Great Monday Give: 25 Mystery Books

In anticipation of spring cleaning here in Texas, I am going to be hosting the biggest, baddest Great Monday Give EVER.

I actually need to make room on my son's shelves, so I am offering up a mystery box of 25 books. I'm not yet sure what they'll be, but rest assured, the package will be awesome. The best part is, you'll have three ways to win.

One... Comment on this post as usual.

Two... Follow me on Twitter and then post about the Giveaway using the hash tag #vintagekidsbooksrule.

Three... friend me on Facebook and post a comment saying you want to win on my wall.

I'll pick one name from each of these avenues (could be the same person) and then randomly pick a winner from the three. By entering the give all three ways, it ups your chances of winning.

The give will run for two weeks, so you have plenty of time. Enter between now and Sunday, February 5 at 11:59 PM. A winner will be announced the following day.

I promise the box will be filled with all sorts of vintage goodies! Good luck, gang.

(If you are outside of the US, you can still enter to win, but if you win, I would ask that you cover shipping. Fair?)

(And the winner of last week's give is Patricia! E-mail me at webe@soon.com with your info.)

Read along on Instagram, Facebook, tumblr, Twitter and Etsy.

karichuckroryskylar.... I saw you note before and checked my e-mail's spam, and still can't find it. I left you a note on the other post asking to try my other e-mail address burginstreetman(at)gmail(dot)com. I don't know why your e-mails have been lost, but I still have the book and would love to send it off to you!

I left a comment on your blog, too. Hopefully we can connect!

Sorry again.

What a fun giveaway. just by chance I discovered a long-lost title from my childhood (we had to throw our copy away when I was a kid because it was used to help hold down the list on our hamster cage and our hamster eventually chewed through the entire book). Such a pleasure to see it again! I can't imagine the fun of a 25-book giveaway!

Liana said...

Your website has been such a great resource for me and my twin daughters! I'm in!

megan said...

MissShapes said...

I'm hoping and wishing for a win! I've just added your blog although I've popped in a few times. I'm obsessed with all children's literature but specifically stuff from the 60s! I just love the illustrations that came out of that time period. :-)

I LOVE Mrs. Ticklefeather. I have a copy of it myself. I found it a few years ago remembering it from when I was a child. Ours was all scribbled and cut-up some. As a librarian, I cannot believe what we did to our books! I teach my students better! What fun it is to look at some of the old and not so old children's books again.

Marie said...
