The Literary Giveaway Blog Hop Starts This Saturday

The Literary Blog hop

The Literary Blog hop

I am really excited for this literary blog hop hosted by Judith. The giveaway is meant only for literary reads and since the only literary book I have read this year is The Canterbury Tales, which I don’t think is going to be a popular choice, I have decided to give away two of my favorite Asian literary reads.

True, these books are both oldies, but I assure you they are definitely goodies. And I hope you are interested.

Rules of the Giveaway

There are no rules. The giveaway is international. Extra points will be awarded to those who choose to follow my blog or my twitter, but following is not mandatory.

I will select 2 winners using a random number generator on Thursday June 28th. After contacting the winners, I will announce the winners on my blog by next weekend.

If these books don’t rock your boat, try some of the other giveaways listed here…you are sure to find something exciting.

    My 17 year old daughter (who is attending college) read A Thousand Splendid Suns this year, and she said it was amazing. I felt bad because I had not had a chance to read it, and thus could not discuss the book with her when she was finished. I would love the chance to read and discuss this book.
    Thanks so much. Oh, nd I am an email follower!

  • Theresa N

    I follow your blog through my mail id: amrita(dot)r(dot)kanjilal(at)gmail(dot)com

  • Amy

    My choice would be A Thousand Splendid Suns if I win your giveaway.
    Thank you for this great choice of books.


  • Hira Hasnain (Enamored Soul)

    I have read “The White Tiger” by Aravind Adiga, and I think it is an ABSOLUTELY beautiful book, despite the subject being such a dark one. I think its beauty lies in the fact that it is so refreshingly real, and hones in on how desperation can become a driving force some people. If you liked that one, I’d definitely recommend “Behind the Beautiful Forevers” by Katherine Boo. It is an absolutely brilliant non-fiction book that reads like a fiction novel – a book so well written, I became fully immersed in it. It speaks of the resilience of the people of the slums of Mumbai, despite the adversities that they face on every day basis!

    I am NOT entering the giveaway, because I’ve read both these amazing books, and love them both. But what great choices, for a giveaway! 😀 Thank you for your generosity, and for being part of the Literary Giveaway Hop.

    ON THE DEATH OF A SUNDAY PAINTER – Arvind Krishna Mehrotra

    He smoked a cherry-wood pipe, knew all about cannas,
    And deplored our lack of a genuine fast bowler.
    My uncle called his wife Soft Hands.
    Once in 1936 he sat in his Holland Hall drawing-room
    Reading Ulysses when a student walked in.
    Years later I read him an essay on D.H. Lawrence
    And the Imagists; he listened,
    Then spoke of Lord Clive, the travels of Charles M. Doughty,
    “My dear young fellow . . . ”
    I followed the truck on my bicycle
    And left early; his friends sat all afternoon
    In the portico of a nearby house.

  • Two books I still haven’t read, oops! I’m fairly sure I have A THOUSAND SPLENDID SUNS somewhere, but I definitely haven’t got THE WHITE TIGER. Thanks very much – and enjoy the hop!
