As many of you may know, I am no longer a New Yorker, so please check out my new blog A Library of My Own. If you are just reading Life and Times, you are missing out. Thanks!

Books for Grabs - A Random Contest

Ok, I have a few books that I want to give away. And I don't know how spectacular they are or if a lot of people would want them. Here they are:

Atonement - Ian McEwan
Paperback and the cover is the version to the left.










Their Eyes Were Watching God - Zora Neale Hurston
Paperback and the cover is the version to the left.
My review is here









The Light of Day - Graham Swift
Paperback and the cover is the version to the left.
My review is here









The Diana Chronicles - Tina Brown
Hardcover
I've never read this one and probably won't so...








Here's the deal. Post a comment saying which book you want. If you are the only one who wants it, it's yours. If there's more than one I will hold drawing and the winner gets it. This "contest" will be open through Friday, September 12th and I will announce the winners on Saturday. If no one wants a book it's going to my apartment's basement bookshelf. Good Luck!

Again if I have your address I can send it to you...wherever you are.

  5. I would like to enter for "Their Eyes Were Watching God."

    I actually read the Diana book and liked it, but I figured I would enter for something I hadn't already read. :)
