The One With The Giveaway (seriously!)

You all know I'm excited about this.

And you all know I'm tempted to force you all into a book club with me.

So - the lovely people who work with Philippa (remember, we're on a first name basis now) have given me the opportunity to start this little club of books, or at least give a few of YOU the opportunity to read this long-awaited (by me) book for FREE.

And I seriously mean amazing. I sat at lunch today (alone) and read this book while trying to eat at the same time - it did not go well, but I'm speeding through this book and will be ready to tell you all about it shortly. Don't worry, I won't giveaway the ending.

All you have to do is comment on this post, I'll do the "chosen randomly" thing - and when two people win, you'll receive your very own copy of The White Queen by Philippa Gregory in the mail! You have to tell me your name - and here's the kicker...

...a suggestion for the next book I should read.

You can live in Alabama, in Texas, or in China for all I care - as long as you're willing to comment and give me your mailing address when I ask for it. I'll let you keep commenting until the end of the week.

You can even follow The White Queen on Twitter, or become a fan on Facebook. Yay for social media.


  1. Duh,
    I want this book.
    -emmy, i'm a book nerd and there's a website called and you can sign up and track (and then rank) the books you have read, are currently reading, and want to read. it's fun.

  2. ditto dawson.
    read pat conroy's south of broad. it is supposed to be ny times #1 this week. or for that matter any of his books are wonderful. so glad you are enjoying this phillipa book!

  3. Undress Me In The Temple of Heaven by Susan Jane Gilman.

    - Rachel

  4. I want it too!! and I think you should read disgrace by JM Coetzee warning: it is depressing and more of a "boy" book, but it's really really good!

  5. i'm commenting again. i forgot to suggest a book. Persuasion by Jane Austen. It's my favorite of hers so far. I own it if you'd like to borrow it. I'm reading Mansfield Park right now, and was thinking about how i don't like it as much as Persuasion.....bummer.

  6. If you like biographies, I would recommend Zelda by Nancy Milford. It's about F. Scott Fitzgerald's crazy wife from Alabama. She was basically famous for being beautiful and partying with Alabama and Auburn fraternity boys.
