Book Give Away

While I have yet to accumulate any books to give away, Booking Mama is giving away a copy of The Uncommon Reader. It looks to be an interesting read, and if you leave her a comment, you just might win. So head on over, and if you want, you can tell her I sent you! :)

Here's a description of the book, as taken from the back cover:

When her corgis stray into a mobile library parked near Buckingham Palace, the Queen feels duty-bound to borrow a book. Discovering the joy of reading widely (from J. R. Ackerley, Jean Genet, and Ivy Compton-Burnett to the classics) and intelligently, she finds that her view of the world changes dramatically. Abetted in her newfound obsession by Norman, a young man from the royal kitchens, the Queen comes to question the prescribed order of the world and loses patience with the routines of her role as monarch. Her new passion for reading initially alarms the palace staff and soon leads to surprising and very funny consequences for the country at large.
