the great chookooloonks office-redo giveaway!
Even though I admit that I hate getting rid of books, clearing out my office made me realize that I have several duplicates of books, or books that PR folks have sent me that I've never read, or items that I'd purchased more than one of with the intent of giving them away, and never did. So since the holidays are almost upon us, I thought I'd help one commenter get a jumpstart on his/her holiday shopping: I'm giving away everything in the photo, above! And by everything, I mean:
• One Hilary Druxman sterling silver Girl Power Bracelet (you can see what it looks like in Kal's post here -- I bought two of them a couple of years ago, and never take one of them off -- this second one has never been worn)
• A ONE Campaign white beaded bracelet, made in South Africa (again, never worn)
• A brand new copy of Daring Greatly, by Brené Brown
• A brand new copy of Ritual & Rhythm: A Guide to Creative Self-Care, by Caren McLellan Gazley
• A brand new copy of Beauty Everywhere: A Portable Gallery by Jolie Guillebeau
• A signed copy of Global Soccer Mom by Shayne Moore
• A brand new copy of Minimalist Parenting, by Asha Dornfest & Christine Koh
• A brand new copy of Unmarketing by Scott Stratten
• All the Ways I Love You recordable storybook from Hallmark (a PR company sent this to me a couple of years ago, and I never opened it)
• A signed copy of The Beauty of Different, inscribed to whomever you'd like.
That's a lot of coolness in one care package. If you'd like a chance to win it all, simply leave a comment with the name of your favourite book (or a book you've recently enjoyed, or are enjoying now), and I'll pick one person at random to win the whole shebang. One comment per person, please. I'll announce the winner on Monday, November 18, 2013.
update, Monday, November 18:
According to Random.org, the winner of the stack of books is Susanne, who said, "My bookshelf is in the living room and yes, it is sorted by colour..Favourite books are Haruki Murakami's IQ84 and any Henning Mankell, especially his stories about Africa." Congratulations, Susanne! Please check you email for a note from me requesting your snail-mail address.
And thanks so much to all of you for sharing your favourite books with me -- I've already made a list of the ones I'm going to buy (but in ebook form, this time!)
