Literary Giveaway Hop 9-13th February


This giveaway is now closed


Today is my birthday, and it also happens to be the week of a Literary Giveaway hop so I thought I would share the love by joining in.

I’m making it pretty simple this time. 1 entry each and no ways of getting extra entries (but feel free to follow me, tweet, add me on facebook, comment, whatever!)

The rules are:

1) I’ve listed 25 books below, one which has been published in each year of my life (except 2013, because I haven’t read any books published in 2013 yet) you can choose one of the books from this list to win- I’m giving away one book only.

2) To enter fill in the form, answers are only visible to me and your information will not be used for any purpose other than this giveaway

3) To enter you must live in a country to which The Book Depository offers free delivery.

4) You don’t have to be a blogger to enter, you don’t have to be subscribed to my blog, following me on twitter, liking me on facebook or a fellow participant in the hop- but do feel free to do any of those things!
