Weekly Contest Roundup: Yet Another Blog Hop

It seems every time I turn around, there's a new blog hop.  Book bloggers are a generous group and the Freedom Giveaway Hop celebrating the 4th of July has bigger prizes than the previous hops I've covered.  So far I've made it through the first 100 participants and I have another 100 to look through.  Here are the ones that had prizes that appealed to me as well as some other contests I've stumbled across over the last week. 

There's also a wonderful contest being held by Lindsay Writes... that's encouraging donations to the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure and Stand Up to Cancer in return for the chance to win some great YA and fantasy books.

All contests that are part of the Freedom Giveaway end this Thursday, July 7.  Other contests have their end dates in parentheses.
