Water for Elephants Giveaway

One of the most colorful and captivating books to cross our path here at this year has been Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen. This fictional account of narrator Jacob Jankowski as he looks back on his life with a traveling circus sparkles with a fairy-tale quality balanced with the gritty day-to-day circus reality of mistreated animals, sideshow freaks, and even the threat of murder. Water for Elephants has been a slow-burning bestseller since its release earlier this year in hardback (a huge feat for any book, much less a first novel with a smallish print run), and has reaped huge amounts of praise from Booksense and Bookslut, amongst others.

To celebrate the launch of the new Blog, we’ve paired with our good friends at Algonquin Books to bring you an advanced reader's copy of this marvelous treat of a book. The success of books like Water for Elephants makes bookselling a pleasure, and we’d like to pass that on to you.

Due to the limited number of advanced copies printed and the book's bestseller status, this is destined to become a collector's item. To enter the drawing, e-mail your name, mailing address, and e-mail address to The last day to enter is July 31, 2006, and the winner will be drawn during the first week of August.

Good luck, and thanks for reading!
