Blogiversary or blogoversary? I've been doing this four four years now, and I still don't know. Spell check doesn't like either one of them. Oh, well, it's okay with the word GIVEAWAY, and hopefully some of you will be too.
I'm not only celebrating four years of Chainreading/Book Clutter. I am also excited that I have applied and have been accepted at a local university and will finally be going back to school next fall. I've been doing some independent study courses in the meantime, but I am looking forward to being in a classroom. I'm trying my very hardest to become an intelligent person before fall comes so they don't kick me out. I've just typed the word "fall" without capitalizing it twice, and I think maybe because it's a season it's supposed to be capitalized? Is it? I have so much to learn before Fall.
I'll be majoring in History, and so this giveaway is offering books that I've tagged as Historical Fiction on Goodreads and have given a rating of 4 or 5 stars. (Remember, my ratings are based on personal enjoyment, so some of these choice might be crap, but it's crap I enjoyed.) Some of these may be loosely termed "historical fiction." I don't want to start any discussions or debates here, because I will probably lose. These are basically books that helped me to better understand a particular period of time in the past--a year ago, a hundred years ago, a thousand years ago, antiquity.
Hmmm. I notice that this list is seriously lacking in "bodice-rippers." Sorry about that.
1. In a comment, tell me which book you would choose from the list on my right sidebar, or give me a recommendation for a work of historical fiction.
2. Leave an email address so that I can contact you if you win.
3. This giveaway is international if Book Depository ships for free to your country, and if they have the book you're interested in.
4. The giveaway ends December 10, 2011, and I will notify the winner a day or two after that.
Good luck and thanks for visiting!
