The Literary Giveaway Blog Hop Starts Today

by

This is a blog hop for literary books hosted by Judith with tons of book bloggers participating to give away some of their favorite literary fiction reads.

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

  • Cutting for Stone – Abraham Verghese
  • The Enchantress of Florence – Salman Rushdie (review not yet up, but this is an absolutely enchanting book. Here’s a teaser.

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 February 14th. After contacting the winners, I will announce the winners on my blog.

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.

    Both have great reviews but I’m currently reading Rushdie and would certainly not mind another. Enchantress of Florence is it.

    Hmm, both books sounds really good and I think I would love them both! It would be too hard to have to pick between them. I would have to do rock, paper, scissors to decide so I need just one second here… The Enchantress of Florence! If I had to pick one to read first it would be that one (rock, paper, scissors always works!). Thanks for the giveaway chance 🙂

    I’ve never read Rushdie before, but the little quote in the next post down from this one was so brilliant that I’d have to choose that one! This giveaway is proving to be very bad for my library list… 😉

    Wow, it’s hard to choose between those two books, but I think I’d go with The Enchantress of Florence. I’ve heard wonderful things about it, and Rushdie is one of my boyfriend’s favorite authors.
