I’ve recently acquired a new bookshelf, and in the process of transferring some of the stored books onto it have decided to cull some of the review and other books I’ve found in the process of unpacking books. These are all read previously. Some have been more gently read than others. All are or will be registered at bookcrossing.com before passing along. I don’t mind if the books go directly into your permanent collection, just please leave the labels inside for the future travels of the books. I would also love to get a journal entry sharing what you thought about the book after you read it. But it’s up to you.
Here are the books I want to pass along. I’ve included links to reviews if I have them, or to the bookcrossing journal page for publisher synopsis information.
Lighthouses of the Golden State: Calafornia's Majestic Beacons by Kent Wymouth
The Ten Year Nap by Meg Wolitzer
Castaways of the Flying Dutchman by Brian Jacques (Two copies available)
The House on the Shore by Victoria Howard
The Price of Pride by Donna MacQuigg (autographed copy)
The Wonderful Wizard of Oz: The Centenary Edition by L. Frank Baum
Lake Wobegon Days by Garrison Keeler
Leaving Home: A collection of Lake Wobegon Stories by Garrison Keeler
To enter, leave a comment telling me what book you are interested in reading (or books if more than one catches your eye), why you think you might like to read the book(s) and a way of contacting you such as an email address or bookcrossing ID. Since this is such an extensive list, I’m setting the deadline for the giveaway at September 29, 2009. This gives people three weeks to enter, and tell anyone they think might be interested about the contest.
This is open worldwide. Just be warned if you win and live out of North America it may take a little longer to get books sent out depending on finances :)
