Blog Hop for Japan Giveaway

Hello readers and welcome to the Blog Hop for Japan Giveaway, courtesy of April @ My Shelf Confessions. The Hop: several bloggers are hosting giveaways from April 1st to 15th to help support the victims of Japan's recent earthquake. If you've read the news or watch TV, you know the cause, but I will just reiterate:  Japan experienced a hugely destructive earthquake and subsequent tsunami on March 11th, that claimed almost 20,000 victims and left hundreds of thousands homeless and without food, water and power. If you want to help out, please clink the donation widget below or on the right sidebar. All funds donated through this blog and others will be directed to Shelterbox, a not-for-profit organization that supplies disaster victims with the "emergency shelter and life-saving equipment" they need. Who else is in the Hop? See the list just below, and scroll down a bit to see what awesome stuff I'm giving away...
Giveaway -- Now that you ask, the lucky winner of this giveaway (chosen by will be graced with 2 pristine copies of French literary classics (in English, of course) and some fun gadgets as follows:

Swann's Way (Modern Library Classics)In Search of Lost Time, Vol. II: Within a Budding Grove (Modern Library Classics) (v. 2)
  • Swann's Way (In Search of Lost Time, Vol. I) by Marcel Proust
  • Within a Budding Grove (In Search of Lost Time, Vol. 2) by Marcel Proust
  • 1 mini blue Moleskine blank notebook

Rules:    To enter, leave a comment to this post with some variation of your email address so I can contact the winner for mailing info. I was gonna use a form, but too much craziness. US & Canada only. Contest ends Friday, April 15th. That's it! Again, please take a moment to donate via the widget on my right sidebar.  Thank you!
