What Should I Read in December? Giveaway

It’s time again for you to choose a prize from my overflowing bookshelves. Here’s how to enter:

  1. Visit my TBR list and choose one book you’d like to have.
  2. Leave a comment on this post (not on my TBR list) telling me your choice. (Only one choice per person, but it’s ok to pick the same book as someone else.)
  3. Make your choice and leave your comment by November 30.

During the first week of December, I’ll randomly select one recommendation. Once I’ve read the winning book, I’ll pass it along to the winner.

And now for the usual caveats:

  • All books are used, but most are perfectly readable. I’ve noted a few books that are particularly shabby on my list.
  • I’ll mail the book as soon as I’m done reading it. The longer the book, the longer it’ll take.
  • If you recommend a series, you’ll get the first book in the series only.
  • If you’re a brilliant recommender and choose a book I can’t part with, you’ll get a brand spanking new copy!

Have fun shopping from my list!

    I choose ‘Children of Men’
    because the movie was awesome but I always feel like there’s probably more detail and infoz in the book.

  2. Alessandra says:

    I choose The Glass Castle By Jeanette Walls. Thanks for the great giveaway!

    I’d choose Hotel world by Ali Smith. I’ve just read her impressive Other stories and other stories so am interested in her other work.

    But out of books I already own and would recommend… The Tenant of Wildfell Hall, The Wind in the Willows, Catch 22 and White Teeth are all favourites, and if you read them I might be inspired to do a re-read!

  4. Gaskella says:

    I’d choose ‘The Mortician’s Daughter’ by Elizabeth Bloom. I know nothing about it, but the title draws me in!

  5. Carmen T says:

    ‘The History of Love’ by Nicola Kraus. =)

  6. Tara says:

    I choose The Ivy Tree by Mary Stewart. Great contest!

  7. S says:

    I pick The Post-Birthday World by Lionel Shriver. I read her book We Need to Talk About Kevin for a book club a few years ago and really enjoyed it.

    BTW, I feel compelled to comment on some of the books on your TBR pile that I’ve read. I loved Notes from a Big Country and The Lost Continent by Bill Bryson, Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides, and An American Tragedy by Theodore Dreiser. IMO, If I Am Missing or Dead by Janine Latus was a waste of time: I gave it away before I was even halfway through because I couldn’t finish it.

    I’d pick My cousin Rachel by Du Maurier or Notes on a Scandal by Zoe Heller. You have a lot of good ones on your list!
    Thanks for the chance to win one.

  9. Sandra says:

    You’ve got some really gooding reading in that list. I recommend that you read From A to X by John Berger. I’d love to be entered please, thank you.

  10. I’m going to suggest The Self-Made Man: One Woman’s Journey Into Manhood and Back Again by Norah Vincent in the hopes of getting picked this time! Happy reading!

    Wow, that’s a long TBR list! I’m going to pick two, if I win you pick whichever of the two you prefer.
    1) A Walk in the Woods, Bill Bryson
    2) Holy Cows and Hog Heaven: The Food Buyer’s Guide to Farm Friendly Food by Joel Salatin

    If choosing two options disqualifies me, I’ll pick the Bryson.

    Ali (Worducopia)

  12. I would choose Thank You for Smoking by Christopher Buckley. I have been wanting to read this for a while, but haven’t gotten around to it! Thanks for the chance to win!!
