UK & EU Summer Hop

Welcome to the
UK & EU Summer Hop
(August 1st - August 8th)
hosted by Book Passion for Life and Books for Company

The UK & EU Summer Hop is an idea which came to mind after seeing so many blog hops happening around the world. As we know how it is being counted as international residents ourselves, we know how it is to miss out a lot on the US/CA giveaways. Therefore we feel that it's time to focus on us in UK and Europe. We know that shipping is quite expensive from US to Europe and of course it runs both ways. The thing is that we still do miss out more often than not, so here's our chance being in the spotlight!

As you know I mostly review non fiction on my blog which is the reason why I decided to give away a non fiction book in this giveaway hop. As a lot of people seem to find non fiction, and biographies in particular, rather boring *yawn* I've decided to wet your appetite with some truly fascinating reads that will be worth your while. At least that's what I claim *cough*.

And now ...
... curious about what you can win?

The winner will have the choice between God: A Biography (Jack Miles) or Hungry (Crystal Renn) or may make their case for any Biography/Memoir worth up to € 10,00.
Please note: This giveaway is open Europe-wide, but only for countries TBD offers free shipping to - please check here.

All you have to do is answer the following question and leave your e-mail address with your comment so I may contact you in case you're the winner. To ensure that only people from the UK and Europe enter, please mention your country too!

The question:
Which book would you like to win?
(God: A Biography or Hungry or Biography/Memoir of Choice)

Following my blog is no requirement, but greatly appreciated.
One entry per person.
Open to UK and EU only!!

One winner will be picked through on August 9th and will then be contacted by e-mail as well as announced here on my blog. The winner will have 48 hours to respond and if he/she fails to do so I will draw a new winner.

And now, head on over to the rest of the blog hop participants!
