You Can Be A Winner Too: Book Giveaways

Posted by Simcha 2:35 AM, under | No comments

To my astonishment, I was recently the winner of two different book blog giveaways.
Considering the fact that I haven't won anything since a pink teddy bear, when I was nine years old (and which I still have, see --------->)
I was quite excited and I've now begun entering every contest I can find.

And to help spread the joy, I decided to make a list each week of all the international giveaways that I come across, to help give you the chance to become a winner too (yes, I'm just that kind of person).

As I mentioned above, all the contests I list will be ones which are open world wide, so that anyone may enter them. Since I live in Israel I always get excited to find a good contest in which I can participate, particularly if it's for books.. Although I understand that most bloggers have financial limitations which prevent them from being able to ship books internationally, its still great when some does offer a contest open to everyone.

And finally, thank you to Bitten by Books and Debuts and Reviews for the awesome books I won at your blogs.

Book Chick City is giving away a copy of Bound to Shadows by Keri Arthur, which you can enter by leaving a comment and tweeting or blogging the contest. Contest ends Nov. 12th

Silk and Shadows is hosting Jocelynn Drake who is offering one lucky winner the complete collection of her books, including Unbound anthology, Nightwalker, Dayhunter, and Dawnbreaker. Contest ends Nov. 12th.

The Neverending Shelf is giving one lucky winner a copy of Christine and Ethan Rose's Rowan of the Woods and Witch on the Water. I've never read these books but I've heard good things about them and they look really cute. To enter, leave a comment and receive extra points for following the blog and promoting the contest.
