Terry Brooks Giveaway!

In honour of my blog reaching 100 followers and my placing third in Cherie Reich's Flash Fiction blogfest, I am hosting a giveaway! As Terry Brooks is one of my all time favourite authors, I have raved about him several times on this blog, so I thought it appropriate to give away a book written by him. So here's how it'll work: you can pick any book by Terry Brooks and I will send it to you right from Amazon. Leave a comment on this post telling me which book you would like to read, and I will randomly draw one winner on Friday, June 8. Open to US and Canada. One entry per person; no, you don't get extra entries if you blog or tweet about this giveaway or follow me, but I will consider you even more awesome if you do.

Check out my post on Terry Brooks to help you decide. Haven't read anything by Terry Brooks? You could start at the beginning with his first book, The Sword of Shannara, which is often compared to The Lord of the Rings because it is very similar. Or, you could start with my favourite of the original trilogy, The Elfstones of Shannara. Or, you could try my favourite series of all his Shannara books, The Voyage of Jerle Shannara, which starts with Ilse Witch. Not interested in epic fantasy? No problem--try Magic Kingdom for Sale--Sold!, which is a more lighthearted fantasy, or Running with the Demon, which is a darker urban fantasy. Wow, so many choices! What Terry Brooks book do you want to win?

  3. Congrats on having over 100 followers. I've enjoyed your posts since joining a week ago. I have not yet read any of Terry Brooks books, but Magic Kingdom for Sale–Sold sounds like a interesting read. That would be my pick.

  6. Hey, congrats on having over 100 followers! ^_^

    I've only read Magic Kingdom for Sale - Sold! so far. But I've been collecting his books like crazy. Got most but the newer ones. I even found a 1st edition of The Sword of Shannara, didn't even know it was until much later. Crazy the things you find in secondhand shops!

    As you can guess, I'm not joining (though I'd love to complete my Landover series). I'm so far from US it ain't funny.

    1. That is cool! A first edition would be awesome to have. I would also love to get a book signed by Brooks.

    2. 'Tis an upside-down one too (apparently worth less, but what do I care?). The backing's upside-down to the book. Confused me no end, cause it's meant to be embossed on the front, then I took the jacket off and looked at the spine and ... duh! Seems somehow appropriate that it ended up on the other side of the world. ^_^
      There’s so many signatures I wish I had. Got one ... somewhere in my wall-o-books. Not by Brooks though. Tad Williams.

  7. I am happy for you to reach the big 100..:))) Congrats. I would pick Elfstones Of Shannara, if I were to win.

    Best of luck to everyone else that enters the giveaway.

    1. Elfstones is fantastic. I often suggest people start with that one rather than Sword because it is easier to get into.

    1. Good choice. I am attracted to any book with air ships in it, they are just cool.

  11. Congrats on 100 followers! Yay! I'd love to read The Sword of Shannara. Everyone keeps telling me to read this book, but I haven't had a chance to yet.

  12. I remember reading "The Sword of Shannara" a long, long time ago. It might be the only one I've read, so either or both!!!

    1. It's actually not my favourite--I prefer his later works.

  13. Great giveaway and congrats on the followers! I've never read any of his books, so I can't guess which I'd read.

  14. I would like "The Measure of the Magic: Legends of Shannara" as I've read the book that comes before it, but haven't gotten that one yet. :)
