Super Duper Paperback Bundle Giveaway

Hi gang! Today I am here with a super awesome giveaway I am so excited to share with you all!

First off, a HUGE thanks to amazing reader and long-time GLBT romance community member Kris! Because Kris was cleaning out her bookshelves and realized she had tons of paperbacks. And instead of letting them languish, she instead offered them to me to give away to all of you! And not just that, but she is mailing them around the world, all the way from Australia, out of her kind and generous heart! So please join me in giving Kris huge love for her incredible thoughtfulness and generosity!

So yay! We have lots of books to give away! Kris has turned her library into 15 book bundles. They are mostly paperbacks, but there are also some graphic novels thrown in. To make her life a little less insane, this is a mystery bundle giveaway. Leave a comment below and you will be entered to win. We will pick 15 winners and each one will get a randomly selected, surprise gift of books generously sent your way by Kris.

Just to whet you appetite, here are pictures of the various book bundles…

    Thank you, Kris for being so awesome :D. Whether I win or not, I still admire you for doing this. Parting with your library and sending it all around the world is an enormous task. Living in Poland, I know how annoying it is to be excluded from giveaways (even though, I understand that shipping costs are horrendous). So, once more – thank you :).

  34. Thank you Kris, that is so generous of you. And thank you Jay for hosting the giveaway.
    I am certainly throwing my name in the hat in the hopes of a win, those look like some great reads in the bundles.

  35. Wow, that’s so great! Thanks Kris! 🙂

  39. Wow that is very generous. Good luck everyone!
