GIVEAWAY: Follower Love Giveaway Hop

This hop was organized by Kathy at I Am a Reader, Not a Writer.

Over 200 participating blogs are offering a book related giveaway, and we are all linked up together so you can easily hop from one giveaway to another.  The hop runs from Tuesday, February 8th through Sunday, February 13th.

I have 2 great giveaways for you today. There will be 2 winners.

GIVEAWAY #1: Win a book of your choice from The Book Depository (up to a $15 value)! If you should win, you will give me your book selection and mailing address, and I will have the book delivered to you. Please check here to verify that they deliver to your country.

GIVEAWAY #2: Win a LibraryThing lifetime membership ($25 value). If you are unfamiliar with them, here is a little info (from their website):
LibraryThing is an online service to help people catalog their books easily. You can access your catalog from anywhere—even on your mobile phone. Because everyone catalogs together, LibraryThing also connects people with the same books, comes up with suggestions for what to read next, and so forth.

What does it cost?

A free account allows you to catalog up to 200 books. A paid account allows you to catalog any number of books. Paid personal accounts cost $10 for a year or $25 for a lifetime.

What else does LibraryThing do?

LibraryThing is a full-powered cataloging application, searching the Library of Congress, all five national Amazon sites, and more than 690 world libraries. You can edit your information, search and sort it, "tag" books with your own subjects, or use the Library of Congress and Dewey systems to organize your collection.

If you want it, LibraryThing is also an amazing social space, often described as "MySpace for books" or "Facebook for books." You can check out other people's libraries, see who has the most similar library to yours, swap reading suggestions and so forth. LibraryThing also makes book recommendations based on the collective intelligence of the other libraries.

Rules (you knew there had to be some):
  • You must be 18 years or older
  • Open international (where Book Depository delivers. I don't think there are regional limitations on LibraryThing)
  • To enter, just follow this blog and complete the form below designating which giveaway(s) you are interested.
  • For extra entries, follow via Facebook or Networked Blogs, and/or blog about this contest. One extra entry for each. Sidebars are okay.
  • Leave a separate comment for each entry.
  • A maximum of 3 possible entries!
  • Those who don't follow the rules risk being disqualified.
Use this form to enter!
    Deadline is February 13, 2011

    Thanks for stopping by! I hope to see you again!

    Hi... I'm giving away an autographed copy of the supernatural thriller Drowned Sorrow for the Follower Love Giveaway Hop. Drowned Sorrow has been called "the scariest book of the year" and it's the story of a remote village where water has become a supernatural element that can think and kill.
