PLEASE NOTE: This giveaway ended on September 5, and winners were announced on September 7. Comments have been closed.
I’ve been blogging here for nearly a year and a half, and have never officially done a giveaway, so I guess I’ll make up for that oversight now. (I’ll also be hosting another one in a few weeks – details to come!)
As I mentioned here, I was a lucky winner of the Hachette Book Group’s Summer Reads Giveaway via Literary Feline, who was one of quite a few book bloggers hosting it this summer. Getting books for free is always lucky, isn’t it? Now I’d like to share some of that luck.
Did you enter the giveaway on someone’s blog and not win? Were you hosting the giveaway, and couldn’t enter? Did you miss it entirely, because you just don’t visit enough book blogs? Well, if you have no objection to re-gifting, here’s your second chance at some summer reading, which of course can be done at any time of the year.
There were 14 books in the giveaway. After looking them all over, a couple will be given to family members, I’ll keep a few for my own reading, and I’m offering the rest of them right here. I’m grouping them by similarity in theme, genre, or author, so when you enter the giveaway, you’ll have to specify which package(s) you want. (Click on the link for info about each book.)
The Monster of Florence, by Douglas Preston (nf, hc)
Miscarriage of Justice, by Justice “Kip” Gayden (f, hc)
(f=fiction, nf=nonfiction, hc=hardcover, pb=paperback)
And I’ll throw in the “book bag,” too, although it may really be a re-usable grocery bag.
Here’s how to enter. You DO NOT have to have a blog of your own to enter, but you DO have to be a US resident (sorry, but since I’m paying the shipping costs I need to restrict that).
- Leave a comment on this post AND state which book bag(s) you’re interested in. You may enter for more than one bag, but can’t win more than one. Please include your e-mail if it’s not readily available on your blog or profile. Even if you don’t have your own blog, you must leave a comment – no e-mail entries will be accepted!
- For TWO additional entries, mention the giveaway in a post on your blog and link back here. (Be sure to let me know you’ve done so!)
- The deadline for entry is Friday, September 5. Winners will be chosen at random, one for each book bag. Winners will be announced here and contacted by e-mail.
- If there are no takers for a book bag, its contents will be donated to the Friends of the Library bookstore.
Well, what are you waiting for? Now’s your (second) chance!
