{ArmchairBEA Day 4}: Giveaways!

Design by Amber of Shelf Notes

Today's topic:  One of the favorite days of past years is our day of giveaways! You host the giveaway on your own site and link it up here for all our participants to come and visit. Don’t forget to give Armchair BEA a little love when advertising, but you can choose your own guidelines and deadlines.

If you are a faithful reader of this blog, you'll know that I rarely do giveaways.  It's not because I don't want to.  It's usually because whatever books I read/review, I either use in my classroom, pass on to another teacher who might be able to use the book, or give to my friend's kids.  I rarely keep anything for myself.

However, today (mark your calendars), I am hosting a giveaway---United States only, sorry international peeps, it's just too expensive.  It's pretty simple.  To enter:
1.  You must live in the US
2.  You must be 13 years of age or older.
3.  Fill out the form with your name, email, snail mail address and select a category (primary/picture books, elementary, middle grades or young adult).  You choose the category, I'll choose the book. 
4.  One entry per person.

For one day only, I am going to give away a book from the 2014-2015 Virginia Reader's Choice nomination list.  So, click here to see the nominated books.  I'm partial to the elementary list, but I'm not going to pressure anyone into choosing that.  Again though, you choose the category, I'll choose a book from the list and ship it to you.

I also have some handmade notebooks and bookmarks.  I'd like to start selling them on Etsy, but, I don't know about you, but as soon as I make something, I think it's horrible, and I need someone to tell me that it isn't (or if it is, how I can improve it).  So, if you are a lucky winner, I'll send you a notebook and bookmark and in return, you give me some constructive feedback.
Top Row:  1, 2, 3
Bottom Row:  4, 5, 6

So, in the form, just tell me which number you'd like. 

So, you have until midnight TONIGHT to enter.  Once responses go into google forms, they get assigned a number.  I'll use a random number generator to pick the winner.  I will contact the winner (hopefully) on Friday, but no later than Saturday to let them know they've won.  Good luck!

I love how I try to embed something AND IT NEVER WORKS!  It can't be me every time, can it?  Anyway, here is the link to the form:  
Sorry for any inconvenience!   

Any deviation from the above rules will get your entry thrown out (meaning---no cheating!)  Good luck!


  1. No form showing for me. Maybe my computer or I could just be losing my mind. lol

    1. Drat! Thank you for telling me! I would have sat all night and worried about nobody entering my giveaway! You should just be able to click the link and it will take you to the form. Sorry!

  2. Oooh, groovy giveaway. I'm wild about that yellow notebook :D Thanks!!

  3. I had an Etsy shop for about a year. I too was plagued with self doubt, but when someone actually buys something it's awesome!

  4. Lovely giveaway! And those notebooks are adorable. They all are beautiful!!

  5. Thanks for the giveaway! All the notebooks are very pretty, but #6 is especially adorable! =)

  6. Thanks for the giveaway! I'm loving these notebooks!
