E X T R A ! E X T R A! GIVEAWAY:

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society
by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows

Description from the amazon:
January 1946: writer Juliet Ashton receives a letter from a stranger, a founding member of the Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society. And so begins a remarkable tale of the island of Guernsey during the German occupation, and of a society as extraordinary as its name.

My two-bits:
In-a-word(s): hope
This is a gem of a book. A delightful read that entails friendships sparked with the formation of a book club during war time.

Prize: my gently used book

Open to all.

Offer ends: November 28, 2010

TO DO:

Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society is the name of a book club in this story. Quite long, whimsical and unique.

If you had the opportunity to name a book club, what would the name be?
-tell me in comments along with your email

Till The End of Time (1945)
Sung by: Perry Como

Till the end of time, long as stars are in the blue
Long as there's a Spring of birds to sing I'll go on loving you
Till the end of time, long as roses bloom in May
My love for you will grow deeper with every passing day

Till the wells run dry and each mountain disappears
I'll be there for you to care for you through laughter and through tears
So take my heart in sweet surrender and tenderly say that I'm
The one you love and live for till the end of time

Till the wells run dry and each mountain disappears
I'll be there for you to care for you through laughter and through tears
So take my heart in sweet surrender and tenderly say that I'm
The one you love and live for till the end of time

  3. Thank you for including me in your fantastic event! I enjoyed following all the posts. I Looooooved Guernsey Literary Society. That quirky British humor is so delightful. I'm not entering the drawing (already have the book), but my book club's name is the Bibliovores, because we devour books :) We met for 7 years before we finally picked a name.

  4. I would name my book club sticky pages. I usually always bake something, like brownies or cupcakes, so that is where the sticky part comes from.
    I would love to read this book.

  10. Hmmm. I don't know if my book club's name would be. I doubt it would start out with a name, but then would be given some inside joke name, like the no soap radio club.
