  1. Thanks for the giveaway, Colleen! So nice you are participating in the Literary Giveaway Blog hop. Hope lots of people are hopping by!

  2. This form does not show in its entirety here. This is my email address: I would choose The Corrections.

  3. I didn't see a place for an email address, so I'm not sure if it's required or not. So, just in case, here's mine:

  4. Thanks for sharing! No need to enter me though: I've got both books on my shelf -- loved Life of Pi but am sort of dreading The Corrections...

    My international literary giveaway is up too -- are you in for some nineteen eighties nostalgia?

  5. Thanks for the giveaway!

    I would advice Girl in translation by Jean Kwok. I loved it.

  6. Thank you for the giveaway! Here are my suggestions: The Shadow of the Wind, by Carlos Ruiz Zafon and The Girl Who Stole Books by Markus Zusak. Both are wonderful!

  7. I have wanted to read these both for a long time, so I'd love to win either. Thanks so much! :)

  8. I would suggest the road by cormac mccarthy.

  9. Thank you for this great giveaway! I thought The Corrections was great but I had trouble with Life of Pi, but these are both wonderful giveaways.

    Thank you!
