A Book For You

And the winner is Chris Stillman

I've read it, and enjoyed it. Would you like it? The book is Zugzwang by Ronan Bennett. I purchased this book because I collect fiction that has a significant element of chess in the story. The story is a thriller, a page turner, that takes place in St. Petersbug a few years before the Revolution. I probably wouldn't have purchased it without the chess connection, but it holds up well in the thriller genre. In short a good read. I'm giving this paperback copy away because I found a nice hardbound copy.

I'll take all requests for the book left in the comments during the next 24 hours, or so, and then use a random number generator to determine the winner. I'll then ship the book at my expense to the winner. The offer is limited to residents of the U.S. and Canada. My apologies to my good friends in other countries but the cost of shipments to other destinations is simply too high.

Note: The offer is open only to currently registered commenters others are welcome to register for future giveaways but will not be eligible for this one. Please make it clear if you want to be considered for the book or are just commenting.



Wheee! I'll try again! :-D

Thanks for sharing your books Norm!

Sure, please throw my name in the hat. I like chess fiction.

Yeah!! Count me in.

Hey Norm, Did you by any chance get my reply to your email?
