Freedom to Read Giveaway Hop

freedom to read giveaway hop

Welcome to the Freedom to Read Giveaway Hop, hosted by Bookhounds.

This hop celebrates U.S. Independence Day. This year, just like last year, it also celebrates a three-day weekend where we can read as much as we want without having to worry about the alarm clock going off in the morning. At least for those of us whose definition of insomnia is a good book we can’t put down.

To give you a chance to get even more books to keep you up at night, I’m giving away either a $10 Amazon Gift Card or a $10 book from The Book Depository. Happy Fourth of July and Happy Reading!

  1. The fourth of July isn’t a holiday here so it’ll be a work day for me. But I love reading on my free days or doing crafts. Thanks for the chance.

  2. I love to sit in a quieter area near a big lake (e.g., a pier at a smaller park) with a few friends and family members, and watch the various fireworks displays go off all around the lake.

  3. I’m English, so fourth of july isn’t a holiday here but I’d love to see the fireworks one day, from what I’ve heard they’re amazing!

  4. Sleep until it’s over? xD I don’t enjoy all the noise as much as I used to. Also freaks that animals out, which is great.

  5. My family has never really done much. Fireworks are always fun, but my dog is afraid of them.

  6. That is easy; absolutely nothing. We will cook out just simple stuff and eat lots of watermelon for dessert.

  7. So, there’s no 4th of July in Portugal but during other national holidays, I love to watch the fireworks and get together with friends and family πŸ™‚

  8. I enjoy all the fireworks and grilling in our yard with the entire family. There are so many nice sales at most of your stores and they usually have things you are looking for discounted.

  9. I’m from Europe so I don’t celebrate. When it’s national day here in my country I love to watch the military parade though. It’s really cool.

  12. I like to stay home and read. Then when it gets dark I watch the fireworks from my window.

  16. I love setting off sparklers and writing my name in the glittering remnants! It has been a tradition to do this for as long as I can remember πŸ™‚

  17. We enjoy spending the day in the pool, then hanging out inside with the cats to avoid all the idiots lighting off illegal fireworks.

  18. I’m not in the US, but I do enjoy that the stores always get in lots of interesting American foods around this time of year!

  20. I love spending time with my extended family and watching my childrens eyes light up during the fireworks show. They always get so excited.

  21. I love fireworks. The only problem is that I live in the SF Bay Area and July 4th is notoriously foggy. We usually only have a clear night once every couple of years.

  22. It’s a typical working day for us in this part of the world.

    Happy 4th of July, woohoo!!

  32. Might sound silly to some but my favorite thing to do on July 4th is my daughter and I always get a huge bag of cherries and we sit on a blanket with them and watch fireworks. I guess I like it so much because as simple as it is, those cherries have become a big important tradition to her.
