Contest Giveaway #1

This post is for the winners of MonMad 2011 hosted at THE WRITERS LOUNGE

READ. Yes, i know you want to scroll down directly to the Book Lists, but bear with poor Freelancer for a while.

I congratulate MAITHILI, SMITA and PULKIT for their success and hope they like my choice of gifts.

So, updated news is, instead of 9 books, you now have luxury of choosing from 15 novels. YES, 15. So there are a lot of options open to you now. You can choose 1 and only 1 though. I am still un-employed :P and its the gesture that matters :D

Anyway, winners, when you choose a book, write down in comments which book you want. SCRAP the rule that says if one book is selected by someone, the other cannot get it. You CAN. But what's the point?? You will obviously read the review here itself :D

ALSO, you have time between 31st of August to change your choice if you want to. I would suggest you to read an author that you haven't read yet. Expand your horizon or even the genre's you are comfortable with. Do not Google the book up, you will get spoilers and that will diminish the excitement.

This GIVEAWAY is strictly private and in collaboration with THE WRITERS LOUNGE.

Here YOU GO...........

2. Cowboys and Aliens - Joan D. Vinge
3. The Silmarillion - J.R.R Tolkien
