Armchair BEA, Day 2: Giveaway!!

Tuesday, June 5, 2012


Book Expo America week is here! For those who are unable to attend BEA in New York City, there is Armchair BEA... so, assuming I keep up, every day this week I'll be posting according to Armchair BEA's agenda.

Today's topic is giveaways, or best books of 2012, or most looked forward to for the year.

First I'll start with my giveaway. Rather than pick out specific books to give away which was my plan, I'm going to give away a $10 gift card to Barnes & Noble or Amazon (or an indie book store if you have one you prefer that I can get online) so you can choose the book. To enter the giveaway, fill out the form at the bottom. Anyone with an e-mail can enter!

Below are just some of the BEA "buzz" books that I'm looking forward to reading in the coming months!(Click on the cover to go to a description of the book)





Don't forget to enter the giveaway below!

I just added a few more books to my TBR pile, thanks!! I've been looking for a few good reads from outside my usual genres and this was perfect.

It's been years since I've read any fiction by Kingsolver. I have added this to my tbr list. I'm looking forward to reading Junot Diaz's latest.
