ETC: BAFABW give aways galore

framed over at framed and booked is jumping into the Buy a Friend a Book Week with both feet. She is planning to give away three books that all look rather interesting. I can't decide which one I want so I'm going to try for all three and increase my odds. She is asking for a little something in return: book suggestions. Here are her guidelines:

- she wants suggestions for the Decades Challenge if 3M hosts again, or probably if she doesn't because it was a fun challenge, and makes you read outside of your preferred decade

- she wants suggestions for Booking Around the States. I think she has a few already, but more suggestions are always appreciated

- how about a good Christmas story to get in the Christmas spirit?

- or any old good book you've read, with a link to your rave review

The books that framed apparently bought twice accidentally - which is an interesting premise in the first place, include:

  • Crow Lake by Mary Lawson

  • The Oak Leaves by Maureen Lang

  • By the Lake by John McGahern

None of these are familiar to me, but all sound very interesting, with a fall-ish sounding theme. I want a new book! So head on over there and try for a book too. But don't try too hard. I want a book.

  1. Thanks for the plug. You explained the whole idea much better than I did. I hope you do win. I haven't read any of these three books even though I presently own two copies. (idiocy) I hope they're worth it.


Thanks for commenting, so nice of you to visit.
