Giveaway: The Weave of My Life

Book Bloggers Appreciation Week is going strong, and here's another giveaway to celebrate books and readers (including book bloggers)!

I'm holding a giveaway for my hardback review copy of The Weave of My Life: A Dalit Woman's Memoirs by Urmila Pawar. You can learn more about the book by reading my review.

This contest is open to USA and Canada residents.

To enter the giveaway:

1) you can twitter me saying "@genrereviewer Enter me to win THE WEAVE OF MY LIFE. The title of another book from @ColumbiaUP is ________." (Of course, you need to fill in the title of another book published by Columbia University Press. Hint: look here.)


2) You can leave a comment to this post asking to be entered and giving the title of another book published by Columbia University Press.

The winner will be randomly selected. I'll announce the winner at noon (Central Time, Daylight Savings Time) on September 23, 2009 on this blog. If you entered using twitter, I'll send you a @ or DM telling you of your win and asking where to send the book. If you entered using the blog comments, you'll need to leave your e-mail address or check back to see if you won so you can e-mail me your shipping address.

I hope everyone has fun with this!

This memoir sounds really good. I've always wanted to learn more about the caste system in India. One other book published by the Columbia University Press is Mencia.

Memoirs are one of my favorite genres to read. Another book is the History of the Mafia.

Thanks for the chance.

I would LOVE to read this book! I find the caste system in India absolutely fascinating.

I'd also like to read Field Notes from Elsewhere: Reflections on Dying and Living by Mark C. Taylor. I read some of Elisabeth Kubler-Ross's work, and am really interested in works that help those who are grieving.
