You know how much I love to give books away, so I could barely contain myself when it came to planning my BBAW giveaway! What I've come up with this time is super special: A family pack of books AND a gift certificate!
As book lovers, I often feel that we are part of a larger group of concerned citizens. We love our local independent book shops and do all we can to support them. I was blown away with how many people commented about the closing of Schwartz Book Shop, a family owned bookshop in my city, after 82 years in business. People from all over the world lamented the loss on Twitter. It was very touching. With that said, in addition to the four books in this giveaway, I will also be giving away a $25 gift certificate to a bookshop in your area! (Because of this, I will only be offering this giveaway to US residents. BUT, I also have an international giveaway that will be posting at the BBAW site. I will post the link once it is offered over there.)
Books in the bundle are:
German for Travelers: A Novel in 95 Lessons by Norah Labiner
Tanker War: America's First Conflict With Iran, 1987-1988 by Lee Allen Zatarain
Invisible Lines by Mary Amato (ARC)
Sammy & Sue Go Green Too! by Suzanne Corso
All you have to do is...subscribe to my feed, then post a comment that you did it. That's it! If you are currently a follower, just leave a comment that you would like to be entered in this giveaway.
Contest ends Friday, September 25 at 12am, Central time. I will use Random.org to choose the winner and will announce it on Monday, September 28. Winner must contact me (onlinepublicist [AT] gmail [DOT] com) by September 30, or the prize will go to the next person on the list. Once we make contact, we will choose a bookshop in your area and I will organize the purchase of the gift certificate for you there. **Please note that I extended the dates of this giveaway from what they were originally.**
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful BBAW!
