Halloween Book Giveaway
During last month's book sale madness, I bought a second copy of Christopher Morley's The Haunted Bookshop (sequel to his delightful Parnassus on Wheels). I did not do so for the pleasure of having two copies nestled together on my shelves, though I confess that I have been known to hoard multiple copies of favourite books in the past. I picked it up because I suspected that there are fellow Morley fans out there in the blog world who might like to have a copy of it. Though not a particularly spooky tale (the haunting is perpetrated by "the ghosts of all great literature" that take up occupancy in bookshops and libraries the world over), the title seemed to me to make it the perfect book for a giveaway on the eve of Halloween.
If you want The Haunted Bookshop, let me know either via email or in the comments section below. While you're at it, if you fancy doing so, please share the story of your happiest recent book sale find. If more than one person expresses an interest in the book, I'll do a draw on Friday. I'm happy to send it anywhere in the world, so don't let your location prevent you from entering your name. After the draw, I'll contact the winner for his or her mailing address.
Happy book hunting and book haunting!
