Buy a Friend a Book Week aka Spread the Love!

I've decided to join in the fun this week and buy you a book, or better 3 books:-)
I love buying books for people especially when those books are my favourites, and what better occasion than BAFAB week? All you have to do is leave a comment and tell me which of the 3 books you'd like, or if you'd like all 3 of them say so. But since I'd like to make 3 people happy you can only win one each! I will throw your names in a bowl, I don't have a hat sorry, and draw the 3 lucky ones.
So, if you win one of the books, and you're lucky enough to be drawn another time, I'll draw another name to give more people a chance to win
To give people time the deadline to enter is at the end of the week, April 6th.

Oh and obviously, if you spread the word I'll enter you twice!

One last thing: since these are books I don't want to part with I will buy you a new copy, that's the whole point, right?

The books I'm giving away to spread the love are:

Harriet the Spy: An all time favourite, recently re-discovered. Read why I love it here.

The tygrine Cat: This book is lovely and so is its author. I think more people need to know her! Read why here.

The Last Elf: One of last year's favourite. I've spread the love for this book a lot: my mum, my best friend, her mum, her granny...It's worth it! Read why here.

ps: I have some extra WORLD BOOK DAY BOOKS to add as well. If you have kids or just would like to have them say so and I'll add them. To see this year's books look here. You can choose as many as you like.


This week the giveaways are spreading like mushrooms...It's hard to keep up. So here's a list of those that I know of:
Bell Literary Reflections
Stainless Steel Droppings
In spring it is the dawn
Musings of a bookish kitty
park avenue princess
a striped armchair
a garden carried in the pocket
carp(e) libris
ready when you are, C.B.
the deblog
the story siren

Good Luck!

Hi Valentina! I haven't read any of those, so please throw my name in the bowl for the 3. I posted about your giveaway today. I love the fact that so many people are joining this edition of BAFAB Week!

Becky said...

I've posted about your giveaway. I'd be interested in all three as well.

Eva said...

These all sound great-count me in! I have a two-year-old niece, so if I could be entered in the contest for Paddington and Princess Poppy as well that'd be great. And if you happen to have one of those Gaimans lying around, I'd like to be entered in that contest for myself. :D
I've linked to your giveaway on my blog.

Count me in. I was just going to say The Last Elf, but then I thought my daughter hasn't read Harriet, so by this point, I may as well say I'd take any of the books.

All the World Day books look awesome!

thanks for being so generous.
