2nd Annual Dreaming of Books Giveaway Hop




Welcome to the 2nd Annual Dreaming of Books Giveaway Hop


This hop runs from January 13th to 18th



Recently I discovered a new author, Elizabeth Peters.   The first book in her Eygptian Series is called Crocodile on the Sandbank.  I loved her witty personality, the humor that laced through this book always brought a smile to my face if not a downright chuckle. Yes parts of the story were predictable, but it was still a fun read.  I have already read the first couple of pages from the next in the series and I had a hard time stopping (and laughing).

Amelia Peabody, that indomitable product of the Victorian age, embarks on her debut Egyptian adventure armed with unshakable self-confidence, a journal to record her thoughts, and, of course, a sturdy umbrella. On her way to Cairo, Amelia rescues young Evelyn Barton-Forbes, who has been abandoned by her scoundrel lover. Together the two women sail up the Nile to an archeological site run by the Emerson brothers -- the irascible but dashing Radcliffe and the amiable Walter. Soon their little party is increased by one -- one mummy, that is, and a singularly lively example of the species. Strange visitations, suspicious accidents, and a botched kidnapping convince Amelia that there is a plot afoot to harm Evelyn. Now Amelia finds herself up against an unknown enemy -- and perilous forces that threaten to make her first Egyptian trip also her last...


If you would like to win this book I will make it very simple for you.  Just leave me a comment and tell me about a new favorite author of yours.   How easy is that!  If you've got this book already, I will send another in the series or just let you decide and will purchase something of similar value (up to $10).

Be sure to click on the Giveaway Icon for a complete list of all those taking part in this Hop.

The winner will have this book shipped from The Book Depository.  Winner will received an email from me on January 19th.  Good luck :)

  16. Steven Harper! Ok, I've read only one of his books so far - The Doomsday Vault, but it was so entertaining that when I finished it, I could've started it right away, but decided to wait for the sequel which is scheduled in a few months & now I can't wait for.
