Buy A Friend A Book (BAFAB)


I completely missed this last time so I'm glad I caught a post about it now. July will be here before we know it and this time we don't want to miss out!


The Good Stuff

The winner will receive the book of their choice up to a $30 value.

Or, if you'd like a $30 certificate from Amazon


The Details

1. Not limited to Book Blog members in the U.S. I know Amazon has UK and Canadian stores so things should go smoothly there. If the winner lives outside the US, UK, or Canada we will work out the details.


2. Stop by this blog post and leave a comment with your name (first name only is fine), Book Blog ID (so that I know I have right person!) and your selected book title.


3. Entry deadline is June 30th. I will annouce the winner the 1st week of July. I will draw a random winner from all entries received. I promise this will be fair as I'm going to use Random.org


4. I believe in sharing the wealth so if you'd like take what you want from this post and share with other readers.


5. If you'd like to know more about BAFAB check out: Buy A Friend A Book

I don't have a book blog id, but I'm hoping that doesn't keep me out of the contest because its fantastic! If I won, I'd probably choose an Amazon gift card because I want to buy a book for my mother to read and since she reads so much, its hard to keep on top of what she needs. Thanks so much!
