Another Box of Books Up For Grabs!

The people at Hachette Book Goup USA have GOT to be the nicest people ever. Back in June/early July they did the 14 book giveaway. And now they want to give FIVE people a box of TEN books. It’s called the Back to School Book Bonanza.

Cute, eh?

How do you enter, you ask? I’m glad you asked. Here’s how you can enter:

  • Leaving a comment on this post will get you one entry.
  • To get three more entries, post about this on your blog with a link back to this post.
  • If you don’t have a blog, email five friends telling them about this giveaway and cc me on the email so I know you’ve sent it. This will get you three more entries. If you have a blog and still want to email five friends, be my guest.
  • For each thoughtful comment you make on any post from 2007, you’ll get one extra entry. Believe me, those posts are cringe worthy.

If you don’t have a blog and have never commented on my blog, please leave more of a comment than “Enter me please.” Because then I will assume you’re a prize pig and I will forget to enter you in the drawing. Sorry…but I know I’m not the only one you irritate.

I’ll draw a winner on September 10th. I’ll close this post for comments when I draw the winner, so as long as you can still comment here, you can still enter!

    The Book of Calamities looks especially interesting. I know sometimes it’s easier just to not think about the horrible things that are going on in the world instead of confronting their reality. I like also that it deals with the resilience of those faced by tragedy.

    I would be excited to receive this wonderful prize full of books!

  2. Julie P.

    I’m not the first one this time!!!! I’m incredible how many books Hatchette is sharing!

    oink, oink, lol

    you (I mean I) learn something everyday, but it shouldn’t be surprising, I guess, that people get organized and take advantage of little giveaways. Good for you.

    Luckily, you can make your rules and no federal regulators will come by to watch you ‘randomly’ pick a winner. I trust you Trish!

  4. wordlily

    Wow, the Hachette giveaways the past several months really are incredible. So many books!

    Prize pig. Now that is funny. I think I count as a fairly regular commenter so hopefully I won’t be put out to pasture.

  10. donstuff

    I never (ever) win anything, so I’m more of an entry pig than a prize pig.
    Anyway… A Whack in the side of the head is part of a trilogy, along with A Poke in the Side, and A Kick in the Seat of the Pants (I had the cassette tape series 25 years ago). The author (von Oech) earned a doctorate in Creativity from Stanford (back in the 70s).
    I also like just about anything Maxwell writes on leadership.

    Thanks for encouraging others to read.

    This is a great giveaway. I especially want to read “Say You’re One of Them.” And do I understand you correctly — we are to comment on posts from 2007, not 2008?
