giveaway: sharing my birthday trough the love of reading

Written by Darlyn At Tuesday, May 18, 2010

Hi everyone! I am so excited today because I have this cool idea to celebrate my birthday on May 22nd. My friends and my fiancee knows me very well that I am a very avid reader and a bookworm type. Sounds geeky and corny but I love being a bookworm. I want to share the love of reading with other bookworms too (if you think you ARE) by hosting a rather small contest but fun to win a book. Instead of me receiving presents (yes, my DEAR hubby-to-be will give me books of my choice too *LOL* for my birthday), I will give a book to one lucky winner of this giveaway! One winner will be picked randomly and will win a book of your choice worth RM25! Yeay! (I know it's not much, but it's FUN!)

Since I always buy books online e.g., MPH, POPULAR, I also love to buy books from BooksforCharity. They offer a lot of new books with very affordable price (which I love they doing that) and every books you buy from them also means you're doing a donation/charity. And yes, I know, that is tremendously, incredibly awesome =).

So, heads up to the giveaway, I would suggest to you to chose one of **these few books** to win that I like if you can't browse Books4Charity FB / don't have FB account.

1) Dear John by Nicholas Sparks
2) A Vintage Affair by Isabel Wolf
3) Where The Heart Leads by Stephanie Laurens
4) The Cupid Effect by Dorothy Koomson
5) Irresistible Forces by Danielle Steele
6) One For My Baby by Tony Parsons
7) Windmills of the God by Sidney Sheldon
8) Plain Truth by Jodi Picoult
9) The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown
10) Reavers by Emily Diamond

**upon availability

And here's what you will have to do;

Leave a comment including;

1) Your name (aliases is OK) and your VALID email so that I can email you back if you win. (One entry per person)

2) Promote or post this giveaway through your Facebook, Twitter or Blog (either one is ok).

3) Choose a book you want to win from the list above or choose yourself at BooksforCharity Nizida Facebook (only price within RM25).

4) Answer this question (just for fun but a must!)

If it is your birthday, what present you want to have most? And why do you want it so much? (Answer in Malay is OK)

What are you waiting for? Participate now =) And the giveaway ends May 22nd Midnight (LOCAL TIME). I don't know but *cough* if the giveaway gets huge participants, maybe *cough* I'll choose Two Winners.. *wink*

This contest is open to MALAYSIANS only (I'm sorry INTERNATIONALS!).*cough*. There will be next time for you!
