Book Giveaway: People of the Book


For the Book Giveaway Carnival hosted by Bookroom Reviews, I'm giving away a like-new, hardcover copy of People of the Book by Geraldine Brooks.

Here's a description of the book from Geraldine Brooks' website

Available now, from the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of March, an intricate, ambitious novel that traces the journey of a rare illuminated Hebrew manuscript from convivencia Spain to the ruins of Sarajevo, from the Silver Age of Venice to the sunburned rock faces of northern Australia.

Inspired by the true story of a mysterious codex known as the Sarajevo Haggadah, People of the Book is a sweeping adventure through five centuries of history. From its creation in Muslim-ruled, medieval Spain, the illuminated manuscript makes a series of perilous journeys: through Inquisition-era Venice, fin-de-siecle Vienna, and the Nazi sacking of Sarajevo. . .

For more info, visit the author's site.

To enter, just leave a comment by March 8, and I will announce the winner March 9.!
(US/Canada only)
