BAFABW is here again!

This is a sticky note. This post will remain on top until Saturday, April 7. Please scroll down for newer posts.



I am so excited. This is one of my favorite times of the year (and I get to be excited about it four times!). Yes... tomorrow begins "Buy a Friend a Book Week". To me, reading definitely is FUNdamental and I'm dedicated to spread the FUN all week long. And, something else that is FUN for me is a contest. So...

Last BAFABW, I chose a book for one of my closest IRL friend (hi, Lianne!). This quarter, I wish I could send a book to all my blogging friends, but I'm not a rich, famous author (yet). So, I'll do the next best thing. I'm going to buy one lucky commenter his/her book of choice from Amazon ($20 maximum, please). Feel free to comment every day. The contest will run from Sunday, April 1, through Saturday, April 7. Sometime on the morning of the 8th, I'll put the number of comments into random.org and somebody will be the lucky winner of a book of their choice.

Karen and Marianne are, also, both having contests this week. Make sure to visit them and comment. Tell them I sent you (it probably won't help in the contest, but it will be fun). And... if you know of anyone else contesting this week, let me know and I will add them as well.

EDITED TO ADD: Check out these sites for more contests.

Put my name in, too. I'm going to be putting a BAFAB drawing on my site, so come by and add your name.

Marianne Arkins said...

Count me in! I have you listed on the site... isn't it fun?

Tori Lennox said...

I was thinking instead of a friend, per se, I'd buy a book and donate it to our little library. I'm sure they don't have a very big book budget. Would that count, do you think?

Judy said...

Hi, Karen!!

Booklogged, I will definitely add you to the list and I'll see you on your site.

Marianne, I love contests... winning and giving.

Tori, I don't see any reason why that wouldn't count. I think it's a great idea.
