For the Love of Books (A giveaway!)

On Monday, I said to check back today for an exciting "something."

If you clicked the link, you likely had an idea of what was to come ... and also likely realized that in my world, "soon" doesn't always mean soon.

Regardless, the time has come ... for a giveaway!


In honor of (nearly) completing the organization and decor of our library, and the most famous of February holidays after Presidents' Day, I am giving away two—yes, two!—prizes.

The first prize of the For the Love of Books giveway is a custom-designed crest bookplate for you to use in your own library and a $25 Amazon giftcard!

(In case you missed it, this is the bookplate I designed for The Murtis:


I'll work together with the winner to create something that fits their hobbies and interests.)

But wait ... I said two prizes!

The other prize in the For the Love of Books giveaway is another Amazon gift card, this one for $20, for the winner to supplement (or start?) their very own library.

The rules are as follows.

You get one entry for leaving a comment on this post.

You can get up to three additional entries for:
  • Tweeting about the giveaway using the hashtag #fortheloveofbooks.
  • "Liking" Chocolate & Cream Cake on Facebook.
  • Posting about the giveaway on your blog.

Please leave a separate (can be nested) comment for each entry.

This giveaway will close Wednesday Feb. 29, so get your entries in now!

  1. This is such an ace giveaway! I can't wait to finally get settled in Australia - I'm giving books away at the moment before we emigrate, and it's heartbreaking.

  3. Your bookplate design is so amazing, and such a cool idea! I've rarely ever lent out my books, but I think having a bookplate in all of them is so cute! I really hope I win so we can design one together. But if not, I might just come up with something myself. Hee hee. :)

  6. Shaun's a hater, but I'm not entering the contest. I will leave you a comment, however, seeing as I like your blog. And I already follow it on FB. And I think I've plugged it several times in my (not recently updated) blog. Plus, since we're real life friends, I can just steal a bunch of your bookplates and modify them with a sharpie. No biggie.

    Anyway, I bow out of the contest. I wouldn't want anyone to accuse you of favoritism.

  12. Omg, Mands, when did blogger start with this new commenting system? Awesome!!

    And I'm entering. I wonder if they'll let me use the gift card, if I win. If not, I shall re-donate to the draw so that you can give it to someone else.
