Pay It Forward Giveaway Hop (World-Wide)

THIS POST is a sticky, and will stay on top for the remainder of this event.  Anyone can enter!

Pay it Forward Blog Hop
The Pay It Forward Blog Hop runs from June 23rd until June 30st and is hosted by Roof Beam Reader. All participating blogs are giving away something they love and want others to know about too. The primary goal is to support authors, products, and items we love but which might not be widely known.

If you’re new here: welcome to my blog! I read contemporary fiction, a bit of chick-lit, some thrillers and science fiction, and whatever I can get my hands on. To enter my giveaway you do not have to be a follower, although if you like my blog, please consider following by email or RSS.

My giveaway is via Book Depository so if they deliver to your country, you can enter (check here).

One winner will receive a copy of a book I absolutely loved. It’s Ready Player One by Ernest Cline (cover may vary).

Ready Player One by Ernest Cline

My review of this book is HERE.

This book is about a world in which most people use an online system, OASIS, for their daily living. Wade Watts is 18 years old and spends all his time there. He’s looking for a treasure that has been left behind by the inventor of OASIS.

Through playing old-fashioned computer games and movies, he gets closer to the treasure, but the powerful Sixes, who work in a large team, are on his tail. They will stop at nothing to get to the treasure.

Computer geeks and anyone remembering the 1980s will love this book. But also anyone liking a dystopia-kind of world will enjoy this – and, I know I’m biased but, I think most people who read this book enjoyed it loads! 🙂

To win –

  1. Required: let me know in the comments which recent book is one of your favorites.

  26. Niranjana says:

    I’m feeling the love for Lingering Tide, a collection of stories by Lata Viswanathan. Tiny Canadian press, zero publicity, no buzz that I can see, debut author, but OMG is the book good.

    I’ve never heard of Ready Player One, but it sounds like all kinds of awesome, and i’d love to win a copy.

  27. Evie T. says:

    I am so curious about this book everyone seems to be talkiing about these days!
