I have a problem. If my book piles fall over I am going to be pinned and die underneath them. I have actually been fairly good the last couple of weeks, I haven’t stopped at the used bookstore and the library sorting hasn’t turned up anything interesting. Yay! I haven’t brought a new book into the house in 2 whole weeks! Woot! (I keep thinking about going on a book buying ban, but it is too scary and makes me sad to think about.)
So, I have been trying to let things go. The stuff I haven’t read, obviously can’t go yet, but I need to be pickier about what I keep. Soooo, I just realized I have TWO graphic novels The Tragical Comedy or Comical Tragedy of Mr. Punch by Neil Gaiman and Dave McKean (I was looking through my comic corner to try to put my Sandmans in order). I have decided to give one away. It is a soft cover, has been read and might be a tiny bit dusty. But, it is an oversized and gorgeous book. Just comment below and let me know what your favorite Neil Gaiman book or comic is, be sure to include your email address. If you have never read any Gaiman, let me know the name of one of your favorite authors. I will pull a name on Monday, August 20th.
A dark and frightening fully painted novella, MR. PUNCH tells the tale of a young boy’s loss of innocence results from a horrific confrontation with his past. Spending a summer at his grandfather’s seaside arcade, a troubled adolescent harmlessly becomes involved with a mysterious Punch and Judy Man and a mermaid-portraying woman. But when the violent puppet show triggers buried memories of the boy’s family, the lives of all become feverishly intertwined. With disturbing mysteries and half-truths uncontrollably unraveling, the young boy is forced to deal with his family’s dark secrets of violence, betrayal, and guilt. (description from goodreads.com)
You don’t have to be a subscriber, but it is nice. Cheers!
I will be mailing via US Post Office, limited to wherever the US government mails things. I cannot be held responsible if the book gets lost in the mail. I will feel really bad about it though! If you win and don’t respond within 48 hours, I will pick another winner.
Don’t forget that I have another giveaway running through the end of August. Enter to win Pledged, the 1st in a YA trilogy and an all around awesome book. Enter here.
