Clear Your Shelf Giveaway

For many of us, January is a time to start over, clean up and plan for the future.  Since I’m pretty sure I’ll be adding a few books to my shelves in 2013, I decided to hop on the Clear Your Shelf Giveaway Hop.  I went through my shelves and selected three books that I really enjoyed and would feel good about sharing with one of my readers.  I’ve chosen…

Atonement by Ian McEwan

Syndrome E by Frank Thilliez

The Martian Chronicles by Ray Bradbury

As you can see I’m offering a variety of genres:  historical fiction, thriller, and science fiction.  If you are like me, and like to read across genres, you can take all three books.  If you prefer one genre over another, you can choose one or two of the books. If you win, I would love to know what you think of these books after you’ve read them!

Enter the giveaway via the rafflecopter down below and help me clean my shelves!

Shelly Hammond - If I don’t really like a book I will freely share it with a friend or anyone else but if I really like a book I always want to share it, but I will buy another copy to share keeping a copy for myself on my shelf out of harms way 😐

Beth DiIorio - Great blog! This is my first time visiting. I do share my books with friends, with the understanding that they may keep it or pass it on to someone else. I am so excited about the three books you are offering, all of which I’ve never read and have wanted to (excellent authors). Thanks for participating in this hop.
Beth 🙂
