Fool for Books Giveaway Hop - My 40th Birthday, Your Gifts!


Forty.  40 years.  The big 4-0.  Over the hill?  Not quite yet.  I may be in shock over this big milestone, but I'm still going to celebrate.  And YOU get to benefit!  No foolin'!

Welcome to the next stop on the Fool for Books Giveaway Hop, sponsored by The Bookish Snob and I Am a Reader, Not a WriterBe sure to check out the other stops on the hop and enter to win-- there are hundreds of sites giving away all sorts of book-related treats.  But be quick about it, as this hop only lasts for two days.  The full listing of blogs is at the bottom of this post.

So here's what we have for giveaway-- all of these books are Advanced Copies (ARCs).  The ones I've reviewed for The Calico Critic are gently used.

I'm going to have three winners.  Winner #1 will get first pick, winner #2 second pick, winner #3 third pick.  Here are the books available:


Here are the rules for entering the giveaway:
  • Leave a comment below; this counts as your only required entry.  In order to filter out spam, all comments will not post until I've had a chance to approve them.
  • Entries accepted until 11:59pm EST on Saturday, April 2nd.
  • The winners must supply a US mailing address for prize shipment.
  • Make sure at least one posted comment includes your email address. If you'd rather not have your email posted here, you may contact me directly to give me that information after you've entered here.
  • I will compile the entries and the three winners will be chosen by Random.org, so even one entry can make you a winner.
  • Should you win, I will contact you on Sunday, April 3rd.  Please take measures to ensure that my email will make it past your spam filters, lest you miss my message. (CalicoCritic@gmail.com) You'll have 72 hours to respond before I pick another winner.
  • More information on the giveaway policies can be found on the Contact / Policies page.


Bonus Entries

Please make note of all your bonus entries in your comment(s).  You may post either separate comments or a single large comment.  Here are your bonus entry options:
  • Follow The Calico Critic by clicking on the Google "Follow" button on my sidebar (old or new followers both get the bonus entry, just please let me know your follower name).
  • Follow me (@LHartness) on Twitter and tell me your @UserName.
  • Tweet about the giveaway on Twitter.com; be sure to use an URL linking back to this blog posting in your tweet. You may do this as frequently as every 8 hours between now and April 2nd at 11:59pm EST.  For each tweet, please come back and post the direct URL link to that specific tweet, not just your @Username.



That's it!  Thanks for stopping by, and good luck to all the entrants!


NOTE: Two entries had to be deleted because they came in after the 11:59pm EST deadline:

hsiu_an(at)hotmail(dot)com





And happy 16th wedding anniversary to my darling husband-- the last year was definitely our best one yet!  Love you!
