Oh, I get it. You're waiting for incentive.

Well, here's some:

I'm hosting a contest. What better way to use the extra books I snagged at BEA? What I'm looking for, specifically, is help getting the word out about the Summer Book Exchange 2.0. If you're interested in helping out--and I know there are some awesome people who are willing to do this out of the goodness of their hearts--then you'll be eligible to win a copy of:
(It's awesome, btw.)
What kind of publicity am I talking about? Here are some ideas:
  • You could do a Waiting on Wednesday (or On My Wishlist, etc.) post highlighting some books you hope to get in the exchange. 
  • It could just be a straight-up informational post saying, "Hey guys, have you heard of the Summer Book Exchange at Ruby's Reads?"
  • You could make a list outlining the reasons participating in a book exchange is good for the soul. 
  • You could write up a post outlining the awesome time you've had participating in previous exchanges.
  • Be creative!
More specifically, here's the deal (also known as the rules):
  1. The contest is open until sign ups for the exchange close (June 30). The winner will be chosen during the following week, and will have 48 hours to respond or I will choose a new winner.
  2. To be eligible, you must do the following:
    1. Sign up for the exchange.
    2. Post about the Summer Book Exchange 2.0 on your blog. This post must include the event button (above, and in the sidebar), and a link to the sign-up post.
  3. If you host a giveaway as incentive for people to sign up, you double your chances of winning.
  4. To enter the contest, please fill out THIS form.
That's it! We always have a lot of fun with the exchange, and many people make new friends and meet new bloggers. Even if you don't want to help out with publicity, I highly encourage people to sign up anyway! Remember...books are the best gifts...
