Winter 'Spring Cleaning' Giveaway!

My book collection has gotten to the point where I can no longer keep all the books I have accrued over time. So I have decided to cull my collection and because I would never, ever, throw out a book, I have decided to hold a giveaway so they can go to new homes where they will be loved (not that they haven't been loved by me!).

There will be 4 prize packs you can win.
1st prize - Your choice of 4 of the below titles.
2nd prize - Your choice of 3 of the below titles.
3rd prize - Your choice of 2 of the below titles.
4th Prize - Your choice of 1 of the below titles.

1st prize will have first pick of the books, then 2nd, then 3rd and then finally 4th. Unfortunately, because of the cost of shipping, 1st and 2nd prize will be for Australian residents only but I haven't forgotten everyone else, 3rd and 4th prize will be international. Entries are open until August 11th 2011 until 11:59pm Australian Western Standard Time. To enter, please fill out the form below. You must be a follower via Google Friend Connect and there are many ways to gain extra entries.

If you win I will email you and you have 48 hours to respond before I draw a new winner. When you receive your email, please reply with which books you would like. If the prize winner before you has already chosen one of your choices, I'll notify you and you can pick another book on the list

Thankyou to Ramona Wray, Elle, Penguin Books Australia and Walker Books Australia who originally supplied me with some of these books.


  1. Thanks a lot for the chance and have a great week!

  2. I want to add your button to my new blog. But I am still a bit confused with it all. How do I do it? :S

  3. Jammie - If you mean the one for the giveaway, I didn't make any code for it this time. Just save the image and use a picture gadget to add it to your sidebar. In the gadget window, it has an option so that when someone clicks on the picture, it will take them to where ever the link goes. Just put this web address page as the link.

    Or if you mean the button for The Tales Compendium, again use a gadget but use the HTML one. Copy the button code and paste it into the gadget window.

    Does this make sense? Feel free to email me if you still need help. Thanks for wanting to put the button on your site :)

  4. this is such a good idea. i need to get rid of a bundle of books too
