Blogfest 2012: Giveaway Blog Hop!

BlogFest is a blog run of sorts. A list of participating blogs is provided on the blogsite hosting the BlogFest, each offering a fantastic giveaway for readers to enter. 

Hi, I’m Judith. I read contemporary and literary fiction, historical fiction, dystopia, and sometimes also chick-lit and thrillers. I’d love it if you’d become a follower!

I’m giving away a book via Book Depository, so if they deliver to your country (check HERE) you can enter the giveaway. I’ve chosen 4 books that I loved and one winner can choose one of these 4 books.

The rules:

  1. 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).
  2. Choose one book and in a comment, write the title of your chosen book and your name. Fill out your email address and your blog address where asked.
  3. You can enter the giveaway between September 28th and September 30th. The giveaway ends at midnight EST on September 30th.
  4. Tweet about the giveaway for one extra entry (i.e., maximum of 2 entries per person). Make sure to mention @Leeswammes in your tweet so I can find it back, or in Twitter, click on Expand, then Details and copy the address from the address bar and add it to your comment below. You don’t have to create a separate comment for your tweet.
  5. Note that invalid entries will be removed (follow the instructions in step 2-4 carefully).
  6. The winner needs to answer my email within 3 days, or I’ll announce a new winner.
  7. That’s it! Good luck.

    I’d have to choose Mudbound by Hilary Jordan. I read When She Woke by Hilary last year and it was one of my favorite reads of the year. She’s an incredible writer. I know Mudbound is much different than her dystopian When She Woke, but I’m a huge fan of historical fiction and this has been on my to read list for a while. Thanks so much for the giveaway!
