ENORMOUS Book Giveaway!

Book Blogger Appreciation Week will be September 14-18, a time to celebrate bloggers who read and write about books. Some blogs are pure reading and books, while others like mine have a book review or two a week. I know many who read my blog are also book readers, but don't usually write about it, so to encourage reading, and empty my shelves, I am giving away a bunch of books that I've already reviewed. BUT, there's a catch. If you win, by accepting the book you are agreeing to read it and write a review that will appear on your blog during Book Blogger Appreciation Week. It doesn't have to be long, and I am more than willing to assist you in writing it. With your review, it would be great if you could host a giveaway for the book so it gets passed on again. My giveaway ends at midnight EST next Sunday, August 16. That will give you a month to read the book and write the review.
I am not offering any specials for extra entries, but it would be great if you'd pass on this information in the spirit of spreading the love of books, and link to BBAW in your sidebar, if possible.
You may enter to win as many books as you'd like from the list below. They are all books that I really liked for different reasons, but they all may not be your personal cup of tea. Entries MUST be left in the comments section of each individual book so I know which ones you are interested in receiving, and need to be dated August 7 or later, so if you've already commented on a review, you'll still need to comment that you'd like to win the book.

Hi Elizabeth, I need help you would have to recommend the most "historical" book in the group and then I'd sign up to win it, read it. Thanks Jewelgirl :)
