Givaway: The Art of Disappearing

It's time to get my Guilt List under control. And one thing I can do is pass on to an appreciative reader a book that I do not think I will get to:

The Art of Disappearing by Ivy Pochoda (ARC copy)

This book is on tour this month and is very popular.  Caitlin on chaotic compendiums has a terrific review describing the book and explaining why she liked it.  Wendy at Musings of a Bookish Kitty also gave it a good review.

It looks like it would be very, very good for readers who enjoy a little magic in their stories. That does not happen to be me. I have a very low tolerance for magic realism and a book about actual magic is not my cup of tea.  But I figure there are others out there who will enjoy it and review it, so I am putting it up for grabs.


The contest is open until Sunday, October 17, 2010. To enter, do any or all of the following, but you must leave a comment for each one:

1. Leave a comment on this post. You must include a way to contact you (email or website address in your comment or available in your profile). If I can't find a way to contact you I will draw another winner. (1 entry)

2. Blog about this giveaway. (Posting the giveaway on your sidebar is also acceptable.) Leave a separate comment with a link to your post. (1 entry)

3. Subscribe to my rss feed, follow me on blogger, or subscribe via email (or tell me if you already are a subscriber or follower). Leave a separate comment for this. (1 entry)

4. Tweet this post on Twitter. Leave me a separate comment with your twitter user name. (1 entry)

5. Stumble this blog, digg it, technorati fave it, or link it on facebook. Leave a separate comment. (1 entry)

There are a lot of ways to enter (maximum of five entries), but you must LEAVE A SEPARATE COMMENT for each one or they will not count. I will use to pick the winners from the comments.

This contest is open to entries from the U.S. and Canada only, no PO Boxes. The deadline for entry is midnight in your time zone, a week from Sunday, October 17, 2010. I will draw and post the winner's name on Monday, October 18, 2010.
