Fairy Tale GIVEAWAY!!!

In honor of my new weekly meme, Fairy Tale Fridays, I am having a giveaway of the book that was the inspiration!!! It is a book filled with mystery and intrigue, all woven amongst a multitude of classic fairy tales. I even voted this book as my favorite general fiction book read in 2009!! Have you figured it out yet?!? In case you have not, it is The Book of Lost Things by John Connolly!!

To enter, simply leave a comment with your personal favorite fairy tale, whether it may be a classic or modern tale. However, I am changing things up a bit! I will NOT be emailing the winner. S/he will be responsible for contacting me within 7 days after the announcement.

I will also be changing future giveaway entries, so this will be the last time the extra entries will be seen here. To earn extra entries for the final time . . .
  1. +1: Follow Tif Talks Books via Google Friend Connect (link is to the right). I will verify each entry on your personal dashboard!!
  2. +1: Help to spread the word about the giveaway through Twitter (reference @tiftalksbooks so I can refer to it).
  3. +1: Post a link on your own personal blog (leave the link in the comment section).
  4. +2: Participate in Fairy Tale Fridays by using Mr. Linky. EACH weekly participation from Hansel & Gretel until the end of the giveaway can earn you two extra points!!

That's it! REMEMBER: Follow the directions or entries will be disqualified!! If I receive a large number of entries, multiple books will be given away!!

Final details . . .

  1. Due to personal budget constraints, this giveaway is ONLY open to U.S. Residents. (For my international friends, I will be hosting an international giveaway in a future month!)
  2. This Fairy Tale Giveaway will run until February 28, 2010 at 12:00 Midnight Central Time. The winner will be announced on Monday, March 1, 2010.

  2. I love so many fairy tales it is hard to choose. Trina Schart Hyman's Little Red Riding Hood tops the list because I love her illustrations.

  5. hmmm. Favorite Fairy Tale...probably The Six Swans although I hate that the one brother's arm stays a wing at the end. I always imagine a different ending. :-)
