What is this Blog Hop? Here it is explained in Jennifer's words:
As most of you know, Japan was recently struck with an 8.9M earthquake off its coast, which resulted in a devastating tsunami that wiped out tens of thousands of homes, cut off water supply and electricity and ended the lives of many (the death toll is still rising). It's heartbreaking that mother nature can be so cruel. But the human spirit, in all its glory, can rebound and move forward. Every bit of help means something.

Each blog will host their own giveaway; it can be whatever you want. There is no minimum or maximum amount for your giveaway. It is completely up to you. You can give away books, bookmarks, giftcards (Amazon, B&N, whatever) or anything else, as long as it is book-related.
All participating blogs will be linked up through a Blog Hop for Japan Giveaway linky and readers can jump from one blog to the next.
You will find the Paypal donation site that will be set up for this cause, with funds going to Shelterbox.
Please help spread the word. Retweet this, post it on Goodreads or Facebook, invite other bloggers. The more we get people involved, the bigger the impact we can make.
Thanks for your help!
So at Ex Libris I'll be giving away the following "Red Reader Pack" to one donor:
containing a brand new genuine red leather DuraGadget Kindle 3 cover and a Mass Market Paperback size red book jacket made by Chas at LovLiveLife Reviews (the Kindle inside the Kindle cover does not constitute part of the pack, it is solely there for illustrational purposes!)
Edited to add: and since giveaways are centered around books, I'll also throw in a surprise book for the winner! (I'll e-mail the winner with a list of potential books they can choose from)
(ps. You can find more pictures about the Kindle cover here, just click the image:)
All you have to do is
1) make a donation (no matter how small, we are grateful for your contribution!) AND
2) leave a comment with your e-mail address so I can contact you if you win.
Thank you and please make donations here:
