Maritime sweepstakes - international (5th round) - Closed

Hoping to revive this from its shipwrecked position at the bottom of the sea... Not sure what iteration it is, so guessing at #5 (thanks Abi!).

I hope the theme is self-explanatory. It's all about sea - anything that describes objects or activities relating to the sea, such as sailing, ports (a man made facility where boats can load and offload- you will also find land transport facilities here like trains and lorries), harbours ( where ships can get shelter and protection from the rough weather), boats/ ships, light ¡houses, jet skies, luxury cruises, maritime disasters, seagulls, fishing, oceanology, etc.

Post here by September 30th, if you wish to enter!

PM me with your name and address which will be sent to others if you are the winner (No PM = No entry). Please put Maritime Sweepstakes, Address of..... in the subject line.

One winner and one decoy will be drawn on or around October 1st, and everyone will get a PM with the address and name of the winner (except that the winner will get the name of the decoy).

Please keep the winner a secret, it is more fun that way!

The winner of this contest must agree to hold the contest again in a couple of months time. If you know you can't host the next round, please enter as a send only. Let's keep this sweepstakes going!

If you are the winner, please post here and tell us about the books and the goodies that you received.

This sweepstakes is INTERNATIONAL so if you are UNABLE to send something please do not join.

Books have to have a maritime theme to them PLUS you can also send a small gift also relating to what this sweeps is about.

Come on, join the fun! I look forward to lots of entries; you will receive the most varied and surprising books and goodies.
