BBAW Giveaway for Readers!!!!

I know that a lot of you are book readers and not book bloggers. You readers are so important to book bloggers that you are included in the Book Blogger Appreciation Week festivities!!!!

Here are the details!

During Book Blogger Appreciation Week, we would like to take time to honor those who do not. You are so special to us and we want to recognize you for all that you do for us. If you are a loyal reader to one or many book blogs but do not blog yourself, this is the contest for you!

To enter, simply fill out the following sentence in 200 words or less and email them to Jennifer at literatehousewife (at) gmail (dot)com:

“I read book blogs because…”

It’s that simple.

All of the entries received by end of the day (EST) on Saturday, September 13 will be considered. Of those entries, the top 10. What happens to the top 10? First, they will be posted on The Literate Housewife Review on Monday, September 15 to help kick off BBAW on my blog. But it gets even better!

Those entries will also be sent to Joshua Henkin, author of Matrimony! Josh has been a great supporter of book clubs and book blogs and I couldn’t be more thrilled that he was ready, willing, and able to help us honor you. He has graciously agreed to read them all and select the first, second and third place winners. The winners will be announced here at noon on Friday, September 19th.

Other than to have your writing be singled out by such a wonderful author, what what are the prizes?

The first place winner will receive a signed copy of the new paperback edition of Matrimony and a book grab bag containing 6 books!
The second place winner will receive a book grab bag containing 4 books!
The third place winner will receive a book grab bag containing 3 books!
How much fun is that? To whet your appetite even more, here is a list of the books you might find in your grab bag if your entry is selected by Josh:

The Lucky One by Nicholas Sparks
The Book of Lies by Brad Meltzer
Supreme Courtship by Christopher Buckley
A Tale Out of Luck by Willie Nelson with Mike Blakely
The Heretic’s Daughter by Kathleen Kent
When Will There Be Good News by Kate Atkinson

What are you waiting for? We love you and we want to hear from you. We also want the opportunity to give back to you for all that you give to us. Your views, comments, Amazon purchases, and well wishes are what keep us going.

I just know you all are able to answer that question and will be winners! I would love it if you cc'd me on your email to Jennifer, but at the very least, I want to know you've sent it in! We need some winners here! Get busy and send that email!

A big thanks to Jennifer at Literate Housewife for hosting this!
