Orange July 2012 Giveaways

Orange July 2012 giveawaysWhat’s an Orange July without some giveaways! For Orange July, I have more than 20 books to give away, including the entire 2012 Short List. Who’s ready to have some fun?!

Rules and Tips

1. Giveaways are open to all Orange July 2012 participants. You must be signed up on Mr. Linky to be eligible for Orange July prizes. Sign up today!

2. When a book is up for grabs, I will write a blog post about it. In the blog post, you’ll be asked to answer a question or complete a short task. Please comment on the blog if you want to be entered into that day’s drawing. Drawings close at 9pm eastern, unless otherwise noted.

3. Open to all people, no matter where you live.

4. The books I’ve chosen for the giveaways include Orange Prize winners, nominees and books by female authors that I like. It’s entirely subjective.

5. The giveaways are all used books – hardcovers, paperbacks and Advanced Reader Editions.

6. You can win more than one giveaway.

7. Books will be shipped by the beginning of August (at the latest).

8. The best way to keep track of what’s up for grabs is to subscribe to my blog. Look for the big black “Sign Me Up” button on the top right-hand side. I will post links to the giveways on our Facebook page too.
