Martha's Bookshelf***Friday Pick Giveaway February 5, 2016

Happy Friday.
Ack! Another week gone! I have so much to do. I just keep on plugging away at all the tasks.
Weather got warmer but now is heading to cold again. We're saving some logs for the cold spell expected later next week. Meanwhile we may be visiting Biloxi early in the week if I can juggle through some work. I always find it interesting when you mention your different weather in your comments. Even though we are 'world's apart' we can share together through our blog time and reading. :-)

[Thanks for continued prayers for my nephew. His 8 hour surgery is scheduled again for 2/10.] 
BTW- Thanks for being patient if you've been waiting for books. We have been training a new clerk and finally got her started on book mailings this week. There is a back log all the way back to right before Christmas so I appreciate your patience.

TO ENTER FRIDAY PICK
US Entrants: Leave a comment and tell me WHICH BOOK you would like to get from the Friday Pick lists.
INTERNATIONAL: Leave a comment indicating "Gift Card" (see further comments near the end of the post.)


CUT OFF TIME IS THURSDAY NIGHTS AT 9:00 PM CENTRAL so I do not have to stay up too late to do the winner post! I will randomly pick two winners to announce Friday mornings with the next Pick post.

Thank you to all who entered the January 30 Pick. There was one automatic win again this week.  Automatic wins are those who requested the book four times without other people asking for that book during those weeks. There was one blocked title.
AUTO: 
Rita gets Whisper on the Wind
CONGRATULATIONS
to Random.org picked Winners from January 29 Pick:
Elizabeth gets The Leigh Greenwood Pair (persistence prevails!)
CarolNW gets Rally Fever

All winners please fill in the Winner's Acceptance Form or email me to confirm your win, send your snail mail address information and let me know if you would like bookmarks - sensual, sexy or sweet bookmarks. {The form is new because Google changed their forms and the old one wasn't letting me print out the responses.}
It's the month of love and that means loving books... and libraries.

If you saw the pictures posted of my bookshelves and boxes you know I do have lots of books! And that doesn't include the other eight or so boxes at my office!! And more books as I find deals too good to pass up! I am sharing my book bounty by these Friday Pick Giveaways.

I started Friday Pick on November 27, 2009 and in almost six years I have posted 62 groups of 16 (992) books to find new homes! (as of November 6, 2015).

I am happy to say that so far about 924+ books have found new homes! YAY. I have to update my print out to check the exact number sent out - a few were never claimed. I periodically update the lists - deleting those won. You can still go to the Friday Pick list link to see older posts and the older lists book pictures if you want!

Note rules here regarding international entries.
Because postage to overseas can be prohibitive I am willing to give a $5.00 book certificate to international winners - Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Borders, ARe, TWRP, ClassAct Books, eTreasures, Desert Breeze, etc....you tell me where and I'll set it up. So for my overseas visitors your comment may indicate a smaller book and I'll check postage or note your choice of gift card.

I learned that The Book Depository does not ship to everywhere. The postage for some of the books to far away places runs between $7.00 and $10.00 and up. Since I would award $5.00 for The Book Depository to an international winner, as an alternative you may choose a smaller book and we will hope the postage will not exceed $6.00. If the postage is more, or if you want to pick a larger book and you are willing to pay any extra postage beyond the $6.00 I will work with you on that. This may not make a difference to many but if it helps one or two of you to give one of my books a home that will make me happy too. :o)

Repeating this helpful blog tip: You can right click on a link and you will be given the choice to open the link in a new window or tab so you do not navigate away from the screen you are on!! I use this all the time!

  7. Last week I mentioned a snowstorm, and it wasn't much of one. The winds shifted and blew most of it up north. I wish your nephew a speedy recovery after his surgery next week. I look forward to your update on him.

    This week I'm going for Victoria Alexander's pair: The Pursuit of Marriage and When We Meet Again
