Announcement: Literary Giveaway Blog Hop (October 27-31)

Literary Giveaway Blog Hop


THE Giveaway Blog Hop has STARTED

The Literary Giveaway Blog Hop is an event taking place from Saturday October 27th until (and including) Wednesday October 31st. If you’re a book blogger and you’d like 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.

Most giveaway blog hops seem to be directed towards young adult and romance audiences. Those hops are not so ideal if you want to give away more literary books (but if you’re interested, I Am A Reader Not A Writer runs frequent blog hops).

This will be the sixth Literary Giveaway Blog Hop (there are 3 per year). So far, it’s been a great success, with between 30 and 70 participating blogs every time. It’s time for the next one and I hope you’ll join in. 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. 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 (for instance, to amazon or bookdepository), 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. Quality thrillers, poetry and non-fiction are fine, as are contemporary fiction, literary fiction and any other genres not in the categories above. If in doubt, please ask!

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. Offering a book via is a good way to make your giveaway world-wide (although not all countries are available) as it offers free postage.

Last day for signing up is October 24th. Only sign up if you intend to have a giveaway post up on your blog on October 27th. I will send you an email with more information and the full linky list on October 25th.

    I really want to join again this time and even have it on my calendar but I don’t think it will work with me being out of town starting the 20th. I could draft my post ahead of time but since I’ll be out of the country I’m not sure I’d be able to edit it include the updated table of participants. I don’t get back home until the night of the 28th. :-/

    • Leeswammes says:

      Trish, where there is a will… It would be OK to leave out the list of participants and refer to the post on my blog ( for people to hop to the other participants. That way, you wouldn’t have an outdated list. Would that work for you? It would be great to have you join in!

      • Trish says:

        If that’s OK with you… I loved participating in June and met so many fun bloggers doing so. When I get back into town I would be happy to update the post with the list or at least the perma-link.

  9. Am I correct we don’t need to post about this at all until 10/24? Just making sure I have this correct. Cool idea, by the way.

    • Leeswammes says:

      Thanks Lisa, glad to see you’re joining in. You will be getting an email with information from me on the 25th and you should post your giveaway post at the start of October 27th – at midnight in New York or the equivalent time where you are. But I’ll let you know the details in the email!

      Of course you can put the button on your blog so more people find out about it, or you can even write a post announcing the giveaway in advance. But the actual giveaway post (with the book/item you’re giving away) should not be published before the 27th.

  10. Hello! I have been having a think and have decided that instead of just offering the books to people within Europe, I’d really like to offer them worldwide. I’ll probably use bookdepository so it will cover most countries but thought I would let you know.

    Really looking forward to the upcoming blog hop1 🙂
