Global sweepstakes

This is a great sweeps - I received lots of fabulous books! Time for the next round. I'll close it around the end of March or sooner if enough people sign up.

Here are the rules (copied from the last thread):

You need to have a book with a place name in the title such as "Death on the Nile", "Passage to India", "Out of Africa", "Salem's Lot", "Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas", and so on, either in your available pile or your soon to be read mountain in order to enter. (Needs to be specific names of towns/cities, rivers, countries or continents. Planets are also allowed as are scifi Star trek/wars place names!!!)


1) Post here by March 31st 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). Send-only participants are welcome and, of course, are excused from sending a PM. ;-)
3) Everyone will get a PM with the address and name of the winner/decoy.
4) Decoy will also be drawn so that the winner will not know they have won till the books start to arrive.
5. You're welcome to include a little extra something like a bookmark or something themed to your book, but it is NOT required!
6) Please keep the winner a secret, it is more fun that way!
7) The winner of this contest can choose to hold the contest again in a couple of months time.
8)If you are the winner, please post here the goodies that you received.

This sweep is INTERNATIONAL, so you must be willing to send worldwide.

Hi there!

When is the draw? Was it done already?
Just wondering as the closing date was end of March and I haven't received a PM.
Profile Image
I have sent a PM to the organiser
Profile Image
Everybody should have got a PM now; drop me a line if you haven't. Sorry for the delay, this week was a bit hectic - my offer on a flat was accepted, so all my spare time has been spent researching mortgages and panicking!

Great news congrats

Thanks! I'm already worrying that my possible-new-letterbox may not be big enough for books ;) Still at early stages yet though, so it may or may not actually happen.
Profile Image
Congratulations to the winner!
Profile Image
...as of today.

Congrats to the winner!

Congrats to the winner... and enjoy! :)

I have received 2 or 3 books for this Sweepstake - when I get my head around it, I will tell you which ones - I have journaled them :-)

I'm a bit worried about mine. It seems to be taking a long time to get there. I sent it at the same time as another sweepstakes prize and neither has arrived yet. I'll give it a little while longer and if it doesn't show up I'll organise a replacement.

Brezova mentioned though that she will be away until the end of May... so your book might have arrived, the winner just hasn't been there to pick it up yet :)
Profile Image
I have finished the book long ago but only just got around to sending it today.
Profile Image
Hopefully won't take long :)
Profile Image
I believe I might be the lucky one - sorry for not journaling these books faster, but a lot of things are happening around me and on Wednesday I leave Brussels for five weeks, so I have to do it now.
The next Global Sweepstake will probably only come when I get back end of May beginning of June - hopefully you can wait that long????

Actually, my book is still travelling. This one is sent for another sweeps. In her hurry to journal everything so far, brezova mixed it up. The book for this sweep will hopefully be waiting for her when she comes back.

I really enjoyed it. Very relaxing and fabulous weather, better than here in Belgium, so I've been teasing husband and kids with my brown skin - just from walking around, not one for sitting or lying in the sun.

These books were waiting for me when I got here:
