As a bookseller and reviewer I have the pleasure of receiving advance and promotional copies of upcoming and newly released books. This is a wonderful thing, since I love books. But, after almost two years, they do tend to pile up and even I have only so much space I can devote to my books. I also feel that the only thing better than reading books is sharing them with others who feel the same way.
In that spirit, we are offering to share in our bounty of books with our patrons. This is the way it works:
* Purchase at least $15.00 on our bookstore site @ : http://spbooks.alibrisstore.com/ to qualify for a free bonus book.
*On confirmation of your qualifying order, we will email you a list of the Advance Reader/Promotional copies we are offering as a free bonus book. From this list you make 3 choices. Your choices should be made in order of preference : #1- the one you want most, #2 your second pick, and so on… Then reply with your choices from the list to us at : firstname.lastname@example.org
We must receive your choices within 24 hours of our sending you the list in order to have your free book included with your order.
* All books included on the list are distributed on a first come – first served basis. So if two people request the same title on the same day as their free bonus book, the request that we receive first will be honored and you will receive the next title on your choice list.
* The additional book will not affect any shipping you may have been charged when ordering.
* In the interest of fairness to the publishers and authors who provide us with these copies, we will not offer any titles that have been released in the last three(3) months, nor any copies that have not released yet and for a three(3) month period after their release.
We hope you enjoy this new program and know that it is our way of thanking our fellow booklovers.
I have provided a sample list of some of the titles we are offering below. Some of these have been signed by the author. We hope all who take advantage of this offer will truly enjoy their gift from us at Simple Pleasures Books & Gifts.
And remember, when you’re done reading.. share it with a friend.
