[** If you are new to Friday Pick Giveaway - Welcome! Scroll down a
bit (below book group #19) for instructions on how to enter.]
Happy Friday folks. How is everyone this week? Do we have any graduates out there? I'm so glad you guys liked the sign from last week. I'm thinking about offering one for giveaway!
Thank you to all who entered May 18 Pick. There were no Automatic winners
this week :-( (those who requested the book four times and I did not note
other people asking for that book during those weeks).
There were two picks blocked by multiple requests but one was won this week from a several week "face off." (Sorry Carol - I think I have a second copy to read and I will make myself a note that you are interested in it when I finish.)
to Random.org picked Winners from May 18 Pick:
mamabunny13 chose A Week in Winter
chose The Blue Zone
now you can go from text books to fun books!
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 or
sexy and I have a new supply of sweet bookmarks.

May, 2011 New Group of Pick books
3/25/11 I did get to set up a new group of books:
2/19/11 Book Group #18- Pairs!
Not all of these are two from a series but several are. Each pick gets two books.
I have finally updated the intro and Entry paragraphs here:
Patricia Cornwell Pair:
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
I started Friday Pick in November 27, 2009 and in two years I posted 26 groups of 16 books to find new homes! (March 2012)
I have 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! I am happy to say that so far about 358 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.
Note rules here regarding international entries.
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 $5.00 and
$6.00 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)
Leave a comment and tell me WHICH BOOK you would like to get from the Friday Pick lists.
CUT OFF TIME IS THURSDAY NIGHTS AT 10:00 PM CENTRAL
so I do not have to stay up past midnight to do the winner post!
I will randomly pick two winners to announce Friday mornings with the next Pick post.
wins are those who requested the book four times and I did not note
other people asking for that book during those weeks.
WINNERS PLEASE CHECK THE WIN POST ON FRIDAYS AND
fill in the Winner's Acceptance Form
or email me at
email@example.com. [I will confirm receipt of the addresses- well I
realize I haven't always done this. But if you filled out the form and
don't get the book within two weeks nudge me with an email please!] If I
have the winners e-mail I will send a reminder in a week or so....
Thanks for helping these books find new homes!!
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!
12/3/10 Book Set:
Here is set #13 of Used books!
is a group of books I have had for several years but not gotten to
read. Since it doesn't look like I will get to read them for another
year (or more!) I am passing them on. Although as I type them part of me
still says "But you may want to read that some day!" Yes, yes; along
with the other 700 books I am housing! Must Let goooooo.....
