Literary Giveaway Blog Hop


The Literary Giveaway Blog Hop: Is a hop hosted by Leeswammes. Between October 15th and October 19th, you can hop to over 50 different book blogs, all offering one or more giveaways of books or bookish items. Follow the links in my left side bar to find the other participating blogs.


My Giveaway: I will be having one winner: I am offering (1) $20 Amazon gift card for U.S. residents or $20 in purchases from The Book Depository for an international winner. But there will only be one winner. I figured I'd let you choose what you want to read and buy this go around.


Rules:
You must be a follower of my blog, either by GFC, RSS or Email.
You must fill out the rafflecopter form to enter.
You must be atleast 13 years of age to enter. 
If you live internationally, please make sure the Book Depository delivers to your location.
You can earn more entries for a better chance at winning, but they are optional.


That's it! Good Luck and don't forget to stop by the other blogs for lots of other prizes being given away. Look in my left sidebar for a list of other blogs participating.

  7. Thanks for the chance!

    What would I buy? Well, I recently created a wish list with one book from each author on the "Top 100 Writers of All Time" list - so I would probably by something from that list, from an author I haven't yet read. My goal is to read all 100 authors someday.
