Book Giveaway: The Great Lenore

Since July 2010, TNBBC has been bringing authors and readers together every month to get behind the book! This unique experience wouldn't be possible without the generous donations of the authors and publishers involved.

I'm excited to to bring you next month's 
Author/Reader Discussion book!

We will be reading and discussing The Great Lenore
with author JM Tohline

In order to stimulate discussion, 
Atticus Books has offered up  
5 paper copies
to residents of the US only

Here is the goodreads description to whet your appetite:

The tale of a ravishing young Brit whose falsely-reported death provides her with an opportunity to begin a new life. Before she can disappear for good, however, she longs to know the reaction of her two-timing husband and his aristocratic family. To find out, Lenore enlists Richard--an outsider in the money-and-booze sodden landscape of Nantucket high society--to be her eyes and ears. As events unfold, Richard discovers the entanglements of Lenore's relationships are more intricate than he ever expected...more intricate even than the secrets within Lenore's miniature punt boat. This elegant debut paints an idyllic island surrounded by reflective seas and encased in a world where souls collide, mysteries thicken, and dreams unravel.(less)

This giveaway will run through July 8th. 
Winners will be announced here and via email on July 9th.

  1. This book sounds interesting! I particularly like the prospect of the protagonist learning the reactions of her death! And of course I would love to participate in the discussion on Goodreads - I don't have any other group-reading-plans for august :-) If I'm the lucky winner, you can contact me via my facebook page:
    I hope it's OK - I don't want to write me e-mail in this comment ;-)

    PS: Just checking: is this contest world-wide?

  2. No, it states in the giveaway that it is us only.

  3. I have been wanting to read this for almost a year! I love these Author-Reader discussions :) Your choices are always great, Lori! my email is karlyw743 at

  4. I would with pleasure participate in discussion, the description of book sound very interesting for me. Came from 2-weeks vacation overseas and fresh ready for new book and discussions!

  5. E-copies are available for those outside the U.S. participating in the discussion.

  6. I'm a sailor and have sailed to Nantucket many times, always finding something new and delightful about "The Faraway Island". I'd love to read this book and share it with a close friend who has a home on Nantucket. It would be a pleasure to participate in the group discussion. My email address is Thank you!

  7. I would love to win a copy and participate in the discussion.

  8. I'd love to read this one! The premise presents a situation that most people will never experience, but I think it's one of those great "what ifs" that crosses all of our minds at some point I'd love to win a copy because I'm on a self-imposed book-purchasing diet. I'm short on money and have a huge TBR pile, so I've decided not to spend any more money on books for the rest of the year. I'd love to join in the discussion as well. My email is mcstone84(at)gmail(dot)com. Thanks for the giveaway!
