Gomineko Books Customer Appreciation Contest

gomineko contest
I wanted to take a sec to say thanks for all the orders of late, so I figured I’d make a honker of a contest. Post a pic of books ordered from me, tag @gominekobooks and #gominekobooks and you are entered. I know a lot of you are still waiting on books, they are coming! Contest ends August 31st, a winner will be picked randomly, from the hashtagged page and the winner will receive $1000 credit for anything I have a hand in, the books, the ig auctions, the tours…you can spend it on whatever you want! Only photos with purchases from me will be considered, thank you very very much for supporting Gomineko Books and helping sustain a quickly fading genre.

How could we go wrong? We can’t sir.
