BBAW – Giveaway of Tolstoy and the Purple Chair

BBAW 2011

I’m participating in the Book Blogger Appreciation Week. There are Book Blog nominations, giveaways and blog posts as part of the BBAW celebrations.

There are more giveaways on the BBAW giveaway blog: HERE.

In celebration of BBAW, I am running an international giveaway of a book that I think will appeal to many people.

Tolstoy and the Purple Chair by Nina SankovitchTolstoy and the Purple Chair by Nina Sankovitch is a memoir about the author spending one full year reading one book per day.

My copy is an ARC that is gently read.

You can read my review HERE.

If you’d like to win this book, leave your name and blog link in the comments. Sorry, this giveaway is only for book bloggers, as this is Book Blogger Appreciation Week. There is a Literary Giveaway Blog Hop coming up in October that everyone can enter.

You do not have to subscribe to my blog in order to enter. If you like my blog, I would love it if you’d subscribe, though!

I’m sending this book myself so any book blogger in the world can enter.

If you tweet about the giveaway, I’ll give you an extra entry. Leave your tweet link in your comment (your tweet link will be in the address bar when you click on “X seconds ago” under your tweet. If you can’t work it out just leave your Twitter name and I’ll find it back).

Small print:

  1. You can enter the giveaway until the end of Friday, September 16th. I will draw a winner when I open my computer on Saturday (European time).
  2. I will notify the winner by email. The winner needs to answer my email within 3 days, or I’ll announce a new winner.
  3. I cannot be held responsible for books going missing in the post. However, I’d appreciate if the winner could let me know the book arrived safely.
Good luck and happy BBAW!
