Reader's Choice - Historical Fiction

GIVEAWAY


It's Reader's Choice Week at BestReads!



 What is Reader's Choice Week?
 
Back in February I did a Reader's Choice week that proved to be very popular so I thought it was time we had another one. Instead of me reading and reviewing you get to choose books you would like to read. Please note each day is genre specific so you can only submit books from that genre on that day. You can offer three suggestions 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 Historical Romance Giveaway day. To be entered in the draw just leave a comment below, including the title of the book in the Historical Romance genre -- Christian Fiction only please -- that you would like to win.  Important: select only books with an October 2013 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.

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 September 22 2013. Offer open to international readers.

Looking forward to seeing what's on everybody's wishlists!
