MULTIPLE BOOKS PURCHASED

If you have purchased multiple books, you have two options for entry:

Option 1: Multiple entries for a single prize.

For example, you may purchase 3 books and want to be entered 3 times for 1 prize. In this case, you would fill out the entry form for that prize and enter “3” when it asks for the number of entries. You will upload your receipt to validate that you purchased 3 books. This increases your likelihood of winning that prize.

Option 2: Split over multiple prizes.

For example, you may purchase 10 books and wish to split them between two prizes. In this case, you would fill out the entry form for prize #1 and enter “5” when it asks for the number of entries. You would the fill out the form for prize #2 and again enter “5”. You would upload the same receipt to both forms. You must fill out an entry form for each prize draw that you would like to enter.
