[TSS] Big List of Book Giveaways – Aug 9 Edition

“I’m late, I’m late, for a very important date,” said the White Rabbit. Oh wait, not the White Rabbit – it’s me saying “I’m late!” Sorry I’m posting this list a little later than usual. We went to visit someone up at their cottage yesterday, and we enjoyed ourselves much too thoroughly; we ended up coming home later than expected, and I was too tired to do anything other than watch a movie with my family and then feverishly read more of In the Woods, by Tana French.

This giveaways round-up post is a regular feature here at MsBookish so if you’re holding a book giveaway, let me know and I’ll include your giveaway in my next giveaways round-up post. I know I mentioned in previous posts that you can also let me know via Twitter, but I’m finding it easier to receive the information by email. Also, I will not be posting a Big List of Book Giveaways edition next Sunday (I will be in Flushing, New York, attending my cousin’s reception that weekend. Yes, I know – not my idea of an ideal weekend get-away. It involves a nine hour drive there and back but he’s my cousin, I missed his wedding in Hawaii, and I’m actually looking forward to seeing all my relatives), so the next list will be posted on August 23; I will not be able to include your giveaway unless the contest end date is on or after August 23.

To everyone who emailed me their giveaways information, thank you very much; I didn’t have the time to reply to everyone, but your emails are much appreciated.

I’ve made a change to the way I’m listing the giveaways. In addition to listing giveaways by genre, I’ve decided to group all giveaways of a particular book together. This does have the effect of making the list look smaller (it’s not, though), but it also makes it easier for readers who might not be interested in that particular book. And for readers who would love to win the book, you can enter all the contests for it quickly and easily.

And many thanks to January Magazine – they actually took the time to count the number of giveaways in last week’s Big List of Book Giveaways post, and I discovered there were over 100 giveaways in that post! I was very surprised by this. Even though I compile this list weekly, even I didn’t know there were so many book giveaways out there!
