Welcome to The Oaken Bookcase’s stop on the Australia Day Giveaway Hop! This hop is hosted by Book’d Out and Confessions from Romaholics!

It’s Australia Day on January 26th each year – a day to sit in the sun, enjoy a swim at the beach or have a barbie with family or friends. This year we get Monday off in lieu of the 26th falling on Saturday, so hooray long weekend! Unfortunately here in Queensland there’s an ex-cyclone hanging around so there’s going to be plenty of rain and wind all weekend, so I’ll mostly likely be curling up inside with a book instead!

To share the Aussie spirit of the weekend, I’m joining in with the Australia Day Giveaway hop and giving away a book by an Aussie author.

Extra entries are available for those who share word of the giveaway on twitter. You don’t have to also follow me, but if you are able to it would be really appreciated 🙂

You can see all the other sites participating in the hop by visiting the main hop page at Book’d Out. If you can’t see the Rafflecopter widget, you’ll need to click the “More” link or the post title to open up the post itself.

The Prize

You can choose any one of the great books by Aussie authors pictured below, to be ordered from The Book Depository.

This giveaway is open Internationally, as long as the Book Depository ships to your country. If you’re not sure, check here.

Please note, I will only accept entries via the rafflecopter form! Please don’t put your email into a comment, it won’t be included as an entry!

The Rafflecopter form will be open until the middle of midnight, January 28 AEST, then the winner will be notified by email and have 48 hours to respond with their address. Good luck, and happy Australia Day!


Edit Jan 28: Sorry everyone, I realise I’ve mucked up my rafflecopter and finished the giveaway a day early *blush* Thanks so much for visiting, anyway!  Hop on to the next blog instead 🙂

Edit Jan 28: The contest is now closed. I had to manually add three entries after closure (see comments below), so I picked a winner using out of 162 entries rather than using the Rafflecopter system. The winner has been emailed!

Further update: The winner is Jacqueline, from Sydney, who chose a copy of Stormdancer. I hope you enjoy it!

  8. Hi Angelya

    I’m in Perth — I could send you some sunshine if you’d swap me some rain. Would love some rain! Isn’t life in Australia ironic?

    Happy Australia Day!

    Thank you very much! I`m in love with this giveaway! 🙂 I`m from Europe and I`m non-native English speaker; there is not a very big choice of books in English here (except online shops) and they`re usually from American and British writers so this is a very beautiful opportunity to get to know the Australian writers 🙂

    Snowy greetings from Latvia,

    • Angelya says:

      Thanks for visiting Dita! If you’re interested in Australian fantasy books you might like to take a look at my Discover Aussie Fantasy month I held in July of last year.. there were plenty of reviews and other articles there 🙂

    As at writing this, the Rafflecopter is closed despite part of terms and conditions advising, “January 29 AEST,” I would like to read Stormdancer.

    • Angelya says:

      I must apologise Caroline, it seems the rafflecopter finished at midnight aest rather than at pst as I expected 🙁 there doesn’t seem to be any way to add entries after the contest is closed either, I’m so sorry 🙁
      Edit: Okay, here’s what I’ve done. It was my fault that I messed up the rafflecopter closing time, so I’ve added 3 entries for you Caroline (the maximum you could have got today by tweeting and following). I’ve picked a winner out of 162 entries using

      I hope that’s acceptable.
