The Book Thief Giveaway… CLOSED

February 9, 2010


Okay, how could I not force one of the best books in the world on you guys?

Anyway, I’m giving away one brand-new, hardcover copy of The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. For a review and synopsis, click.

The giveaway is open internationally, so anyone from anywhere is free to enter – by February 28th, that is.

To enter:

Leave a comment here listing your top three favorite books. They don’t have to be in any particular order. I thought I’d get a few book recommendations out of this!

If you want to be a step ahead the rest, for extra entries, you can do two things:

1) Tweet about the giveaway with a link to this post. +3

2) Blog about the giveaway and/or link this post in your blog’s sidebar. +6

(If you do either, leave a web address in your comment, so that I can take a look.)

So comment/post/tweet quick before you lose your chance to win a copy of a book you must read before you die. May as well get a move on, right?



Congrats! And thanks to all who entered. I’ll be giving away The Goose Girl [Review] by Shannon Hale someday, but I don’t even have a copy, so it’ll be awhile! Have a wonderful Sunday!
