May 4, 2009

  4. Transparency By Frances Hwang ISBN: 0316166936
  5. Strangers from a Different Shore By Ronald Takaki ISBN: 0316831301

Whew! Are you amazed? I sure am!!! I am so grateful to Hachette for letting me offer these up. Wish I can win 'em myself!

So. Without further ado. Here is the 4-1-1:
#1. You can enter this giveaway if you have a mailing address in the USA or Canada. P.O. Boxes do NOT count.

#2. To enter, comment & tell me, which set would you want to win, and why? You can only pick ONE! Multiple picks, or no picks, will disqualify your entry. As always, +1 entry for followers, +2 for sharing (that's +2 for every share). You can share this ANYWHERE, as long as I can check it out. Unfortunately, unless you're my fb friend, this means fb shares don't count. =( Don't worry about entering multiple comments for your shares, I am a geek & do keep track. (boy, I so need a life, eh?)

#3. I will pick winners after 6:00 p.m. CST on May 30th. I have up to 5 of each set to give away. There will be 10 winners total, picked one at a time. Complicated mathematical formulas will determine the number of each set available to give away, based on the preference mentioned in your entry. Is your head spinning yet? Mine is, & I'm the one who'll have to manage this. Yikes!!!

You have all month to enter. Just don't forget to do so! =) Oh, & yeah. Good luck! =D

マリアンナ said...

I would love love love to win the Asian books. I have been hunting down Asian authors lately. I am a HUGE fan of Japanese manga/comics and Korean manhwa/comics, I decided to be more grownup (haha) and try and read actual books with just words. It was tough finding stuff from my local library. I have grown fond of Korean-American literature (maybe because I am convinced I was a crabby Korean ahjumma/old lady in my past life).

auntrene said...

I would love the chance at the Mother's Day Giveaway!!
I think they would be books that I would enjoy reading as would my Mom. She is ill and reading is a huge part of her life. I try to keep her well stocked in great books. These would fit the bill.
Thanks for the chance.

I would choose the Asian Giveaway-although I should pick Latino as I have not explored that genre at all. Thanks for the giveaway.

gaby317 said...

This looks amazing and it's really hard to choose, but I'd like to sign up for the Latino Heritage giveaway. I've read some Latin American fiction in college but would like better exposure to more recent Latino literature.

Forgot to tell you why I choose the Asian Heritage books!!! Because I want to read them.
I love reading international fiction/non-fiction. I have been a bit lax on Asian books, although I recently read Waiting by Ha Jin.

They all sound good but I would love to win the Latino Book Month giveaway. The reason is that I would normally choose one of the other groups but I want to expand my cultural reading and I haven't read very many books from the Latino culture. Thanks for the chance!

I would love to win the Asian set. For three weeks in June 2005, I got to tour Japan as a Fulbright Memorial Fund Scholar. It was one of the best times of my life. I would like to read more about Asia as I would love to go back and visit some of the other countries.
