On the ninth day of Christmas, Overlook Press gave to me...






...THREE NEW P.G. WODEHOUSE TITLES!

First, congratulations to yesterday's winner, Jessica M., who will receive an early copy of STREET KNOWLEDGE by King Adz. Also, a reminder: today is the last day to enter to win TRUE GRIT prizes! Go here to learn more and enter!

Today we're giving away three of our new editions of P.G. Wodehouse titles. One of Overlook's most popular authors, we're re-releasing all of his works in stylish new editions. These have been incredibly well received both for the signature Wodehouse humor and the beautiful Overlook cover designs.

We'll be giving away A Pelican at Blandings, A Prefect's Uncle and Eggs, Beans and Crumpets, all of which are newly available from Overlook.

TO WIN: Leave a blog comment, Tweet this contest, or leave a comment on our Facebook page. You can enter once in every area and we'll announce the winners tomorrow morning as we announce what you can look forward to for the tenth day of Overlook Christmas!

Upcoming: one more book for young adults, one more set of signed books and the final day of Christmas next Tuesday!

Santa, I need these to add to my 30 or so Overlook Wodehouse books I already have... :o)

Yes please! I don't have nearly that many, but I'm slowly replacing my nasty old Wodehouse paperbacks with Overlook magnificence.

Teresa said...

I need some happy Wodehouse books for the cold winter.

Anastasia said...

I agree with Teresa-- Wodehouse is perfect for winter!

Word Lily said...

I need some Wodehouse! I've been wanting to read him for years.

Jesse said...

I just started reading The Girl on the Boat. I love it!

I love Wodehouse and haven't read him in years. Time to start again?:P

Emily said...

Pretty Wodehouse editions! Yes, please. :-)

Oh, Oh, Oh, Please! :)


These would be great fun for our family to read!

Roger said...

This is why Overlook is my favorite publisher. The only thing that might be better is if they found some more Mervyn Peake to publish.

Rose City Reader said...

Count me in! I'm collecting these editions and don't have these particular three. Yippy!

Thank you! The lingering sadness of a too long work-week and lack of Christmas cookies in my afternoon has been vaporized by white-hot, joyous squealing! THANK YOU!!
