Back to the Books Giveaway Hop


Can you believe it’s September already? It seems like this year is flying by.

In order to start off the month right, I decided to participate in the Back to the Books Giveaway Hop sponsored by Iamareadernotawriter blog (see that amazing blog here). I know I just did a little one earlier in the week to get my feet wet, but it went so well, I thought I’d try a little bit bigger one.

So here we go.

This blog starts at midnight September 1st and runs until September 7th. There are some amazing prizes on other blogs and here’s what I’m offering for my prize:

A Book Night in a Box

I will ship the winner (U.S. only please. Sorry!) a handmade book blanket, a Ribbon of Darkness novel, and a dessert to eat while reading. A yummy dessert in a box. Of course, this is everything a reader needs---a quiet night curled up with a blanket, some food, and a book, don’t you think?

What do you have to do to win this prize?

Become a follower of this blog. If you are already a follower, please like my facebook page here.

OR

For an additional entry you can twitter about this and link back to my blog.

For another entry you can Facebook about this and link back to my blog.

For another entry you could like my Amazon page here

Be sure to tell me in the comment trail what you've done and if your e-mail isn't available through your profile, I'll need you to leave that, too - I can't tell you if you've won if I can't contact you!



And if you want to see what other prizes are being offered on other blogs, you can go here to see all the participants!


I think it's going to be fun. What are you waiting for? :)

I can't enter as I'm English, I just wanted to congratulate you on a wonderfully original prize :-)

What is a book blanket?

Julie Coulter Bellon said...

Sarah, thanks for the compliment, though. You totally made my day! I loved England when I visited there a few years back.

Melanie, a book blanket is like a lap quilt. Just big enough to snuggle under with your favorite book. :)
