LITERARY GIVEAWAY BLOG HOP- 2/913-2/13/13

Welcome to another blog hop giveaway!


Literary Giveaway Blog Hop




Things have been crazy around my house these past few weeks. I haven't gotten any reading done and I'm really feeling the lack. I had to return a book to the library unopened that I'd waited a long time to get and couldn't renew. And I'm almost at that point with another library book that I'd been looking forward to but haven't even touched. I just bought a book I'm dying to read and I've won a couple books recently. . . I really need a vacation.

But that's not what this post is about. This post is about the exciting literary giveaway blog hop hosted by Leeswammes' Blog

This is the seventh literary giveaway hop. The rules are simple. The giveaway has to be book related and the book has to have literary merit but that merit can be broadly defined.

Isn't this a wonderful idea for a giveaway hop? I can't wait to see the books being showcased!

For my giveaway (open to US and Canadian readers), I'm offering a copy of The Housekeeper and the Professor by Yoko Ogawa. I loved this book! My review is here.

 
The goodreads blurb is:
 
He is a brilliant math Professor with a peculiar problem--ever since a traumatic head injury, he has lived with only eighty minutes of short-term memory.
 
She is an astute young Housekeeper, with a ten-year-old son, who is hired to care for him.
And every morning, as the Professor and the Housekeeper are introduced to each other anew, a strange and beautiful relationship blossoms between them. Though he cannot hold memories for long (his brain is like a tape that begins to erase itself every eighty minutes), the Professor’s mind is still alive with elegant equations from the past. And the numbers, in all of their articulate order, reveal a sheltering and poetic world to both the Housekeeper and her young son. The Professor is capable of discovering connections between the simplest of quantities--like the Housekeeper’s shoe size--and the universe at large, drawing their lives ever closer and more profoundly together, even as his memory slips away.
 
The Housekeeper and the Professor is an enchanting story about what it means to live in the present, and about the curious equations that can create a family.
