Grab Bag Giveaway


This is the first of what I hope to be a monthly giveaway!  For the first month this will be limited to the U.S. and Canada.  Depending on how well this goes over I would like to go international with it.

I love grab bag gifts, I have since I was little. There is just something about choosing a gift at random and the anticipation of finding out what you got. I also love Half Price Books and I spend a great deal of time there.  While there I always find some amazing deals and I want to start sharing the wealth! I have started amassing a giveaway pile during my last few excursions there and now it's time to start sharing.

The details:
  • Your prize will be a gently used book or books
  • The winner will be contacted and asked to pick a number from a pre-determined set (such as 1-10). Your prize will be completely random based on the number that you pick. Genres of prize books include mystery/thriller, romance, paranormal, sci-fi, fantasy, historical fiction, horror ** The winner will be able to choose which genre(s) that their prized gets picked from. (That way no one ends up with a genre they absolutely hate!) **
  • The giveaway will be open from now until 12:01am EST on June 15th.
  • The winner will be picked on June 16th and contacted via e-mail.  The winner will have 48 hours to respond. If there is no response after 48 hours I will choose another winner.  
To enter, simply fill out the rafflecopter below.  If you choose to do a review of your prize please let me know and I would love to post and link to your review.  Good luck!

  1. Hmm... Intriguing! Thanks for posting about this on GoodReads!

    Good Surprises can be fun and make you feel alive. But I doubt anyone out there wants bad surprises. Big Money, Big Prizes! No Whammies!
