***Drawing has now been closed to future comments. Winners coming up.***
I just found out I've been doing precisely the wrong thing, waiting till I read a Hatchette book before offering up a handful in a giveaway. Now that I know, I can go ahead and start the sign-up for this drawing. I'm really looking forward to reading A Lucky Child, but haven't gotten to it, yet. If I manage to read it before the drawing, I'll add a link to this post.
In the meantime . . . I've signed up to give away 5 copies of A Lucky Child, A Memoir of Surviving Auschwitz As a Young Boy by Thomas Buergenthal.
To enter, please do the following:
1. Leave a valid email address (this is non-negotiable; I get all pissy and ditch you from the list if you don't leave me an email address).
2. Tell me about your all-time favorite memoir -- title and author, if you would, please. I'm a big fan of memoirs. Stand Before Your God by Paul Watkins is one of my old favorites, in case you're interested, as is Benvenuto Cellini's Autobiography. I just felt like sharing.
3. That's it. You don't have to follow me or even like me. But, it would be nice if you'd be my pal. I kind of like you already, since you're obviously a booklover. You can find me on Twitter, if you'd like. I'm twittering under the very odd make-believe name "Bookfoolery" because nobody else is silly enough to conjure up that bit of goofiness and use it as a Twitter identity. It's nice being unique.
This drawing is open to U.S. and Canada residents only -- no P.O. Boxes. Winners will receive their copies directly from the publisher.
The drawing will be held on Tuesday, the 5th of May because that is Cinco de Mayo (party, party -- and easy to remember). Plus, that date also it gives you two weeks to figure out who you are, what you like and where you're located, then write them all down. Seems reasonable, yes? Best of luck!
