Happy Steinbeck Summer - Announcing a "Portable Steinbeck" Giveaway
Posted by JaneGS
It's been way too long since I held a giveaway on my blog. So, to honor my rediscovery of the enchanting words of John Steinbeck, I will be giving away a gently used copy of The Portable Steinbeck (Penguin Great Books of the 20th Century).
I know there are a lot of readers out there who are intrigued by the works of this Nobel-winning author, and this collection will provide a more than just a taste and flavor of what Steinbeck has to offer.
Please note that this collection contains some complete works (The Red Pony and Of Mice and Men), complete stories from The Long Valley and The Pastures of Heaven, and excerpts from The Grapes of Wrath, Tortilla Flat, East of Eden, Cannery Row, Travels With Charley, and Sea of Cortez. It also includes Steinbeck's Nobel Prize Acceptance Speech.
This giveaway is open to everyone (no international restrictions). To enter, leave a comment on this post. You can get an additional entry by tweeting about this post (just let me know you have done so).
Deadline to enter is Sunday, August 28 at 8 pm MDT.
If you haven't already been reading up on Steinbeck via the Classics Circuit Steinbeck Tour, I urge you to do so. There are some really interesting posts out there.
Here is my post on Cannery Row and Sweet Thursday.
