Albert Whitman Summer Book Giveaway



Thanks to the wonderful people at Albert Whitman & Company, I have a very special summer book giveaway!

Win a Signed Copy of Being Henry David by Cal Armistead

About the Book: Seventeen-year-old "Hank" has found himself at Penn Station in New York City with no memory of anything--who he is, where he came from, why he's running away. His only possession is a worn copy of Waldenby Henry David Thoreau. And so he becomes Henry David--or "Hank"--and takes first to the streets, and then to the only destination he can think of--Walden Pond in Concord, Massachusetts.

Cal Armistead's remarkable debut novel is about a teen in search of himself. Hank begins to piece together recollections from his past. The only way Hank can discover his present is to face up to the realities of his grievous memories. He must come to terms with the tragedy of his past, to stop running, and to find his way home.


Albert Whitman & Company is giving away a variety of books from picture books to YA from August 1-4. Be sure to check out other stops in the giveaway tour The Book Cellar and Miss O's Library Land

  6. My favorite summer read has been Requiem by Lauren Oliver, partially because I enjoy the feeling of completeness when a trilogy is done and because Lauren doesn't really let you have closure! (who knows what will happen next!)

  7. My favorite summer read was "Eleanor and Park." Oh the angst and teen love, challenging our broadest assumptions about family life.

  13. My favorite book this summer was this year's Printz Award winner, In Darkness, by Nick Lake. I loved the juxtaposition of Haitian independence history with the 2010 earthquake and learning more about voodoo. Helen

Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell

Rating: 5/5 Stars Genre: Realistic Fiction Release Date: 2/26/2013 Add to Goodreads About the Book: Eleanor and Park are both misfits. When new girl Eleanor sits next to Park on the bus, they don't want anything to do with each other. But over the course of the school year, things change. It starts with comic books and becomes a friendship and a romance that the two will never forget. You never forget your first love. GreenBeanTeenQueen Says: Have you ever had a book sit on your shelf that you've heard so much hype about? And you think that books sounds like it would be right up your alley, but you're in a reading slump and you're afraid to give it a try unless it fails? I knew Eleanor and Park sounded like my perfect book, but I was in such an after committee slump that I even though I knew this book would help, I just didn't want to be disappointed. I should have known better because Eleanor and Park was perfect and everything that I had hoped it wou

Post Downton Abbey Reading List

Downton Abbey is over (with a shocking and frustrating ending!) and now I'm suffering Downton Abbey withdrawal. I've got a reading list full of books that I hope will satisfy my post-Downton Abbey cravings and I thought I'd share what's in my pile and get suggestions for other after Downton reads. Here's what I hope to be reading this year (a mix of YA and adult titles):                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  A couple Julian Fellowes reads:                And a few re-reads:                    Edited to add: What's on your Post-Downton Abbey reading list?
