Read-a-Thon 3 PM Update - and Giveaway!

To celebrate the Read-a-Thon, I'm giving away a whole collection of graphic novels to one lucky winner. Included are the following:

Will You Still Love Me if I Wet the Bed?, a mini graphic novel by Liz Prince,
Bombaby, by Anthony Mazzotta, which I read today,
The Squirrel Mother, a celebrated graphic novel by Megan Kelso,
Ray Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451: The Authorized Graphic Adaptation, by Ray Bradbury and Tim Hamilton,
Jennifer Omand's charming Squarecat Comics,
Amy Unbounded, by Rachel Hartman, perfect for that tween girl in your life,
Serenity: Those Left Behind, a tie-in from the cult TV show,
The Walking Dead, by Robert Kirkman and Tony Moore,
The Question: The Five Books of Blood, by Greg Rucka,
Heroes: Volume 1, based on the hit TV series, and
Strangers in Paradise, Volume 1, by Terry Moore- the first compilation volume of the landmark series signed by author Terry Moore.

All are gently-read used copies, in good condition. Some may contain violence, sex or swearing and most are not suitable for children or younger teens.

  • Leave a comment on this post with your email address. Comments without an email address will be disregarded.
  • Become a follower and receive an extra entry.
  • Tweet this giveaway and/or link to it (and leave me the link) for two extra entries.
  • The giveaway will be open from now until midnight EST, Wednesday November 4. I will likely mail the package out the following Friday.
  • I can mail to U.S. addresses only but if you want to enter as angel for someone abroad I'll mail to you in the U.S. and then you will be responsible for shipping to the winner.
This is a great giveaway for the newbie to graphic novels or the reader looking to expand his or her collection- there's a lot of variety here from small press comics to TV tie-ins to brand-new comics to a classic or two. I will probably also throw in an extra or two into the package such as a manga or something like that.

Now, on to my update!

Halfway through, and I'm on to longer books now. I finished the graphic adaptation of Franz Kafka's The Metamorphosis, which I thought was great, and James Turner's Rex Libris: I, Librarian, a cute librarian-as-superhero comic.

Next I'm moving into the bright, colorful world of Joann Sfar for Klezmer and Vampire Loves. See you at 6!
