My GINORMOUS Book Giveaway

Updated 2/18/12: Thanks to the 1036 people who entered to win! The giveaway is now over.

What do over 130 books from several leading, bestselling authors have in common? Your chance to win copies of them… for FREE.

I’m cleaning off the book shelves and giving away copies of extra books that I have around my office. Over 130 copies to be exact. These are hot titles from several bestselling authors who you have heard of and some high quality writers who you might not know (yet). The list of titles is primarily made up of two categories:

“Faith-Based / Christian Living” = Around 35 Books
Authors such as Max Lucado, Craig Groeschell, Mark Batterson, Tim Keller, and more.

“Business / Professional” = Around 95 Books
Authors such as Zig Ziglar, Donald Trump, Ken Blanchard, Malcom Gladwell, Jon Gordon, Chris Brogan and more. These business / professional books range in topics from business strategy, team building, leadership, social media, etc.

You can view the complete list as a PDF here.

Rather than just donate these extra books to the local library (which is what I normally do), I thought I’d try something different and give you a chance to snag them instead.

So, I’ve created the “GINORMOUS Book Giveaway” online.

Now through the end of the day on Friday, February 17, 2012 you can enter to win via this special form. (Updated 2/18/12: Thanks to the 1036 people who entered to win! The giveaway is now over.) There is no cost and I even cover the shipping for winners but it is limited to residence of the United States (simply because it would cost me too much to ship outside of the USA).

What’s the catch? No catch. For those who don’t know me, I’m in the publishing and book marketing business so I have lots of books. Some are sent to me, others are books I have personally read, etc. From time to time it’s good to purge and share the “book love” with others.

If you’re interested, I just ask you to do three things…

1. Sign Up. Fill out the form here (giveaway is now over) to enter. Make sure you read the instructions on the form itself, at the top of the form.

2. Share This with Others. Don’t be stingy, there are a lot of books to go around. Click the SHARE links below this post. I’ll be monitoring Social Media and those who share will get added weight when it comes down to winners that we pick. : )

3. Go Do Something Nice for Someone Else Today. This has nothing to do with the “GINORMOUS Book Giveaway” but everything to do with being a great human and helping to bring out the best in others. That should be worth it alone. Go and encourage someone else, do something intentionally nice for someone, etc.

      Daniel, I would just mention that the pitifully-stocked libraries in our nation’s prisons would be grateful for some of your books. I believe there may be a web site link to books for prisoners or similar title. This is what I plan to do with my next load of books instead of the library book sale. Thanks for your generosity.

      • Daniel Decker

         Great idea.

    • Joe Lalonde

      Daniel, that is quite a list of awesome books. Thanks for the chance to win these great materials!

      • Daniel Decker

         You are welcome. Thanks for stopping by.

    • Ammon

      One of the best things about actual books is the ability to lend or gift them once you’ve read them! This is extremely generous of you — kudos!

      • Daniel Decker

         : ) Indeed. Just wish they didn’t take up so much space.

    • Jviola79

      Hey Daniel, glad to see that you cherished my books too much to give them away :)

      • Daniel Decker

        Haha. I LOVE your books and encourage others to get them all the time. These that I am giving away are “extra” copies that I have. I’m keeping my core copies that I refer back to.

    • Steve Goble

      Looking forward to reading some of these books then passing them along to someone else!  Thank you for your generosity and the opportunity!

      • Daniel Decker

         Paying it forward… : )

        • Steve Goble

           I promise I will too when I’m done reading them!

    • Ivanhoe Sánchez

      Deal! Ginourmous Idea! Love it! I work on publishing too. I’ll try to apply this on my blog to benefit my readers.  Most of them are outside of the USA, but I´ll find a way to work it out.

      • Daniel Decker

         Giving is good.

    • Marty
