#SuperDad! Fathers Day Giveaway Hop

Super Dad Fathers Day 2014 L 

Father's Day is just around the Corner and MamaNYC is hosting a wonderful blog hop in honor of fathers everywhere.  Giveaways start now and run until June 18th.

In honor of my Dad, I am giving away something that is of interest to him in a sense.  My Dad is a fan of the TV series Game of Thrones.  So much so that he buys the seasons as they come out on DVD.  

So for this giveaway I am giving away the Game of Thrones (Song of Fire and Ice) book boxset and season 1 of the TV series on DVD.

Giveaway for both is US only!  Total value is over $100!

 INT winners-Do not Despair!  For you-I offer the first  two books of the Game of Thrones from The Book Depository.  I know it is not as much but I want to make sure everyone can get something for this occasion!

  1. I love Game of Thrones, both the show and the books. My interest started slipping in the last few books though, I think the show has the potential to keep my interest all the way through!

  2. My husband loves GoT. I'm a little squeamish and some of the scenes are a little too gruesome for me. I'll close my eyes and let him tell me when it's ok to open them again.

  13. I was hooked on the game of thrones show from the very first episode. Each episode makes you love and hate a new character. King Joffrey was really something else. I liked that a lot of the characters ended up transforming throughout each episode.

  15. Best Father's Day gift the kids have given my husband was a photo album with just pictures of them doing silly things and I love you notes for his last deployment...it was his favorite by far. He is obsessed with Game of Thrones but I've never watched it, he is trying to catch up now that he's home but it's on HBO so we can't watch it.

She is still little, but he has always seemed a little grumpy to her and she was a bit nervous around him. But one day she actually handed him a book and made him read to her, which I know meant a lot to him.

    ReplyDelete
  87. Have I ever mentioned how awesome you are? This is perfectly timed too - I've decided to give up my refusal to read/watch the show/books until the series is finished, because at this point, everything is going to be spoiled! And Father's Day...well I snagged my favourite mug that I'd given to my dad for Father's Day haha (in my defense he'd left it when he moved out, so I'm not a terrible daughter!)
