The Great Book Giveaway Bonanza!


     It's here, folks! The Great Book Giveaway Bonanza! If you haven't already heard, Hamlette is hosting a great big giant book giveaway celebration on her blog, The Edge of the Precipice. I've been really looking forward to this, and now here it is! Book giveaways are the bestest, aren't they?

   Do hop over to her blog to see all the details, and enter for some really awesome books!

   Now, I thought it would be really cool to host my own book giveaway this year, but unfortunately that's not going to happen for two reasons; one, being all the books I'm willing to part with are ones I don't think anyone else would want to read; and two, I'm kind of broke right now and I just don't have the fundage for sending all those books. So, alas, I won't be giving away any books. BUT I do have something special for you! Instead of books, I'll be giving away several bookmarks that I've made.

Collection #1
(Left to right) Kittens, Jack and Rose, Les Mis, Cowboy, Gus McCrae, Gone With the Wind



Collection #2
(Left to right) Edith Crawley, Lord Grantham, Isobel Crawley, Edith and Michael Gregson, Mrs. Hughes.

(You can click on all the pictures to make them bigger)

     They're not spectacular, but they're cute! I thought it would be a unique contribution to the book giveaways going on -- because if you've got so many books, you're going to need a snazzy bookmark to go with them, right?-- and it's something I can do right now. ;-D 

     So! I've made eleven bookmarks. There are two separate collections; the Downton Abbey collection and the Miscellaneous collection. To enter, just comment below and tell me which one you would most like to win from each collection. (Please do enter for both! :-)) Each bookmark has a name, which I've listed with the pictures, so you can specify. Then leave your email address so I can contact you if you win. (Note: if you'd rather not have me publish your email address, just say so in the comment and I won't.) 

    This giveaway is open world-wide! I'll be drawing winners on June 22nd.

  1. Oh, your gorgeous bookmarks! EMMA. *gasps*

    I love the GWTW one for the Misc secton.
    And - oh, how to choose - the first (Edith Crawley) for the Downton Abbey section.
    And I suppose that if I win I GET ANOTHER LETTER OF YOU. *big grin*

    And do you have my e-mail? I THINK for some reason or the other that you just might. But I may be wrong. ;-P

    1. *blushes* Aww, shucks. ;-P

      I KNEW you'd want the GWTW one. How'd I know.

      Hmmm.....seems like I may have it somewhere...I'll have to look to be sure. ;-P

  2. What a great idea! I am perilously fond of bookmarks, and I really like the cowboy bookmark (you'd never guess, right?). I'm not into Downton Abbey, so I'll pass on that set. If I had to pick a second choice from the first set, I'd probably go with GWTW.

  4. What a coincidence! I'm going to mainly be giving away bookmarks too:D

    Oooh, these are beautiful! Can I have the Gus McCrae bookmark if I win, please? It's such a wonderful quote!

    (Plus, GURL YOUR SIDEBAR OF QUOTES. You included the gardening quote from Secondhand Lions!!!! XD And let 'er buck…sniffle…)

    Oh, by the by, I think you know my email address, but in case you don't: livvyforlife@gmail.com

    1. I know! Isn't that funny? ;-)

      Heehee, I made the Gus bookmark with you in mind. I can't think of anyone else I'd rather give it to! :-)

      I'm glad you like my quotes! I thought it would be fun to have just a bunch of random ones on the sidebar, so people could read through them and recognize some, laugh, and think what good taste I have. ;-P Haha.

  5. I think this is a LOVELY giveaway, Emma Jane. xx All of the bookmarks are so beautiful, & handmade is something really special. In the first collection, I'd love to win Gone with the Wind (my second choice would be Titanic!) In the second, Mrs. Hughes. :) Thank you ever so much!

    I'll post my email address separately so that it can be neatly deleted. :)

  9. Emma, those are gorgeous! I would love the Les Mis bookmark, if I could have it.
    I also like the Downton Abbey ones, but I figure I should leave those for the real, true-blue Downton fans because I've never actually seen the show, I just like the pretty pictures :)

  17. Nice idea! I was going to add bookmarks to my giveaway but didn't get them done in time. Next giveaway maybe! I love the Les Mis bookmark from the Miscellaneous collection. I haven't really watched Downton Abbey, so I'll leave those for the fans. Thanks!

  24. ooh!! i would love the Les Mis bookmark from the Miscellaneous collection

  25. Oh wow, these are so adorable! I really don't know which one I like best. You are quite crafty, y'know. :-) I'm quite miserable when it comes to art. :-P As I am not "into" Downtown (no offense, but I'd rather have someone else win it who would appreciate it more - though they are pretty!) so I'll just 'enter' for the first lot. I can't decide between Kittens or the Les Mis one they are both too wonderful. *sigh* If I HAD to choose, it'd be the kittens though. That blue is my favourite colour. :-D I'll write up a second comment with my email. :-)

  27. So I am WAY behind on all my internet affairs, but I just HAD to enter your giveaway, hence here I am!

    Lovely work on every single one of them, however, since I have not seen any of the movies, I'm only entering for the Cowboy one because...well..yes. ;)

    Do you still have my email? If not, here it is: cherryames96{at}gmail{dot}com

I'd love it if you'd drop me a line or two! I always enjoy receiving comments from readers and friends. I ask that you please keep your comments clean and God-honoring, and please don't write anything you wouldn't want your grandmother to read. Also, if you are commenting under anonymous, please do leave your name (or some sort of moniker so that you aren't totally nameless). Thank you so much and have a lovely day!
