World Book Night 2011 (a giveaway)

Well, it’s World Book Night 2011 and I have been spending the day so far logging numbers for the books I am to giveaway on http://www.bookcrossing.com and writing the numbers in the back of the books. Now I am hoping my printer actually works so I can print off the letter to go with them and then comes the delivering.

You can find out more about my plans here https://kirstyes.files.wordpress.com/2011/03/sh-wbn2011.jpgreading/wbn2011/

The book in question is Seamus Heaney’s New Selected Poems 1966 – 1987 and I have decided to give two away via this blog.

All you have to do to get a copy is to post a pick me comment (click on the little pin board to the right of the blog post title) telling me:

Why you would like to receive a copy and what you plan to do with it once you’ve read the wonderful poems it contains.

This giveaway will close one week from World Book Night ( on Sat 12th March 2011, 5pm) and I will select the two winners and contact them to make arrangements for sending the books.

Good Luck

Kirsty

  1. Pick me please!
    I gave two books away on 5th March 2011 for World Book Night and thoroughly enjoyed the giving. One was extra special which I will blog about here http://effiemerryl.blogspot.com/
    I love reading, writing and would love to have a copy of Seamus Heaney’s New Selected Poems.Should I be lucky enough to win one, I would read it and share the poems with my children who also love to read and write. I will read them with interest and try to learn from his technique. I may even buy a copy myself and gift it to a random stranger.
    Thank you.

  2. Thanks Effie,

    Saw the comments about your special book giveaways well done.
    Now I’ve found Book Crossing I may well use that as an excuse to buy some Kindle books and pass the hard copies on.
    Thanks for entering – good luck.

  3. I would love a copy of Seamus Heaney’s work, as I love reading poetry. I have never used bookcrossing before, but I will be happy to log the book if I am lucky enough to receive one and then send it on it’s way.

    Thank you for taking part in what I perceive to be a valuable undertaking: the distribution of free books on World Book Night.

  4. Congrats Effie and Simone, you are the winners.
    If you get your address to me (Effie I have yours) at kirstyes@gmail.com then I will post out to you on Monday.

    Thanks for your interest and hope you enjoy the book.
