The Literary Give-away blog hop – from Cyprus

Today is the  start of the literary give-away blog hop.  Over 70 bloggers are participating and the organiser is Leeswammes (or Judith).   At the end of her post you will find all the other participants so you can hop from one to the other and try and collect a nice bookshelf full of books.

 If you would like a copy of either, or both, of the following two books that I am giving away, leave your name at the end of this post, and an e-mail address so that I can contact you for your postal address.  Granddaughter and I will pick the names from her hat on our last day of our Cyprus holiday: 29 June.  How’s that?

1. I have a copy of Kate Atkinson‘s Case Histories to give away

2. The second give away is a copy of Margaret Atwood‘s Alias Grace.

Both are new copies, somehow or other I ended up with two. But, then, I like both authors, so they come highly recommended.
