Midwinter’s Eve Giveaway Hop

midwinters eve giveaway hop 2015

Welcome to the 2015 Midwinter’s Eve Giveaway Hop, hosted by I Am a Reader, Not a Writer and Bookhounds.

Today is the shortest day of the year in the Northern hemisphere. And it’s also a Monday. Talk about a depressing combination!

But this coming Friday is Christmas, so a lot of people will have a long weekend next weekend, whether they celebrate the holiday or not. That’s something to look forward to.

And speaking of looking forward, starting tomorrow the days will begin getting longer again, just a little bit at a time. The very short days and long nights in January, especially after all the hustle and bustle of the holidays, made January (and February) particularly difficult when we lived in Anchorage. I usually tell people that we left because three Januarys was my limit. Five hours of daylight is just not enough.

But for those planning to read the long nights away, this bloghop gives away oodles of bookish prizes.

For my part, I’m giving away either a $10 Gift Card or a $10 Book to the lucky winner. This is an international giveaway, the books can be sent anywhere that Book Depository ships. Just fill out the rafflecopter below for your chance to win.

  1. i like to read in from of the fire with a good cup of tea but this year isn’t good for that as it’s 15°c ( really not normal and way too hot)

  2. Nothing comes close to sitting in front of a fire with my dog, sipping on some wine and reflecting on the past year. Share your ups and downs, exchange resolutions with one another and try to help each other persevere in the year ahead. Start the New Year right…

  3. We don’t have much of a winter down south where I’m at. But if it does get cold I cuddle up to my husband and stick my feet under him to stay warm. And I usually have a book too.
