The Twelve Days of Bookmas Giveaway

Because it was so much fun last year, we have decided to bring back the Twelve Days of Bookmas Giveaway, a book giveaway just in time for holiday gift-giving or as a little treat for yourself.

Since we close over the holidays and we want to make sure you receive your prizes in plenty of time to place under the tree, the contest will actually be held the first twelve days of December, beginning on December 1 and ending on December 16 (posts will run Monday through Friday only). And in an effort to involve as many people across the country as possible, we won't be posting the blogs until noon EST.

On each day we’ll post a clue, riddle, or quiz for readers to answer. The first reader to post the correct answer in the comment section will win the prize of the day, although unlike last year we won't be telling you who the winner is until the next day when we make the announcement. Just like last year, these aren’t going to be simple quizzes. They’re going to take a little research on your part, because finding the perfect gift always means a bit of a hunt.

In order to bring everyone into the fun, we’ve asked our clients to participate. They’ll know the answer (and no, they will not give in to bribes) and will be posting clues all over the Internet, clues that can be found through Twitter, Facebook, blogs, websites, or any other social media outlet we haven’t thought of. Participating clients and their contact information (where their clues can be found) will be listed on each day’s post.

A few rules and extra hints:

If you’re a Twitter follower, note that we’ll be using the hashtag #bookmas

There will only be one winner each day and each person/address is only eligible to win once throughout the course of the contest.

Prizes will be at the discretion of BookEnds.

Winners will be announced on the following day’s blog.

And to make things extra special, a number of our clients will be running side contests, so don’t just go to one or two links, check them all out to double your prize.

And finally, a sneak preview of where clues can be found (in no particular order):
