Pam | 87 comments The feature isn't easy to find. Click "Explore", then click "Books", and you'll see a tab (top right) for "Giveaways". I haven't entered very many, but I did get a free copy of "Genghis", and it was pretty good. But shhhhhh . . . don't spread it around, or the odds will go down that we'll win a book. :-)

Jamie Collins (jamie_goodreads) | 76 comments I've seen people make comments about giveaways, but I didn't realize how to go about signing up for them. Thanks - I'll look through the list to see if there are any I'd be interested in.

Pam | 87 comments Jamie, I think I signed up for about ten. I was tickled to see an arc of Desert Spear, the sequel to The Painted Man, a fantasy that I liked quite a bit. I didn't bother to enter unless there were a lot of copies available.

Dani (kakwik) | 48 comments LibraryThing also has a group for giveaways/ARCs. I've received quite a few from them.

Ryl (rylf) | 29 comments I got a hardbound copy of Mary Oliver's newest book that way. She's my favorite living poet. I was most pleased.

bup Hey - I just won a book! YA, but sounds interesting. Ostrich Boys - some kids take some person's ashes on a road trip.

Dung Beetle (dungbeetle) Cool! I hope I get Joe Hill's Horns. I'm reading it now and thinking I may have to start buying his stuff.

Congrats to bup!
