It's my birthday -- and I'm giving away a copy of Turn of Mind, by Alice LaPlante

For the first time ever, both Indiespensable at Powell's Books and the Signed First Editions Club at Book Passage have sent me the same book -- Turn of Mind, by Alice LaPlante.  I definitely don't need two copies, so I'm giving one away.  It's never been read and is a signed copy. International is okay.

Here's what you need to do:

Leave a comment on this post (only one time, please) by August 12th, expressing an interest in claiming the book.  You do NOT have to become a follower -- as I've noted many times in the past, I love when people comment on my posts but I  started this blog for myself, not to gain followers.

I will use a random number generator to select the winner on August 13th, and will announce the lucky person's name the same day. 

That's it! 
good luck!


  1. Happy Birthday, Nancy! i hope you are doing something fun for yourself. But this one's for us! I'd love a copy of Alice LaPlante's Turn of Mind. Count me in.

    P.S. Having trouble getting a comment to post. Trouble with Google?

    No need to include me in the draw - although probably an amazing work, the Alzheimer's element of the storyline sounds a little too sad for me right now...

  10. Hello, happy birthday! I have had this book on my to be read list for quite a while so would love to be entered into your give away. Nancy - you don't mention if the giveaway is international, I am in the UK so if this is not included obviously count me out. I also think I might have missed the deadline anyway!! Many thanks, Ceri
