To celebrate World Book Night UK 2013 (@worldbooknight) on the 23rd of April, I am running a competition for my Twitter and WordPress followers (based in the UK) to win some books!
The rules are quite simple: to enter you must currently reside in the UK (eligible for Royal Mail delivery), be a follower of newtonoakley on either Twitter or WordPress and you must tweet a favourite literary quote or a reason to be passionate about reading tagged @newtonoakley #book. For example:
@newtonoakley #book ‘It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.’
@newtonoakley #book Escapism, I can always visit Narnia when my own wardrobe is boring.
(Of course, your reason will probably be less silly…)
Five (5) winners will be picked (see notes below) and their Twitter handles posted. Winners should then send a direct message to @newtonoakley via Twitter; with their full name and email address.
MULTIPLE ENTRIES PER PERSON WILL BE ACCEPTED FOR THIS COMPETITION REGARDLESS OF THE METHOD OF ENTRY, HOWEVER ONLY ONE PRIZE CAN BE WON PER ENTRANT. WINNING ENTRIES WILL BE CHOSEN FOR THE INTEREST IN A BOOK GENERATED BY THEIR TWEET (I.E. @newtonoakley READS BOOK AS A RESULT) OR BY THE POIGNANCY OF TWEET.
NOTES: Kate Oakley and affiliates are not responsible for: any incorrect or inaccurate entry information; human errors; technical malfunctions; failures, omissions, interruptions, deletions or defects of any telephone network, computer online systems, computer equipment, servers, providers, or software, including without limitation any injury or damage to participant’s or any other person’s computer relating to or resulting from participation in the competition; inability to access the Entry Sites (Twitter/Wordpress); By entering the competition, entrants confirm that they have read and accepted these rules.
WINNER SELECTION: Five (5) winners will be selected from among all eligible entries on or about 27/04/2013 by @newtonoakley. If a prize notification or prize is returned as undeliverable for any reason, the prize will be awarded to an alternate winner in a subsequent selection. Prize is not transferable or redeemable for cash. No substitution for the prize by the winner will be allowed.
PRIZES: Five (5 to be awarded) books – one per winning entrant – in either digital (Kindle/iBooks) or paper format.
