BAFAB Week


This upcoming week is "Buy A Friend A Book Week and I found this great activity over at Write From Karen's site and am thrilled to participate. How it works (in short Amanda terms) is that I want to buy one of you a book of your choice (under $15.00) and all you have to do in order to enter is leave a comment on this posting. I will randomly pick a name on April 5th and one of you will be the lucky recipient of a book of your choice! I will post the lucky winner's name by the evening of April 5th. Isn't this FUN?! Yay for free books! If anyone else would like to participate, let me know so I can put my name in your "hat" for a free friend book! This is a great program and I really hope a lot of you will plan on participating. My funds are low right now, but I still want to experience this lovely giving of books. Don't forget to leave your name!

That is really bizarro Amanda.
Before reading your blog tonight, I did the same thing on my own blog.... only mine is a skill-testing question contest sort of thing.
And [coincidentally, and I am not kidding at all] I too, am low on funds. Yet I wanted to really do this!
Let me say it this way!
I hope I win your contest here.
And.... I hope that you win MINE!
All the best!

Will this work? I'll throw my name in the hat. But if by some chance you choose my name, I want you to buy a book for yourself. But you have to review it for us...I love reading your reviews!

Amanda said...

You're so nice Debi! Thank you! However, if I do pull your name, I'm still going to try to get you to name a book you want! It could be a scrapbooking idea book (which I too love :-). Thanks for entering!

Jen said...

Consider my name officially in the hat. I've read about this program before (Gail Gauthier is a big proponent of Buy A Friend a Book week), but you, with your excitement, are the first to encourage me to participate. Thanks!

I love book drawings. I've done this one before. Thought I wouldn't this month because I just gave away some stuff for the Classics Challenge and my blogiversary . . . on second thought, I'm low on funds, too, so why not join in the fun. So enter my name in the drawing and then stop by my blog and enter to win.

Marianne Arkins said...

Count me in! Isn't this fun?

I posted your contest on my blog (with my BAFABW contest and others that I've come across).

Hope that's okay!

Susan Helene Gottfried said...

Ooh, cool. I'm doing a contest, too. BAFAB week is always fun! (no need to enter me in your contest; rather, come join mine! There are two ways to win)

Sandy said...

I love BAFAB. Enter my name.

Did someone say reading material? *_*

Faith said...

Throw my name in the hat, and I'll start the same thing over on my blog. What a cool thing! :)

Amelia said...

I am putting my name in the hat :)

I'll be posting the contest on my blog by week's end, so stop over by end of the week to submit your name.

Bookgirl said...

This is so great. I always miss BAFAB but I'm going to try and do something this time. And, sure count me in for the drawing :)

Jennifer said...

I'm planning on buying a book (or three) for friends this week, but please put me in the hat for a book!

Nancy said...

I'll throw my name in, because Jen Robinson made me!

Thanks!

I'd loved to enter. Come on over to my blog because I'm giving a book away as well.

Karen said...

Pick me! Pick me! Pick me!

And please come by and enter my contest too.

Amanda said...

What's the name of your site Karen? I tried going to your profile to find out there, but it's locked!

Stephanie said...

Wow. Cool idea!! Count me in! I wish I had read about this sooner. I would have sponsored my own contest! Guess I'll have to wait till next time.

Literary Feline said...

I'd like to enter too! I had pretty much decided not to participate, but I couldn't help myself. Thanks for entering my drawing and for the recommendations!

schwartzbergj said...

What a fun idea. I hope you don't mind my throwing my hat in too.

Yours,
Jenny
