Midwinter’s Eve Blog Hop Giveaway!

It’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas giveaways! And here’s a chilly blog hop with lots of cool prizes, all for a few minutes of your time touring a winter wonder-blog-land. So bundle up, pour some hot chocolate, and start hopping or sliding along. You’ll be done before your nose goes numb!

This blog hop, hosted by I Am A Reader, Not A Writer, says no more than 4 entries allowed per person. I’m so happy Rafflecopter opened to the public, I could fly!

What am I offering besides a look at the Earth in twilight? How about Breaking Dawn in hardback? Unbelievable to devoted Bella and Edward fans, but true, my last two giveaway winners chose sets of my paperbacks, and not a vampire among them. So the used hardbacks are all still available, whether Breaking Dawn, Inkspell, or perhaps a Harry Potter, that’s up to the winner, available for US only. A Book Depository option is available for international followers, up to $10 US.

If my blog happens to go over 300 followers during the giveaway, there will be another drawing for a medium priority box filled with the winner’s choice of books and chocolate. This winner gets 2nd choice of hardback and first on paperbacks unless the first winner chooses only paperbacks. You get the idea, right? Two people can’t choose the same prize. But the second winner gets to choose $10 worth of chocolate to go with their books (plural because a medium priority box will hold more than one book even with chocolate added in). Again, US only, with a $20 Book Depository option for international followers. You see it’s to your advantage to make the 2nd drawing happen, right?

In case I don’t go over 300 followers and you’d really like to win chocolate with your books, you can enter my books and chocolate contest through the tab at the top of my blog. The next drawing is on Jan 11th. Don’t let the possible number of entries scare you. Only 3 are required besides a comment, and you can come back to re-enter every month until you win. Now that’s what I call a win-win giveaway, and it also has a $10 Book Depository option for international followers. 

A US winner of any of my contests can choose paperbacks if he or she wishes. I have about 8 boxes and shelves full. If I see a comment wishing for a particular older book or series, I keep an eye out for it when I go out garage “sailing” or thrift store shopping. Recent winners chose Robert Jordan’s Wheel of Time series, Piers Anthony’s Xanth series, and Kathryn Lasky’s Guardians of Ga’Hoole series. You can see some of the pictures not chosen in November’s Gratitude Giveaways posts, and a couple of the boxes on my chocolate and books contest page.

These four possible entries, only one of which is required, will take no more than a few minutes:

That’s it. As you noticed, comments are not required but welcome.One thing I’m wondering is what children’s, MG or YA fantasy or SF book to read and review before offering for my next giveaway. What’s on your “must read” list and why? If it’s not SF or fantasy, you’ll have to work hard to convince me. Once you’re done, check out all the other giveaways you could ever hope to hop to. I also hope that phrase was as fun to read as it was to write. Happy hoping and hopping!
