 Armchair BEA is for those people who cannot visit Book Expo America but still want to join in the fun. This week, May 26th to 31st, there are celebrations for those who stay at home rather than make it to New York.

Today, Thursday, we’re all giving away books. Go have a look when you’ve finished entering my giveaway.

3. If you’re holding a giveaway for Armchair BEA yourself, leave the link in the comments, and you’ll get one extra entry. Note: only counts if the giveaway is especially for Armchair BEA, not a giveaway that you happen to run at the same time.
