Bookish Gifts

Recently I have been the lucky recipient of three books in the post and thought it was high time I thanked everyone properly!

Through the Literary Blog Hop Giveaway organised by Leeswammes’ Blog, I won two books:

The House of Mirth by Edith Wharton

From Ali at Heavenali


A Fine Balance by Rohinton Mistry

From Debbie over at ExUrbanis

Thank you very much to both Ali and Debbie, and of course to Leeswammes for organising the Literary Blog Hop. The next giveaway is in October and I hope to be taking part. Keep checking back on my blog around then and you may be a lucky winner too! 🙂

I also received a free book from Book OxygenThe Invisible Circus by Jennifer Egan.

They have started a forum called the Inner Circle which will be a forum for publishers to consult about new releases and to find out a little more about readers’ thoughts. You can read more about it and join on their website.

I would also like this opportunity to thank Bundleofbooks who nominated me for the Versatile Blogger Award! Please do have a look at her blog as there are always lots of interesting posts and book reviews. And if you’re interested in finding out more about the Versatile Blogger award have a wee look here. I’m pretty new to blogging so it’s very nice to know that people are interested by what I post on here!

In the spirit of the Versatile Blogger Award I would like to nominate a few of my favourite Versatile Bloggers and will do so on my return from holiday (end of July).

I haven’t had internet of late so please do excuse me for the upcoming barrage of posts. Should keep readers busy for an hour or so!

Jennifer 🙂
