Literary Giveaway Blog Hop!

It's been a while since I participated in a blog hop, so I thought I'd join a new one hosted by Judith at Leeswammes' Blog! She hosts these periodically throughout the year, and I've enjoyed entering the giveaways - no YA or romance books allowed, and a lot of people give away classics.

So what am I giving away? A copy of Grendel by John Gardner! I love Gardner's novels and read this one back in July; here's my review. The copy is very lightly used, with the same cover as pictured below.

To enter: Leave a comment on this post with your e-mail. If you're a GFC follower or e-mail subscriber, let me know for some extra points. Following is not required, but it's greatly appreciated! US addresses only, due to shipping. The giveaway's open from October 15 to October 19.
