Giveaway! Book Read 'Round the World

Book Hobo wants to thank everyone for following his travels by giving away a few things he's found along the way!

I have been promising a giveaway for a LONG time, and I've finally acquired all the items I wanted to for my first giveaway! 

I wanted to thank all the bloggers who have signed up for Book Hobo's travels around the world so they'll get an extra entry, but the giveaway is open to everyone around the world as well!

Here are the items:

Two pairs of origami earrings made by my wonderful cousin!
Both pairs will come with earring backs
  • The first pair are paper cranes--they are very beautiful, but I couldn't get them to stand out well in a photograph
  • The second pair are paper kimono earrings

One SIGNED copy of The Lunatic Express by Carl Hoffman
(A BIG "Thank You" to Mr. Hoffman for providing his book for this event giveaway)

The only reason why I didn't list The Lunatic Express as a book in the event is that it was in hardcover so it was a little heavier than I wanted it to be for shipping. Mr. Hoffman was nice enough to send me an signed copy to giveaway for the event. I've bought a copy for myself and will review it in the near future (please keep me accountable on this--2 weeks from now bug me to post one)!

Kim at Sophisticated Dorkiness has reviewed The Lunatic Express on her blog. Click HERE to read her review.

What a lovely giveaway, Carin! The book sounds really nice and the earrings, well, they look beautiful! Does your cousin often make them?

Thanks for doing this giveaway. I ALSO have my first giveaway going on and ALSO started today. What a coincidence. However, mine is European only (next month I'll do an international one during Blogfest).

@leeswammes - Oh I see OpenID is working for you again! You don't have to put in your URL because if I click on your name it automatically takes me to your blog. :)

My cousin just finished making 100 pairs for an event she was involved in so when she posted pictures I asked her if I could buy two pairs for a giveaway for the Book Read 'Round the World event. She makes some really pretty things and how she can fold paper so tiny, I will never know!

@agirlreads - awww...but I am proud of you for resisting the urge to buy more or acquire more books. The contest is not over until October 1 so if you change your mind, you can still enter. Also, if you know of someone that likes earrings you could always give them away as a gift...shhhh...I promise I wouldn't tell that you won them if you do. LOL!

@Zee - Thanks! I'll let my cousin know. I think they are gorgeous too. She made a pair for me as a gift. I felt special! :)

I've signed in :)

I will search for the book too but finding the book I want is not easy here.

By the way. I can comment easily in this comment form :)
