Game of Thrones Giveaway!

Happy St. Patrick's Day, readers! Is it your lucky day? We'll see...

This coming week, we'll be reading Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin. If you haven't hopped on the bandwagon and found out what all the hype is about - or if you love the book and just don't have your very own copy - you can win one from Review Me Twice!

How to enter:
- Comment on this post! You can comment once per day this week (through Saturday, March 23, 2013) and each comment will be counted as an entry.  You must comment on THIS POST ("Game of Thrones Giveaway!") for your comment entry to count.  You also MUST be signed in or give us a way to contact you!  If you're logged in as "Unknown" and don't leave a name/email, we don't really have a way of letting you know that you've won.
- Like us on Facebook for another entry. (If you already like our page, you will automatically be entered once.) (Facebook does not allow us to see everyone who likes our page, so this option is now invalid. Sorry for any confusion.  However, that doesn't mean you shouldn't like us!  You should totally still hit that "like" button.)
- Comment on our Facebook announcement of this contest for another entry (once).
- Share our page/our post on Facebook.  One entry/day.
- One tweet per day to @ReviewMeTwice or retweet of our posts, posted between now and midnight EST on Saturday, March 23, 2013, counts as another entry. (While we encourage you to tweet/retweet us as much as possible, you will only get one extra entry/day.) Following us on Twitter does not give you an entry but you should do it anyway.

You can have a maximum of 23 22 entries: 7 for commenting on this post daily; 1 for liking us on Facebook; 1 for commenting on our Facebook announcement of this giveaway; 7 for sharing our page/post on Facebook daily; 7 for tweeting at us or retweeting our post daily.

How to win:
We will compile all the entries (as defined above) and, at midnight EST on March 24, 2013, we will choose one at random to be our winner. The winner will be announced here on the blog on Sunday, March 24, 2013 at 8am EST. When the winner is chosen, they will be notified through the medium in which they entered (Facebook, Twitter, or on the blog) and also in the blog post on Sunday, March 24, 2013, and given instructions on how to give us their mailing information so that we can mail the prize to them.  

Winner must live in the contiguous 48 United States (or provide a mailing address there). Entries must be in English (not hating on other languages, but it's the only language we both speak, and we want to be able to understand you) and must be intelligible (no gibberish or spamming... try to at least write a sentence of some value). "Intelligible" is up to our discretion and will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis as needed. There is no age requirement for eligibility.

Other Important Details:
Prize will be mailed via United States Postal Service, with no signature required. A delivery confirmation number will be provided to the winner upon mailing, via email. We are not responsible for delivery errors made by the USPS.
Prize is a new paperback copy of George R. R. Martin's novel, Game of Thrones, first book in the A Song of Ice and Fire series.
If the winner refuses the prize (example: winner commented without meaning it to be an entry) a second winner will be chosen. If the winner does not provide a valid mailing address within one week of winner announcement (to be posted on the blog on Sunday, March 24, 2013 at 8am EST), a second winner will be chosen. If the second winner refuses the prize or does not provide a valid mailing address within one week of being announced, no further winners will be chosen, and the prize will be donated to the Friends of the Virginia Beach Public Library.

If you have questions, comment on this post, tweet us @ReviewMeTwice (it will count as an entry!), or email us at ReviewMeTwice [at] gmail [dot] com.


  1. I was thinking of picking up this series. I hope I win!

  2. I second Sarah's comment. I have been wanting to get into this series. Everyone always raves about how good it is. I hope I win!

  3. I've heard a lot about the books and the show so I'm very interested in checking it out. Thank you for running the giveaway :)

  4. I would like to enter! =)
    I have been wanting to try this series!

  5. Don't count this as an entry as I have print, e-book and audio copies of the entire series- I'm a goober-, but I have to ask, have either of you not read this before or is this jsut a re-read for reviewing purposes?

    1. I have read it before (or, at least I've read the first two books.) Alex, however, has not read any of them. So we thought, with the season starting up and the popularity it has, let's do a giveaway!

    2. Like Cassy said, I've never read it... but I'm loving it. It was a good excuse to finally get around to sitting down and reading it. It looks intimidatingly long, but it goes pretty quickly.

  6. Love the television series. I'm curious about the book and would like to read it.

  7. Many of my college friends are into this series on television, and when I heard it was a book series I considered picking it up. If I win then I shall have a better chance of reading it. :)

  8. Don't mind me, just trying to increase my odds :)

  9. Here I am, entering the giveaway again! Woot!

  10. Cool giveaway, falling in love with the TV series.

  11. TGIF! Definitely want to read this after reading the review.

  12. Here I am again, looking forward to a new fantasy series to get into! :)

  13. Entering at the last minute because I am a procrastinator ;(

  14. I would like to enter please :-)
