This thread was unfortunately shut down. It came to my attention that since this was considered a lottery, it was not allowed on PBS. Thanks for the interest though guys!

Interesting indeed.  How do people enter?  If I did a raffle I wouldn't want to put my books on hold.  And how could people choose from your bookshelf if your bookshelf was on hold?  Maybe I'm missing something?

i think we either list the books we are raffling or once a person picks a single book we put that one on hold..

I took the rule about holding out. I tried it, and it wouldn't allow people to see my bookshelf anymore! We'll just hope that a book that someone picks doesn't get requested in the meantime! 

To enter, simply post here that you'd like to enter, which book you'd want to receive if you won, and for fun, tell us your favorite genre and why. And that's all you  have to do! Then wait until the deadline is up and check back to see if you're a winner!

Do you think this was the best forum to put this in? I thought about doing separate ones in separate genre forums, but then this seemed like the most sensible place to put it.

Yeah, we'll see how many people respond within 2 days. Remember I'm basing this off another idea, and there sometime people will keep it open a week or two, everyone joins the first day or two, and the thread is dead for the rest of the time. But here is a different group of people and who knows what they'll do!

Hi Cassie!

I finally found an online contest where it looks like the odds are in my favor! This is a good idea, but I went ahead and ordered the book I wanted, Ask the Angels so that it wouldn't get taken by the competition. PM me if you get this idea going and I'm in.... I'll try to check these posts, but sometimes I get lost.

Thanks, Lori

Great Charity! Let me know when you make your choice, and don't forget to tell us your favorite genre and why!

 

Hey Lori. Thanks for the order! I'll get it out this week. But go ahead and participate in the raffle and choose a book you'd like to win as well! You've got nothing to lose!

Since this seems to be going a little slow, I'm going to put on a couple extra days.

I'm going to move this thread to the "games" forum where I think it may get some more notice. I'll pm any that posted here!
