Happy Birthday!! And a Giveaway!!

Happy Birthday Ms. Du Maurier!! If she were still alive, today May 13th, would have been Daphne du Maurier's 102nd birthday. So, in the tradition of birthday everywhere, there will be gifts!



But instead of the usual, the birthday girl receiving gifts, in a way, she will be giving the gifts to you, my dear readers! Or actually, Sourcebooks, who has recently re-published two of her books, Frenchman's Creek and My Cousin Rachel, in very attractive new trade paperback editions, is offering the gifts to two lucky readers.
There are two books available, one of each book, for two lucky winners.

Just leave me a comment, telling me if you would be interested, after reading my fine reviews, in trying for Frenchman's and/or My Cousin Rachel and I will hold a separate drawing for each. You can get one entry for one or both with a comment, and an extra two entries if you are or become a follower of my always entertaining blog. A separate comment, if you will, letting me know that. And I will check, so no fibbing now! Lol...lol.

Since I am going on vacation next week, as I will tell you about in a post shortly, the contest will just run a week, and I will pick the winner, with the help of Random.org, Thursday morning and pass on the two names and mailing info. to the very kind Danielle at Sourcebooks to mail out the books. The contest is open to US and Canadian residents and GOOD LUCK! I think you will enjoy either one!!
