I was lucky enough to receive a book when I first joined the Gransnet
What is the date when we apply to be in the draw for the monthly choice?
I thought it was mid month i.e. now ish.
Looking at the threads people are presently receiving the March book although I note that it is late arriving.
Have I got the date wrong for entering the draw? When is the April book due to be announced?
Thank you Gransnetters.

I should imagine it would be quite soon. Keep looking out for it.

I put a reminder in my calendar to check on 15th of the month.

The draw's open now, until 20 March.

I've put my name forward.
Thank you for the info and a mention to the kind gransnetter who PM me at 7am on the day the draw was opened. Fingers crossed smile

chelseababy I must I had no idea that I'd be told if I'm being sent a book. (Told you I was new to this!)
Would a message be in my Gransnet inbox?
There's no message in mine sad.
I don't mind buying one as it looks pretty good.

I must admit

gmelon you don’t get told when you are going to get a book, so it’s a lovely surprise when it lands on the doormat.😁They come directly from the publishers and sometimes there’s no indication of Gransnet inside.

GN started sending out emails recently to the lucky ones. So if you haven’t had an email yet, like me you won’t be getting April’s book. sad

I've had a look and it is released to buy on the fourth of April.
Happy reading.

Hi gmelon,

Sorry we haven't answered your query sooner. smile

We don't have a set date each month when the prize draw opens, but it's usually around the middle of the previous month. The best way to look out for it is by making sure you're signed up to our daily newsletter, as we feature the giveaway in there, and checking the homepage and books index.

We notify winners by email, but if you buy yourself a copy of the book, you're more than welcome to join in on the conversation! grin
