APOCALYPSE BLOG HOP + GIVEAWAY!

It's the end of world as we know it!

I'm taking part in Rainy Day Ramblings, Love of Books and The Nocturnal Library Apocalypse Blog Hop.

So the world has come to an end - lets assume a massive natural disaster like a comet hitting the earth, a super volcano going off or the earth's magnetic pole have gone haywire, rather than a zombie apocalypse or nuclear war. You're hold up in your favourite reading spot which has miraculously survived untouched...you have some provisions - food and water and for now everything is quiet. So taking advantage of this new quiet, what book do you read...? An old favourite or something new? Share with us what your first post-apocalypse read would be and win a book of your choice (up to $10) from Book Depository. Just fill in the Rafflecopter below.

Rules:
- Open Internationally
- Ends Midnight 20th July 2013
If you win, you'll have 72 hours to reply my email, otherwise I'll pick another winner
- You don't have to be a follower, but I won't object if you are! :)
- Don't forget to check the other stops on the hop at the bottom!
