Reader's Choice - Amish Romance Giveaway

GIVEAWAY


Woohoo! Reader's Choice Week at BestReads is baaaack!

 What is Reader's Choice Week?
 
It's become a popular semi-annual blog event that helps grow my TBR list . Instead of me reading and reviewing books, you get to choose titles you would like to win. Please note each day is genre specific so you can only submit books from that genre on that day. You can offer three suggestions per day but they need to be made in three separate posts. Looking forward to seeing your suggestions and adding to my TBR pile! 
 
How does it work?

 Today it's Amish Romance Giveaway day. To be entered in the draw just leave a comment below, including the title of the book in the Amish Romance genre -- Christian Fiction only please -- that you would like to win.  Important: select only books with a February 2015 or earlier release date. If your name is drawn, I'll send you a copy of that book. Easy Peasy, right? And because I know how hard it is to pick only one book, you can enter this draw three different times with a different title each time. Just make sure each entry is in a different comment.

Remember:

  • Today is Amish Fiction day -- only Amish titles will be included in the draw
  • You can enter up to three different titles BUT they must be done in three different comments. (makes it easier for me to tally)
  • publishing date of books must be February 2015 or earlier.

Please remember to include your email, using AT and DOT instead of @ and . in the address to protect yourself from spammers. Draw will be held and winner announced on Sunday January 18 2013. Offer open to international readers.

    OK, my suggestion is The Matchmaker (Amish Classics #2) by Sarah Price, because it is a retelling of Jane Austen! :)

    I read my first book by her last year and want to read more :)
