Book giveaways, please post as found!
« on: November 23, 2012, 09:31:42 am »
Well, we all love books here, so why not have a constant thread running to post where we can find giveaways? We've done random bits and bobs before, but with the plethora of holiday themed ones on now, I finally smacked myself upside the head, and said, "Silly Putty - I mean Patti, why not share all those tweeted giveaways with all of Hurog?  Put up a thread, and anybody who sees a good giveaway can add what they've found to it, and it isn't for short term stuff that goes out of date." 
This means that we can rotate out stuff that goes out of date, but keep the thread as new offers are made.

Here, on this initial post, I'll offer this giveaway offered for kid's books on the way to Christmas.  When it's over, I'll remove the link & note that this offer has expired.  By then, my hope is that we'll have added several other offers after it.  Remember, you can use the "Modify" button on the upper right of YOUR post to edit it when the conditions of the giveaway change.  If something new is added, or the time limit is extended, or when it expires, just change that info on the post.  Use strikeouts or replace it with something italicized or bold, underlined, or perhaps in a different color or font.

So:

Free story online.  http://www.tor.com/2016/11/16/a-pest-most-fiendish/
"Miss Pippa Kipling and her automaton companion, the Porter, exterminate pests of the supernatural variety. What should be a typical job in your average haunted cavern soon derails in an inconveniently undead fashion. Even with the aid of her gadget collection and the Porter’s prowess, this task may prove fatal for Miss Kipling—or worse, rip her petticoat."

By the by, if you don't want the books yourself/can't give them shelf space, there's always donating them to a hospital...

I've got to warn you that the excerpt has the phrase "fire pit with its stone rock wall and submerged circle" which made me flinch.
But, there's a giveaway, so...
