Book Give Away on Wednesdays

So here is the deal.  I like to read and I have free books coming in from a few sources now.  However, I rarely read a book twice and I am a little limited on book space.  So I have decided to start giving away some fairly new books on my blog.  I get a few questions here and there about it so I thought I would put up a short post describing how I hope to do this.

How does it work?

Intermittently on Wednesdays I will put up a post with a book that I am want to give away.  Sometimes I will just ask you to leave a comment (Like: why do you want this book?) and place everyone’s name in a hat and draw out a name.  Sometimes I will ask for creative comments and pass on a book to the one with the most creative comment.  And I’m leaving the door open to change the process in the future.

How often will you give away a book?

Hopefully at least every other week and maybe every week.  It depends on how high my give away stack is at the time.  Check back in each Wednesday morning to see.  I generally write my posts well in advance before they are published and will have Book Give Away posts scheduled for early Wednesday morning.

Who can enter?

Anyone. That is anyone with a shipping address in the continental United States.  I don’t mind paying a small amount of money to ship a book.  If you win and I don’t have your address, I will contact you via the e-mail you supplied when you left your comment and you can provide me with an address then.  Otherwise I don’t need to know your address.

How do I know Who won?

I will post in the comments section on the following Monday announcing who won.  If you won I will also contact you via e-mail and make arrangements to get you the book.

Here is what I ask of you if you want to enter:

  1. That you be polite when you comment.
  2. That you read the book (or pass it on to someone who will) if you win.

Book Give Away!

I have an extra copy of Ted Dekker and Carl Medearis’  new book, Tea With Hezbollah.  Quite frankly it is one of the most eye opening an amazing books I have ever read.  (I’ll post my review next week on the 25th when it comes out).

In the mean time if you would like a chance to win my extra copy of the book, just leave a creative and convincing comment about why you want the book. I’ll pick the most creative and convincing comment and announce the winner on January 25th.   If you win I will need to be able to contact you via e-mail (so make sure you fill that part out when leaving a comment).

Since my review is not out yet.  Here is a tidbit about the book…

Tea with Hezbollah combines nail-biting narrative with the texture of rich historical background, as readers join novelist Ted Dekker and his co-author and Middle East expert, Carl Medearis, on a hair-raising journey. They are with them in every rocky cab ride, late-night border crossing, and back-room conversation as they sit down one-on-one with some of the most notorious leaders of the Arab world. These candid discussions with leaders of Hezbollah and Hamas, with muftis, sheikhs, and ayatollahs, with Osama bin Laden’s brothers, reveal these men to be real people with emotions, fears, and hopes of their own. Along the way, Dekker and Medearis discover surprising answers and even more surprising questions that they could not have anticipated—questions that lead straight to the heart of Middle Eastern conflict.
