Giveaway – Diary Of A Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules

This giveaway is closed. Congratulations to the winner, #127 Tia!

Diary Of A Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules opened in theaters last weekend. Despite it’s lack of magic, superheroes, or vampires, reviews are calling it funny and charming. In this sequel, “wimpy” Greg and his older brother – and chief tormentor – Rodrick are forced to bond by their parents, with hilarious results.

To celebrate the release, Twentieth Century Fox wants to give one lucky Table for Five reader a fantastic Wimpy Kid Prize Pack worth $79.00!  One winner will be chosen to receive the Cheese Touch board game, Zoo Wee Mama Card Game, Wimpy Kid Action Figure Set, a 200-piece puzzle, and Diary of a Wimpy Kid UNO!

Here’s a clip from the movie (it says Trailer in the title but it’s not the trailer, hmm):

For fans of the books and the movies, here’s how to engage with Wimpy Kid online!

Background Story:

When I started doing product reviews and giveaways, I was running BlogHer Ads. Their terms of service said that blogs running their ads couldn’t have other sponsors, so they suggested creating a separate product review blog, which is what I did. 

Soon after that though, I decided to stop running BlogHer Ads, which opened Table for Five back up for reviews and giveaways. For over two years, I posted product reviews and hosted giveaways on TWO blogs.  I juggled twice the amount of products, twice the emails, twice the scheduling.  It wasn’t long before I was, well, driving myself insane.

At the end of last month, for both personal and professional reasons, I announced that I was no longer going to post reviews or giveaways on this blog. I deleted the Reviews & Giveaways Info page, and instead put a link at the top in the navigation bar called “my reviews and giveaways blog” that links directly to MomReviews.

From now on, all emails sent to my address that have anything to do with a review or giveaway will get a reply with a link to MomReviews.  PR firms with whom I’ve established a long-term relationship that request something appear here on Table for Five will most likely have their request honored, because ultimately, what I post here is up to me.

I just wanted all of you to know.

The 39 Clues Autographed Books Giveaway

If you have an 8-12 year old child, chances are you have already heard about The 39 Clues, the thrilling book series from Scholastic. Combining books, collectible cards, and an online game, The 39 Clues takes readers on dazzling adventures around the world, while teaching them about historical figures at the same time!  I first learned about the books at a Scholastic Book Fair, when I thumbed through Book #1 while waiting for my boys to make their selections. By the time they had picked out the books they wanted to buy, I knew I was going to buy The 39 Clues Book #1 for myself!

A video has just surfaced that shows reporter William Michaels in an exclusive interview with Gordon Korman, author of  Book 2 and the newly released Book 8: The Emperor’s Code. Gordon reveals extraordinary information: There are vital hints concealed in the artwork on the cover of Book 8 that could expose the location of the next Clue! Examine the artwork carefully, and your family could find out where the Book 8 Clue is hidden! Watch it now:

Scholastic is also running a sweepstakes and giving away cash prizes to readers of the books!  Enter the codes on the cards that come with each book and you could win cash prizes or even a family trip to the destination of your choice – Bahamas, Boston, Moscow, Paris, Tokyo, or Venice!! Learn more at The 39 Clues Family Adventure Sweepstakes.

GIVEAWAY: Two winners will each receive The 39 Clues books 1 and 2, and book 2 will be autographed!
