Buy a Friend a Book Week

buyafriendabook.com

*** Sticky post, scroll down for new entries ***

As this is the first week of January, that means Buy a Friend a Book Week (BAFAB) is here! What are the rules? I could hear you asking. It is pretty simple. Below is a list of books which I am going to give away to 3 lucky participants, and all you need to do is:

1. Leave a comment on this post and tell me which book(s) you want to win. You may enter your name for each book but you can only win one book (so that other participants will have a chance to win too);

2. Your name will be entered twice if you do a post about this giveaway, so please send me the link to your post.

Closing date is 8 January 2008 and the names will be drawn randomly by my husband as I don't think I can persuade the cats to do it sadly. The winners will be announced on 9 January 2008.

Here is the list of books to be won:

1) Spirits in the Wires - Charles de Lint

2) Magical Tales - RJ Stewart

3) Anastasia Krupnik - Lois Lowry

Edited to add other participants in this:

How cool! Now I said I would try not to BUY any more books, nothing about not WINNING them ;) So throw me in the hat for the De Lint and Lowry book. They both sound great! And yay! Now I can buy a book to satisfy my craving, it just can't be for me...I'll buy Megan one :)

Marg said...

Stephanie said...

This is my first BAFAB week as a participant (busy choosing my target today, in fact) and it would be sweet to win the Lowry book as well. I led discussions on several of her books (Messenger, Gathering Blue) in my daughter's 6th grade humanities class and have become a big fan of Lois Lowry. Thanks for entering me! - Stephanie

Erin said...

I'm putting the fact that I knew nothing about BAFAB before now down to being so new to blogging! I can think of one or two people who would appreciate a book.

I would also like to put my name in for the Stewart book, if you please. I have posted about it in my own little blog here.

Bebemiqui said...

I'd love to win either the de Lint book or Anastasia because of my daughter!!

Hi Rhinoa,
I arrived here through RaiderGirl at An Adventure in Reading and would love to be entered in your drawing for the Lois Lowry book, Anastasia Krupnik. I love this idea of buying a friend a book. My Mom's birthday was January 9th and I always try to think of a way to honor her memory. She was an avid reader, so I'm going to borrow your idea and also do a drawing to give a friend a book on her birthday. (I hope that's okay with you...). I will post your link tommorrow. Have a wonderful day!

Danielle said...

Any would be great! But my #1 pick would be Spirits in the Wires!
