It's a really great book that I loved reading. I reviewed it here.
And the winner is.... Lorie!! Lorie's Stitch in Time is her blog. Send me your snail mail Lori and I will post your book ASAP. Come back in the first week of every month for another book give away everyone!
