Mid-Winter’s Eve Giveaway Hop 2011

December 21, 2011 at 1:00 AM (Blog Hops, Giveaways) (, , , )

Thanks for stopping by!

This blog hop is hosted by I Am A Reader, Not A Writer & Oasis For YA.

Much thanks to them for hosting!

Some rules:

-Must be over 13 years old.  If you are under 18, you must have parent/guardian permission.
-Giveaway is international as long as The Book Depository ships to you.  Check here.
-Giveaway ends on December 27, 2011 at 11:59 PM PST.
-Two winners will be chosen by random.org.

-You contact information provided on THIS FORM counts as your entry.
-You are not required to re-post or follow me to enter this giveaway, but it is appreciated.

I will send an email to the winners after the giveaway ends.

The winners must respond within 72 hours or new winners will be chosen.

Now, what do you get?

I know this isn’t a holiday season for everyone around the world,
but I thought I’d support the idea of family for this hop.

So I’m offering up to $20 (US) worth of books where family plays a major role (good or bad).

This can be interpreted in different ways.
Think of Mackie and Tate’s respective families in Brenna Yovanoff’s The Replacement,
Coraline’s two families in Coraline by Neil Gaiman,
or even the Pevensies in The Chronicles of Narnia by C. S. Lewis.
These are just suggestions. There are so many possibilities with this theme.
Godparents and the like count as well.  Sometimes family is more than blood.

The books will come from either from Amazon or The Book Depository.

I will be asking for some choices on the form.  These can change.

Good luck everyone!

Thanks for stopping by!
