Book Giveaway Carnival


As I mentioned last week, I'm participating in the Book Giveaway Carnival that's being hosted at Book Room Reviews. I have 3 things to give away:
  1. A copy of The Love We Share Without Knowing by Christopher Barzak, a lovely book I posted about here;
  2. A copy of We Never Talk About My Brother by Peter S. Beagle, a book I haven't read yet, but which is lovely too for sure. I explained the reason why I'm including it in the giveaway here, and you can see me gushing about Peter Beagle here and here;
  3. Bookmarks! I have 3 sets of 3 to give away:

(click to enlarge)

The bookmarks are all homemade, except for the first one in the first set, which is from this Etsy store. I'm giving it away because I have two of them. I ordered one a while ago, and then more recently Bart, guessing my taste just right, included another one in the copy of Old Man's War he sent me.

Rules:
  • To be entered, just leave me a comment saying if you're interested in book 1, book 2, the bookmarks, or all of them.
  • Make sure you include a way for me to contact you if you win.
  • You can be entered for all three giveaways, but you can only win one.
  • Open worldwide.
  • Winners will be announced on Sunday, March 8th.
Good luck!

    Those bookmarks are indeed lovely. Reminds me of the lovely lady who sent me similar lovely bookmarks :P

    And hopefully Barzak's and Beagle's newest books will be available here soon.

  17. I would love the book "We Never Talk About My Brother". The fact Charles de Lint (another underappreciated author) recommends this book is enough for me. I've been a fan of de Lint's books for years. Thanks for the opportunity! Indigo

    Book Twin, I've been meaning to ask you this: when's your birthday? :P

    Tracy, thanks for answering my newbie question!

    bookworm (and anyone else wondering about contact info): If you have a blog where I can leave a comment, that's more than enough. It's just that I once had a winner with no e-mail address and no blog :P Needless to say, I ended up having to draw another name a week later.

    Your bookmarks are beautiful, but Oprah has me decluttering my life, and I've finally been forced to admit that a piece of junk mail makes a perfectly good bookmark and I don't need the millions of other ones I have.

  144. Sorry Barbara - the giveaway is no longer open.

  145. LOL--with 147 comments already dare I leave another one? :) I just wanted to say that I was sad I missed this one. Your bookmarks are incredibly wonderful looking.
