GIVEAWAY! * the heart goes last by margaret atwood

The book gods have been kind to me.

I don’t do many giveaways but this one dropped into my lap; it was destiny.

Her publisher sent me an extra copy of the incomparable Margaret Atwood’s latest novel, The Heart Goes Last. I could have been a complete ass and just sold it on Amazon but then I wouldn’t have had the satisfaction of giving away a fantastic work of literary fiction.

Every now and then I enjoy giving away a fantastic work of literary fiction. I haven’t done so in a very long time. I was due.



Leave a comment and your name will go into the GRAND GIVEAWAY POT OF LITERARY GOODNESS, i.e.: an old crappy bowl. Contest ends Wednesday, 4 November, 12:00 midnight CDT – Chicago. ** Entries received after this time will not be considered. ** Sorry to be a hard ass.

On 5 November I will throw all your lovely names into a pot, drawing out  one very lucky winner, indeed. You’ll receive an email from me requesting your name and mailing address. You’ll send me that via email. Then, Bob’s yer uncle, off it ships.

***    Offer valid worldwide. I’m feeling generous.    ***

Tweet about THE GRAND GIVEAWAY and your name will  go in twice. Just let me know you’ve done so in the comments. Hey, I trust you. You look honest.  Except for YOU, that one dude back in the corner. YOU, wearing the hat.

Flatter me, about anything at all, and your name will go in one MORE time!

I know it’s insane but it’s my GIVEAWAY, my rules. And I’ve had a rough week. I need the boost.

  1. I would love to read The Heart Goes Last. I’ve been hearing good things about it. Have you read it yet? What did you think?


  2. The Handmaid’s Tale was so powerful. I really want to read The Heart Goes Last.


  3. Not sure if my last comment sent but I’ll post just incase.
    This is an awesome giveaway – and an amazing author.
    Hi from the UK and I have my fingers crossed for this 🙂
    (PS – I tweeted about this competition also).


  4. Well, I love Atwood novels, but I was on the fence about this one. Your description – along with some other good things I’ve heard about it – may have pushed me over the edge!

    I’d love to know how you think it compares with her others…


  5. Indeed, the book Gods certainly have. And, this reader, has so enjoyed, with pleasure, reading your many reviews over the past years, that I will not be disappointed if chance does not reward me here. But now retired on coastal North Carolina, reading Margaret Atwood’s The Heart Goes Last by the fireplace, granted would certainly help in warming the many nippy fall mornings now upon us and impending winter’s cold.


  6. Oh I soooo want to read this, it sounds amazing, and I’ve read all of Ms Atwood’s other work, so I’m so curious to give this one a read! Thank you 🙂


  7. I love your blog header photo, it’s so relaxing every time I see it. Not sure if thats weird or not, but I mean it as a compliment. If flattering gets us everywhere, I hope it gets me in that book!


  8. Found your contest this afternoon and tweeted it out. Your rules outline was entertaining and funny. I was just studying Matthew 20:1-16 and your post paralleled it. Your contest – your rules. Thanks for the chance(s) to win Margaret Atwood’s book.


  9. ¡Hola!
    The ways of Literature are inscrutable… so here I am, posting from Spain 🙂
    I have been waiting a lot for this book to be translated into Spanish, but I cannot wait to read it, so I think it is an unique opportunity. Thank you so much for making it valid worldwide; my fingers are crossed!



  10. Looking forward to discovering another dystopian world created by Margaret Atwood. I’ve been hooked since my Grade 10 English teacher gave me the Handmaid’s Tale… Oh! and I have happily tweeted your post. 🙂


  11. Ugh, I didn’t read all the instructions before commenting so I need to again. Tweeting this offer out!
