Book Blogger Convention Swag Giveaway

Tomorrow, I'm headed to the Book Blogger Convention at the Javits Center here in New York. Several interesting panels, some authors and publicists, and a bunch of people who know their way around a blog.

I know a lot of book bloggers out there would like to go and can't make it. Well, I can't do anything about that, but I can give you a little piece of the action: the swag.

Here's what I am going to do: I'm going to send my share of swag to one book blogger out there. And the list of sponsors looks pretty tasty.

No tricks, no required follows or retweets or anything (though if you did, more people will hear about it. Though I guess that's bad if you want to win).

Here's how you enter:
Send an email to readingape AT gmail DOT com with a link to your book blog. If you win, I'll ask for your mailing address. That's it!

Two restrictions:
1. You have to have a book blog that's been updated in the past two months.
2. This one's a little more painful: US only. I'm going to be mailing this on my own dime, and the package is likely to have a fair number of books. And I am not made out of money. While I do have some affiliate cash banked from referrals here at The Ape, they probably will just barely cover the domestic postage.


Buy books mentioned in this post (or anything else, actually) using the below links, and The Reading Ape gets a small referral fee to defray our nominal operating costs.


  1. What a super generous offer you are providing all of us who aren't anywhere near the bookish festivities this week! Probably the closest thing to being there (but without the throngs of Harlequin readers! ;) ).

  2. That's an awesome treat for somebody out there and very generous :) Unfortunately, not me as I reside north of the border :( Have fun at BEA!!!

  3. Have fun at BEA and BBCON! You are very generous to do this giveaway! :)

  5. Thanks so much for the giveaway! It's so generous of you!

  6. I wouldn't mind throwing my hat into the ring, but my blogs include book reviews and discussions, but aren't strictly book blogs. Good luck to the rest of you.

  7. Thank you for doing this and I hope you have an awesome time at the book blogger con! Please share some pix if you get a chance. :)

  8. Excellent gesture, Prof!

    Big thanks from us people who can't attend these conventions :)
