We are just slightly under a month away from International Anita Brookner Day on July 16th. If you are wondering just what it is, then pop here. For those of you who have yet to begin the very, very easy challenge of participating in IABD, this is meant to be a kick in the pants. Remember all you have to do is read one novel by Anita Brookner by July 16th and then post about it on your blog or send me your thoughts/reviews and I will post them on the official IABD website.
All winners will get the paperback of their choice from the huge selection at The Book Depository.
Remember, you don’t have to have a blog to participate and win. One prize will be given for each category:
Best Brookner Related Musing (non-review)
Best Picture of your pet reading Anita Brookner (this can be interpreted loosely)
Participation Prize (random draw from those who didn’t win any of the other awards)
The fine print;
- Prizes will only be considered for those who submit their writing/picture or link to their blog post to my email address: onmyporch [at] hotmail [dot] com or savidgereads [at] gmail [dot] com. This is the only way we can ensure that everyone who wants to be included is.
- You must notify us no later than 11:00 PM U.S. Eastern Daylight Savings Time in order to be eligible.
- All entries will be posted on the official IABD website.
- Thomas of My Porch and I will be the judges.
***SPECIAL REQUEST: If you are a blogger submitting, please when you submit the link to your review/music post via email, can you also copy and paste the HTML draft of your review/musing in its entirety in the body of your email. I know in Blogger when you are editing a post you can click on the “Edit HTML” tab and then copy every single bit of info there and past it into the body of your email. Hopefully other blog platforms allow you to do likewise. This will greatly help streamline getting your post up on the IABD website.***
