And Now...the Giveaway You've Been Waiting for!

  
CLOSED

Sorry for the delay, everyone. I had to work today, so my post is happening later than everyone else's. However, good things come to those who wait, and I have the book giveaway to prove it!

http://theedgeoftheprecipice.blogspot.com/p/the-great-book-giveaway-bonanza.html

Click on the picture above to be linked to The Edge of the Precipice and a bunch of other giveaways happening right now! Also, make sure you read through the rules below; they're a little different than how I usually do giveaways.

Boring Rules First:
1) To enter, leave a comment with your top three choices of prizes in order (first, second, third). Make sure you leave a valid e-mail address in the comment as well, so I can contact you if you win.
2) For a second entry, tell me which other giveaways in this bonanza you visited (you are not required to enter them, just to visit, and this only qualifies for one entry, even if you visited all of the other giveaways).
3) Leave your comments by 11:59pm Central U.S. time on Friday, June 26th.
4) Winners will be contacted by 11:59pm on Monday, June 29th and must respond with a valid mailing address by Sunday, July 5th or their prizes are forfeit to the next randomly drawn winner.
5) Prizes can be shipped anywhere USPS will allow me to ship them.
6) If there are more prizes than entrants, winners will be eligible to win more than one book.

All of the prizes are used but in good condition. Some are former library books found in sales; some are just extra copies I had on hand. The covers pictured are the ones you will be receiving. (All pictures of prizes taken from Goodreads with the exception of the last one, which was taken from Amazon.) All classics this time! I hope you find one or more that you like!

 A Room with a View by E.M. Forster,
reviewed by me here;

 Anne of Avonlea by L.M. Montgomery,
sequel to Anne of Green Gables;

 A Tale of Two Cities / Great Expectations: Two Novels
by Charles Dickens;

 Middlemarch by George Eliot;

 Northangey Abbey by Jane Austen,
my favorite author of all time;

Jude the Obscure by Thomas Hardy.

And with that I say, good luck!

  3. This is great, thank you!!!

    My first choice:
    1. Anne of Avonlea
    2. A Tale of Two Cities
    3. Northanger Abbey

    I live in Belgium, so I hope shipping would be all-right! I really hope I will win Anne of A. :-) Thanks so much!

    I have entered Hamlette's, Ashley's and Emma's give-aways - not the others due to shipping-problems or because I already have the books or because I'm not really interested in the books. :-)

    Thanks again!

    1. Oh, about the e-mail adress. I prefer not to publish it on the internet... how do I do this as the comments publish immediately? Maybe you could leave you e-mail-adress on my blog and I could e-mail you that way (I won't publish the comment, as comments on my blog are moderated before published.)

    2. Oh, and I HAVE visited all give-aways, although not entered them all. :-)

  19. I was wondering why giveaway hosts in the hop are asking to put in an email address...if someone is commenting using gmail, I think the blogger can see that if they check.

    I have stopped so far at:

    Along the Brandywine (Heidi Peterson)
    A to Z (Ashley)
    The Edge of the Precipice (Hamlette)
    Flowers of Quiet Happiness (Kara)
    A Lantern in Her Hand (Emma)
    Meanwhile in Rivendell (Olivia)

    1. Good point. I guess sometimes people comment through different sources or have a separate email address for giveaways and such. For me, this is just faster and if for some reason the links in your profile don't work, I'll still have your email.

    2. But I'm deleting yours now so people won't see it anymore. Thanks for entering!

  20. Great books! My choices would be Anne of Avonlea, Middlemarch and A Tale of Two Cities.

    I'm using a google profile, so would it be ok if I don't include my e-mail address for privacy reasons? Thanks!

    1. I would say yes, but I can't seem to find a link to your e-mail through your profile or blog even, so that makes it difficult for me if you win. My e-mail address is hew1988(at)gmail(dot)com if you're more comfortable emailing me your entry. (The words in parentheses are symbols, so I don't get hit with a bunch of spam.) Or some people have commented with their email and immediately deleted it so only I see it. I do not keep email addresses after the giveaway winners have been chosen and prizes sent off unless you choose to strike up a personal conversation with me via email. Be sure to say something about the giveaway in the subject so I don't miss it. Good luck!
