BAFAB: a book and a ... hand!

*Sticky Post (scroll down for newer stuff)

It's Buy a Friend a Book Week again! This time the book up for grabs is Strangers by Taichi Yamada. I read it for last year's R.I.P. Challenge, so it's been read once but is still like new, and while I didn't love it (didn't hate it either), it's had some good reviews. (Click on the title above to read the reviews at Amazon). Plus it's a slim book that won't take too much time to read. So I'm hoping someone will enjoy it!
As an added bonus, since I received 2 of them with my recent poppet purchases, I'll include one of Lisa Snellings-Clark's disembodied hand bookmarks.

If you're interested please leave a comment on this post by Friday, October 5th, and I'll draw a name sometime during the day on Saturday, October 6th. And remember that anyone anywhere can enter.

  2. I didn't think I'd be interested, but after reading that David Mitchell blurbed it, and about the comparisons to Murakami and "The Time Traveler's Wife", and its themes of loss and impermanence, it seems like it would be my kind of thing.

  9. Susan, ok got your name down.

    Teresa, I have to admit I thought I'd like it more than I did because of the David Mitchell quote but I probably just missed something.

    Debi, thanks! I thought it was kinda fun for the season. Enjoy your orange poppet!

  11. Enter my name. If the book wasn't enough to entice me (which it was), the bookmark sealed the deal. :)

  12. Iliana, I didn't know what to call it, but I guess 'disembodied' works! And yes, everyone really should have one! ;)
