New Giveaway - Tim O'Brien!

This, ladies and gentlemen, may be the BEST book giveaway EVER. Yep. Thanks to the lovely people at Random House, I have four (count 'em - 4!) books to give away to one lucky winner. We are celebrating the 35th anniversary of theNational Book Award win for Going After Cacciato by Tim O'Brien with four brand-new reissues: Going After Cacciato, If I Die In a Combat Zone, Box Me Up and Ship Me Home, Northern Lights and Tomcat in Love. 

Although a Minnesota native, we happily claim O'Brien as a transplanted Texan - he's been teaching at Texas State University in San Marcos since 2003. He is probably best known for The Things They Carried (which was my introduction to this author almost 25 years ago). If you aren't familiar with his work you can check out my profile of the author here. An update to that profile: In June 2013, O'Brien was awarded the $100,000Pritzker Military Library Literature Award.

  1. You MUST be a follower of this site.
  2. Leave a comment on this post requesting entry in the contest. 
  3. This contest is open to everyone over the age of 13 and it is international. 
This giveaway begins NOW and continues through midnight June 12th. The winner will be chosen by random drawing and announced on this site June 14th. Good luck!

If only life was this simple. A blog post written by a 9 year old about how to be AWESOME in life.

Latest blog post is about family illness and thinking about my childhood. I could use some honest feedback on this one. Thanks for reading this! http://countrybumpkinreporter.blogspot.com/2013/10/mom.html

I can't remember if I've shared my blog, but now that I have another, I'll share them both :) I'm in the Houston area and my personal blog is http://velvet-rose.net. My friend and I also started a book blog together and it can be found at http://chapterbreak.wordpress.com :)

Hello, there!  Love our great state & love being a book-review blogger. I'm in central Texas but maybe moving north (in Texas, of course) soon. Glad to join.

Adventures at the pet store! I never thought mice would be cute but these little guys sure were. Especially since they were going in circle on the little mice wheel in the cage. Click here for video.
