Birthday Giveaway '12



Today.

Today.

Drums.

Today. Okay, fine, I'll cut that out. So here's the big announcement:

Today is the day before my birthday! :O 


My birthday is on 31 May, and to celebrate it, I'm going to have cake, coke, fireworks and... A GIVEAWAY!

Since this was my first giveaway, I had absolutely no idea how to organize one. But, after taking a good look around, I have to say I'm more confident now. That's good for both you and me!

Many thanks my blogger friend Linny from Linny's Literature, who has the same birthday month as me. I gathered quite some information from how she organized her giveaways.

So since it is my birthday, the books up for grabs are going to come from my list of everlasting favourites. Now, without further ado, *unveils* here are the books to choose from if you win ;)


The Goose Girl - Eon - The Catastrophic History of You and Me - Heist Society 
The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight - Cinder - Divergent - Insurgent
Firelight - Night Circus - Daughter of Smoke and Bone - Everneath 
Finding Sky - Stealing Phoenix - The Hunt - Falling Under


Just to clear the air, here are some terms and conditions that you have to know before you enter:

1. It's always sad if the giveaway is opened to only US or Canada. So, guess what? ;) This giveaway is open internationally. The prize will be delivered via The Book Depository so do check if the country you live in is listed here. 

2. The PRIZE: It will be any book of your choice listed above. :)

3. Now, I bet you are wondering, from when? Till when? This giveaway begins 12:01am on 31 May 2012 and ends 12:01am on 25 June 2012. 25 June will be the day that I'll be back from my academic tournament (WSC) in Bangkok. Hope to bring you double the good news! 

The winner will be chosen then and I will contact him/her via email. So please do leave your email behind or some means for me to contact you. Note: The winner will have to reply within 48 hours, if not, another winner will be chosen. 

4. Last thing, one special feature about this giveaway is that you can earn entries by commenting. You are allowed to comment once a day for the giveaway. Every comment on any of my blog posts from last year to this year earns you 2 bonus entries. Just follow the instructions on the Rafflecopter. What can I say? I love comments from you! :)


That's it. Not that long, huh? 


May the odds be ever in your favour!

  46. It is every man's desire big resile in my gradation, but I likewise had a immense spate of ego regard and authority further! So, the professional aliveness tends to a slip noose, import you had a higher luck of suffering from slippages or determination that the plan didn't gibe the configuration of your penis.
