So the randomizer has chosen from the entries I received and these five people will be my reading overlords for next week. In truth, I can’t wait. I’ve loved this idea since it first struck me way back when, six months and a different house ago. The best thing for me right now — really, the very best thing — would be to stick my nose in a book (or a series of books) and leave it there for an extended period of time.
I expect to come out on the other side having led five new mini-lives or filled to the corners of my hippocampus (Yes, my hippocampus has corners. I got it at IKEA.) with new information. I’ll be smarter and more well-rounded (corners notwithstanding) and refreshed after a hiatus from chasing my own tale, er… tail.
I’ve contacted all five winners and will add each book choice as they come in. Congratulations (and big thanks!) to:
Monday, January 21st – neednewspace – Mr. Penumbra’s 24 Hour Bookstore by Robin Sloan
Tuesday, January 22nd – Lorne Eckersley – The Golden Spruce by John Vaillant
Wednesday, January 23rd – Sebastian Fernandez – The Guards by Ken Bruen
Thursday, January 24th – Melysah – Shadow of a Dead Star by Michael Shean
Friday, January 25th – Christina Brown – American Gods by Neil Gaiman
I’ll read them in the order the randomizer commanded and post a little recap of each as I finish. Presumably you’ll forgive me if they aren’t full on, detailed book reviews — I’m busy! I’ve got another book to read tomorrow! Wheeeeeee!
(Pssssst! If you didn’t win and would still like an ARC of THREE GRAVES FULL, Gallery Books is hosting a giveaway of 40 copies on Goodreads thru January 31st. Click here to redirect to Goodreads!)
