The Great Eight Give-Away!

Here's the deal - I have 8 books to give away. If you are interested in a freebie, please leave a comment stating the book(s) you would like to win. I will post the random winners on August 12th. (only one book per winner)

I have decided to do "Give-Aways" for mainly two reasons:
1.  I enjoy giving stuff away and
2.  It's like taking a friend out for a cup of coffee.  It's not expensive and fun to do.

My apologies to those that entered the drawing that do not live in the USA.  While I would love to treat you to a "cup of coffee", the expense is too great for me to ship a book outside the US.  I will remember to add that stipulation the next time I have a Give-Away.  Again, I'm sorry.

This is a slightly worn paperback that I won from Lynne, so it has been read a couple of times, but is still in good shape.  Here are my thoughts on the book.


This is a hardcover book that looks almost new.  Somehow I acquired two of these, so this one is up for grabs.  I do not have a post about this book, but I read it in 2005 and rated it a 4.5/5.  (I'm a Grisham fan.)  


This came to me as a "free gift" in the mail.  It actually states that it's a free gift on the cover.  If you haven't received yours yet, you may have mine.  It's a brand spankin' new paperback.  I have no thoughts on this book.

WINNER:  no requests

I purchased this hardcover book from a library book sale.  It still crackles like a new book, but has a tiny tear on the dust jacket.  I have no thoughts on this book. 


This was also a library sale purchase.  It is a hardcover book with a slightly worn dust jacket and an inch tear at the bottom near the spine.  Otherwise, it still crackles, too.  I have no thoughts on this book.

(providing you live in the USA)

I won this book from Gentle Reader.  It is a paperback and looks almost brand new.  My not so pleasant thoughts are here, but don't let that stop you.


I received this from Dr. Barbara Becker Holstein, the author.  It is a small paperback that looks brand new.  My thoughts are here.

WINNER:  no USA requests

This also came free through the mail.  It is a brand new paperback with "free gift" on the cover.  I have no thoughts on this book.

WINNER:  no requests


  1. Oh Oh Oh, I'm first!! :D My first pick would be The Beautiful Cigar Girl and my second The Gathering. Thanks Joy! When you say you don't have any thoughts (and no rank) does that mean you're not going to read these?

  2. Hi Joy,

    If you don't mind sending to Canada...
    I would really, really, really love to be entered for:
    The Beautiful Cigar Girl

    But I'd also be happy to win either:
    The Gathering
