Back to the Books Giveaway Hop



Hi everyone. It's Back to the Books for the kiddies and as a mom of five I know some parents are looking forward to a little relaxation. So, I am participating in the Back to the Books Giveaway Hop this week, hosted by I Am a Reader Not a Writer and Buried in Books. It will go on from September 1st - 7th.  There are over 300 other bloggers participating as well. So please check them out. The list of the participating blogs is on my left sidebar. My giveaway is open to U.S. residents and International participants. For those new to blog hops, I will give you a few details and answer a few questions you may have.

What is a blog hop giveaway?

Each participating blog host a giveaway and then we link up together allowing our followers to hop easily from one giveaway to another. For followers that means lots of chances to win free books or bookish items.

What am I giving away during the Back to the Books Giveaway Hop?

Glad you asked. I'm giving away two (2)  free book baskets for U.S. residents only. And $25 (U.S. dollars) for one (1) international winner towards purchases at the Book Depository. Please make sure the Book Depository ships to your location.

So that's a total of three winners for my giveaway. Winners will be chosen randomly from Random.org.

Basket Box 1
Included is Whole Truth by David Baldacci
Family by J. California Cooper
Vinegar Hill by A. Manette Ansay
Angela's Ashes by Frank McCourt
A handmade book thong (made by me),
two journals, one notepad, bath fizz balls
 a coffee mug, a scented candle
and the beautiful black and white basket box



 Basket Box 2
Included is Paradise by Toni Morrison,
Playing the Bones by Louise Redd
A Recipe Binder by Paula Deen
A handmade book thong (made by me)

  2. Lol. I like the boxes too. :-) I voted for the literary awards a few days ago. They had some great nominees too. Unfortunately I heard about PM Morris. She was so kind and encouraging, pretty bummed about her passing, she was just on FB the day before. Couldn't believe it.

  62. Hi Lena!

    I bought the novel "Scared Stiff" by Annalise Ryan for my Kindle today (based off of your suggestion on one of your sidebars). I used my vacation day to relax and read my purchase. It rocked! I finished the book in two sittings (had to eat at some point) and I loved it!!

    Ms. Ryan has a new fan. Thank you for suggesting her book on your blog. I LOVE THIS BLOG!!!
