I must be having a lucky winner’s streak lately when it comes to book treats! A couple of weeks ago, I randomly won a giveaway on goodreads for Randy Alcorn’s book, “Deadline” (book #1 in the “Ollie Chandler” Series). Alcorn’s Eternal Perspective Ministries sent me a copy in the mail after I’d been alerted I’d won. I was pretty excited, as stuff like this never happens to me!
The only drawback is that when you win a giveaway, you’re sort of under obligation to write a review of the book as soon as possible on goodreads. It’s like a free ad for the publisher. While I want to read the book, I may not want to read it for some time yet. I’m in the middle of a really good one right now! In fact, I would prefer it if I could have the freedom to choose to read it a while from now. But then, it was me who signed up for the giveaway in the first place…
I’m not sure what I’ll do about it yet. For the meantime, I wrote a temporary thank you in place of a review on goodreads. It was pretty exciting to win something for once!
Have you ever signed up for book giveaways and won?
