Free Book Giveaway from the Book Trout

Last month I announced that The Book Trout would be giving away a free copy of Sheridan Hay's great novel, The Secret of Lost Things, here at the Book Trout. All entrants had to do was a post a comment about our original posting. We received nine entries, so I had Sam the Store Cat determine the winner by placing nine books on our front table and seeing which one he would park his fat and fuzzy behind on. The winner was Lucky Number 2! Congratulations to Kathryn, who will be notified posthaste.

The Book Trout has lots of love to spread throughout the blogosphere, so I have decided that this contest will continue as a monthly book giveaway. On the first day of each month, I will pluck a new title from the shelves at Old Saratoga Books, our used and rare bookstore, and offer to ship it anywhere in the world to one of my loyal readers. All you need to do is leave a comment at the end of this post by June 30th, midnight, to enter. I will have another highly scientific and random method of determining next month's free book winner, so don't all scramble for the second berth below. In the meantime, Sam and I will be in consultation about a new and improved Prize Patrol methodology.

For June's monthly Book Trout freebie I am offering a copy of Anita Diamant's The Red Tent, a novel which fleshes out the story of Dinah, in the Bible's Book of Genesis. She is the daughter of four mothers, Jacob's quartet of wives, and is reared lovingly, if sternly, by them. This book has received numerous critical acclaims and many a book club has picked this for a reading selection. Good luck everyone.......

Hey just stopping by. Contests are always a great idea. and especially if that involves books. For us bibliophiles there's nothing like winning a book.
