Summer GiveAway Hop

My First GiveAway!  I am quite excited!  I hope all of you are enjoying the 'Hop'!  I know what I will be doing in my down time... when I can grab a few minutes here and there!

Prize #1 Market/Book Bag

This hand-crocheted Market Bag would be Perfect to take to the Library to pick up those new books to read!  Made out of 100% Cotton yarn (with a few animal hairs accidentally crocheted in), it has a sturdy bottom and mesh sides with nice handles.
Approximately 11" x 14" - chair not included!
This Prize is for those who are NOT perfectionists, 
and who have NO dog or cat allergies!

Prize #2 - The Wizard, The Witch and Two Girls from Jersey
A Fun YA book where two girls who couldn't be more opposite get stuck in a fantasy story.  This book has been gently used.

Prize #3 - Peacock Pride & Prejudice Tote
Brought back from England's Jane Austen Centre in Bath!

My giveaway will be quite simple.  I have a few items to give away, and all you need to do is Comment!  Comment on the site, if you'd like (hopefully you can stay a while and check it out!).  Comment on your favorite book (if you look at my GoodReads pile, I am ALWAYS adding to it), as I am always looking for something new to try.  Maybe you have a comment on a story I wrote, or a comment on how to Complete some of my Challenges (psst... I could use some help with my 2011 Challenge... or if you have a great Historical to recommend to help me with my Addiction).

As I mentioned, this one is simple.  Please comment (on whatever) and let me know which Prize you would prefer.  Like many others, I will let a randomizer choose (and, NO, it won't be our cat... he is way too indifferent for that!) the lucky winners!  Make sure I have a current e-mail, so I can contact you.  Basic rules apply...if you don't respond within 72 hours, I will choose another lucky soul in your place!

This Blog Hop was started by:

Have fun Hoppin' Along.  Most importantly....Enjoy what's left of Summer!

  1. Wow, this sounds awesome :)

    Great giveaway // hop!

    I'm hosting an Ellen Hopkins one of my site now, if you want to check it out.

  2. This sounds like a nice giveaway. I think the bag is cute. Pet hair doesn't bother me! I think everything I own is covered in it anyway with all these critters running around.

  3. Thanks for the giveaway!

    Like the commenter above me, pet hair does not faze me at all. I have a white cat, so you can imagine ahahah!


  4. Ah, fun stuff! I would like to win prize #2 or 3! Thanks!

  13. I would love to be entered for prize three. I would recommend a book, but I haven't really read much lately.

  14. I'm a new follower and I liked your facebook page. I would love to win the P&P peacock bag. I am sorta obsessed with peacocks! Hmm...I just read the Paradise Prophecy, it's action adventure, but it had a lot of history in it that I thought was interesting.

  15. I'm a new follower and I like all the prizes. I can't pick which one I prefer! Thanks for the chance to win.

  16. Thank you for the giveaway! I would be thrilled with any of the prizes.

    Historical fiction suggestions:
    "1632" by Eric Flint and more in that series- WV town transported to Germany in 1632, interesting approach to people of the future stuck in a less than ideal time.

    "To Say Nothing of the Dog" by Connie Willis. another time travel story that is set mostly in Victorian era and is quite funny.

    Confessions of a Jane Austen Addict by Reigler. A contemporary Jane Austen fan wakes to find herself occupying a Regency era woman's body.
