For nine years, drawings for a free book were conducted from the email list of readers who subscribed to Nightstand Book Reviews. I used to choose the winners. An opportunity to win two free books was awarded to NBR readers that were subscribed to as well. Winners chose their book(s) from a list of popular titles.

Winners were notified by email and their names were posted here after they chose their books. The last drawing was held at the end of December, 2021. Congratulations to alllll the happy winners.  🙂
