Giveaway: First 3 Books in The Inheritance Cycle by Christopher Paolini

28 Oct

Hey everyone!

Yep, in conjunction with Exclusive Books Kolonnade I’m running a giveaway for one set of the first three novels in Christopher Paolini’s Inheritance Cycle – Eragon, Eldest and Brisingr. 🙂

As you all probably know, the final book in the series, titled Inheritance, will be released world-wide on the 8th of November of this year, bringing to a close one of the most popular (even in spite of a terrible big-screen adaptation) Fantasy series in the world.

Random House Struik (the South African division of Random House) have been kind enough to supply me with a set of the first three books, and as I’m a bookseller, too, I’ll be running the giveaway on the blog and in-store, simultaneously. What does that mean? Well, you can either enter here on the blog, or if you’re heading into Exclusive Books Kolonnade any time soon (but before the 8th of November) you can enter in-store.

As I’d like to get as many entries as possible for this giveaway I’m not going to make it difficult to enter:

If you’d like to enter here on the blog, all you need to do is leave a comment on this post with your name and email address so that I can contact the winner once the giveaway ends. Entries are limited to people in South Africa, please – postage is hectically expensive!

If you’d like to enter in-store, all you need to do is pre-order a copy of Inheritance – your contact details will be taken by the booksellers.

Entries close on the 7th of November at 11PM – the winner will be announced here on the blog (be it someone who entered here or someone who entered in-store) and in-store on the 8th of November as soon as we start opening the boxes. The winner will be chosen by me by running the amount of entries through, just so everyone knows it’s fair. 🙂

Please note: I’ve only got one set to giveaway – if the winner is one of those who left a comment on the blog, the set will be posted through to you. If the winner is one of the people who pre-ordered Inheritance in-store, the winner will be notified via a phone-call and will be able to pick up the prize at their convenience.

Exclusive Books Kolonnade is situated in the Kolonnade Shopping Centre on Zambezi Drive in Montana Park, Pretoria, on the first floor close to the Ster Kinekor entrance.

So there we go – you can enter here on the blog or in-store, and the winner will be notified and announced on the 8th – Release Day!

Until next time,
