The Great Book Giveaway Bonanza That Will Last for Like 3 Weeks Cuz I'm Going on Vacation.

Hamlette's book giveaway bonanza is starting today! Yay! Anyway, the giveaway starts today and ends July 4th because I get home July 3rd ;) So here it is! I hope I made some fun entries for y'all! (Yes, I said y'all. No I'm not southern.) I'll be giving away four books: The Hobbit, The Fellowship of the Ring, The Sugar Camp Quilt, and Twice Told Tales. The mandatory entry is to comment which would be your first and second choice books! The giveaway is open too all countries. (If you guys have any tips on the best way to ship, please shoot me a comment or an email :D) Now, on to the books!

I'm linking to the Goodreads page for them all so you can read the "official" synopsis. And none of these are my pictures.

First the Hobbit by J. R. R. Tolkein! (Yes, I have another copy :D) It's relatively new and in great condition! It's about Biblo Baggins's journey with Gandalf to confront Benedict Cumberbatch Smaug. It's a pretty good read, and the only one of these I've read.

Secondly The Fellowship of the Ring by J. R. R. Tolkein! (I also have another copy) It's sorta old I guess, but in pretty good condition: the cover is ripping a little bit. It's the first third of the Lord of the Rings trilogy.

The Sugar Camp Quilt by Jennifer Chiaverini. This is a Christian fiction about a quilt that can lead slaves down the Underground Railroad. It's the seventh in a series.

The Penny Whistle by BJ Hoff. This is a little book (153 pages) that apparently is about a schoolteacher and an irish girl and a flute? I haven't read it as it never really captured my imagination, but it looks good. Like new.

Finally, Twice Told Tales. This is a collection of Short Stories by Nathaniel Hawthorne that I thought I would like better than I did. Some pages are torn and it's kinda old, but still in pretty good condition!

Now with further adieu, the giveaway! I hope you have fun with the entries! Thanks for participating! HERE's the link to all the other participants! Thanks Hamlette!

  1. Ashley, is this world-wide? If yes, I think 'The Penny Whistle' looks absoblumelootely adorable. My second choice would be the sugar camp quilt. :-)
    Thanks a bunch!

  2. I would like The Sugar-Camp Quilt! Second choice would be The Hobbit just so the kids could have their own copy and not spoil mine :-)

  3. My pick would go to the Hobbit or Lord of the Rings :D

  4. First choice- Twice Told Tales
    Second choice- The Hobbit... I already have a copy of it but yours looks nicer so I'm coveting it. ;)

  10. Ooh, good choices! My first choice would be The Hobbit and my second choice would be The Fellowship of the Ring:)

  11. Nice prizes! My first choice is Twice Told Tales, and my second is The Sugar Camp Quilt. As for shipping, media mail is cheapest within the U.S. for books. Outside of the U.S., I don't really know; I just ask the helpful USPS people when I go in and they pick the cheapest way for what I'm shipping internationally.

  12. Aw, The Penny Whistle is a super sweet and sad Christian tale. It is one of my best friend's all-time favorites! My picks would be 1. Twice-Told Tales (because I love Nathaniel Hawthorne) and 2. The Penny Whistle.
