Canadian Giveaway: Awards Prize Pack!

The only thing more awesome about being able to give away books, is being able to give away good books– amazing books– and I have a definite batch of those to giveaway today! There will be ONE Canadian winner and they will get THREE amazing award-nominated Canadian titles published by Thomas Allen & Son.

The books up for grabs are:
  • Whirl Away by Russell Wangersky– made the short list for Giller Prize.
  • Siege 13 by Tamas Dobozy– nominated for Rogers Writers’ Trust Fiction Award and the Governor General’s Award for Fiction. One of the stories in the collection also won the 2011 O. Henry Prize for Fiction.
  • Half Blood Blues by Esi Edugyan– incredibly, a SIGNED COPY is up for grabs. This book was one of my favourites last year, you can read the review on In The Next Room here. And I wasn't the only one that loved it. It was nominated and won a huge list of prizes, including winning the Giller, and being short-listed for Man Booker. Way to make Canada proud!

This contest ends November 5th at midnight. To enter use the Rafflecopter giveaway form:

  1. Hmmm, a recommendation for a book by a Canadian author. :P Well, you've already read Kelley Armstrong so I don't need to recommend her (but you should totally read her adult series one day too ;D), and since I was already talking about him today, I think you might like The Logogryph by Thomas Wharton. It's a bit hard to get your hands on a copy though, but it's definitely an interesting story....or rather a collection of very short bits. It isn't really a conventional narrative, like at all. :P

  7. Not sure if the post about Half Blood Blues here so I will just post my thoughts here. The review has me interested in reading this book. Have heard the name of the book before but did not know much about the story unil now.
