September Book Giveaway


Each month the Book Trout swims through the shelves at Old Saratoga Books, our Upstate New York used bookstore, to select a free book for one of our loyal blogonauts. The August pick was Susan Sontag's "The Volcano Lover", and I am happy to announce that Elaina from Texas is the lucky winner. Congratulations Elaina!

For the September book giveaway, the Book Trout is offering a hardcover copy of Thrity Umrigar's "The Space Between Us". This novel is set in modern Bombay and contrasts the lives of two women: Bhima, a servant who toils away to see that her granddaughter is able to get a university education. She works in the household of Sera, a wealthy Parsi wife of an abusive husband, who is financing Bhima's granddaughter's education. When the granddaughter becomes pregnant, three women's lives are irrevocably changed.

To enter the book giveaway, simply leave a comment below by midnight of September 30, Eastern Standard Time, and the winner will be randomly selected from the participants. Good luck to all.
