Blogoversary/Birthday Giveaway #1: Thankful for Books Giveaway Hop: November 8th to 13th

Hi, everyone!

Welcome to Stop #110 of the Thankful for Books Giveaway Hop!

This blog hop is being hosted by Kathy at I'm A Reader, Not A Writer and Tristi Pinkston.

I am celebrating both my 2nd Year Blogoversary and my Birthday this month, so I am celebrating with some giveaways! This giveaway will be known as "Blogoversary/Birthday Giveaway #1."

Details of my giveaway:

I just got back from the bookstore and picked up two copies of this book: One for myself and one to give away! I have heard that it is great!!

Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters co-author Ben H. Winters is back with an all-new collaborator, legendary Russian novelist Leo Tolstoy, and the result is Android Karenina an enhanced edition of the classic love story set in a dystopian world of robots, cyborgs, and interstellar space travel.

As in the original novel, our story follows two relationships: the tragic adulterous romance of Anna Karenina and Count Alexei Vronsky, and the much more hopeful marriage of Konstantin Levin and Kitty Shcherbatskaya. These four, yearning for true love, live in a steampunk-inspired 19th century of mechanical butlers, extraterrestrial-worshiping cults, and airborne debutante balls. Their passions alone would be enough to consume them-but when a secret cabal of radical scientific revolutionaries launches an attack on Russian high society's high-tech lifestyle, our heroes must fight back with all their courage, all their gadgets, and all the power of a sleek new cyborg model like nothing the world has ever seen."

Filled with the same blend of romance, drama, and fantasy that made the first two Quirk Classics New York Times best sellers, Android Karenina brings this celebrated series into the exciting world of science fiction.

Since I am shipping this one myself and the book is quite thick (541 pages), I am going to have to limit this one to Canada/US mailing addresses only.
