2014 Book Giveaways

Each day we'll be giving away 25 copies of the book-of-the-day to new subscribers to the UP Week Roundup and folks who join that day's #upweek #book Twitter contest. Look below, read the day's Roundup, or visit @aaupresses for details of the day's giveaway!

Giveaway details and eligibility: Eligible subscriber emails and Twitter handles from each day will be entered into a drawing for one of 25 copies of the day's book. Winners will be drawn the next morning and notified by AAUP. Any individual may only win one book, but you're welcome to enter every day until you do! 

Want to join in our Twitter fun even if you have already won, or already have the book of the day? Just use the #upweek tag without the additional #book hashtag and we won't enter your handle in the drawing!
