Literary Blog Hop: Giveaways Galore!

Today marks the first day of the Literary Giveaway Blog Hop sponsored by Leeswamme’s Blog. For the next few days (through June 29th) readers can hop around the blog-o-sphere and enter giveaways for book related items.

Check out the links here.

I am trying really hard these days to give away books which I either have doubles of, or those which I will probably not read.

Today I am offering FIVE lucky people the chance to win books…and the rules are pretty simple:

  • US postal addresses only please – I wish I could offer an international give…but because I am giving away five books, I cannot afford the postage to do so.
  • Check out the books below, then fill out the giveaway form, indicating your top three choices. If you win, I will do my best to make sure you get one of your top three.
  • Make sure to fill out ALL parts of the form which are starred (*) or your entry will not count.
  • ONE entry per person.
  • The contest is open through June 29th at 5:00 pm PST at which time I will randomly select five winners using
  • I’ll announce the winners no later than July 1st and will also send them an email.

Here are the books (follow links to learn more about each book):

Collection of THREE brand new books edited by Simon Van Booy (nonfiction)

Across the Endless River by Thad Carhart (brand new, trade paperback, historical fiction)

Beatrice and Virgil by Yann Martel (unread Advance Readers Edition, literary fiction)

A Woman in Jerusalem by A. B. Yehoshua (brand new, hardcover, literary fiction)

  1. I’d love to win any of these books. Thank you for a wonderful giveaway!

    My mother has been sick and I never got around to signing up to participate in the Literary Giveaway Blog Hop. But I’ve started a monthly giveaway on my blog and I’ve got a June Giveaway going on this month at my blog, and I’d love to invite you to stop by and throw your name in the hat for Anna and the French Kiss! It’s a US giveaway only this month, but next month, I’ll be offering an international giveaway for a $25 Amazon card!

  2. What a great giveaway! Thanks so much for hosting it and for choosing such great books to offer to us!

  3. Although not eligible thought I’d pop over & extend an invitation to visit The Parrish Lantern to share some poetry.

    Nice selection. Thanks for offering the giveaway. I found your blog through the blog hop giveaway. I am currently following you through RSS, and I’m also participating in the blog hop.
