I cleaned out my house this summer, in a big way. We're talking moving furniture, crawling under things with vacuum attachments and making use of dumpsters. I'm in the habit of grabbing books I don't really need, particularly at library clearing sales. I can't STAND to see a book go in the trash. So you guys are going to benefit from that here in the Book A Day Giveaway. Each of the books I'm giving away is not new (with the exception of the big, fun kicker on Friday). These books are either former library books or reading circle copies. Not shiny, not new - but still a good read.
On FRIDAY I will be giving away a SIGNED copy of THE WARRIOR HEIR by Cinda Williama Chima. In order to win this nice little cherry-on-top prize, you must've entered to win one of the books given away earlier in the week.
In order to participate in the Book A Day Giveaway all you have to do is a be a follower of my blog, and comment on the post of the book you'd like to have. Remember, in order to win the signed Cinda Williams Chima book you must've entered yourself (commented) on a book from earlier in the week.
Winners will be chosen by random.org and will be announced at the next Saturday Slash!
"There was more to do than music, of course. She was a good human."
That's what Dolores's brother Jimmy thinks about her when she's seven years old and can scream Nirvana lyrics at the top of her lungs in a voice just as angry and knowing as any teenager's. Dolores is a force to be reckoned with. As she grows up through these seven stories, you can call her what you want -- strangely beautiful, weird, quirky, a loner, brave -- it doesn't matter. Because Dolores always will be, quite simply, Dolores.
