Free Books! Win 20 Pounds of Columbia University Press! Now with more boxes than ever!
We have some good news for you! As part of our seasonal office cleanup, we’re giving away books for free. They come in 20-pound boxes, and while we’ve given away twenty or so boxes in previous years, this time we have over fifty! The first fifty-seven people to email their name and mailing address to firstname.lastname@example.org will win a free box of books from Columbia University Press.
Books are “as is”, and might be missing jackets or have slight damage to the cover or pages, but we tried especially hard not to include any with damage that would make them unreadable (the majority of books are in excellent condition; some even come shrink-wrapped). Each box contains approximately 20 lbs. of books, and can be titles in a range of subject areas, new or old. We made sure to include only one copy of a title in any given box.
Please note that books can only be shipped to U.S. or Canadian addresses, no PO boxes. The contest is not open to employees of Columbia University Press or Perseus Distribution, or their families. Again, send your name and mailing address to email@example.com for your chance to win!
