August Giveaway

I know what you're going to say: What business have I, running a giveaway of the Month of Adventure books on my TBR Shelf when I haven't even finished reading the last one?

Yeah, well, it's summer. I've been on vacation. And sometimes fiction lures me away from nonfiction. But the giveaway must go on, so here's what we have on tap this month. Click on the titles to read my review of each (except for that last one):

WIND, SAND AND STARS
by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
adult adventure / aviation / memoir

WILD: FROM LOST TO FOUND ON THE PACIFIC CREST TRAIL
by Cheryl Strayed
adult adventure / memoir

A YEAR IN THE WORLD: JOURNEYS OF A PASSIONATE TRAVELER
by Frances Mayes
adult travel essay / memoir
Don't be put off by the fact that I laid this book aside; I wanted to travel light on vacation, so I brought my Kindle instead of this book. I've read about a third of it, though, and can attest that Frances Mayes's lovely, evocative writing is as strong as ever, and her descriptions of Spain make me want to hop on a plane to Madrid.










GIVEAWAY RULES:
1. U.S. entrants only, please.

  1. I would love to win Wind, Sand and Stars for my hubby. He is an old flyer and loves books like this one. It's hard to find books for him, so when I see one, I want it. Thanks for the chance to win.
