Today I received a lovely package in the mail today from the wonderful blogger Cipriano. It was (of course!) a book: Geraldine Brooks’s novel People of the Book, which I won in a contest he held a couple weeks ago. Thank you, Cipriano!
This made me think about just how wonderful the book blogging community is and how many books I’ve won in similar give-aways over the last couple years. I must have pretty good luck, because I find I win these things pretty often. So thanks to everyone out there who has sent me a book (or several)!
It’s definitely time to return the favor. I missed the obvious occasion for a book give-away because my three-year blogging anniversary was back in March (three years! how have I done it so long?). But who needs a special occasion to have a book give-away?
So here’s the deal: just leave a comment on this post saying you’d like to enter the contest. I’ll collect all the names and pick the winner in a week (on Thursday, April 9th).
And here’s what I’ll give away: I’ll follow Emily’s excellent idea and let the winner pick a book that’s listed in the Books Read section of the blog. In other words, that person can pick anything I’ve reviewed since 2007. If you win, whatever from those lists your heart desires is yours.
Entries from people outside the U.S. are fine.
This is just a little thank you for making the book blogosphere so wonderful!
