Book Giveaway #5 - Black Sheep by Georgette Heyer

***STICKY POST*** (scroll down for latest posts)

It's been quite a while since my last giveaway. So, here we go again. This time, I'm giving away my copy of Black Sheep by Georgette Heyer. It looks like new and has only been read once. Check out my review of it.

Product Description from Amazon:

Abigail Wendover, on the shelf at 28, is kept busy when her niece falls head over heels in love with a handsome fortune hunter and Abbie is forced into a confrontation with his scandalous uncle.

Miles Calvery is the black sheep of his family- enormously rich from a long sojourn in India, disconcertingly blunt and brash. But he turns out to be Abbie's most important ally in keeping her niece out of trouble.

But how can he possibly be considered eligible when she has worked so hard to rebuff his own nephew's suit for her niece? And how can she possibly detach from an ailing sister who needs her? This is a heroine who has to be, literally, swept off her feet.

This giveaway is only open to those residing in Malaysia. To enter, just do any or all of the following:

1. Leave a comment and your e-mail address saying you want to participate - 1 entry

2. Blog about this giveaway in your blog and tell me about it - 2 entries

3. Adding me to your blogroll or if I'm already in your blogroll - 5 entries

You have until 29 April, 2009 to enter. Good luck!

My Hundred Books by Robert Service

My Hundred Books by Robert Service

A thousand books my library
And all are primed, it seems to me
With brains.
Mine are so few I scratch in thought
My head;
For just a hundred of the lot
I've read.

A hundred books, but of the best,
I can
With wisdom savour and digest
And scan.
Yet when afar from kin and kith
In nooks
Of quietness I'm happy with
Sweet books.

So as nine hundred at me stare
In vain,
My lack I'm wistfully aware
Of brain;
Yet as my leave of living ends,
With looks
Of love I view a hundred friends,
My books.
