Giveaway: The Sinful Life of Lucy Burns by Elizabeth Leiknes

Last month I had the chance to read and review The Sinful Life of Lucy Burns by Elizabeth Leiknes. Thank you again to Harrison Demchick from Bancroft for sending me this book to review! He was also nice enough to let me offer my copy as a giveaway. Because I have STACKS of books that I need to mail home, what's one more, but to a different address?!? Besides, I'd love to pass this fun, beach read along!

This giveway will close on Friday, July 31st, at midnight MST (yes, I'm going to close it at midnight, mainland time...just easier that way), and is open internationally. To enter:
  • Post a comment, answering the question, "If Hell exists, mine would require me to __________ for eternity." In other words, my uncle used to say that hanging Christmas lights for eternity would be his idea of Hell. :) What would your's be? Please include your email address.
  • If you're a follower, let me know, and I'll give you one additional entry.
  • Twitter the giveaway (I'm @mjmbecky), or include a mention about the giveaway on your blog for another entry.
Good luck again, and I'll draw for the book on 7/31. Mahalo!

  2. Mine would be cleaning showers one after the other. I hate that in a serious way.

    I'll also blog about the giveaway later this week.

  3. I really hate dusting--least-favorite activity. You should see my room. I haven't dusted it since... um.... Well, I can't remember. It's pretty dusty, though. I don't even care.

  5. If Hell exists mine would require me to be sitting inactively for eternity - So, I'm already in hell...I've been sitting 6/7 hours a day since July 1st listening to my students' oral examinations. They are very good but...I can't bear being sitting all that time. I never sit during my lessons! Then I have very little time to read these days and I hate it! Double torture!

  8. Mine would be to switch between cleaning the apartment and writing corporate minutes forever...while listening to complaining voices...in a smelly and hot place...while catching glimpses of ESPN.

  26. If Hell exists, mine would require me to be in the complaint department for eternity. Nothing worse than being in customer service!

    Great idea for a contest!
