[TSS] Big List of Book Giveaways – June 14 Edition

Update: I will not be posting the Giveaways List during my vacation – I’d still love to hear from you about any giveaways you’re holding, but the next list will be posted on July 19, so I can only include giveaways ending on or after July 19.

Welcome to the Big List of Book Giveaways, which I post every Sunday in conjunction with The Sunday Salon. Knock wood, but I think I’ve solved the template problem (it turned out to be a conflict with a plugin, and now – hopefully – all is remedied). So I’m able to post this as one truly big list, with both fiction and non-fiction giveaways, instead of having to divide it up into two to three smaller lists!

As always, the giveaways are sorted into genres so that you can see what giveaways correspond to your reading interests. I have included eligibility restrictions, if I see any – sometimes I miss them though, so make sure when entering a giveaway that any restrictions stated won’t rule out your entry.

Even though this list looks large (because fiction and non-fiction are now combined), it’s actually shorter than last week’s. I’m not sure why – either I missed some, or there were just less giveaways out there. Still, enjoy, and good luck!

If you’re on Twitter, I’d love it if you could help spread the word by tweeting about this giveaways list post. There’s a little “TwitThis” button at the end of this post which hopefully should do the trick.

Note: all links open up in a new tab or window, depending on your browser. If I’ve missed your giveaway and it ends between now and next Sunday (June 21), please feel free to post details of your giveaway in the comments to this post, with a link to your giveaway URL (URLs are auto-linked; more than two links, though, will get your comment pegged as spam, so you might want to make separate comments if you have multiple giveaways.) If your giveaway won’t end until after June 21, please let me know and I’ll include your giveaway in my next giveaways round-up post (which will be posted on Sunday, June 21). A huge thanks to everyone who emailed me this past week about their giveaways.
