Let's chat. Do you enter book giveaways?

  1. Sometimes ... the sad truth is my to-read pile is the size of a small mountain and I need to read the books I already have :)

    1. Hi Iola, Before I purchased my first Kindle I used to enter all the book giveaways. Now, I have a large TBR ebook pile. A print giveaway will tempt me, lol. :)

  2. I use to enter all the time but lately I rarely enter unless its for a gift voucher.

    1. Hi Jenny, I think the Gift voucher giveaways are good because of the flexibility. You can put the gift card aside and buy later. :)

  3. I do if it is a book that I want to read - normally it is because it is an author I want to try.

    1. Hi Christine, I agree, the giveaways are a great opportunity to discover new authors and books. :)

  4. I used to a whole lot more than I do nowadays. I've won so many over the years that I've nearly filled my bookshelves to overflowing (with a few I bought here and there). So unless it's a book I really MUST have, I don't.

    I also love frequenting my library on a regular basis or borrowing from my Overdrive library for ebooks to read on my Kindle. I review for many authors so I tend to get books that way or from Netgalley. So really, I have no lack of books to read...and probably won't ever in my lifetime, lol!

    1. Hi Trixi, I hear you, and my ebook TBR list is way too long! I tend to borrow audiobook downloads from the library rather than ebooks or print books because I already have enough books to read, lol. :)

  5. I used to, but these days most are limited to US residents or only offer an e-book for international entrants (even when the book is by an Australian author)(I don't read e-books).
    Confession: Sometimes I did enter as a way to try out a new author - that way I didn't have to buy the book.

    1. Hi Beth, From an author perspective, I like that readers enter giveaways to try new authors. I also think readers pay more attention to print book rather than ebook giveaways.

      When Solo Tu releases on May 29, I’m doing a print book giveaway on the International Christian Fiction Writers blog that’s open to international entrants (as long as Amazon will deliver to their mailing address).
