Book Giveaway


This is my 100th post and I thought we'd celebrate with a giveaway. Cool, yes? The prize is a book this time, Atonement by Ian McEwan. Here's the summary from Amazon in case you're not familiar with it:

The novel opens on a sweltering summer day in 1935 at the Tallis family’s mansion in the Surrey countryside. Thirteen-year-old Briony has written a play in honor of the visit of her adored older brother Leon; other guests include her three young cousins -- refugees from their parent’s marital breakup -- Leon’s friend Paul Marshall, and Robbie Turner, the son of the family charlady whose brilliantly successful college career has been funded by Mr. Tallis. Their elder daughter Cecilia is also present; she has just graduated from Cambridge and is at home for the summer, restless and yearning for her life to really begin. In the midst of the long hot afternoon, Briony happens to be watching from a window when Cecilia strips off her clothes and plunges into the fountain on the lawn as Robbie looks on. Later that evening, Briony thinks she sees Robbie attacking Cecilia in the library, she reads a note meant for Cecilia, her cousin Lola is sexually assaulted, and she makes an accusation that she will repent for the rest of her life.

Comment here for a chance to win this paperback. If you follow my blog or tweet about this giveaway leave me a separate comment letting me know. I will gladly ship anywhere in the world but please keep in mind that the book is in English!

Contest ends August 10. Good luck!
