The Novel Cure

I was just going to page through THE NOVEL CURE by Ella Berthoud and Susan Elderking, just to get a feel for what it is about. However…I found myself turning the pages over and over again, and loving every moment of it. What a great find! There is literally a book for everything. In fact, 751 books to cure what ails you. It’s all about books. A book for everyone and everything!

With delightful and amusing prose, THE NOVEL CURE just might cure what ails YOU! At any rate it will have you perusing far longer than you had planned to. And enjoying every moment of it. The perfect gift for the fiction lover on your list.

I have one copy for giveaway. Please leave a comment below. Please, no P.O. boxes, and only U.S. addresses. Good luck! I will choose my winner on Friday, December 19.

New Giveaway! Silver Bay by Jojo Moyes.

Jojo Moyes

Silver Bay

SILVER BAY, by Jojo Moyes, is her first novel. And I have one copy to give away to a lucky winner! Please leave a comment below telling me why you’d like to win. I can only accept U.S. addresses; no P.O. boxes, please.

SILVER BAY takes place on the Eastern coast of Australia in New South Wales.  There is a deep, dark, hidden secret. A romance. And more than a little speculation about an upscale resort coming to this pristine part of the country.  Moyes pulls out all the punches with her research about whales. And manages to bring us even more caring characters to think about long after the story is told.

Good luck to all of you! I will choose a winner on Saturday, December 13. Once again it’s the generous publishing people at Penguin who are to thank!
