BAFAB: Spring Cleaning Giveaway

It's still a work in progress but my blog's had a bit of a facelift, and now our apartment is also in desperate need of some spring cleaning. To help out a bit, I'm offering up 5 books from my giveaway box, your choice, for Buy a Friend a Book Week.


Click on the photo to enlarge.

To enter, simply leave a comment on this post with the title of the book you'd like to win. And if your contact information is not readily available on your blog, or you don't have a blog, make sure to leave your email address as well.

You will also get an extra entry for each relevant comment on any of my other blog posts over the next week.

Next Wednesday, April 8th, I will draw 5 names. Open to anyone, anywhere, with reliable mail service.

This giveaway is now closed. Thank you to everyone who entered.

  7. I'd love to win "Surfacing" by Margaret Atwood. It's been on my get-from-the-library-TBR-list for a long time, as it's one of the few Atwoods I haven't read yet. (ttbrader at cox.net)

  15. Oooh! I've never read anything by any of those authors but I do believe I'd very much enjoy either one of the Michael Dibdin novels!

  16. I would totally love to take Grotesque or William Trevor's book off of your hands. You are too kind to have a give-away, and too industrious to be Spring cleaning: I should be that good.

  17. I actually have perfume on my W(ant)TBR list! I really should do this with my own collection. Thanks for offering so many up!

  24. I can't believe I let BAFAB sneak up without me knowing! Maybe I'll catch it the next time around.

    I would like a chance to win Michael Dibdin's Vendetta, please. I've been wanting to try his series for awhile now and I have the first book. Figure I might as well try for the second. :-) Thanks for the chance!

  25. I must have missed your review of Moon Palace -- I'll have to look back and see if I can find it. I enjoyed that book. Auster is nice and quirky.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Wow. Great giveaway. How did I not know about BAFAB? I'll need to do something about that. Put me down for 'Pompeii' please. Thanks!

  27. I saw you have the Handmaid's Tale bookcrossing book. Funny that I have one too (which I got from another bookcrosser).
    I'd love to be in the draw. I'm interested in Grotesque. Or the XXXHolic, even though you say it's just meh. But it's by CLAMP and I like their art style if not the story :).

  28. I would love your copy of Peace Like a River. It is on my TBR.

    ReplyDelete
  29. oh...wow, is this cool or what. Thanks for the giveaway.

    I would love to be entered for The handmaid's tale, since it's not available here. Or Fahrenheit 451.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Wow, how fun! I'm REALLY interested in Moon Palace (I haven't read that one yet!) but also Surfacing or Peace Like A River.

  31. I would love a chance at Pompeii by Robert Harris. Thanks

  43. I'd love to enter! If I were to win, I'd pick Farenheit 451 because you just can't go wrong with a classic, right?

  46. Thanks everyone for entering! I'm a day late but I'll post the winners in a little bit. Stay tuned.

    Nymeth - That's what happened to me in January. I missed BAFAB Week but then had my blogiversary at the end of the month. :)

    lissa - Thank you!

    Bellezza - I haven't really tackled the apartment yet, but clearing out a few books is a good first step. :P

    Frances - Not bringing any more books in sounds good in theory but I'm not that strong! I just got a copy of Drood a couple of weeks ago. It sounds really good!

    Nancy - I read Moon Palace quite a while ago, a couple of years ago maybe, so I don't even remember much about it anymore. LOL. I do want to read more Auster though. Nice and quirky is a good description.

    Popin - Thanks! Everyone seems to love Felicia's Journey. I think that'll have to be the next book of Trevor's that I try.

    Bcteagirl - I'm a day late so you sneaked in just in time. :)
