the prizes for my OT Challene peeps! The image “” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.
We have a contest on now, for all of you Orbis Terrarum Challenge folks!!!
Here are the books I picked up today at the local used book store. I always buy used, hope that doesn't offend anyone. :)
I will pick my three winners on Saturday.
Ways to win:
1.) If you comment on this post you will get one more entry. Tell me if you have read and enjoyed these books, or not. They are all three books that I own, and have read good things about, but I haven't read them.

2.)Have you reviewed any of the three books above? Leave a comment with the link to your review and I will add another entry to your tally.

3.) Each of your reviews during the OT challenge that are added by SAT will also count. Go here to leave your international reviews!

Which do you own?

Snap! Samurai's Garden! I had to read that in high school. Let me tell you, this is one of those books that, at the time, seemed to be filled with sex. I think probably it had like, a bit of sex, not like dripping with sex. But, oh man, did it make us giddy and, well... school-boyish/girlish.

Anyway, I remember liking it for more than just the "young-dirty-mind" aspect.

How's that for a review?

I read When the Emperor was Divine recently (review here and I absolutely loved it. And I've heard such great things about Captain Corelli's Mandolin. I also picked up a used copy a while ago and I'm really looking forward to reading it.

Yay a contest!
I've read Corelli's Mandolin - Absolutely loved it. It took a while to get into the story and it's very complex but worth it.

I have not read any of them, but I am looking forward to read up the reviews on these books.

Thanks to Nymeth, I got to read what 'When the Emperor was Divine' holds in store.
