My free reading challenge: giveaways

My endeavour to spend no money on books for myself until Christmas continues…

This week I found another fabulous source of free books: giveaways. I entered a contest run by several YA authors I’ve heard of but haven’t yet read, and as well as being in the draw to win a kindle (I think that’s it – I never win anything so didn’t pay much attention – I was far more interested in the free books offer), I also grabbed the chance to download YA books by 10 new-to-me authors, and my Kindle is now bursting at the seams.

This seems a great way to try some new authors. I haven’t committed myself by specifically asking for a review copy, so if I don’t like their book no one’s any the wiser, but as I kind-of know several of these authors on Facebook I really hope I will like them – and if I do I can ‘pay’ for the book by writing a review. Authors LOVE reviews – don’t ever underestimate how thrilled you can make an author by writing a few words on Amazon or Goodreads!

But back to free books. If you like cracking YA books (and who doesn’t?), give it a go. Click on the link or any of the covers to find the details and enter if you’re interested.

Be quick, though: the contest (and download offer) ends 31st August.

And now I need to follow my own advice and post some reviews from the free books I’ve read recently!
