Freedom to Read Giveaway Hop Sign Ups

Freedom to read 2013

Since I am taking a break this summer Mary from Bookhounds has volunteered to run a few of my regular hops for me.  Please be a bit patient with her since this first one will be a learning experience!

My regular hop rules apply:
Giveaway Hops
What is a giveaway hop?
Simple – Each participating blog hosts a giveaway and then we link up together allowing our followers to hop easily from one giveaway to another.
For followers that means lots of chances to win free books.
For host blogs it means lots of new visitors and followers.
It’s a win-win.
Of course if you host a giveaway on your blog you can also enter all the giveaways on the other blogs.
Co Hosted by I Am A Reader, Not A Writer
July 2nd to 9th
  • You must host a giveaway on your site, you are responsible for obtaining a prize for giveaway and taking care of the shipping charges.
  • You must giveaway something a reader, author or blogger would enjoy.
  • Your giveaway post must include the hop image & linky (or links to the host’s sites if you can’t get the linky to work).
  • Please only 1 mandatory entry – all others must be optional – Keep It Simple! No long lists of things for people to do.
  • Your post must be live by 9:01 A.M EST on July 2nd. (That is 6 A.M.  if you live in California)
  • The giveaway must be specifically for this hop.
  • Your site must be family friendly – no erotica or 18+ sites. Your site & giveaway must be free of steamy images and book covers. If it would embarrass me to have my teenagers see it, it can’t be on your site.
  • It is your responsibility to check the linky on July 2nd to be sure you are still on the linky and that your link is accurate. Please send Mary a direct link to your post when it goes live: BOOKHOUNDS @ HOTMAIL.COM
To sign up to host a giveaway add you blog to the linky. Please include your shipping info in parenthesis following your blog name (US) (US/Can) (INT) – if you don’t include shipping info Mary will assume you are shipping to US only and edit the linky for you.  Email her if you need help.

    Sorry, forgot to add int #83 Book Bunny’s Burrow!

  6. I messed up. Please delete number 177 and I’ll post the correct format. Sorry!

  7. Ack sorry – I just noticed your adult comment. I review mainly YA and NA but I do also review Adult books so you may want to delete me #194 (it won’t let me) and I don’t want to create problems/embarrass anybody!

  8. I would love to win. All of the books seem great. Thank you for the giveaway.

  9. Please add me back onto the Linky
