I am not sure this is the RIGHT saying for what I wanted to discuss — but let’s go with it, hmm?
Years ago — I had perfected the ART of Regifting. There were many, many things that I was given that either a) I didn’t like, b) had no use for or c) both. There have been times when I have also given away BOOKS that I have received because I wasn’t something I would normally read.
We all have are own reasons for hosting giveaways, yes? Some, for followers. Don’t even get me started are this. Others, to share the looooove *raises hand* and then there is the good ol LET’S CLEAN OUT THE SHELVES giveaways. Not to mention, milestones, blog tours etc etc etc
But what about using a book you WON to use as a giveaway of your OWN?
What if I entered to win an extremely HYPED BOOK. Out of ALL THE ENTRIES, I won. But I don’t want to read it, it doesn’t interest me. So what do I do? I give it away! Mo’ Books Mo’ problems, right?
I was excited for the book so I entered the giveaway. At some point, I changed my mind about reading it. So, I gave it away.
I won the book. Read it — but wasn’t something I wanted to hold onto. Therefore, GIVEAWAY.
I wont a box of mystery books and well, WHAT ARE THESE TITLES? *GIVES THEM AWAY*
Is there a BIG DIFFERENCE between all these scenarios?
Either way you look at it — I won the book. It is mine to do with as a please. So what does it really matter??
Let’s talk about the different scenarios
- #1 — is it wrong? What would you do if you saw someone entering giveaways just to give it away themselves? Have you done it?
- #2 & #3 — Is there any difference between these two?
- #4 has happened to me SEVERAL TIMES which is why I don’t enter MYSTERY giveaways. Have you received books that you didn’t want and used them as a giveaway?
- Do yo Recycling Giveaway Winnings?
