Literary GIVEAWAY Blog Hop

I had thought that I would be giving away one of my gently used classics for the Literary Giveaway Blog Hop hosted by Leeswammes' Blog, but after looking through the possibilities, I realized I couldn't part with any of them. Instead, I will be giving away a brand new, Penguin Classics cloth-bound copy of one of my very favorites:



For a chance to win, just leave a comment and a way to contact you if you win.  The giveaway will end June 29 at midnight PST.  I will select a winner the next day.  This is open to anyone who lives in a country that The Book Depository will ship to.  Good luck, and have fun visiting the other blogs who are also hosting giveaways.  (This event officially starts on Saturday, June 25, so not everyone on the list will have their giveaway posts up yet.)

    My mother has been sick and I never got around to signing up to participate in the Literary Giveaway Blog Hop. But I've started a monthly giveaway on my blog and I've got a June Giveaway going on this month at my blog, and I'd love to invite you to stop by and throw your name in the hat for Anna and the French Kiss! It's a US giveaway only this month, but next month, I'll be offering an international giveaway for a $25 Amazon card!
