I just happened to be strolling through the online community and sort of stumbled across Booking Mama @ http://bookingmama.blogspot.com/ . Right now she's giving away several copies of Drood by Dan Simmons and The Italian Lover by Robert Hellenga. Drood expands on the life of Charles Dickens featuring the underbelly of London society, actually sort of a spooking ghost story as told through Wilkie's eyes. This book is also being feature on The Tome Traveler as well @ http://thetometraveller.blogspot.com/, so there's a couple of opportunities to win. There has been a lot of speculation about Dicken's life outside of writing and these gaps are filled in. If you like historical fiction, an excellent read. Italian Lover is every romance reader's dream, but not for the faint of heart. The story starts 25 years after discovering an erotic masterpiece. So go check out Booking Mama and enter her great contests.
