It was another rainy Sunday here but I didn't get as much reading in as I would've liked. The story of my life it seems. I did finish Farewell to Manzanar in the morning though, and then started Matrimony by Joshua Henkin, which I'm enjoying so far. This week I posted reviews of The Tenderness of Wolves and The Scortas' Sun, both of which I enjoyed a lot for their strong settings.
But I'm going to keep it short this week because it's time once again for Buy a Friend a Book Week. This time, inspired by one of Stone Soup's Monday giveaways, I'm going to offer up my 're-homing pile'. These are the books that I don't plan to keep and that are currently living in a box near my desk waiting to be re-homed.
To enter, leave a comment on this post by Saturday, with the title of the book that you'd like to win. For two entries, blog about BAFAB Week and my giveaway, and then don't forget to come back and let me know that you have. I'll draw two names next Sunday. If by strange coincidence the two people drawn have chosen the same book, the first name out of the hat will get it and the second will have a chance to choose another from the pile.
FYI: Moon Palace, Psalm at Journey's End, The Handmaid's Tale, Vendetta, and An Equal Music are registered at Bookcrossing.
P.S. Giveaway open to anyone who can receive mail! :)
I'm very behind on blog reading but I'll be posting about other BAFAB giveaways here as I come across them, so let me know if you're giving books away this week as well.
