Mother's Day Book Bash - Rules

This post will remain on top, but the giveaway posts will keep popping up below. Keep checking back frequently.


A Book Blogger’s Diary

It's HERE!

Wow, you won't believe the TREMENDOUS response I've gotten from sponsors for my Mother's Day Book Bash. Thanks to their generosity, the list of prizes is staggering! So, let's spread the loot, shall we. Don't worry, there's something in it for you (read below).

There's a ton of book prizes being given away, but each has a different set of eligibility, so be sure to read individual giveaway post carefully. But the rules are the same. So refer back to this post if you're unsure. (Responses are still coming in, so the prize list may grow further!)

The Deadline to enter is midnight CST, May 11 (Mother's Day).

*** Edited ***

Apparently the rules were too complex and it looked like people were getting confused. So here's my attempt at simplifying them.

---------------------------------------------------

1) Blog this giveaway (link to this post please and
preferably with a Book Bash button which you'll find here). Leave a comment AT THIS POST with the link to your post about this giveaway and your email address. (no email address = no entry) You get One entry in all the giveaways for this.

Easy, isn't it? Blog away! As an added bonus - After the giveaway's conclusion, I'll make a separate post of all the Bloggers who kindly blogged this giveaway and send some linky love your way!


2) Leave a comment on the individual sponsor posts for a second entry. Purely up to you of course, but I'm sure the Sponsors will appreciate it. I've included their link in the posts. If you want, in your comment (at the individual sponsor post) indicate your top 3 choices from among the prize books.

I'll try to accommodate your preferences, but that may not always be possible.


3) All subscribers of this blog (bloggers or non-bloggers) get one automatic entry into all the Mother's Day Giveaways here. So, even if you don't have a blog, you can still enter to win! Just Subscribe away.

4) Whenever someone participates and says your recommendation sent them here, YOU get 3 extra entries.

---------------------------------------------------

Multiple books = Multiple winners. Free books, people!! And to think, I can't enter, lol.

I'll announce the winners here as soon as humanly possible after the giveaway concludes. I'll also email them for their full name and addresses. If a winner doesn't respond within 5 days of my emailing them, an alternate winner will be chosen.

I think that about covers everything, right? What... where are the giveaway posts/prizes?

Lol, they're below this post. Scroll down. I'll keep posting as and when I can, so keep checking back frequently. This post will remain on top, but the giveaway posts will keep popping up below.


Also, GIVEAWAYs galore are up at my other blog, including special MOTHER'S DAY GIVEAWAYS @ A Bookworm's Diary

  17. To be honest, I haven't been a READER in a long, long time. I used to read constantly. I have recently retired and my husband is having hip surgery in a couple of weeks, so I will have a lot of time on my hands and "empty space" in my head just looking for stimulation, imagination, education!! Need a good book to get started.

  25. Hi Book Blogger, I don't know how to blog but I signed up with my email and I do know how to comment. Looked up the book prizes, wow what a list, especially like "Chix Can Fix", "Things I Want My Daughters to Know", and " and for my guilty pleasure "SEX AND THE CITY - KISS AND TELL". Thanks for such a great giveaway!

  28. Wow, a lot of responses! I'm so thrilled :) Thanks - you're a great bunch of readers!!

    All those who've commented anonymously - I just hope you're a subscriber of this blog, as I have no means of contacting you otherwise.

    Bloggers who've blogged but left no email address, or have chosen not to make their profiles public - I'd love to enter you, but sorry, I can't. That would be unfair to all those who've followed the Rules faithfully.

    Not all of us blog and most of my giveaways are open to Non-Bloggers as well. All you need to do is Subscribe to this blog, A Book Blogger's Diary

    I'm having fun reading your entries and it's so nice to see others infected by the same bookworm bug as I am :)

    Don't forget to check back next week and see who won!

  33. Your Mother's Day giveaway is the best! I love reading but the problem is that I can't put the book down when I start it. It's ridiculous. Oh well....it's so much fun.
