Another *Giveaway* - Celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month with Hatchette

Sign-up for this giveaway is now closed! Winners' list coming soon!

Since one of my giveaways is about to end and opportunity knocked . . .

here's another! I'm so excited to be a part of this celebration! Hispanic Heritage Month takes place from September 15 - October 15. And, Hatchette Book Group loves celebrating by spreading some serious book joy around.

5 lucky winners will receive ALL 5 BOOKS. Coolness. I mean, really. What more could you ask for, except maybe world peace and chocolate without slavery?

The rules:

1. Leave an email address. Are you getting tired of hearing that? Well, just develop a habit, okay? No email, no entry. And, that would be soooo sad for you.

2. Yes, yes. Think like a North American and be one. You've heard that before, if you've joined in on one of my recent giveaways. Hatchette's giveaways are strictly limited to the United States and Canada. No P.O. boxes.

3. Spread the word and leave a link to your post or tweet for an extra entry. It's worth talking about for an extra chance, in my humble opinion.

4. Is there a book you've recently read that you found so entertaining/engrossing/gripping that you absolutely could not put it down? Tell me the title and author for another entry.

That's it! Pretty easy, eh? The drawing will be held on October 15, 2009.

And, don't forget to drop by and sign up for my drawing for 5 copies of The Smart One and The Pretty One, if you haven't. Tune in tomorrow (Sept. 21) to find out everyone's thoughts about my cat's favorite vegetable and to see who won The Way Home by George Pelecanos.

    I'm currently reading Survivor by Chuck Palahniuk. I cannot put this book down, so even though I'm not quite done reading it yet, that's my final answer.

    LOL! wv is "umbrain" which is what I get when I'm prevaricating.

  2. I seriously do NOT need to be entering this giveaway Nancy!! But it's too cool to pass up! Those books look fantastic! Since I'm on a book buying ban, I'm just looking for another way to acquire books :p Ok, my email is:


    And as for a book that was so good that I couldn't put it down: The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness...seriously...obsessed with that book!!! You must read it Nancy. I just know that you'd love it!!

  3. Wow, what a giveaway, I am a follower, the book I found great
    is Still Life by Joy Fielding.
    I could not put it down.

  7. Chris,

    You crack me up. I've done the same (don't tell). Last week, I won a few books. Like I need them.

    I just added The Knife of Letting Go to my wish list. Thanks for corrupting me. ;)

  8. I recently read and very highly recommended The Unit by Ninni Holmqvist.

  9. I just finished reading Simon van Booy's Love In Winter. It's a collection of such gorgeous, absorbing stories, that each time I finished a story, I felt unable to read anything else for a while!

  27. This is a wonderful contest.


    I very good book that I could not put down - An Elegy for Easterly by Petina Gappah - beautiful language

  28. Great contest! I'm always looking for a good book. I recently finished the first 6 books in the Sookie Stackhouse series and was quite pleasantly surprised about how much I enjoyed them. Very different from the show though.


  29. This is such an awesome giveaway, and I would really like to read all five books.

    I tweeted about this giveaway

    I recently read "Poppy and Ereth," an elementary level book, by Avi with illustrations by Brian Floca. It was such a heart-warming book that it was hard to put down until I finished reading it.

    Thank you,


  30. Oh me Oh me Oh me!!!! Pick me! MEMEMEMEME!!! :D trishsreadingnook at gmail dot com Yes it's a long one but I've all of a sudden started getting spam to my hotmail and I'm hacked.

    A book I couldn't put down? Speak. Even though jet lag I stayed up to finish.

    2. I am North American.

    3.I will make a link to this page and your main page on my Xanga blog tonight. That blog goes out to (at least) three other sites, not that I have the readership you have.

    4. I read The Trial of Robert Mugabe by Chielo Zona Eze in one day (a couple of weeks after I read the first couple of pages). Light storytelling style, not so light topic.

  32. I'd like to drop my name in the virtual hat - thanks for the giveaway. Recent great author I discovered was Gillian Flynn - Sharp Objects and Dark Places are both great macbre reads.

  36. What a great set of books - please count me in!

    Thanks ~ megalon22{at}yahoo{dot}com

  37. Right now I'm reading "The Help" by Kathryn Stockett that I'm enjoying reading. It's so hard to believe that that's how the U.S was in the 50's & 60's and I believe it shows we've come a long way.


  38. I'd love to enter, please.

    It's been a while since I read something that I just couldn't put down. Many of the books I've been reading lately are anthologies of short stories or essays, so as gripping as each piece is I can always put it down between them. The closest novel lately is a kids' book, The Land of the Silver Apples by Nancy Farmer, which was not spectacular but was fun and fast-paced enough that I read it in an afternoon.

    According to Jane by Marilyn Brant was very engrossing for me. It is about the ghost of Jane Austen which has taken up residence in a young girl's (Ellie) head. Very entertaining.
