Book Blogger Bingo

I've really enjoyed doing the recent giveaways so I thought I'd make it a regular thing.  After a few hours brainstorming, I came up with Book Blogger Bingo!



So what is Book Blogger Bingo? 

Basically, Book Blogger Bingo (BBB) will be a fortnightly giveaway, but done a little differently. Each fortnight I will put up a post featuring a book of my choice and you can enter to win that book by filling in your details on the linky thing below the post.

The number that the linky gives you will be your lucky Book Blogger Bingo number, so if you're the first person to enter that week, you'll be lucky number 1 and so on.

Posts will go live each Saturday morning, starting next Saturday - 11th June, alternating between a new bingo game one week and a winner post the next. Each BBB game will be open from the post date until the following Friday and I will announce the lucky number (drawn randomly using a source such as Random.org,) on the Saturday winners post.  It will then be down to the winner to contact me to claim their prize.

This will be International as long as The Book Depository ship to you (YAY! I hear you shout).  I'll post more information, including all the rules on the first BBB post on Saturday, but if you want more information now, I have added a page with all the details.

So, what do you think?  Are you up for a game of bingo?

Before I go, I'd really like to thank Slayra for the fantastic job she's done on the button and banner.  I only asked for help at lunchtime and by early evening she'd done me 4 buttons and 3 banners to choose from.  Thank you so much Slayra - you're a star!

Karen! This idea is genius! It's really lovely of you to hold it every fortnight as well.

None of my friends want to go to bingo with me, so my wants can be fulfilled here! Haha.
