Note: This Giveaway is closed. Congrats to Carmen T. whose suggestion of The Boleyn Inheritance was selected at by the Random Integer Generator. I’m making this a monthly event, with the next giveaway on August 1. Details here.
Well, folks, I have a serious problem. I am a book addict. I can’t pass a book sale, a giveaway, or a book swapping site without aquiring one, two, or twenty new books, and my shelves are full! So I am trying to read through my collection instead of going to the library or, God forbid, acquiring more books. (Nothing against the library, you understand, it’s one of my favorite places, but, alas, the great books I find there are part of the problem!)
So, here’s how you can help. Take a look at my book list and tell me what you think I should read next. On Sunday, I’ll choose one suggestion at random, read the book, post a review, and pass the book along to the lucky person who suggested it.
A few caveats:
- I generally read at least a book a week, so you won’t have to wait long for me to finish and send the book to you, but if you choose something really long, say The Way We Live Now, you’ll have to be patient.
- I get a lot of books from used-book sales and book-swapping sites, so many books on my list are used–and some are not very gently used. I make no guarantees on book condition, but if something looks like it’s on its last read, I’ll let you know so you can make an alternate choice.
- I have several book series on my list. If you suggest one of those and win, you’ll get the first book only.
- If you happen to be a particularly brilliant recommender and select something that I decide, upon reading, that I simply cannot part with, you’ll get a new copy of your own!
The deadline to make your suggestion is Sunday, July 13, at noon U.S. Eastern Standard Time. I’ll announce the winner Sunday afternoon. Good luck!
