BBAW giveaway #1: Quirky nonfiction

Book Blogger Appreciation Week button

In honour of Book Blogger Appreciation Week, which runs from September 14 to 18, I will announce a giveaway every day from September 14 to 17 for a total of four giveaways! Each giveaway has the same rules.

HOW IT WORKS:
Only one book will be given away each day.
The winner may choose from the two books offered.
All books are new paperbacks shipped directly to the winner at my expense.
Since the books will be purchased from The Book Depository, I reserve the right to change the books offered should the ones mentioned no longer be available or should they become too expensive.
Giveaways are open worldwide.*
The deadline for all giveaways is Sunday, September 27, 2009, at 11:59 PM, Eastern Time.
You can only win one of the four giveaways but you may enter as many as you want!

Note that since there’s so much going on this week, I’ve edited this post to extend this giveaway by one week.

TO ENTER:
+1 for commenting on this post and mentioning the book you are interested in (only one!)
+1 for being a follower or subscribing to my blog (please mention this in your comment)
+1 for each relevant comment made on any of my book reviews
(+2 if you happen to be the first person to comment on a review [hint: the only reviews without comments were posted in July 2008])
(please note that each comment can only be counted towards one giveaway!)
+1 for spreading the word about this giveaway (leave me a link in your comment)

BOOK CHOICE FOR GIVEAWAY #1:


The Dangerous Joy of Dr. Sex and Other True Stories by Pagan Kennedy (read my review)

The Wishing Year: A House, a Man, My Soul by Noelle Oxenhandler (I haven’t written my review yet but you can read one at Books on the Brain or She Is Too Fond of Books)

Don’t forget to (a) let me know which book you’d like to win and (b) make sure there’s some way for me to get in touch with you if you do win. Failure to comply with either of these rules will disqualify you from this giveaway.

Thank you for reading my blog!

*Note that in this case “worldwide” refers only to the countries on this list. I apologize in advance if your country isn’t on this list.
