Homecoming celebration: international giveaway of Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier

Some of you may recall that the Business School Wives Book Club enjoyed a Rebecca-fest some time ago. For newer visitors to this blog suffice to say, that I think it is a super book. For my ruminations on the subject in full, please click here.

The Business School Wives Book Club has now sadly dispersed and is no more. For reasons which I am not clear on and which no doubt have something to do with “high mobility living”, I find that I have rocked up back in the UK with two copies of Rebecca... which is one more than anyone needs.

So, there is a lovely, almost new edition of this classic novel up for grabs. All you need to do is leave a comment. I will then draw a name from a hat (or cup or bowl or other receptacle) at random. The party is open to everyone, so do not worry about where you live.

Bon weekend!

  4. Oooh, I'd love to be entered please! It's one of my favourite books, but I don't have my own copy, I just borrow my mum's old one.

  10. Okay--so my daughter has absconded with my copy, which is old and doesn't have that totally cool cover, so you can throw my hat into whatever receptacle you're going to use.

    Love this book--better than the movie--Daphne really knew how to work her audience.

  11. I love this book so much and it's one I read again every few years. I don't need another copy though, as I already have it in the same edition that you show in the picture. Let someone else have the pleasure!

  12. So sorry your book club has disbanded. I know I felt a little melancholic when the one I was in ended - it still doesn't seem right to join another one yet - it's almost as if they have to evolve in their own way and can't be forced. I'd love to be entered or Rebecca - I have read it but somewhere in moving mine has gone astray... Lovely Gesture.

  13. I have been wanting to read Rebecca for the longest of times (did love the movies) and even more so since I discovered that Daphne du Maurier wrote, among other works, The Birds. Alfred Hitchcock later made it into a thriller.
    Please put me into what ever pot, hat, etc. you use.

    Your review was great. I appreciate the chance to enter the drawing. Penny

  14. Have a copy on my bedside table - awaiting to be read, however, I wish the others good luck.
    Trust you are well and enjoying life, my lovely.

  15. For some reason, no one stocks Rebecca in my country. And for some one who loves Jane Eyre, this is a constant source of heartache.

  16. Thank you for entering folks... I am about to do the grand draw - and so declare this giveaway closed.
