- Fizzy Thoughts: the book closet

the book closet

Friday, September 05, 2008

Occasionally (if I remember and if I'm not off on some exotic vacation), I will have a weird giveaway and pick a winner. This lucky person will have their pick of one book from my book closet (seriously, these are books that have been relegated to the closet). Don't get too excited...these aren't shiny new books. They are gently loved books previously read (or not) by me. But don't worry...I don't smoke and I don't have any pets and I don't fling books across the room in disgust. The worst thing you might find is a chocolate smear, but that's only because books like chocolate chip cookies. Really.

So what kind of books am I talking about?

The Sister (please note, this is an ARC)
Angelina's Children
Dream Homes
Mrs. Dalloway
The Gangster We Are All Looking For
In the Castle of the Flynns
The Lost Legends of New Jersey
Bound South
Caspian Rain
Lies My Teacher Told Me (audiobook)
A Long Stone's Throw (audiobook)

So that's the list. I will occasionally add books, and I reserve the right to take books off of the list, because I'm fickle like that.

My comment today is that books like any type of junk food-preferably chocolate but they like chips and tacos too. lol.

Have a great weekend!

softdrink said...

i listened to Peace Like a River on CD while at work. i enjoyed it!

Hey, I have book closets (notice plural), too. I tried Peace Like a River and gave up on it. Then it was my family book club pick. I try to always read the whole book if it's a club pick, and this time made it all the way through and loved it. Some books have their specific times to be read, I guess.

What a great idea. Oh, I made it through your 100 things. I usually read the end of a book too.

Bookfool said...

Well, chocolate smears are acceptable, I suppose. I tried to read 1000 days in Venice and found it pathetic and dull.

Dewey said...

I love this idea for giveaways. :) And I love your generosity in general. I noticed how many prizes you gave and how much sponsoring you did in the readathon.

Bookfool said...

How many hours late am I?

In a real sense, people who have read good literature have lived more than people who cannot or will not read. It is not true that we have only one life to live; if we can read, we can live as many more lives and as many kinds of lives as we wish. ~S.I. Hayakawa

The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.
~St. Augustine

Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness.
~Mark Twain
