Great Monday Give: Surprise Grab Box

Ho ho ho everyone! Christmas is coming like a freight train, so to celebrate, I'm offering up a special holiday edition of the Great Monday Give that is actually gonna end FRIDAY so that the books can arrive (hopefully) in time for Christmas. And what is the prize? I am happy to say it's gonna be a grab box of goodies from the VKBMKLs archives. Everything I send will either be a new copy of an old book or an old copy of an old book, but I promise each book will be even more awesome than the next, handpicked from my personal collection!

And what will be in this box of magical book fun? Well, that part is a surprise, but know that it will have at least 10 books in it and they will all be super cool. To be entered to win, all you have to do is comment on this post before midnight, Friday the 18th. Also, every person who follows my Twitter or joins me on Facebook between now and then will be entered into a special one book mystery drawing. Both winners will be announced on Saturday! If the winners send me their info over the weekend, I'll try and get the books out as fast as humanly possible so you can add them under the tree if you want. (No guarantees though!) So be sure and check back on Saturday to see if you've won.

I also wanna say, sometimes a winner never contacts me about a win. Now, I love giving the GMG to everyday readers, so just know I do not go hunting people down if they've won something and don't contact me. If you don't e-mail me... you won't get the book, yes?

As for last week's give of The Snowy Day... Dee is the big winner! Let's all congratulate her. Please send me your mailing info to: webe(at)soon(dot)com.

I will be taking a week and a half off starting on Christmas Eve. You may hear from me, you may not, but know that I'll be back for sure with a new Great Monday Give on January 5. In the meantime, be expecting a ton of great picks between now and next Thursday. Bye!

Thanks Scribbler and thanks everyone for the congrats. This has turned out to be a great day. First I actually found a book that was reviewed here. Found in a thrift shop, "The Man Who Never Washed Dishes" for 69cents. Then I find out I'm a winner! This is the start of a wonderful collection. I'm excited. Happy Holidays to all! And whoever wins the Grab box please share the names of the books from Her private collection. Thanks again, Dee
