IABD: A brain malfunction and FOUR books to give away

   
Recently when blogging about International Anita Brookner Day, I mentioned that I was going to be reading A Closed Eye, the last of AB's 24 novels left for me to read. Much to my chagrin, I just realized that I forgot about the fact that I just read it in November. Not only is this troubling because it makes me feel a little senile, but it also means that I have no AB novels left to read. On the other hand I have 24 to begin re-reading. And I plan do so chronologically.

In other news I am giving away not one, but four AB books in preparation for IABD.  All you have to do is cut the following and paste it in a comment with your order of preference.
Thomas, I don't have an AB novel to read for IABD and would love to get one so I can read it by July 16, 2011. My prize preference in order is...1...2...3
Please specify your order of preference or whether or not you have no preference. I will ship anywhere in the world. Entries must be posted to my comments no later than midnight Eastern Daylight Time April 15, 2011.
And remember, all you have to do for IABD is read one AB novel between now and July 16, 2011 and then tell us about it either on your blog or in the comments on my blog or Simon's blog.

  2. Thomas, I don't have an AB novel to read for IABD and would love to get one so I can read it by July 16, 2011. My prize preference in order is that I have no preference as I have never read Ms Brookner and would be excited to discover any of her novels.
    Thanks, Michelle

    You will be glad to know that many people in my field say that the middle aged brain does several things better than a younger brain...but I forget what they are.

  15. Hi Thomas! No need to enter me in the contest. Just dropping by to say that I found two Brookners at the book fair the other day and happy to be able to participate in the IABD. The titles I got were A Private View and Altered States. Have only read 2 Brookners before and looking forward to these.

  17. When you informed me of the international Brookner celebration, I just finished Fraud, which is the best Brookner I've yet to read. I've been stocking up on her books lately, so I've got plenty of stock for the day. :) I'll be reading The Rules of Engagement and Strangers.

  19. I am so happy for IABD. I am also reading all her novels. Not in order or one after the other, but constantly, year after year. Last week I found Latecomers, which has my favoirte opening in the world.
    I would love to win Rules of Engagement.

  21. Hello: by the time I entered this comment, it's probably too late for the Brookner give-away competition. But I just want to say that I'm glad to find many other Brookner's fans on this blog!!
