Complete Thread
I was the lucky winner of the last round of this sweepstakes, thank you, you have all been generous and creative. So now it's my turn to host Round 7.

Most of what follows has been copied from the original thread:

If you would like to enter:
1. First you post here by December, 20th to enter.

2. Then you PM me with your mailing details and please put "Pirate themed 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 will draw names on December, 20th and 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 DO NOT have to send a book to the winner/decoy; just so we can keep postage affordable please make sure that you send something about pirates however loosely based it is. Gift ideas include a book, bookmark, magnet, keychain, mug coasters, cuddly toy, sweets, stationary, letter writing things. AS LONG AS ITS PIRATE THEMED!

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!

6. As the packages start to arrive, the winner must journal the books & gifts 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.

7. The winner will host the next competition within 1-2 months. If you know you will be unable to host the next round, please do not enter. Let's keep this sweepstake going!

Participants:
bluezwuzl (Germany) (Received) WINNER
Abi-Gibby (UK) (Received) DECOY

Woh-ho!
Nobody out there, who dares to cross the waves on a cursed ship?
Count me in, then. I should be able to... acquire a suitable book by closing time!

I just saw your PM, how funny I decided to join almost at the same time you wrote to ask if I wanted to! What a coincidence! :)

By the way, I'm also looking for participants for the Maritime sweepstakes, just saying, in case.... ;)

HEY-HO!
Its hard to believe, but I'm the decoy (or the winner) of this fun sweeps!
Many, many thanks to Harobed82 for "Tales of Terror from the Black Ship" by Chris Priestley, http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/14038760 which was waiting for me when I came back home. :-D
I'm very much looking forward to this "fantastic page-turner, with a really scary ending"!
And thanks also for the lovely magnetic bookmark and the cute card with your kind wishes! :-) - What a wonderful start into a new year!
*<;-)

 

 

Phantastic parcels keep arriving, but unfortunately my hardware broke down completely, so my only access to the internet currently is free wlan (which is hard to come by hereabouts. On sunday, I hope to get a connection stable enough to post sll your books here. Many, many thanks to you for all your gifts!

 

...for The Usborne Official Pirates Handbook: http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/12866692 accompanied by a parrot-keyring, glittering piratey stickers, Oregon postcards, bc-bookplates and a blue-frog-bookmark :-)
And thanks for your kind note (I love the colorful bycicle-postcard - as there is no sea herabouts, the next best thing to a ship is my bicycle, so call me the bicycle-pirate!)
When I'm "net-mobile" again, I'll try to post a foto of all the goodies in the book-journal)

 

Glad the package arrived the link you haves for a different book by the way. I believe it was this one I sent you??
http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/14842801/

 

I sent it on December, 28th, and it should be there by now... all its travelling companions have arrived safely.
And what about our decoy?

 

...when my fone started playing tricks on me and then going down all togther, I wrote down all the details of the parcels I received to post them at work. I must have got a little over-excited having won and ended up confusing eveything... I got back online today and tomorrow is the last of my "festive-season marathon" with ten free days ahead. I' ll then try to get it all right again. And I'll finally bring my parcel for the decoy to the post office... I'm so very sorry having made a mess of it all!
@ Bookworm-lady:
Indeed your parcel arrived by the end of last week - and I thought I had at least made the journal entry, but it must have been swallowed by this piratey phone of mine (- along with several other bc-entries) I'm really, really sorry!

 

From Abi-Gibby came a real treasure of piraty goodies along with "The Usborne Official Pirate's Handbook" http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/14842801
(The cover is different, but the book seems to be the right one. In the entry above I had the wrong BCID, sorry!) You can see a picture there.

 

Same book :) the cover pic was the one that came up when it was registered

 

... was Harobed82's. It brought "Tales of Terror from the Black Ship" by Chris Priestley: http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/14038760
and a lovely magnetic bookmark and a nice card with best wishes for the new year. Many thanks for this wonderful start into 2018!

 

... arrived the book "Pirate Diary - The Journal of Jake Carpenter" by Richard Platt, with cute illustratons by Chris Riddell:
http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/14169337 - as it seems, a veteran to this sweeps (which should be a very interesting read to a pirating novice!) and with the book came set of very piratey black balloons, which will be a suitable deterrence for common robbers who coul have set their eyes on my pirate-bicycle!!!
Many thsnks, too, for the funny christmas-card and your kind wishes for the new year!

So...
... it will be my honour to call up another pirate sweeps, I understand, in February?
I'm sure looking forward to that :-). And I hope, there will be another winner then, as lucky as I am now, with all the information I got for becoming proper pirate and with all your kind gifts!

 

Come on, you pirate...!

 

May still be travelling to the decoy

 

... has been delayed by the storm. I hope it will travel fast now!

 

For sending me a lovely pirate themed parcel it contained
The Pirates! In an adventure with money dick by Gideon Defoe
Chocolate ( gold coins and skull and cross bones)
Pumpkin seeds covered in chocolate
Pirate rubber
Tea

 

I'm glad it finally arrived - before the next pirates will start travelling...
(The chocolate-covered bits should be pumkin seed, as far as I remember.)

 

Sorry my bad, thank you any way
