Mother’s Day Giveaway — 2009

by Jennifer


I often get the most out of Mother’s Day by treating myself to a little something. For example, this year I have been so pleased with this Mother’s Circle Pendant Necklace from Bliss Living (Read my review and enter to win one for yourself at 5 Minutes for Giveaways).

I’m so excited to announce our first (hopefully with more to come) giveaway event. We are going to feature some special books that are just for you (mother or not, as long as you’re a booklover). We will have one giveaway a day between April 15 – 25. In all we will give away 15 books worth over $225. We’ll have novels, memoirs, other non-fiction, and books to encourage a mother’s heart.

So it’s my hope that you will find some great books here that you’ll want to win. Each book will have at least one winner (and each separate contest will be listed here as it publishes for your ease in clicking through to enter), and one person will win the grand prize of every single book we feature in this giveaway.

Scroll down for information on how to enter the grand prize giveaway. Leave a comment on each individual post to enter to win that book:

  1. Old World Daughter, New World Mother
  2. The Proposal
  3. The Little Pink Books
  4. Don’t Let Me Go
  5. Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Home
  6. The School of Essential Ingredients (excerpt in On Reading column)
  7. Things I Want My Daughters to Know
  8. The Double-Daring Book for Girls
  9. Word Gets Around
  10. The Uncommon Woman: Making an Ordinary Life Extraordinary
  11. Momma Loves Her Little Son
  12. Chicken Soup for the Soul — two books

You can earn ONE entry for the grand prize (one copy of each book in this giveaway, valued at over $225) by doing one of these things (U.S. shipping addresses only):

  • If you are blogger: Write a post alerting your readers to this contest, letting them know that we will have new giveaways every day from April 15 – 25 (and open for new entries through April 30), and linking back to this page. We’d also love it if you’d keep the button (get code below) in your sidebar for the rest of the month.
  • If you are not a blogger: Send an email to at least 10 people letting them know about our contest which will feature a new giveaway every day from April 15 – 25 (and open for new entries through April 30). Link to this page, and also copy me on the email (5minutesforbooks(AT)gmail{dot}com).

Leave a comment below — only AFTER you have done this. If you blogged it, leave the link to your post in your comment. If you copied me on the email to your friends, that’s your verification. Each person can have ONE entry, and I want to make it fair for those of you who are helping spread the book-giveaway love. If I cannot immediately verify that you did one of these two things, I will delete your comment (and you’ll have to comment again when you have spread the word).

That’s for the grand prize, but all you have to do to enter each individual book is to leave a comment on that particular post!

New here? Please take the time to follow 5M4B on twitter subscribe to our feed or on the top left sidebar you can sign up to have our posts emailed to you, so you won’t miss our reviews and giveaways.

All giveaways will be open for entries through April 30. We will post the winners of all the contests and the grand prize winner here on May 1.
