Books for Bunnies

So, most of the time when you think of cute, furry rescued animals, you think of cats and dogs. But what about the bunnies? Well, that's where The House Rabbit Society comes in. So how can you help? Well, a bunch of different authors donated books as prizes. And when I say books, I mean a ton of books. There’s something for everyone here; children’s books, cook books, fantasy, romance, adventure, suspense. With so many choices, how can you go wrong? So how do you get a book? By donating to help the bunnies. They’ll appreciate anything you can give, no matter how big or small. So next time you think of furry little animals in need, don’t forget the bunnies!


And now, a word and more details from Suzie and the Bunnies:

Books for bunnies is an event set up by the blogger over at The Bunny’s Review and coordinated with the help of blogger Alchemy of Scrawl. 

These two ladies have worked tirelessly in getting authors to donate eBooks’ for the event.   Currently there are over 100 eBooks that have been donated, along with over 30 print books donated. Some of the print books are even signed by the author’s themselves.

The event is to help raise money for the House Rabbit Society.  The House Rabbit Society or HRS is a 501 non-profit organization to help raise awareness and to rescue rabbits from animal shelters.  Below is a little about the background of the HRS.

House Rabbit Society Background

House Rabbit Society is a national, nonprofit animal welfare organization based in Richmond, California. Our mission has two parts:
  • Through our fostering program, volunteers rescue abandoned rabbits and find permanent adoptive homes for them.
  • Through education, we seek to reduce the number of unwanted rabbits — and to improve bunnies' lives — by helping people better understand these often misunderstood companion animals.
In line with our mission, we are against the exploitation of rabbits.

Since HRS was founded in 1988, over 25,000 rabbits have been rescued through our foster homes across the United States. Many of these bunnies had run out of time at animal shelters and were scheduled for euthanasia; others had been deemed "unadoptable" because of age, health, or disposition. Because there is no time limit on our rescued rabbits, HRS foster parents are able to spend time getting to know each individual bunny and can then match him or her with an appropriate home. We neuter/spay all incoming rabbits, obtain any necessary veterinary care, and attend to their social needs.

In caring for so many diverse bunnies, our all-volunteer organization has learned a tremendous amount about their social, behavioral, and medical requirements. By sharing the collected information these rabbits have taught us, we are able to help other people improve their relationships with their rabbits. HRS provides educational materials to veterinarians and humane societies and helps individual rabbit people solve behavior and health problems, primarily through our web site,, and our quarterly publication, House Rabbit Journal.

Over the past 20 years, HRS has grown from 300 to more than 8,000 members, with local chapters and educators in over 30 states plus Canada, Italy, Hong Kong, Australia and Singapore. Our web site,, is accessed over 100,000 times a day by people in dozens of countries around the world.

We are asking people to donate money to the HRS at this link through Network for Good.   The person that makes a donation will receive either an eBook or print book equal to the amount donated.  There are books ranging in price from 99 cents to $27.00.  There are several print copies of the books that have been autographed by the author. 

The person that donates will receive an email thanking them for donating.  That email needs to be forwarded to  This will show the amount that has been donated.  Please remember there is not any donation that is too small.  Any amount will be greatly appreciated.   The HRS will use the money to either help pay for vet bills or help in finding a forever home for the hundreds of bunnies in their care.

Please if possible take a moment to donate a couple of dollars to the HRS you never know what bunnies life you might be saving.

Future of this blog is set...

So, I've decided that as of right now (meaning this is liable to change in the future), I'm only going to post my reviews here if I'm part of a book tour or blog hop. I will be adding other reviews in the future for books that I liked and recently read. I'm still working things out with this blog, so once I get that settled and have a few tour posts under my belt, I will start posting other reviews and such here. I am also planning weekly posts/memes, so if anyone has any ideas, let me know. My plan is by September or October at the latest is to have everything set up, to have weekly posts and to review at least 2 books a week. But you know what they say, God laughs at plans. So, we'll see where it goes from there.

So, I just joined a book tours host team which means I'll be posting up reviews and giveaways and all sorts of goodies. I've also decided that I'm going to participate in blog hops in the future as well (currently deciding which ones). Why? Cause I love reading and sharing my opinion and quite frankly, I need the distraction. It's a passion of mine that I have decided to pursue. This also means I'll probably be posting more here and so stick around for the ride. It's going to be entertaining...
