Welcome to TNBBC's 3rd Book Giveaway!
This giveaway was made possible by self published author M.Clifford. His novel, The Book , placed in the top 250 of this year's Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award contest. An amazing accomplishment! And now two lucky people out there will have the opportunity to win a copy of this dystopian look at the future of censorship and government control in a digital age gone wild.
Here is the summary from Goodreads.com:
It begins,“Don’t read The Book.” All information is controlled by The Book, a digital reading device that exists in a paperless, dystopian future shockingly similar to our own. Among the many Book lovers, we find Holden, a simple sprinkler fitter content with his small life. Within his favorite story, he discovers an inconsistency between the digital version & a rare paper page, preserved as “recycled” wallpaper in his favorite Chicago bar, The Library. A quest for answers leads him to discover a secret library of books & the subtle, potent censorship of all written words. Alongside the like-minded readers of the Ex Libris, Holden dedicates himself to freeing the world from the grip of the Publishing House & overthrowing the Editors of The Book, saving the last printed words on earth. As the government’s capacity to outwit the minds of the public reveals itself, Holden is forced to accept that the only way to succeed may be to sacrifice the one thing they love more than life–books.
