Giv by Boston Teran - GIVEAWAY!

Do you remember (one post ago) when I raved that I loved Boston Teran's Giv: The Story of a Dog and America, but I wasn't going to give my copy away?

Well, Jim over at Keeley and Hall sent me an email saying that they are sending me FIVE copies of GIV to giveaway. How cool is that?!

So you know the drill, go over and read my review and then enter my giveaway here. Please comment on why this book sounds interesting and leave me a way to contact you. For fun, let me know if you have any pets that have made a different in your life.

I love my international readers so the contest is open world-wide through November 25th.


  1. Hey, doll! No need to enter me; I'm dropping in to say thanks for the e-mail. I've got this posted at Win a Book.

    I dig the savvy PR dude who's sending you books. He deserves a raise for being so slick.

  2. This book sounds wonderful since I really love dogs (animals in general) I like how its about his journeys. My dog Lolo has made a huge impact on my life, and I feel I would be lost without her! Thanks for the chance into this giveaway.


  3. I loved your review (I just finished re-reading it)...This book sounds fabulous...a very creative story...and currently, I do not have any pets...

  4. Totally count me in. Interesting - because I've often considered writing a book about life from a dog's point of view. Pet story - had an Akita who was so protective of me that eventually I had to put her down because she tried to bite kids walking in our door. It was devastating to me. She was always by my side or sleeping plastered up against my body. My daughter and I still miss her so much.

  5. i've never read a book about an animal and i've never heard about Boston Teran. Your review's interesting, it's intrigued me :)
    i wanna read about the free-will, and rebellion inside the story.
