The Literary Giveaway Blog Hop
Hey, you know what time it is? Time for me to give away another book!
I know you're dying to read it now, so here's what you have to do. Don't worry about being a follower or anything like that (although, you know, don't feel like you can't follow... do what your heart tells you to) but leave me a comment with your email address (seriously, if you don't leave your email address, I'm not even entering you, because that shit tires me out) and some kind of reason why you're awesome and so will be able to appreciate the awesomeness of this book. Sounds good? I know. A free book! *ADDS* This giveaway is open internationally, and will close at 12pm on 31st October (known in the normal world as Halloween).
Annnnd, that's about all I have to tell you! Make sure you go and visit all the other giveaways, and have fun hopping! Over and out.

Okay, so you actually sent me this book already for RAK so I'm not entering, but I just had to say KUDOS FOR THE DOUBLE HELPING OF SKARSGARD. :PReplyDelete

I have never read Wilkie, so would love to try!ReplyDelete
thanks for the international give away:-)
WILKIE! Please yes maybe? firstname.lastname@example.orgReplyDelete
I'd love to read this! Thanks for the giveaway! :)ReplyDelete
As someone who is trying to read more classics and hasn't read any WILKIE I'm entering! Why am I awesome? Because I'm Canadian and we're all awesome! (Though I think that statement also goes against every sense of Canadian humility.)ReplyDelete
good books and a cup of tea (at) live (dot) com
Oooh oooh, I've been hearing such great things about this book lately and I've never read it! (Gasp, I know!)ReplyDelete
Good grief, forgot my email addy: Jhartling74@aol.comDelete
I have never heard of this author. I would love to read this book. email@example.comReplyDelete
I have never read Wilkie Collins but he's one my daughter's favorite writers.ReplyDelete
Please count me in. Would definitely appreciate the awesomeness of this book as it would go straight to the top of my to-read pile and with two small children you can imagine how tall that pile is... Thanks! Liene @ LLucane at yahoo dot comReplyDelete
GIFS!!! I love the gifs.ReplyDelete
I haven't read Wilkie Collins yet (gasp!) but I have two books on my TBR. I'm sure that list will grow.
How can I justify being awesome in a comment? This would take some effort. I'll just throw in some words and hope one of them is good enough. English major. Harry Potter lover. Member of The Classics Club. Writer. I live with Severus Snape.

Have read this book, so please, don't enter me just here to say Hi'ReplyDelete
What's it like to be a human
the bird asked
I myself don't know
it's being held prisoner by your skin
while reaching infinity
being a captive of your scrap of time
while touching eternity
being hopelessly uncertain
and helplessly hopeful
being a needle of frost
and a handful of heat
breathing in the air
and choking wordlessly
it's being on fire
with a nest made of ashes
while filling up on hunger
it's dying without love
it's loving through death
That's funny said the bird
and flew effortlessly up into the air.
For someone who has read a lot of crime, mystery, and suspense books, I'm ashamed to admit I haven't read Wilkie Collins' works! And he has been taunting me for quite a while now! (Oh man!)ReplyDelete
Thanks for the giveaway! kxw116[at]gmail.comReplyDelete

Ooo...Eric Northman! Yes please!
Thanks for the giveaway!

Thanks for the chance!ReplyDelete

Have you read Drood by Dan Simmons? It's a fictional story told by Wilkie Collins about Dickens. It was very good. I've been curious about Wilie's work since reading that book.ReplyDelete

So I am totally curious about him now. I am going to add a few of his books to my To Be Read list, including this one.ReplyDelete
Thanks for the giveaway and the recommendation.
This is one of my favorite books. I read it probably 15 years ago (or more!). It's definitely due for a re-read. :)ReplyDelete

As a brand new follower, I like your posts. Wilkie Collins is a author that I keep circling around;knowing that its a classic must read and then I get sidetracked by other classics that I read(Hemingway, Capote(love the short story about fruit cakes) so now to get a chance to discover Wilkie Collins through your suggestion to read "Woman in White" would settle me and satisfy my desire to enjoy a classic. I appreciate the chance to have a copy come to me! I am a reader. I promote reading by sharing books and am pro-Library in these economic shakey times. I am sad when the Library budgets are slashed and hours cut and employees work less hours. I believe reading is the key to success.ReplyDelete
I would love to read this book! :) And, I loved the post. It made me laugh out loud (more than once!)ReplyDelete
Thank you for a great giveaway! :)
