Previously Read - Book Giveaway?

Any interest in some of the book copies I've read?  More often than not they still look new when I'm done with them, maybe a slight crease in the spine at most.  I also have duplicates that have never been read.  I have 4 book cases overflowing with books, and it's past time to share the book love.  While there are some I won't part with, there are tons that I simply must. 

If I get at least 50 positive responses in the comments to this post in the upcoming week, I'll put up the first book.  Please feel free to spread the word!  (the sooner I see those responses, the sooner I can start sharing)

Jen D. - If you 'vote yes' and email me with your mailing address, my copy of Black Dust Mambo could be in your hands to read this weekend.  (one of your comments made me think of doing this, so the book love should start with you and a book that you're interested in!)  I'm hoping you'll enjoy it as much as I did.

Wow Kimberly...thank you so much. I actually read over my name and had to do a double take...lol. I'm sending you an e-mail right now.

And of course I support your previously read book giveaway 110%! I'll post something up on my blog tonight to help get the ball rolling. I don't have many followers but, I think the ones I have will totally be on board.

And thanks again...that totally made my day!

mariska said...

one question, will it open internationally or us/can only ?

as for book eater like me, i will not say no for book giveaways :)

Kimberly Swan said...

I'm so happy to see people already agreeing! Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts!

Hi Mariska - If it's a paperback coming from me then it's world wide. I will try to list it if giveaways from authors or publishers are not. Always feel free to ask me if I've forgotten please! :)

I think that is a great Idea.
Im from Denmark and sometimes it's impossible for me to get the books I want to read, I wish that the library had a larger choice of english books (especially Urban fantasy and Paranormal romance).
