WINNER CHOSEN - Intl Audiobook Sweepstake June 2012

I was the winner of the March audiobook sweepstake and it is now my duty to host the next draw. The rules are simple: --

1. Enter by posting here, stating whether you prefer cassettes, CD's or either, no guarentees but we will do our best.

2. PM me your address.

3. This is international so please do not enter if you are not willing to ship internationally, surface mail is fine.

4. I will pick a winner and a decoy at the end of the month (30th June). I'll send that person's address to all other participants. I will also draw a second name as a decoy, for the winner to send an Audiobook to.

5. Do not congratulate the winner on this thread until the packages start to arrive and they realise that they have won! Let's keep the secret as long as possible!

6. You may also enter as 'send only' either by posting here or PM'ing me.

7. The winner of this contest must agree to hold the contest again in a couple of months time.

8. If you are the winner, please post here the books you received.

Good Luck!

I received the fabulous CD's yesterday. I received The Scandal of the Season by Sophie Gee and Ghost Radio by Leopoldo Gout. I haven't read anything from either of these authors, so am very happy.
Will have to wait until later to see if I am the decoy or the winner! Happy either way!

Yey, I'm glad the audio books mad it to you safely! They arrived swifty too. Four days is fast!! Enjoy!!
Profile Image
... I've been held up :(

I will try to get it out some time this week - promise I will do my best!
Profile Image
a phone line for a while due to a technical fault and BT only sent out an engineer yesterday after us harrassing them for the last nine days.

So appologies I am running behind but will get to it ASAP.
Profile Image
I ordered via paperbackswap.com so, unless the sender is also a BC'er, it will not have a BCID.
Profile Image
Thank you, JudySlump612, for sending me an audiobook.... So, does mean I'm the winner of the audiobook sweepstakes?!!! Because I thought the person I sent my audiobooks was the winner.

Profile Image
you've sent me!! Today in the mail, I received The Almost Moon by Alice Sebold and Coronado by Dennis LeHane. I look forward to listening to both books!
Profile Image
Will do soon. Am glad FeistyPom2love is the winner and not me, I so love being the decoy!
Profile Image
I am really sorry about this. I haven't posted your book yet. The reason is that I ordered it from Amazon and it hasn't been delivered yet. The one I was going to send you, i.e. the one I have here at home, turned out not to be suitable after all, so it's sorry all round :S

As soon as it is delivered I will post it on. Promise!

Wow, I feel spoiled by your parcel, I received three audiobooks. Several cute Bookcrossing labels, 3 postcards, Bookcrossing decal, Kiva Bookmark, and an awesome Ballycomber pin.

I received a lovely postcard and the audiobook Toast by Nigel Slater. You'd asked me if there were meetups and OBCZS. There use to be regular meetups at a local OBCZ in the neighboring town of Ventura about 20-30 minutes drive from my home, depending on traffic, but haven't seen meetups there in a few years. In fact, I've heard a rumor that the OBCZ closed recently, but haven't confirmed the information for myself. Otherwise there are other obczs and meetups around the state, but none close enough for me to visit/attend regularly.

You're welcome!
I'm pretty sure footymadgill went to a zone in Ventura a few months ago...?

So, Latte 101 is still open? That's good news! I love that place and use to go there frequently! It's on Telephone Road... It's easy to get Telegraph and Telephone Roads mixed up. (When my hubby and I 1st moved up to Santa Barbara County we use to get Cabrillo, Castillo & Carrillo Streets mixed up!)

It would have been fun to meet you, footymadgill, while you were in the area!

called the The Teahouse Fire by Elilss Avery, but I don't see an obvious BCID LABEL on it!!! This book was a book from wishlist and I am assuming the generous sender is one of the wonderful Bookcrossers that took part in this Sweeps? Am I correct? Thank you for fulfilling one of my books from my wishlist!!

The Book of Tomorrow by Cecelia Ahern
On Green Dolphin Street by Sebastian Faulks
