Closed - You've got snail mail (international)

The main object of the game is to surprise some lucky bookcrosser with lots and lots of friendly mail.

So the simple rules like any other sweepstakes:

1) Post here by November 11th if you wish to enter!
2) PM me with your name and address which will be sent to others if you are the winner (No PM = No entry).
3) One winner and one decoy will be drawn by November 12th 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).
4) Please keep the winner a secret, it is more fun that way!
5) The winner of this contest must agree to hold the contest again in a couple of months time.
6) If you are the winner, please post here the goodies that you received.

Some of you may ask WHAT DO WE SEND? Because this is all about MAIL, you can send whatever you like, such as a postcard, letter, chocolate, candy, bookmarks, fridge magnets , notebooks, BC supplies, or even a book. The list could go on so use your imagination and go wild :) This is an easy sweepstakes to be a part of because simply sending a note or letter is perfectly fine - and less expensive than sending a book internationally.

Thanks & please join!
