Literary Giveaway Blog Hop - CLOSED

***Congratulations to April the Literate winner of the giveaway!!! Thanks to all who entered! 

 Welcome to the Literary Giveaway Blog Hop!

Between February 8th - 12th Judith over at Leeswammes' Blog will be hosting the Literary Giveaway Blog Hop. There are over 40 different book blogs, all offering one or more giveaways of books or bookish items participating. All books will be literary (non)fiction or something close to that. Follow the links at the bottom of this post to find the other participating blogs. This is my first time participating and I'm quite excited!!!

My Giveaway:

As part of the blog hop my giveaway is The Burgess Boys by Elizabeth Strout. As an avid reader, I tend to be the book depository for my family - when they finish reading a book, they give it to me...therefore, I end up with way more books than I will ever possibly find the time to read. So, you, my readers get to reap the benefits.

To enter (CLOSED):
  • Leave a comment below & be sure to include your email address.
  • Giveaway is open to US residents only.
  • For an extra entry - tweet about the giveaway.
  • You MUST include email address or entry will be invalid.
  • Giveaway will end at midnight EST, February 12th. 
  • I will contact winner and they will have 2 days to respond or I will pick a new winner.
Good luck!!!
