In honor of BBAW - Giveaway!

In honor of Book Blogger Appreciation Week I thought I'd host a little giveaway! I've been sadly MIA from BBAW and blogging in general due to ongoing personal stuff. But hopefully everything is getting better and onward!

Since we are all trying to cram as much summer into the next few days or weeks (at least in this hemisphere), I thought I'd do a summery giveaway.

I have two Elin Hilderbrand novel, Barefoot (paperback) and A Summer Affair (hardcover).

I just don't think these types of novels are my type of books but they might be yours.

To enter, please leave a comment telling me:

1) If you've heard of BBAW. If you have, what is your favorite thing about it?

2) If you haven't, check out the website and tell me what you think.
Please leave me some way to get a hold of you (email, website, etc.). Again this contest is open world-wide and ends next Friday, September 25th. Good luck!

P.S. Do you think the cover artist has a foot fetish? Or maybe just feet in sand fetish?


  1. Doesn't everyone have a feet-in-sand fetish?

  2. It was a great chance to get all involved in the Book Blogger communit. I enjoyed it. Wish I had more time for involvement


  3. I enjoyed finding new blogs and meeting other bloggers. It's cool that people are so warm and welcoming.

  13. I found this blog - and a few others - through BBAW so yes, I've heard of it. :) It's hard to pick my one favourite thing about it. I liked a lot of the giveaways, cos I'm materialistic :P but I also really liked finding a lot of new blogs, and being able to vote on blogs I like to help get them some more recognition. I also liked browsing the nominations and shortlists for blog awards to find new blogs....

    Thanks for making this giveaway worldwide!

    ...and yes, probably a feet-in-sand fetish. ;)

  14. Amanda, don't enter me in the giveaway. I just wanted to say thani-you for signing up on Friday Contest Central. It's a new feature I'm trying to get off the ground. I hope it will prove beneficial to those hosting giveaways and those looking to enter them.

    I like that BBAW introduces us to so many new bloggers.
