[TSS] Big List of Book Giveaways – Oct 4

Welcome to the final edition of the Big List of Book Giveaways. Beginning next Sunday, this book giveaways post will feature only international book giveaways – that is, book giveaways that anyone, worldwide, can enter.

If you’re looking for a general list of book giveaways, check out Bookworming in the 21st Century, where there’s a Link a Contest Thursday feature every Thursday – if you’re holding a book giveaway, you can pop over and add your link to Mr. Linky, and if you’re looking for a book giveaway in general, there’s a nice long list of book giveaways to check out.

My new worldwide book giveaways list will be the regular Sunday Salon feature here at MsBookish, so if you’re holding a book giveaway on your blog and it’s international, please let me know so that I can include your giveaway in the list.

Now onto this week’s giveaways! As always, I’ve sorted the giveaways according to their genre, and indicated eligibility requirements whenever possible.

  1. I can see why this takes up your whole day! And everyone appreciates the work you have done!

    By the way, I’ve read maybe half of the ones being given away in Mystery/Suspense and can vouch that they would be great choices for the 24-hour Readathon – especially Beat the Reaper. If that doesn’t keep you awake, nothing will!!! :–)
    .-= rhapsodyinbooks´s last blog ..Sunday Salon – Review of “A Fiery Peace in a Cold War” by Neil Sheehan =-.

    • I think I’ll enter the Beat the Reaper giveaways, then, Jill. Hopefully I’ll win a copy! The last book I really wanted (Larsson’s second one) I won two copies :)

  2. Thanks, everyone! I’m pretty excited about finding international book giveaways – I think I might find more new-to-me blogs while I’m doing it, too!

  3. I enter lots of contests and have won as well. Thank you for taking all the trouble to list them out and also whether they are restricted or open to all. This is so helpful as otherwise we overseas readers have to go through all the fine print and finally see that its restricted. The sad part is that some of the best books are restricted but we are grateful for small mercies!!!! Books are prohibitively expensive in my part of the world so these giveaways are
    worth a lot. Thanks once again.
