It's That Time of Year Again...

Central-Park-spring-09012.jpg Bright mornings and late sunsets, those small, budding leaves on trees, the refreshingly warm days ahead of us: for all intents and purposes, spring has arrived. With the recent heat wave, it seems that everyone is ready to shed their winter coats for good (or at least until the Fall chill creeps in) and welcome fresh air, bright flowers, picnics in the park, and massive amounts of greenery.

With the onset of spring comes the slightly less exhilarating task of spring-cleaning. It’s a necessary evil that we all must face at some point. Even at Overlook we must sweep those dusty corners and take inventory of our behemoth bookshelves. In the process, we discovered a deluge of buried treasures: signed copies of books from a variety of genres. We found both The Wentworths and Chemical Pink by Katie Arnoldi if you are at a loss for great park reading and loads of Penny Vincenzi epic romance sagas to make your heart flutter in this season of love. But perhaps spring puts you in more of a creative mood—Milton Glaser’s Art is Work and Drawing is Thinking are stunning books that easily inspire. We also unearthed a few suspense thrillers by the great R.J. Ellory and Dave Zeltserman if you would rather add some dark adventure to your sunny days. Regardless of your plans in the next few months, Overlook is your one-stop shop for spring reading.  In the spirit of spring cleaning—we are willing to give away a stack of these precious signed copies. We’re offering up two books of your choice to three different entrants. For a chance to win, please follow us on Facebook and Twitter (we’re also on Tumblr and Pinterest!), and leave a comment below with your selections. The complete list up for grabs is below:

So many of these sound enjoyable. I've read Free Radicals and liked it a lot. I would love The Wentworths, A Quiet Vendetta or Dead Men.

The Terry Bisson book would be great to score a copy of.

As well as the Milton Glaser's

Wow. David Pierce's Dead Men looks interesting, and so does Free Radicals by Michael Brooks. Wish me luck!
