hosted by I Am A Reader, Not A Writer. Basically, the idea is to showcase printed books, and only printed books. No eBooks allowed, no matter how popular they are now-a-days.
As such, I'm going to be giving away a print copy of one of my all-time favorite books, your choice between Howl's Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones (reviewed), or Coraline by Neil Gaiman. Both of those books are special, are all-ages, are full of magic, and have film adaptations. They're charming reads for both children and adults, and in the case of Coraline, not going too far into the realm of creepy for the average kiddo.
How do you win? Easy. Just fill in some information in my handy-dandy Google Form below! You've got until the very last minute of February 7th to enter, so don't wait! Since this is a giveaway hop, you've also got many chances to win myriad other books from other awesome bloggers, so check out this linky list to see where you can visit for more. We were all given freedom of choice for books to give away, so you should definitely poke around.
Edit: the giveaway signup has been removed - contest is over! I will be contacting the winner sometime on Friday. Thanks to everyone who entered my contest!
Coraline wishes for something exciting to happen with her boring life (and her too-busy parents). One day, she finds a hidden door which led her to a different, yet familiar world altogether, inhabited by her Other Mother, a creature who wants to give her buttons for eyes and whisk her away. She also meets the other children who had been trapped by the creature in the past, and it's up to her to set them free.
About Howl's Moving Castle:
Sophie has a gift for enchanting things by merely speaking to them. She can berate a hat into making its wearer seem more attractive, even. One day though, an angry witch curses Sophie into looking like an old hag -- and worse, she is unable to speak of it. Sophie seeks out the wizard Howl and barges into his life in hopes he can help her get back to normal. Needless to say, Sophie gets way more than she bargained for.
Thanks to everyone who stops by my blog, and good luck to all who enter!
