June Blast-O-Books!

Update! We've added MORE books ALREADY!!!


I'M DOING IT AGAIN!
June Blast-O-Books!


OK, I didn’t think I’d be doing this again so soon after the March Madness Book A Day Giveaway, but what better way to kick off summer than with a bunch of fun book reviews, features and giveaways, right?

RIGHT!

So, here’s what we’re going to do for the first part of June: Let’s start giving away some books next week, shall we? Every day until the book offers stop coming through, I’ll give away a book to a lucky reader. And same as last time, if you enter every day, I’ll put your name in to win a grand prize at the end, which will be a batch of books. This time the grand prize will be a random batch of books – some will be a selection of those that I’m giving away in June, and some will be some random extra books I have here. Plus I may toss in a Target gift card or a Starbucks card, and some other fun stuff; we’ll just have to see what I’m in the mood for giving away.

One thing that many of you were confused about last time was that some of you thought that you were not all included as many times as you entered daily. You were. If you leave a comment on EVERY post every time I offer you a book, your name will be entered in the final grand prize drawing THAT many times, whether you win a book or not. Guaranteed. So rest assured that even if you don’t win any of the books for the next 15 book giveaways (or however many I give away), your name will go into the ‘hat’ that many times to be eligible to win the grand prize.

This promo is called the June Blast-O-Books, and for now I’ve got these books committed, and there are possibly more to come, so stay tuned, and we’ll kick this bad boy off on Monday June 6th! However, unlike in March, I will be taking the weekends off! Some of the books being offered this time around will be e-books!

Maine by J. Courtney Sullivan

The One That I Want by Allison Winn Scotch

Here are some of the rules we played by from last time:
Sorry, but if you live outside of the U.S. or Canada, we can’t deliver books to you. You’re the lucky one who gets to live somewhere exotic, so that’s the one downfall you’ve got to suffer by not being able to win here.

Enter only once per book, but remember, if you don’t win that day, you will still be entered to win whatever the ‘grand’ prize I choose to make grand at the end of this June Blast-O-Books!

Use a unique identifying name when leaving your comment (JEN is NOT UNIQUE, but JEN36 IS UNIQUE – get it?), and preferably please try to leave a way for me to contact you if you can. Usually I will announce the book winner 3-5 days after I post the book review at the TOP of the post, so it’s important to COME BACK to the post to see if you have won.

You must contact me at stephanieelliot@gmail.com to claim your book. For the most part, I won’t come looking for you to give you your prize.

I use random.org to choose the winners.

Any questions, feel free to ask them in the comment section!
