The World We Found – Discussion + Galley Giveaway

This giveaway has ended and the winners have been notified via email. Thanks to all of you who entered, and please remember to check back on January 10 for the discussion!

Those of you who read my blog regularly know about my love for Thrity Umrigar and my passion for spreading the word about her novels.  I’ve loved each and every one of her books (Bombay Time, The Space Between Us, If Today Be Sweet, First Darling of the Morning, and The Weight of Heaven), so I was incredibly excited when I discovered she is releasing a new novel in January called The World We Found.

If that wasn’t enough, a publicist at Harper approached me to see if I’d be interested in doing something for the release, and of course, I said, “YES!!”  And behold, The World We Found Readalong and Discussion was born.

The readalong will take place over the month of January; The World We Found releases on Tuesday, January 3, and one week later, on January 10, we’ll start our discussion, which will continue every Tuesday and Thursday for the rest of the month.  I certainly hope you will return to follow along with and participate in the discussion.

What’s more, Harper has been incredibly generous and has given me twenty advance review copies of The World We Found to give away in order to support the readalong and discussion.  Yes, you read that right – twenty!!  If you’re interested in reading The World We Found along with me, enter for your chance to win one of these copies below!  And for the rest of you, you’re still welcome to go out on Tuesday, January 3 and buy a copy of this wonderful book.  There are innumerable issues to discuss in The World We Found, so I really hope you all are as excited about this discussion as I am.

Unfortunately, there are some limitations for the giveaway.  Because the giveaway is being fulfilled by the publisher (meaning they are supplying review copies and sending them out – I am not being compensated monetarily for hosting this giveaway or the readalong!), US and Canada only please.  This giveaway is open through Monday, December 5, 2011.  I’ll send the winners’ information to Harper on Tuesday to make sure the books arrive in a timely manner.  I do ask that if you enter, you also plan on participating.  While I won’t be policing this in any way, I would love a healthy discussion about the book!

Good luck!

  9. I thoroughly enjoyed The Weight of Heaven and then loved The Space Between Us even more. My library has not ordered The World We Found yet – sometimes it takes months before they decide on a purchase. Let’s hope I can win a copy to participate as Umrigar is my latest favourite author. I am thrilled for this chance to participate and look forward to the reading and discussions.

  13. I think I am going to tentatively join this discussion and readalong, and the good news is that this is one of the books I picked up at SIBA, so there is no need for me to hog one of the books that can go to someone else! I am off to add this to my calendar and find my book! Can’t wait to discuss this one!
