2013 False(B)logic Summer Book Giveaway!

The selection won’t be quite as vast as this picture suggests…

It’s that time of year when the sun doesn’t set until eight, children are out playing in yards, the air is filled with the sounds and smells of BBQ, and I give books away! If the book giveaway had corresponded with Fall the selection this year would have been massive. Alas, it didn’t and all the books D and I gave away in the two moves between this give away and the last are being enjoyed by strangers and the kinds of people who get their books from thrift stores.

What False(B)logic lacks in quantity we make up for in quality! This year I’m giving away, out of my personal collection, the following:

  • Red Mars by Kim Stanley Robinson (signed)
  • Selected Poems of Robert Frost
  • Amphigorey Too by Edward Gorey
  • Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie
  • Thinking Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman
  • Night Watch by Terry Pratchett
  • The Myth of Persecution by Candida Moss
  • Overheated by Andrew Guzman
  • Going Clear by Lawrence Wright

How does it work?

Simple! For the each post in the month of July a book will be given away. To enter your name in to the raffle for that book simply comment on the post! You may comment on multiple posts and win multiple books!

When does it start?

Right now! Just enter a comment below for a chance to win!
