The 9 Best Bookish Giveaways Happening This Very Minute

by  | September 22

It is the first day of fall and I don’t give two shits about pumpkin spice lattes. What I do care about? Fall book season, and all the magnificent free books and sweepstakes that come along with it. I mean hi, this is the season of Bruce Springsteen, Anna Kendrick, Ann Patchett, Jonathan Safran Foer, Zadie Smith, Margaret Atwood, Maria Semple, Michael Chabon, ROXANE GAY… the heavy hitters. So I’ve spent the morning scouring the inter-webs for all of the best bookish giveaways across all adult genres so you can get a jumpstart on stocking your TBR for the season. Enjoy! (And don’t forget to check back in November, because I do this every month kids. Every. Month.)
