Edited to Add: The giveaway is now closed. Winners are listed below. Thanks to all for your kind wishes!
It was two years ago today that I accepted Jenny’s invitation to post my first review (of The Abstinence Teacher) here at Shelf Love. I had no idea at the time what a wonderful adventure book blogging would be.
In celebration, I thought today would be a good day to have another giveaway to clear off my overflowing bookshelves. As I’m sure I’ve mentioned in this space many times, I have limited space in my home, so I rarely keep books I don’t anticipate reading again, even if they are books I enjoyed very much. And today I have some fine books to share. In fact, some of these are so good that I held onto them for a while because I thought I might want to reread them, but I’ve decided that my desire for bookshelf space is greater than the likelihood of my rereading these books.
So, without further ado, here are the books I have up for grabs:
- The Hot Zone by Richard Preston. Hardcover in very good condition. (Won by Carin)
- Small Island by Andrea Levy. Trade paperback in very good condition. (Won by Diana)
- Heartburn by Nora Ephron. Older mass market paperback with creases in spine and a little yellowing. (Won by Marie)
- The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet by David Mitchell. Paperback advance reader’s edition in very good condition. (Won by Melissa)
- White Teeth by Zadie Smith. Paperback in good shape except for some water damage that affects the last fourth of the book. (Won by Marieke)
- A Civil Contract by Georgette Heyer. Mass market paperback Harper Monogram Regency edition with creased spine. Slightly musty odor. (Won by Ang)
- The Cherry Orchard by Anton Chekhov (Tom Stoppard’s version). Paperback in very good condition, except for smudges on cover. (Won by Lisa G.)
- Wrong: Why Experts Fail Us and How to Know When Not to Trust Them by David Freedman. Paperback advance reading copy. (Won by Sean)
So how can you get one of these books? Just leave a comment here by tomorrow (July 8) at 10 pm EST indicating which book you’d like. Now there is a catch. You can choose one and only one book, so you’ll have to prioritize and strategize a bit. I’ll use random.org to select the winners.
Good luck to all, and thanks so much for reading!
