More New Books!

So I think we have all established that I like to receive free books if I can. :-) I received more fun mail the other day. My Bookmarks Magazine arrived, as well as a copy of Lauren Weisberger's Everyone Worth Knowing. Today, I received Michael Chabon's The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Klay. A little bit ago, I was sent a chain letter of sorts from a friend of mine. The instructions said to pass the letter on to 6 more people and send one paperback book to the previous person. You then have the potential to receive up to 36 books from various people. Now, I usually scoff at chain letters. I would typically ignore it, throw it in the recycling or delete it from my email. But this one A) had me intrigued and B) gave me the potential to receive free books! Okay, you got me! I've received 2 books so far and that's far better than receiving zero!

I thought I'd also mention a few giveaways that are currently going on:

Heather over at Book Addiction is giving away 5 different Jodi Picoult books!
Dewey at The Hidden Side of a Leaf is giving away an entire BOX of 14 books!!
Amanda at A Patchwork of Books is giving away 5 copies of The Adoration of Jenna Fox by Mary E. Pearson.

Happy Reading!

When you mentioned chain letter to me, I was like, ugh. But I got it and immediately sent the letters/book out. Partly because I like free books, but I'm also really intrigued with what I might get, and from whom. I get stuck in book ruts and sometimes it's nice to be given a book I might not have picked up on my own (like my ER book from LibraryThing, which I LOVED, but hadn't heard of).

Kavalier and Klay is really different. My book club read it a couple of years ago, so I'll be interested to see what you think. I ended up enjoying it overall.
