Lucky Leprechaun Giveaway Hop!

Erin go Bragh!

Be on the look out for little Leprechauns giving away books on blogs all over the bloggersphere thanks to the ladies over at Books Complete Me and Kathy at I am a Reader not a Writer.



You would think my offering would be green, or Irish, or having to do with Guinness beer, or Shepherd's Pie -- but in fact, I will be honoring
Women's History Month (the month of March is designated by the Library of Congress, "to pay tribute to the generations of women whose commitment to nature and the planet have proved invaluable to society.")

In fact, my own personal reading has been focused on Women's History -- either historical -- or historical fiction.

With that in mind, I am giving away ONE paperback copy of

Remarkable Creatures by Tracy Chevalier

Remarkable Creatures by Tracy Chevalier: Book Cover

From Publishers Weekly:

The discoveries of fossils on the beaches of Lyme Regis, England, in the 19th century rocked the world and opened the minds of scientists to the planet's unimaginable age and the extinction of species. Though attributed to men of consequence, the first remarkable finds were made by the poor working-class Anning family—and their young daughter, Mary. Chevalier wraps the history with a tale of the friendship between Mary and Elizabeth Philpot, a gentlewoman also fascinated by the creatures of stone, in a time when women were thought to be ill-suited to the work or incapable of understanding the scope of their finds.


The giveaway is open from March 17-March 20th
(I will pick a winner via random.org on Sunday night at 10pm CDT -- because if it's any later, I will be asleep!) 

It is SO easy to enter -- really -- so easy -- just fill out the form below. 

No tweets, re posts, hand-jives, or gargling required.

Would I like for you to become a follower? Sure...all bloggers are a bit narcissistic and want to feel the love -- but I would also like for you to come back and visit, because I've got a hip cite.

So, following is not required, but welcomed.

And just in case you have forgotten, all of these super-dooper blogs will be offering giveaways as well.
Go see what literary shamrocks they have available!
