Closed - INTL RABCK SWEEPSTAKES - DECEMBER-JANUARY

Hello everybody! :)

I won the August - September 2017 International RABCK Sweepstakes , and so this is my turn to host... a bit late as I have been waiting for everything to arrive. I am excited with what I have received so far, and I know some of you are eager for the next round. So, no more delay.

Here are the usual rules (shamelessly copied from the last round):

1. Post here to enter.

2. PM me with your mailing details and please put 'International RABCK Sweepstake" in the subject line of your PM. You can also choose to enter as 'send only', then you don't have to send a PM.

3. I'll draw two names, one winner and one decoy, the first week of January. I'll PM everyone with the name and address of the winner (the winner will be PM'ed with the name and address of the decoy).

4. You are expected to send a book to the winner/decoy. If you don't think you will be able to send a book, please do not enter. It is unfair to the other participants if you only send a postcard (or nothing at all) when you expect everyone else to send a book if you are the winner. Please remember that this is an international sweepstakes, so you will be expected to send internationally.

5. Please don't let the winner know they have won, either by posting here or by PM, it's much more fun if the packages start arriving out of the blue! And please don't post here the name of the winner!

6. As the packages start to arrive, the winner must journal the books in a timely fashion and also post here what they have received, as it's fun for everyone who's entered to see what the winner has got. If books are journaled but no posts here, please let me know, and we will choose a new winner.

7. The winner will host the next competition of the draw (February - March). If you know you will be unable to host the next round, please do not enter. Let's keep this sweepstakes going! :)

Thanks everyone for playing. We have 9 players and 1 send only, so the lucky winner will be getting 9 books and sending a book to the decoy.

PMs been sent. Please let me know if you do not get one. And now I will have a look at my shelves...

PM received, thanks!

I'm leaving for a week's vacation early tomorrow morning and don't have time to run to the post office today, so my book will be a bit delayed. Apologies in advance!

Thanks for sending a WishList book I am really looking forward to reading:

"The Monogram Murders", by Sophie Hannah
http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/14070197/

I am really curious about this re-rendition of Agatha Christie's Poirot... let's see what I make of it.
Thanks for the beautiful Vespa postcard and Vivien Leigh bookmark, and the assorted bags of tea, which I find very intriguing and will start sampling today... nothing better than a nice cup of tea after lunch.
Thank you, you have been brilliant! :)

Thanks for sending a book that I think I will enjoy, based on my previous experiences with this writer:

"Ten Big Ones", by Janet Evanovich
http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/14869982/

"Punchy, saucy and stacks of fun. I'm hooked!" reads in the back cover. It sounds just like what I need at the time.

Thanks for the beautiful postcard too... Good choice! :)
