What wasn't under your tree? Giveaway

Christmas is over; the decorations have been put away till next year and life is slowly returning to normal. This year for Christmas I asked for two books: The Lady of the Rivers by Philippa Gregory and The Secret Letters of the Monk who Sold his Ferrari by Robin Sharma. The Lady of the Rivers showed up under the tree but, alas, no monk. I'll have to track it down for myself.

Was there a book you were hoping to get for Christmas that didn't make an appearance? Would you like to win it? That's right. I'm offering to be your January Santa. Here are the rules, etc.
  1. This is an international giveaway
  2. The giveaway is open from right now until January 17, 2012. So you have 2 weeks to enter and get your friends to enter too.
  3. To enter you MUST leave a comment with the title and author of the book you didn't get AND your e-mail address AND the number of entries you qualify for.
  4. You can get one extra entry if you were a follower of my blog BEFORE this giveaway was announced. Just a little 'thank you' to my followers.
So, comment away and Good Luck!

    The book I didn't get this Christmas was Extreme Double Knitting by Alasdair Post-Quinn (but I don't know if I blame them - it's hard to track down for the non-internet crowd).
