No more entries allowed for #Pairathon challenge. It’s CLOSED folks. :D Thanks for joining. Will have winners announced and emailed by tomorrow evening. Continue to join in the pairing fun by using the hashtag #Pairathon! Thanks!
Listen up folks, I’m giving you an excuse to DRINK WINE, READ BOOKS, WIN BOOKS.
Make sure to read through this whole post.
The premise is simple. I want to see what you’re out there reading and drinking or eating during Bout of Books. I’m nosy. But I also think that books and wine/food/tea/coffee/beer are better when enjoyed together. So let’s share?
Share your pairing and you’ll be entered to win a $50 gift certificate to Amazon (or comparable bookstore of your choice) to buy books!
The prize is open to ALL participants who submit their photos TODAY. 24 hours and then we’re done. Global baby. Winner will be chosen randomly. And, at the end of the week, I’ll share some of my favorites on the blog! So no money there, but instant bragging rights.
(We’re all closed for entries for the challenge!)
There are multiple ways to enter: Post a comment or photo about your pairing (books with wine/food/soda/beer/etc) and tag it with the hashtag #Pairathon on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Google+, Pinterest, OR Leave a comment on this post describing what you’re pairing with your books Rules to win: Leave a comment on this blog post with your pairing or the link to where you posted it on social media to be entered into the contest. Only participants in Bout of Books 8.0 will be eligible to win a prize (if you haven’t signed up already, do so here). You only have 24 hours to complete this challenge to be considered for a prize (closes at midnight CST on Monday August 19). If you’re drinking wine or another alcoholic beverage as a pairing, you must be 21 to enter or 18 depending on the country where you reside. Just follow the laws of your country! :D
Though we can certainly keep the #Pairathon going all week, only those who participate in the first day are eligible to win the prize. If you’re really in the pairing spirit, consider swinging by and joining me and Amanda for a #Pairathon Twitter party at 8 PM CST! Basically, ANOTHER excuse to get your Monday drinking in :D
To recap, pair something today. Tell me what you’re doing. Be legal. Be a Bout of Books participant. Oh. And HAVE FUN! See you out there #pairathon-ers!
