The Great ARC Giveaway

March has arrived, Spring is getting closer, hurrah! I am marching forth this March with a few bookish announcements.

First, we at Chumley & Pepys Books are having a March Forth Sale on our Literature catalogue, all books 20% off for the entire month of March. If you like buying used, peruse our collection!

Secondly, I have just discovered the wonderful Book Giveaway Carnival being hosted at Bookroom Reviews. I've also been doing a little springcleaning. There are quite a few ARCs laying around the house, and it is time to share them out with another giveaway! Here's how it will work -- I have so many that I am putting them into groupings. If you are interested please comment and let me know which groupings you would like to join the drawing for. You can put your name in for any or all of them, but can only win one. This giveaway is open to anyone around the world. I will draw the winning names on Sunday, March 9 (when we Spring ahead into Daylight Savings Time, losing an hour but perhaps gaining a book??)



Group A - Canadian Women



Exit Lines / Joan Barfoot
At a loss for words / Diane Schoemperlen
Turtle Valley / Gail Anderson-Dargatz



Group B - Canadian Men



The Retreat / David Bergen
Cockroach / Rawi Hage
October / Richard B. Wright



Group C - YA



The Loser's Guide to life and love / A.E. Cannon
Another kind of cowboy / Susan Juby
Finding Cassidy / Laura Langston



Group D - The Harpercollins Group



Atmospheric Disturbances / Rivka Galchen
The Sister / Poppy Adams
Out Backward / Ross Raisin

  20. "Canadian man
    At your service from the land of the chill
    If I can't warm you baby nobody will
    A genuine Canadian man

    Strong and free
    That's the true north
    And baby that's me
    I'll salute you as long as need be
    Your genuine Canadian man

    ...

    Canadian man
    That's me the ice breaker supreme
    Forget your American dream
    And wake up to Canadian man"
