Another *Giveaway* - The Smart One & The Pretty One

This post is now closed to further entries. Winners list will be posted, soon!

Oh, boy!! Another giveaway!!!

You can read a review of this book at Once Upon a Bookshelf. I have not read it and have not yet acquired a copy. Lately, I just feel like acting like a fairy godmother, sprinkling gifts upon the masses at the behest of Hatchette and the delightful Miriam Parker.

"This sparkling novel about two sisters is both witty and stylish. Even if you don't have a sister of your own, you won't be able to resist LaZebnik's charming take on modern relationships. Read it!"- Holly Peterson, bestselling author of The Manny


1. Leave your email address. This is a MUST. No email, no entry, period.

2. Answer this question: If you could choose any place in the world to visit, where would you go? If you've already been there, that's okay. I'm just curious where you'd like to go.

3. Whenever Hatchette does this, you have no choice but to think like a North American and be one. This drawing is limited to residents of the U.S. and Canada. No P.O. Boxes.

4. Spread the word and leave a link to your post or tweet for an extra entry. There will be 5 winners. Wahoo!!

The contest ends at 6 pm on September 27, 2009.


    If I could go anywhere it would be Ireland for sure. I'd love to stay in an old castle and pretend I was a princess from another time! :-) I also have tons of family there to visit and meet!

  2. Debi,

    Me, too! I've been in a castle mood, lately. There are some beautiful castles in Wales, too.

  3. I would go to Tuscany.

    I want to visit Highgate Cemetary in London for Halloween! After seeing pictures of it on the video introduction to Her Fearful Symmetry, it looks so historic and haunted. I bet they have some really cool epitaphs on some of the oldest statues.

  7. Wales sounds good, mostly because I really enjoyed the book I read recently that was set in Wales:

    And I'm part Irish, so Ireland would also be of interest to me. However, I'm also Scottish and would like to see Scotland. For real, this time, rather than traveling there by book with Liz Curtis Higgs a couple of years ago:

  8. Hmm....I'd go to my brother's beach hoese at Fripp Island...I don't like to travel but I love a nice uncrowded beach!


  9. I'd love to win this book.
    I would love to go to Ireland.
