Literary Giveaway Blog Hop


I am so excited to be participating in the Literary Giveaway Blog Hop, hosted by Judith at Leeswammes' Blog. There are over 50 participants hosting giveaways on their blog between October 15 and October 19. Be sure to hop around and check out all the awesome giveaways!

My Giveaway

Award season is underway in the Canadian literary world and to celebrate I would like to send someone some fabulous Canadian literature. One lucky winner will be able to choose which book they would like me to send them. Here are the choices (click on title to find out more about the book):


A Complicated Kindness by Miriam Toews (bought at library sale)
Life of Pi by Yann Martel
The Last River Child by Lori Ann Bloomfield
The Stone Diaries by Carol Shields
Through Black Spruce by Joseph Boyden (bought at library sale)

Two of the books were bought at a library sale as mentioned. They are still in good condition but are obviously well-loved and do still have the library stickers on them. The other three have been gently used.

The Rules

This giveaway is open worldwide. It is open until 11:59pm on Wednesday October 19. The winner will be announced and contacted the next day. To enter, leave a comment below with your email address. Then take a look around the blog and if you like what you see become a follower and join me on Twitter!

  1. Thanks for the giveaway and for opening it to worldwide entries.

    I have been meaning to read Life of Pi by Yann Martel ever since it won that literary award in the UK but have just never got around to buying it.

    The road to hell ...., you know

    Surprisingly enough, I never realised that the author was Camnadian !

    Thanks.

  11. I can't decide between the black spruce or the river child. So if I win I will leave that up to you.

    I am curious as how you like your affiliation with indigo?

  15. I would like to be counted in for A Complicated Kindness. My reading of Canadian authors has been rather limited though I do favor Ondaatjie (mainly because he is of Sri Lankan origin I think ) and we are all so proud of him!

  50. When I visit a new place, I always go to the local bookstore and ask a knowledgable person the same of a good book written by a native of the place about the place. When I visited Canada some years ago, the knowledgable person at the bookstore could think of nothing to suggest to me. Sadly.

    I need to read more good Canadian literature. I know Carol Shields and I've read Pi. I'd love to know more.

    I wish you'd visit my blog, too. There really should be a better way of visiting blogs than simply following them and hoping to run across good posts. I wish there was.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Thanks for the giveaway! I think The Last River Child looks most interesting - I enjoy both historical fiction and books about rather off-shoot religious sects/communities.

    Life of Pi is one of my all-time favorite books. :)

  54. What a great way to introduce people to Canadian lit! I just read my first Margaret Atwood novel, and I loved Galore by Michael Crummey.

    I think that I'd be most interested to read A Complicated Kindness or Life of Pi.

  55. I've read all of these (GREAT choices!) except The Last River Child.

    The superstition element will probably frustrate me to no end, but the setting in small-town Ontario and the time period will likely overcome that. ;-)
