My own 2nd Blogiversary BOOK GIVEAWAYS!!!!

Friends! On March 21st my blog will hit the two year mark. What an amazing thing! I want to celebrate by giving away books! If you want to enter, leave a comment stating which books you'd want to win for your very own self. I'll mail anywhere :) If you think to tweet about this or post it somewhere to spread the word, I'd be mighty grateful. I'll choose winners on the official day, March 21st before I go to bed :)

HERE is what you can win:

BOOK NUMBER 1

Read my review here. It was so funny I nearly choked on my mouthwash. This is the actual copy that I read :)




I read this one before I started blogging, but I really enjoyed it. This is a new copy of the book. Here's what I wrote on Shelfari:

This book was SUCH fun to read - I've recommended it to every one I know. Clever writing - all the text is letters between two cousins. The love story is just right and the magical element is clever. Loved it.

BOOK NUMBER 3

Last but not least: My Antonia by Willa Cather

This is one of my top 10 books of all time:

Such a well written book. The story is about a Czech girl who moves to Nebraska with her family and how she triumphs over the hard life they have there on the prairie. The book is really about love and loss and a connection to home and the land and is just a pleasure to read. I recommend it.

Do you like to know where your books come from? I REALLY do, so I will tell you about this copy that I am giving away. It's hardback and ILLUSTRATED with awesome 50s-ish drawings. It was probably published around 1954 or so. I bought it at a library used book sale when I was visiting my sister up in New York - it's a library just across the Hudson River from West Point, so it has a history :) There is a little bit of margin writing in it (probably from the original owner, looks like "old person" handwriting to me, hee hee) but I think it adds to the feel of this neat copy.


SO. The rules again:

1. leave a comment before the evening of March 21st and let me know which book(s) you want to be entered to win
2. make sure your EMAIL ADDRESS or a way to contact you is in the comment, or I have no way to tell you you've won
3. spread the word! I can't keep track of if you follow me or have me in your reader or tweet about it etc. etc, but if you'd pass it on, I'd be much obliged.

Definately "My Antonia." It is also one of my all time favorites and one I reccommend almost on a weekly basis. There is nothing like reading and holding an old book.
Congratulations on your anniversary! Keep blogging!!!

btw, I am just finishing, "Reading Lolita in Tehran." Have you read it? I can't get enough of it. It is killing me that it isn't my copy. I want to underline and write notes all over the place.

Congrats on the blogiversary!

I love books! :) Can I get put into the mix for all 3? That would be awesome! :)

Katie said...

And as a side note, Sorcery and Cecelia was delightful. My 12 yr old really liked it too.

Gina said...

Dear friend,

I read two books you reccommended on my last vacation and they were both great. I have not read Agnus and I'm sure if you recommend it it will be a winner.

Hmmm...I think I'd like to win either Sorcery and Cecelia or Angus, Thongs. They both look fabulous. Congrats on two years!

My Antonia, let's see. I was born in the 50's, my birthday is March 17th, and I love your book reviews. Recently I bought 4 books you've reviewed (when I asked for suggestions for our book club).Plus, you also know how to find me. Congratulations on completing two years. I just wish I had the time to read like you do.

I'd love any of them, but especially probably My Antonia. I haven't read it since high school but I remember loving it then. You have my email. Also I'm going to facebook your giveaway and tell all my book group friends -- who have already been referred to your blog repeatedly! :)
