How it Works!

May 10, 2010

Okay, so we had a snafu. These things happen. But the ladies behind the Book Blogger Con are nothing if not resourceful, and we’re back now and ready to rock.

Welcome (again) to the Book Blogger Convention’s first annual charity auction to benefit First Book!

Here’s how it’s gonna go down.

  • Each post will feature an item or prize bundle.
  • Bidding goes live at 10pm Eastern, today, May 10th.
  • Place bids in the comments.
  • Bidding closes at 5pm Eastern, on Friday, May 21st.
  • All items available for shipment in the US only.
  • The final commenter (the person with the highest bid) wins the item.
  • Failure to pay for items won within 72 hours of invoice will result in forfeit of the item, and the prize will be awarded to the second highest bidder. And so on….but we hope it doesn’t come to that.

Check out the individual posts here on the blog and comment to bid.
