April Prize Draw

The winner of our March prize draw was J C Montgomery who will receive the Softskull book package as well as a few crafty goodies from our craft sponsors (see the sidebar).

I’m going to start up our April competition a little early because I want to tie it in with the 24 hour read-a-thon. If you’re participating as a reader in the 24 hour read-a-thon this year leave a comment on this post (saying you’re a reader)and you will be entered once into the prize draw. At the end of the read-a-thon return here and let me know how many books you read during the 24 hours and you will get an extra entry for each book you read. You must officially sign up as a participant at the 24 hour read-a-thon’s blog to be eligible to enter.

Each book read by participants of The Year of Readers during the 24 hour read-a-thon will also earn quadruple the amount that a regular book read for The Year of Readers usually earns for EcoLibris (so any book read during 24 hour read-a-thon will earn 4p for Eco-Libris).

The prize up for grabs this time is 30 Bookmooch points from my own vast stash. 1 person will win 30 points, 15 of which I will add to your account and 15 of which will go to the Bookmooch charity of your choice. If you don’t have a Bookmooch account you can either start one up and start collecting points (15 points will get you 15 books if they are posted from your own country or 7 from international senders) or donate the whole 30 points to charities (I’m happy to split the charity points between different organisations if you would like). Please note this part of the prize is only for those participating in the 24 hour read-a-thon as readers.

Anyone cheerleading at the 24 hour read-a-thon just needs to comment on this post (saying they are a cheerleader) to be entered to win a copy of ‘Captivity’ by Debbie Lee Wesselman, a handmade bookmark and matching bookplate, handmade bracelet and handmade card.

You can leave your comments any time until noon GMT on April 30th 2009. This competition is open to all official participants of The Year of Readers, taking part in the 24 hour read-a-thon. All winners will be chosen using a random number generator.


Happy Read-a-thon!

I'm a reader and really looking forward to try and best my time (and page count) from last time. [crosses fingers and toes]

I've just signed up as a reader! Must remember to visit the library this afternoon and lay in a stash!

(I've also finally got around to signing up to BookMooch!)

Jodie said...

Wuhoah looking forward to seeing how much you all read.

I'm going to be reading along this weekend too. And I've pledged an additional $5 per book I complete during the read-a-thon for the charity I'm reading for, the Book Wish Foundation.

Peta said...

Just finished - had a great time! I only managed two books this time around but if reading other people's blogs, twitter, facebook & comments and entering challenges counted... ;)

tanabata said...

Whew! Tired but pleased that I managed to read 5 books this time.
Thanks for all you've done to host our Year of Readers!

I was a cheerleader in the read-a-thon. I love that you've incorporated this month's competition with the read-a-thon.
