A Sneak Peek at My Next Giveaway...
Normally I trade many of the books I read through Paperback Swap. My membership (available only in the US) has allowed me to sample many authors I might otherwise not get a chance to. However, most of the books on my wish list take a very long time to come my way and I have a ton of credits built up, so I donated most of those credits and began thinking of other ways to share my books.
One of the first thoughts that came to mind was a giveaway. I'm thinking of calling it "My Recommended Shelf Giveaway." Want to see the books on that shelf? I know... silly question!
I thought I'd make the photo nice and big (and face the books in the right direction) so you wouldn't have to squint or turn your head to one side. (Anyone would think I was a pro at this title reading thing!)
There's a variety of books on that shelf, isn't there? Three cozies, two historicals, three police procedurals, two amateur sleuths, and five different countries. Evenly divided between male and female authors. Three of them are signed. Two of them made my Best Reads of 2016 list. Two of them I haven't read, but they come recommended by people I trust. Of the eight that I have read, yes, I would recommend them all.
These are the books that I will be giving away soon. Is one person going to be able to win all ten books? Nope. I want to share the wealth, but I'd love to have some input from all of you.
I'm thinking one book per winner, and I really don't want you to request to be entered in the drawings for all ten. Like I said earlier, there's a variety of books, and I want you to enter the drawings for the books you really, really want to read. Yes, I will be giving more detailed information about each title at the official beginning of this giveaway so you'll be able to make informed choices.
What do you think? What's the maximum number of titles you should be able to try to win? Two? Three? Or just one? And just out of curiosity... what do you think of the selection of mysteries?
Please let me know in the comments here. Also feel free to make observations or ask any other questions you may have. If you have trouble leaving comments on my blog (and I know some of you do), send me an email-- kittlingbooks(at)gmail(dot)com.
I'll take all your input into account, and then it will be time for my biggest giveaway yet! Thanks for your help!

- Hi! I'm addicted to books (especially crime fiction), laughter and traveling off the beaten path. In my free time, when my eyes aren't glued to the printed page, one of them is usually pressed against the viewfinder of my camera. Let's see... books, laughter, travel, photography. Anything else? Oh yeah-- my dream house wouldn't have a kitchen!
