April, 2020 - I think I'm going to shut From My Bookshelf down for a while; maybe for good. I've been putting this together for quite a few years now and it's starting to feel a bit more of a chore. I'll keep my Goodreads connected, but with the state of the world right now, I just want to read without worrying about making sure I post something about it. Who knows - when the world starts to make some semblance of sense again, I may start actively posting here again. Until then, as always, happy reading!

Book giveaway - Horns by Joe Hill
I recently purchased a copy of Joe Hill's Horns as he will be doing a signing at a Borders close to where my sister lives in Maine (I live in Michigan) and since she's had his other books signed for me before, she offered to go ahead and head over to meet him again for me. So, I purchased Horns and the second volume of Locke & Key from Amazon and had them shipped to her.
Well, much to my surprise, last night I got home to a package from HarperCollins with a copy of Horns enclosed. I had attempted to get an ARC of the book months ago and shortly received an email back saying unfortunately they had run out of stock on the ARC, so I thought, no biggie, I'll just buy it when it comes out. And then I still got a brand new hardcover edition in the mail the week after I bought my copy and had it shipped to Maine.
So, long story not so short, HarperCollins' generosity to me becomes my generosity to you as I'll ship my extra copy of Horns to one of my readers. Just leave me a comment on this post for an entry, and if you blog about this giveaway, link back to the post, or mention it on Twitter or Facebook and just let me know and you'll get more entries. I'm going to leave this open until Friday, March 12, 2010. Unfortunately, I'll only be shipping to a US address as international shipping can just get a little too expensive and complicated.
Good luck and happy reading!
