”GiveThis weekend, it’s the second Literary Blog-Hop run by Judith at Leeswaammes.   The aims are to help people discover more great blogs, and spread a lot of book-love by running giveaways.  The list of participating blogs, of which there are 73, is below. There are loads I’ve never seen before, plus a few familiar friends – so if you have time do visit some new blogs and join in their giveaways too…

But before you do that – here’s my giveaway…

I found three books in my piles of which I had two copies – all new too!  How could I have managed to acquire the same book twice three times?  The books are all as new, and the titles on offer are:

  • Ghost Light by Joseph O’Connor – Set in Dublin in 1907, it’s a novel of theatre life featuring the Irish playwright John Synge. I’ve read good things about this book, but have yet to read it myself.
  • Adverbs by Daniel Handler – who is the author of the Lemony Snicket books. This novel for grown-ups is similarly quirky, actually very quirky, but I liked it a lot. See my review here.
  • Crome Yellow by Aldous Huxley. This was his first novel, published in 1921. Set at a house-party in the country – a classic.  This edition has a introduction by Malcolm Bradbury.
Just leave a comment saying which book you would like to be in the draw for.  I will send worldwide (surface outside Europe).  Oh, and if you want to own up to any books you’ve managed to buy twice without realising, do let me know I’m not alone.  The giveaway closes at the end of June 29th.
