Hey, want a free book?

Hearts and Minds is a campus novel set in a fictional all-female college at Cambridge University. Rosy Thornton has written a story centered on the conflict experienced (and caused) by St Radegund's first male Head of House, giving a glimpse into the inner workings of the college. From student protests to ethical dilemmas regarding donations, Ms Thornton paints a picture of a setting she knows well as a lecturer and Fellow at Emmanuel College, Cambridge.

I've got a copy of this book that I'd love to give away to YOU. Just leave a comment with your email address and I will choose a random winner on Sunday, May 22. It doesn't matter where you live--anyone is welcome to sign up to win.

If you're feeling extra chatty, you should also tell me about the book that was your most favorite read of the past year.

I think one of my favourite books this year would have to be Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi... I just watched the film last night too, and loved it :-)

I'd love to read this book by Rosy Thorton. I loved The Tapestry of Love. Her writing is soothing and lovely. Thank you for this giveaway!

My favorite book so far this year has been The History of Love by Nicole Krauss. It's a wonderful, poignant, beautifully written book.
