Welcome back to Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers...the place to be when you're feeling bookish and the need to read is overpowering. Yes, we love indulging those feelings here. ^_^
Today we are celebrating our love of books, but more specifically, PRINTED BOOKS. Ebooks are fine and dandy, I mean even I indulge in them from time to time and as long as you're reading, who am I to tell you to stop using your preferred format...but there is something different about the reading experience for me when a book is in its physical form. Holding the book, feeling its weight in your hands; the texture of the cover, the smoothness of the page. The beauty of its very presence in your "current reads" stack. Once read, you gain the ability to flip through the pages, scanning passages that captured your heart or remembering characters met and places visited like old friends in a photo album...plus the chance to visit it all again with a quick jaunt over to its new home on yourself bookcase. Ah yes, behold the power of the PRINTED BOOK. *sigh* With that in mind, as soon as I saw this giveaway hop open up, I knew I had to participate.
So, are you ready to hop? Here's the deal...
Printed Books Giveaway Hop
Hosted by I Am A Reader, Not A Writer
February 1st to 7th
Ebooks are becoming more and more popular but there are still many people who prefer printed books.
This hop features only printed books (no ebooks allowed).
I rummaged through both my mind and my personal library as I tried to figure out just what book to give away. I mean, should I go classic or contemporary? Fiction or non? Kids or Adult? So many options, so many great titles that I could include. In the end, I was struck with an idea. Why not celebrate my love of PRINTED BOOKS with a title that's been in print for a considerable length of time and is cherished by many AND a book that celebrates readers and the books they love with a dash of humor? Why not indeed! So, my prize pack was born. Here's the scoop...
There will be ONE winner.
The winner may be US or International.
The winner's home determines the prize.
US winner will receive...
(1) paperback copy of To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
(1) paperback copy of Judging a Book by Its Lover: A Field Guide to the Hearts and Minds of Readers Everywhere by Lauren Leto
...a bookish surprise or two to go along with them. ^_^
