Non-Fiction Giveaway Blog Hop Winner

First of all I have to say I am thrilled about how popular this blog hop turned out to be. When Rikki first approached me with the idea she joked that even if it were only the two of us it'd be fun. In the end we were nine bloggers which, considering the whole non-fiction and relatively on-short-notice thing, is pretty amazing.

Of course, just because you're giving something away doesn't mean people will be head over book spine. So, image my joy of having a total of 46 entrants at my stop of this hop (yay, a rhyme), because, as I cannot stress enough, we're talking non-fiction which, sadly, never gets the attention it deserves in a world that's mostly craving fiction. So yes, this left me pretty excited and looking forward to the second round of this blog hop which, if memory serves me right, Rikki's got planned for October.

Last but not least, it's been interesting to see which of the book choices were your favorites. Needless to say I was delighted when my personal favorite of all four books, namely If Walls Could Talk (Lucy Worsley), was the book of choice for almost 50% of all participants.

And now, finally, time to do some announcing ...

The lucky winner of the Non-Fiction Giveaway Blog Hop is
who picked Rabid: A Cultural History of the World's Most Diabolical Virus!

  1. Yes, I was quite thrilled myself. The hop turned out to be very successful considering that non-fiction is not THAT popular, at least not among book bloggers.
    And yes, again, there will definitely be another hop in October.
