Books for Readers & Readers for Authors ~ It's all about the blog hops and giveaways!

It's the season for gift-giving but also the season for buying books. Lots and lots of books.

If' you're like me and still collect books despite the piles that have taken over your house and the folders that have eaten up most of your hard drive, then you will like this post.

I've been checking out my events at Goodreads and hopping around checking out new authors blogs as well seeing what sequels of my favorite books are coming out. I will be a part of the The Day the Sun Stopped Shining Blog Tour 2011 starting the 26th to the 31st.

I figured I'd gather all the current giveaways for the moment and post them here in case any readers are looking to sign up for some goodies and books.

For folks new to blog hops, hops are linked blogs that all host book giveaways and sometimes more to fit in with the theme of the hop. On the starting day of the event, you can visit the links below to start at one blog and hop around to enter tons and tons of book giveaways. Some may require you to answer a question or follow but it's well worth it for the fun and you may get hooked right away. Authors you can giveaways featuring your books and extra goodies for readers. They will definitely enjoy the chance to win a new addition for their bookshelf. :-)

Above all:

Have fun everyone!

Let the hunts begin!
