It’s been a nice, leisurely weekend for me, so I’m feeling generous.

Because I love Stieg Larsson’s Millennium Trilogy, I’m giving away a paperback boxed set of the series this week.


I’m raffling off this brand new boxed set, which contains the volumes of the Millennium trilogy (The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played With Fire, and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest) in mass market paperback (P795 at National Book Store).

Here’s how you can win this prize:

3. Entries will be accepted until Sunday, March 6, 6 pm, Manila time.

4. One raffle entry per email address, per person (in other words one entry per person). I will reply to your entry in the comments section to validate it, and I reserve the right to weed out suspicious entries.

5. One lucky winner will be drawn via Winner will be announced here within three days after the end of the entry period. screenshot will accompany the announcement of the winners.

6. An email will also be sent to the winner to request his or her (Philippine) mailing address. The prize will be packaged securely and sent via a local courier, unless I will be seeing the winner anytime soon (e.g. FFP book discussion, FBB meetup, quiz night, geek fight or whatnot).

  1. I’ve been told by a friend of mine that this is a great book and she actually have two copies and lend me the extra, but i haven’t been able to read this as this is not my usual genre, maybe having the complete set will help me start to read this. I think i’m missing out on a great story.

  2. So many people have read this book and i haven’t yet! ha ha.
    So i’m joining so i could join in the bandwagon and discuss the book with you guys after i get a chance to read it :)

  3. Generous gift naman nito…

    I’ve seen the swedish movie and I love it. Matagal ko ng gusto mabasa ito but I can;t afford it since I been saving up some money for my wedding I been cutting my book expenses. I hope I win… *crossesfingers*

  4. I’ve always wanted to have copies of these but the price is too high. Can’t afford books as expensive as these as of now because of joining activities and having projects at school that requires expensive materials! Being a Comm.Arts students really have its cons. Anyway, I want to win these because it will surely be treasured like those other books I have in me, and it will be a great addition to my yet-small collection of books! :) Please, do let me win! <3

  5. Hi Blooey! I have been pretty interested with this series but am hesitant to buy it because I’m saving up for something. Thanks for the giveaway! It’s really generous. :-D

  6. HEY BLOOEY~ this is so generous of you to giveaway this boxset! Hee I’m eyeing these trilogy for a year already but still didn’t buy the boxset because it’s mpb! I’m saving up for the deluxe boxset (elegant covers).

    BUT I’ll still join! haha! Who am I to ignore such boxset giveaways? I want these books because aside from having it beautifully on my bookshelves, I am starting to like reading mystery books! I heard it’s a kick-ass mystery trilogy and the way Blooey squee about the book? It’s still ringing in my ears. haha

    Anyway, I hope I win! haha!

    1. :) Ishay! I didn’t realize I hadn’t replied. Mysteries are fun, aren’t they!

      Reading this trilogy is a good start, if you like it enough, then you can “do a Blooey” and upgrade to the deluxe set :)

  7. I want to win because I haven’t read the series yet. This is part of the list of books that I’m eyeing to buy and read since last year, but my long list is still fully packed and I still don’t have the resources to buy all of them.

    Thanks for this generous giveaway!

  8. I want to win this giveaway because I’m a PI in training and I bet I can get a lot of tips in this trilogy. :P Besides, this would probably be the only way I can get to experience Sweden without having to pay for it! ^^

  9. I already read all the three books of the series and fell in love with them. I have my own copies of the books but I want to enter so that I can give it as a present to a friend. I want to share my experience on reading this amazing series. :)

  10. I am always intrigued by this trilogy and since its boxed set.. this would be for sure a collector’s item.. and for keeps :D Here’s wishing to my lucky stars and my guardian angel and calling the universe to have the odds on my favor especially now am staying at home and have most of the time free to read the trilogy and make my own review about it. I also wanted to watch the movie however I wanted to read it first! :D

  11. i like boxed sets :) and also, i’ve been hearing/reading about this series from mika for the longest so it’s really about time i read it. now go, universe, do your work! :)

  12. Wow! Thanks for thid giveaway Blooey!

    Of course, like the rest above I would like to read this just to know what the hype is all about and to know for myself if the series is any good. Plus, I want to read it in the time for the David Fincger movie!

    Thanks! ^_^

  13. Because I have been on a major reading slump since the year started. I have picked up lots of books but gave up after a few chapters. This trilogy has received all raves and might just be the cure I need :)

  14. Because I really want to read this and add this to my collection. I’ve seen this on the shelf but I always get my hands on a different book. Hope this will come to my hands. Now. For good. Hehehe…let the power of probability begin!

  15. can’t afford to give my money for baon books in my birthday trip since i need to keep my savings for my trip alone in a strange country this March.. Hope to get my luck in your give away book so it’ll keep me company during my birthday strolling around SG. Mark me as the winner!!!! >

  16. Well, because I’m still trying to reason with my impulses that I should read the trilogy one way or another before succumbing to the Handsome-Uber-Expensive-Boxed-Deluxe-Edition! :D

    1. Yes, if you read the series and love it as much as I do, you’ll definitely get a hankering for the deluxe editions. I started out with the paperbacks, myself, and ended up selling them after I got myself the deluxe set.

      :D Actually, when you think about it, 4 beautiful books (at about 2000 pages) for P2995 is not a bad deal. If you time your purchase on a sale (like I did), that’s only P2395!

  17. Because I don’t know who’s Stieg Larsson is. Who is he(?) anyway?

    Sorry, been crawling under a rock down in Middle-Earth and haven’t got the foggiest idea of how Larsson writes. Guess I’ll find out if I win the set in this here ole raffle of yours, milady :)

    1. :D i keep a lot of book lists too, dang: to read in 2011, to read and review, to review, to buy during the next book store sale, to buy when I find in bargain bin, to cover… hahaha!

  18. Because I originally plan to have this as a birthday present for myself this March 1st but I need to cut back the last minute so I could treat my family to dinner. And I think now is the best time to read this phenomenal trilogy before they officially release the US film adaptations. :)

  19. Pingback: On Stieg Larsson
  20. Because 1.) I really admire Lisbeth because I also have a knack for computers. 2.) I also want to be a journalist like Mikael! 3.) I THINK THE BOOKS ARE JUST PLAIN AWESOME and I have just read the 1st one. :D

  21. I haven’t read the series yet and I don’t have the budget to buy the boxed set. :P I hope I win! more giveaways to come!

  22. HI! I’ve actually heard a lot of good things about this series (I’ve actually started reading the first book). My gf mentioned in passing that she also wanted to read up on Larson; I was actually thinking (hoping) on winned the boxed set and giving it to her as a post-Valentine gift =p

    Bonne Chance!

  23. Because I need another heroine to look up to..? Honestly, I haven’t read this series so I’m looking forward to finding out what the hype’s all about. ^_^
    And for sure my friends would want me to win because for sure I’ll share these with them (should I win..hehe)

    Nice giveaway, Bloo! ^_^
