Spooktacular Hachette Book Giveaway (USA) and Dracula Giveaway (non-USA)

Update: Contest closed.

I have been trying to figure out what I can do to celebrate Halloween on this blog, since I don’t often read horror novels or stories. Well, Hachette Book Group USA has solved that for me. They’ve offered me some boxes full of books for USA readers of Rebecca Reads. These are their “spookiest” books in honor of Halloween.

To add some fun for the non-USA readers, I’m also giving away one copy of Dracula by Bram Stoker to a non-USA resident.

Non-USA Contest: Dracula by Bram Stoker

Since I was recently out of the USA for more than a year, I know what it’s like to miss out on giveaways like Hachette’s! I really can’t send you all ten books out of my own pocket, but I do want to offer you something.

When I look at the list, the book I most want to read is Dracula by Bram Stoker. I’ve decided to send a lucky non-USA resident a copy of that book, from Rebecca Reads to you.


To enter, leave a comment indicating which contest you’re in (Hatchette USA or Dracula non-USA).  That’s really all you need to do right now.

But you know what I really want you to do? Find another post on Rebecca Reads and leave a comment.

For the rest of October, I’ll donate 10 cents to World Food Programme for every (non-spam) comment I receive on any post of Rebecca Reads. See most post on Blog Action Day 2008 here. I’m also donating any proceeds from my Amazon Store. Spread the word: more people will visit Rebecca Reads, comment, and thereby I’ll donate more to the World Food Programme.

The deadline for this contest is Friday, October 24, 2008, 11:59 p.m. CDT. Winners will be selected via random.org and announced on Saturday, October 25, 2008 on Rebecca Reads.

  6. Dracula is one classic I have never read, but I would love to. So count me in for the drawing for that one. As far as I know Armenia is not part of the US, so no Hachette-bookbox for me. 😉 Am I really the first one to enter the Dracula contest?!

    BTW, Rebecca, I didn’t realize you had moved back to the US. Or maybe you did and I just missed it. Anyway, I hope the move back went well and you are all settled in.

  7. Please enter me to win the Hachette USA set of books.
    Thank you & I wish you best of luck in raising money for the World Food Programme.

  10. Free books?  I’m in.  I’ll die when the pile on my headboard falls over and crushes me.  My body will not be discovered for several days, because everyone will be busy readng the books uncovered in the  avalanche. 

  11. Myrthe, yes, so far you are the only international person interested. I guess I only enter contests I’m interested too, so I shouldn’t be surprised!

    We moved at the end of August. I put up a post saying it was happening and then there were two weeks of automatic posts, so it didn’t seem very obvious. It did go very well!

  12. What great giveaways/projects!

    (Hilarious, Ellen–it’s like your version of Sister Hinckley’s comment about wanting to go out of life smeared in chocolate and carrying casseroles.)

    Anyway, put me in for Hatchette.

  13. Book Hugger, Ace Reviewer and Biblioholic
    There’s no such thing as too many books!
