The Literary Giveaway Blog Hop Starts Here!

Literary Giveaway Blog Hop


Welcome to the Literary Giveaway Blog Hop!

The Literary Giveaway Blog Hop is hosted by me, Leeswammes. Between now and Wednesday, October 19th, you can hop to over 50 different book blogs, all offering one or more giveaways of books or bookish items. All books are literary (non)fiction or something close to that. Follow the links at the bottom of this post to find the other participating blogs.

My Giveaway

As part of the blog hop I will be giving away a paperback copy of this book: When God Was a Rabbit by Sarah Winman. The book has been gently read. The giveaway is open worldwide.

When God Was a Rabbit by Sarah WinmanWhen God Was a Rabbit by Sarah Winman

Description (from the publisher): “Spanning four decades, from 1968 onwards, this is the story of a fabulous but flawed family and the slew of ordinary and extraordinary incidents that shape their everyday lives. It is a story about childhood and growing up, loss of innocence, eccentricity, familial ties and friendships, love and life. Stripped down to its bare bones, it’s about the unbreakable bond between a brother and sister.”

My review of the book is HERE.

The rules:

  1. Anyone can enter. You do not need to have a blog.
  2. I’m sending out the book myself so the only thing you need is a post-office recognised address anywhere in the world, where you can receive packages.
  3. You do not have to be a follower or become a follower, although if you like my blog I hope you will! You can follow by email or by RSS (see buttons in the side bar on the right).
  4. Fill out the form below.
  5. You can enter the giveaway until Wednesday, October 19th. I will close the giveaway when I turn on my computer on October 20th (Netherlands time).
  6. Note that double or invalid entries will be removed.
  7. I will notify the winner by email. The winner needs to answer my email within 3 days, or I’ll announce a new winner.
  8. That’s it! Good luck and thanks for playing.

Fill out the FORM HERE to enter.

    Thank you so much for this great giveaway:) This title recently received “The Man Boeke Prize” (Judge’s Choice) through a national book store I regularly buy from, so I’ve been wanting to read it ever since.

    Thanks for the chance:)

    Thanks so much for the giveaway

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  23. I love the idea of this literary blog hop. I don’t need any more books, thank you, but I think I will stop by the blogs of your friends and see what others are giving away.

    I’m actually giving away a very non-literary (but lovely, in its own way) book, Matched, this month, and I’d love to have you stop by and sign up to win it. If that doesn’t strike you as worthy of a stop-by, I’d ask you to come over and see what you think of my blog post today, a second look at Maira Kalman’s Principles of Uncertainty. I always keep coffee and chocolates for the very reluctant.

  24. Lucybird says:

    Thanks for doing this again 🙂

    Great book to giveaway, shame I’ve already got it!
