I love to enter competitions but do not have a lot of time. So if I spot something and entering is quick and easy I do it. Last Friday Exclusive books launched a competition for a one minute shopping dash on their Facebook page - you just had to email your name, your local branch and telephone number. Which I did, but did not win. This past Friday they did the same - by chance a colleague was on Facebook at 10am when they put the competition out and we all emailed immediately. At 12:10 another colleague shouted from the far end of the open plan office that I had won for our local branch. Boy, was I happy. A dream for any book lover. It was followed by an email explaining to me what to do.
At our local branch the manger gave me big bags and cleared the area for me for one minute. Initially I thought that I would get a lot of kiddies books for the next couple of parties, but there were almost nothing in Afrikaans and a lot of the English stuff was quite cheap (did some scouting before hand) So I decided to get a nice couple of coffee table books, and something for the kids. In 1 minute I got 23 items )21 books and 2 Indy girl audio books for the princess) to the value of R 3 040,00. What a joy - a lot of reading happened over the weekend and the kids loved their books too.Thanks Exclusive books !
BTW - you should see that @Taste Marocco@ book - actually 3 books in a box - one about the place, one about the food(and recipes) and one about the architecture and design.
