One of my favorite parts of blogging is giveaways! I love winning things and I love giving things also. I host quite a few giveaways here on The Book Basement and plan on hosting more. I just love letting others read the books I love as well.
However, I do have a few giveaway rules that are standard--meaning, they'll be effective for all giveaways on The Book Basement.
I take private information very seriously. I never share your personal information with anyone else. Please do not leave your email addresses in comments. I know that there are young(er) bloggers that like to enter giveaways, and I wouldn't want their personal information getting out and being spread. If you leave your email address in a comment, you'll be disqualified for the giveaway.
As of 2012, I will no longer be posting the winners. Don't get me wrong, I will continue to choose winners (always via Random.org) and notify them if they've won, but I won't be putting a separate blog post, saying who won. Instead, the winner will just be put on the original giveaway post.
I do not appreciate dishonesty. Please, please be honest and if I find that you lied about something when entering a giveaway (ex. say you tweeted about it, but didn't), I'll disqualify that entry.
If you have read and can comply with the things above, yay! Go ahead and enter all the giveaways on my site as you want!
