A two-book, Booker Prize longlist giveaway. Be there. International is okay!

Okay, the prizes are not all that amazing, but I've got two books to give away.  I promised my husband Larry I'd keep the books flowing out as long as new ones were coming in (seriously -- my house is all window and little wall space so we suffer from storage issues).  So in today's sweep I figured maybe someone would want a double package from the Booker Prize longlist. Far to Go by Alison Pick, and Half-Blood Blues, by Esi Edugyan.  I'm on the fence about Jamrach's Menagerie or it may have even been three.

Anyway, all you have to do if you want these books is to leave a comment (one per person, if you please) with contact info of some sort, by Monday, October 24th. I will select someone via on Tuesday, October 25th.  I would make this go longer except that I'm once again off to Seattle for a couple of weeks on the 27th.  International is okay.  Nothing else is necessary ... no follower signups, no nothing except a comment with contact info.  My books need homes, so please enter!
