The Literary Giveaway Blog Hop Starts Today

Literary Giveaway Blog Hop

Literary Giveaway Blog Hop

It’s that time of the year again. Yep, bloghop time.

This is a blog hop for literary books hosted by Judith, and with about 50 bloggers offering to give away their favorite literary fiction reads.

As usual, I will be giving away two recent favorites. My book options are:

  • Sense of an Ending – Julian Barnes (see my posts here and here)
  • On Chesil Beach – Ian McEwan (review here)

I read both these books in the hopes of making a dent in my Man Booker reading project and I loved both of them. I don’t have the heart to part from these books, and so the winner of the giveaway is going to get a new copy either from The Book Depository or Amazon, whichever makes more sense depending on pricing and shipping.

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.

Just leave a comment on my blog letting me know which book you would like to read. I will select 2 winners using a random number generator on Thursday Nov 1st. 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 right up your alley.

    ORIGINS – Keorapetse Kgositsile

    deep in your cheeks
    your specific laughter owns
    all things south of the ghosts
    we once were. straight ahead

    the memory beckons from the future
    you and I a tribe of colours
    this song that dance
    godlike rhythms to birth
    footsteps of memory
    the very soul aspires to.

    Songs of origins songs of constant beginnings
    what is this thing called

  • Please count me in for Sense of an Ending, sounds great. Thanks!

    Please and thank you, I’d love to enter! Discovered your blog through the giveaway list from leeswammes and now following you on the Google Reader! I’d appreciate being entered for the Barnes – have already got and read On Chesil Beach and was completely undone by it, but I suppose hoarding additional copies of it would not be any kind of appropriate homage to its accomplishments! Thank you!
