BOL Gives Away Books in "Happy Hour"

Leading European Internet bookseller BOL is giving away a selection of books between 3.30 and 5.30 pm on Wednesday, August 4, to mark its six-month anniversary.

Customers will get a choice of five bestsellers and will be able to obtain a book, one per mailing address, without incurring any packing charges or other obligations, says BOL.

"Following our tremendously successful summer promotions with Hannibal and Harry Potter, we are pleased to present another excellent offer to our customers, thanking them for helping us become so successful in such a short period of time," said Alexander Broich, managing director for BOL in the UK.

"This is the first stage of our dramatic campaign to keep offering BOL customers the best books at great prices."

The choice of bestsellers consists of Patricia Cornwell's "Point of Origin," Alex Garland's "The Tesseract," Nick Leeson's "Rogue Trader," Chris Stewart's "Driving over Lemons," and Shawn Levy's "Rack Pack Confidential."

BOL will send out 20,000 books on a first-come, first-serve basis. Books have to be ordered through a special check-out, and anyone placing an order via the normal route will be charged full price.
