Happy 75th Anniversary Penguin & Giveaway


Today is the official 75th anniversary of the launch of Penguin Books. Wow! Congratulations Penguin!!

To help celebrate, Penguin Books asked me to select a book from a list of 75 titles. I was so thrilled to see that one of the choices was The Shadow of the Wind, by Carlos Ruiz Zafón. (see contest details below)




As I have said before, this is one of my favorite books and I am so happy that I can offer it as a giveaway. Please take a look at their dedicated website for more details about their summer celebrations. I want to thank Penguin for this giveaway opportunity and again Happy 75th Anniversary!

From the description and the reviews on GoodReads, it sounds like I'd love this book. It's basically about books, so how could I not??

I read this when it first came out and I loved it! I'll be reading The Prince of Mist soon so I'd love to be able to re-read this one first.

Shadow of the Wind is one of my all-time favorite books. I don't have a personal copy, and would love to have one.

I loved this book so much, I "had" to go to Beautiful Barcelona to find all the places in the book.

Please consider me for this giveaway. THANKS.
