Literary Giveaway Blog Hop (Feb. 18-22)

The awesome Judith is once again coordinating a Literary Giveaway Blog Hop.  I've participated in a few of these Literary Giveaways previously, and it was such fun finding new book blogs in the process.  This event is taking place from Saturday February 18th until (and including) Wednesday February 22nd. If you’ve been wanting to give away a book to your readers, maybe to show your appreciation or because you have a special celebration, this is your chance to join up with others.

More details:
  • This event is an opportunity to give away prizes and get more traffic to your blog. You will run your own giveaway, but it will be linked up to all other participants via a links list (which I will give you just before the event). That way, not just your readers, but also the readers from the other participating blogs will stop by your blog.
  • You can offer one or more books, a gift voucher, or anything else related to books and reading. There is no minimum or maximum value that your prize should have.
  • The only restriction is that if you’re giving away a book, that it should have some literary merit. It does not have to be the most difficult classic ever, but please no romance, urban fiction or YA. Thrillers, poetry and non-fiction are fine, as are contemporary fiction, literary fiction and any other genres not in the categories above.
  • Further information on the prizes: a book can be new or “gently read”. Your giveaway can be just for your country, for your continent, or word-wide.
Last day for signing up is February 15th. Only sign up if you intend to have a giveaway post up on your blog on February 18th.

I'm thinking about giving away something similar to that which was well received last time:

Watch for more details


  1. This is a cool idea, and a really great way to get new readers exposed to your blog, so I wish you a lot of success with it. I will have to check out some of the blogs that are being hosted in this event!

  2. I'm a follower now! I'd like to win The Sisters Brothers or The Night Circus. Enjoy the Hop!

  3. This is a very generous giveaway, thank you Diane! I would love The Sense of an Ending by Julian Barnes.
