*** REVISED Giveaway: The Eye of the World ***

*** UPDATE *** I think that everyone was scared off by the length of this book and the short time available to read it, so I'm changing the contest. Please scroll down for the revised entry rules - thanks!

~~~~

As you may recall, I'll be the featured blogger on That's How I Blog on Feb. 9. The new time for my show is 10pm EST (to make it easier for the West Coasters and to allow the East Coasters to watch LOST - yay!). The book I chose to discuss is an old favorite of mine, THE EYE OF THE WORLD, by Robert Jordan.


Thanks to Dot at Tor Books, I can offer a copy of this book to one of my readers no matter where in the world you live, provided that you plan to call in to the show to discuss it with me! This book is definitely a chunkster (at about 800 pages) but it moves quickly - just ask Nicole and Suey (they are both reading it for the show). And it is definitely worth reading; I've read or listened to it at least 4 times over the years.


***REVISED RULES ***

TO ENTER THE CONTEST:
  • if you are interested in reading the first book in a fantastic fantasy series, please enter!
  • I'd love for you to listen to the show, either live or via the recording - even if you haven't read the book you'll get to hear why I love it so much
  • leave a comment that includes a way to contact you if you win
  • if you do win, you must contact me within 24 hours with your mailing address or I'll choose another winner
  • I'll draw the winner on Monday (1/11)

I'm so excited about the show and I'm thrilled to be able to offer this contest, so go enter right now!

I won't be entering the contest but I wanted to say how much I love this book and the entire series. Great choice to discuss.

Ok, now that the rules changed (I would have loved to listen but will more than likely be working). I would love to enter to win the book. I leant it to a friend and I don't think I ever got it back.
