My First Book Giveaway

That’s right, time for the first A Variety of Words book giveaway. I am giving away a copy of The Lost Men in hardcover. If you haven’t read my previous post about this book it is the true story of a group of men who traveled to Antarctica in 1914 to lay depots of supplies for Ernest Shackleton’s trek across the entire continent. Lets just say that things didn’t go all that well with the expedition. I will be reviewing this book for Curled Up and have given it a 8.0 or 4 stars.

Here’s what you do, email me at the address you see to the right there. Use the title of the book, The Lost Men, as the subject and include your name. I will randomly draw a name and then email that person for their address. The deadline is Friday, January 25 at 9:00 p.m. PST. I will be mailing the book media rate to save a bit on costs. But hey, you’re getting the book for free so that’s okay right? Good luck!

    I love book giveaways. I desperately want to do some, but Maryland’s giveaway/contest laws are so ridiculously stringent that most contests don’t even allow Marylanders to enter. We’d pretty much have to pay a lawyer a couple hundred dollars to draft up official rules in order to do it without risking getting in trouble. Grrr. 😦
