Another Couple of Book Giveaways

Hey, everyone, Nymeth over at things mean a lot is giving away 5 books for buy a friend a book week.  Go sign up and take a look at her cool site!

I interlibrary loan most of the books I read, but there are a few I would like to give away as well.

Here they are: 

A Thousand Splendid Suns, by Khaled Hosseini suns.jpeg

Diary of a Wimpy Kid (graphic novel), by Jeff Kinney wimpy.jpeg

The Glass Castle (trade paperback), by Jeanette Walls castle.jpeg 

The White Road, by John Connolly white.jpeg

The Killing Kind, by John Connolly killing.jpeg

I haven’t read the Connolly books.  They were given to me by my Dad and are hard-boiled detective type fiction.  I haven’t been in the mood for detective novels for quite awhile.

If you’d like any (or all) of these let me know.  If more than one person wants a particular book, I’ll draw your names out of a hat.  The deadline will be noon on Friday, April 4th.

Thanks to all of you who’ve been so welcoming to me right from the get go.  I feel like we’re a little family!  It’s pretty awesome.

    The Glass Castle sounds interesting – can you enter my name for that one? Thanks!

  3. Hi, I’d love A Thousand Splendid Suns, or if someone else wants it but no one wants the Diary of a Wimpy Kid, I’ll take that one instead. THANKS!

  4. Hi, I just discovered your blog the other day and have been enjoying it!

    Please add my name to the drawing for “The Glass Castle” – I’ve been thinking about reading that one.


  5. Great giveaway! Unfortunately I won’t be entering because I already own A Thousand Splendid Suns, read The Glass Castle ages ago, and am not interested in graphic novels or detective novels… but really, people will be very lucky to receive these books. 🙂

  6. I landed up here from the BAFAB page! Do count me in for
    “A Thousand Splendid Suns, by Khaled Hosseini”.

  9. Hi! I’d really, really, really love to read the first three listed. (the Connolly books just aren’t my cup of tea.) Thanks so much for offering the drawing! It’s impossible for me to pass up free books — any way to feed my addiction without coughing up mass amounts of money is welcome to me. Last time I went to the bookstore I ended up spending $150. Woops. This’ll be a way to hold me off for a while, if I win. 🙂
