It's a HOP!! Or perhaps here at Drunk Writers, a stumble?

gifting books giveaway hop

#XmasGIVEAWAY

 

Gifting Books Christmas hop was organized by Reading Romances!

The best books I've ever given or received? That's a tough one, we're a big book giving family. My husband is awesome with the cookbooks, the big fancy ones with pictures of food no one in my family will actually eat. My brother is a genius in the bargain bin and picked up one of my favorite books of all time: Brady Udall's genius book of short stories - Letting Loose The Hounds. There was the year my mom gave me the Little House On the Prairie Box set - that's a treasured gift. And this year, I'm giving the new Springsteen Biography - to MYSELF! I look forward to hiding from my kids stealing time to read that gem.


What you can win here: A $50 Pre-paid Visa card to help with your holiday shopping and a whole whack of books

Number of winners:One grand prize winner (The Visa card) and two winners of the whack of books

Open to US and Canada and winners will be chosen Monday Dec 24 and notified through this blog:

My favorite gifts are gift cards for books! My husband tried to actually buy me books but after a few years of him missing the mark totally, he now just gets me a gift card to pick my one.

I received a $200 shopping spree when I was 10 yrs old to buy gifts for my family it was the most awesome thing that I have ever got for Christmas because it allowed me to give back to my family. It was a very humbling experience and I think it made me a better person for having that opportunity.

My favorite gift was my e-reader a couple of years ago. I had been eyeing the kindle but hadn't yet committed. My mom overheard me talking to my sister's friend about her kindle, discussing the pros and cons. Well, that year she got me a Sony E-reader. Wow, what a surprise. Best. Mom. Ever!

My favorite gifts are always book or gift cards. I am kind of hard to shop for as I am not a materialistic person. Oh and wine or cookies. Those are always appreciated also. I got a HUGE box of Cheryl's cookies this year (if you have never heard of them or had them, you HAVE to try them) and they are absolutely amazing. My most favorite personal gift in a long time!

Thanks so much for being a part of this hop and for the amazing giveaway.

Happy Holidays,

I love receiving & giving books as gifts. I think my favorite, was the one I gave my Mom for Christmas a few years ago. I work/volunteer at a school & a co-worker had this book displayed on her shelf. It was called "Winter's Gift". I read it & the story made me think of my Mom. I cannot remember the author's name, but it was about a horse & it's a picture book. Thanks for the giveaway!

My favorite gifts are usually books. It says a lot about the giver when they know what books your really looking forward to or would enjoy. It makes it personal. Runner-up would be gift card/money to buy books :)

Hi! Happy holidays! :)
My favorite gift was a book my mom got me. The author is one of my top three favorites. Her books are old and hard to get a hold of. There was one of her books that i had and someone stole it. And i couldnt find another copy. The one i did find was over $100 and i cant afford that. My mom hunted and hunted and found the book for me. I adore her! She rocks. I love her! :) Thank you for the awesome giveaway!
