BBAW Giveaway - The Pursuit of Love

If killer Unicorns aren't your thing perhaps love is.

The Pursuit of Love by Nancy Mitford

is one of my favourite books and no one seems to have read it. Which makes me sad. So to celebrate BBAW I'm giving away one copy.

Here's a quote so you can see if it is your cup of tea

"Obsessed with sex!" said Jassy. "there's nobody so obsessed as you Linda. Why if I so much as look at a picture you say I'm a pygmalionist."

In the end we got much more information out of a book called Ducks and Duck breeding.

"Ducks can only copulate," said Linda, after studying this for a while, "in running water. Good luck to them."



To enter leave a comment telling what your favourite book is.

For another entry twitter about this contest and leave me a comment telling me you did.

This one is International, good luck.

  5. I wouldn't say that I have an absolute favourite book, so instead I'll mention /one/ of my favourites. Well, it's actually a series - Kate Daniels by Ilona Andrews.

  15. You're right, I've never heard of it! What a great giveaway idea!
    I just read Looking for Salvation at the Dairy Queen. Great title, pretty good book--similar to Fannie Flagg type of Southern Fiction.
