What Should I Read in February? Giveaway

Once again, it’s time 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. (Books on my wish list or upcoming book club reads are not eligible.)
  2. Leave a comment on this post (not on my TBR list) telling me your choice.
  3. Only one entry per person. If you’re interested in more than one book, you can offer a couple of options, and I’ll read the one that suits my fancy and pass it along to you. It’s ok to choose the same book as someone else.
  4. Make your choice and leave your comment by January  31.

During the first week of February, 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!

  8. Angela says:

    My vote is for The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield. It would certainly be difficult to choose from such a great list!

  9. Anastasia says:

    I vote for Neuromancer by William Gibson! I’ve got the audiobook, but I HATE the narrator, so a paper copy would be lovely.

    I vote for Three Men in a Boat by Jerome Jerome.

  11. Eva says:

    I’m voting Lipstick Jihad.

    ‘Lipstick Jihad’ looks popular, but I’d also be curious about ‘Your Call is Important to us’.

  15. mamacitay2j says:

    Becoming a Tiger: How Baby Animals Learn to Live in the Wild by Susan McCarthy looks pretty interesting.. Heck, a lot of books on your list look interesting, lol.

  16. Stephanie says:

    Wow, there are so many good books that I, too, want to read! I’d say go for Slaughterhouse Five by Kurt Vonnegut.

  17. Alyce says:

    I think you should read The Great Starvation Experiment: The Heroic Men Who Starved So That Millions Could Live by Todd Tucker.

    mine would be a civil contract thanks for the giveaway

  20. gfsnell3 says:

    Great list! I’ll have to go with “I Claudius” by Robert Graves because its a classic I’ve always wanted to read, but never have.

    You can reach me at darkpartyreview(AT)gmail(DOT)com.

    Your Call Is Important to Us: The Truth About Bullshit by Laura Penny

  22. Tracey Byram says:

    I can recommend the Stephen King books, especially Four Past Midnight and Different Seasons. You should read those. I’d like to read The Motician’s Daughter.

  23. Ape says:

    I must compliment you on this great idea for a contest! There are so many books to choose from, how you torture me! :P I’m interested in World War Z, I love post-apocalypse books and this has had so much praise. :)

  24. Daniel B. says:

    You should definitely read Reading Like a Writer by Francine Prose. I have heard only excellent reviews.

  25. mountebank says:

    Hi Teresa, I came by your site via LibraryThing (and will try to remember that I can’t use touchstones here!). I wanted to throw my hat in the ring for “Three Men in a Boat” by Jerome K. Jerome. I see from your TBR list that that book’s subtitle, “To Say Nothing of The Dog” is a book in its own right by Connie Willis. Must go check it out – thanks!

  26. Kaye says:

    i think you should read What was she Thinking:Notes on a Scandal by zoe Heller Sounds like a really good one.

  27. Kathryn says:

    My vote goes to House of the Spirits by Isabel Allende. I don’t believe I’ve ever heard anything negative uttered about this book, and I’ve been dying to read it for some time now.

  28. cheryl says:

    To Say Nothing of the Dog by Connie Willis would be my choice

  29. Popin says:

    My choice would be The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield.

  30. cecilia says:

    Such a great list! It looks almost like mine :) What to read first…

    What I’d want after you…
    1) World War Z
    2) The Thirteenth Tale
    3) Neuromancer

    But I’d also highly recommend (without wanting the copy)
    * To Say Nothing of the Dog
    * Catch 22

  31. Beth says:

    I thoroughly enjoyed ‘The Thirteenth Tale’ so would definitely recommend that…although I already have a copy so that recommendation is free ;)

    Otherwise, I’ve heard excellent things about Kraus, ‘A history of love’

    Happy reading!
