Let's Make A Deal


When I enter book giveaways on the internet, some of them state that the particular giveaway is open to US / Canada only. However, if I have a friend who can send the book to me, then I can enter no matter where I live.

So, here's the deal. I will enter all the book giveaways I can find and if I win, I will ask the host to send the book to your address. So, you get to read the NEW book and keep it for 2-4 weeks. Then, you will have to send the book to me IF I'm interested in reading it as well. Please note that I live in Malaysia, so the postage may cost a little bit more. You will be responsible for the shipping fees. (I'm still a student, so I won't be able to pay you.)

OK, maybe this sounds a little bit crazy, but you can get some benefits from this deal:
  1. You will get new books to read. Maybe there will be a lot, since I'm a giveaway maniac. LOL.
  2. You don't have to send me all the books I won. I only want to read certain books, so some of them will be entirely yours for FREE. (As an exchange for the shipping!)
  3. If I win 2 books, then 1 will be yours. If I win 4, then 2 will be yours. The list goes on and on... Of all the books I win, half will be yours.
  4. You will also get a secret gift from me once in a while. I promise it'll be something nice (though not necessarily expensive)!

  1. You are a resident of US/Canada.
  2. You love to read books.
  3. You don't mind paying for the shipping.
  4. You agree to send me the books I wish to read.
  5. You are at least 18 years old.

This deal is for 2011 only.

I think I would be interested in this. Could you give me an idea of what genre of books you would be entering into? My email is deadtossedwaves at gmail dot com and I am over 18.

Be careful with this Aik! I also won some books myself and asked a friend/fellow blogger to help me out and receive the books then forward them to me. I even told her to read them and I'll pay for the postal fees yet she ceased to reply and finaly went utterly silent. She doesn't even blog anymore. It might be personal problems, but she could have dropped me a mail that I shoudn't count on her anymore. Even a sorry would have been enough.
And here I thought she was trustworthy....so, be careful! <3

@Mary: I'm also wary about this at first, but I think I'll give it a try. If I come across an untrustworthy person, then the deal is off.

My first friend did send me some books, but she is currently having some financial problems and is not able to do it anymore, so I'm looking for someone else to work with.

I'll try to be optimistic about this and see how it turns out. Thanks for your concern!
