Literary Book Blog Hop Giveaway!

Yep, it's the Literary Giveaway Blog Hop time which is being hosted by Judith over at Leeswamme.

Although the book just has to have literary merit I decided to go for a classic. I am giving away an untouched penguin cloth edition of "The Picture of Dorian Gray" by Oscar Wilde. I love these books but sadly this classic is not my favourite. I know there are many of you out there who love it or will love it and it feels kind of selfish to hold onto it just because it's pretty (although it is very pretty).

I have no real rules for joining. All I ask is that you are a follower. Leave a comment on this post if you want to be in with the chance to win it (I am fine with posting overseas).

If you don't fancy this book then there are many other bloggers taking part and maybe you can sign up for one of those. The links to those are below. Otherwise I will announce the winner on the 29th. Good luck!
