Free Books! (Round 7)

For every ten books I read, I’ll hold a book giveaway. Here’s how to claim a free book:

  • Check out the list of books up for grabs.  There is only one copy of each book available (I am giving away my used copy of each book).
  • If you see one you want, comment on this page.  Your comment must include the name of the book you want, and at least a word or two about the country that the book concerns.  First person to comment gets the book.
  • I’ll mail the book out to you (at no cost you you whatsoever) if you have an address within the continental United States.  The book will ship out at book rate, which means it might take ten or more days to reach you.
  • Keep in mind that most of the time I buy my books used, which means they may be marked up, covers bent, etc.  Book condition will be variable.

Here’s the current round of books up for grabs:

    • Sorry…Rozie beat you by 7 minutes. I checked out some pictures of the bouldering…and read someone’s blog that said over 30,000 problems! Bouldering paradise!

  2. but more importantly… did i miss “Marzi: A Memoir”? did you already give that one away? if not… i’m commenting and i think Poland sounds cold and depressing… i am not excited to go to Poland.

    • Oh no! I am not being a good friend. I borrowed Marzi from the Missoula Public Library, so it’s not mine to give away. I agree that Poland doesn’t inspire travel plans. Stick with Fontainebleau.

  3. The Yacoubian Building. Egypt is a mystery to me. The Arab Spring made it clear to the world the Egypt is more than just pyramids and tourism. I’d like to learn more about their country.

    • The Yacoubian Building is yours! National Geographic published a fascinating article on Egypt in May called “Egypt in the Moment” about how Arab Spring is impacting everyday Egyptians. I enjoyed reading that story and the book in tandem.

      • Yes – you should have already received an email from me last night about that, but just in case you didn’t, email your address to worldlitup@gmail.com. So you AND a friend will be reading the book? Cool.

  5. I’m really interested in Kamchatka! I have been trying to stick to reading a book from each country too…inspired by you! However, buying from library book sales etc I can’t always find something to fit my list and tend to gravitate back to my old familiar reading zones. Kamchatka looks especially touching to me as I have a 10 year old son. My first images of Argentina that come to mind are always the vibrant pictures of the festivals I see everywhere and I know so little about their history it’s shameful!

    • Kamchatka is yours! I hope you get a kick out of the narrator and his little brother. Just shoot your physical address to me in an email to worldlitup@gmail.com and I will mail the book out to you. I can relate to having trouble finding used books that fit a criteria…the reason I don’t offer some of the books I read in my giveaways is that I’ve checked them out from the library!
