Cousin Phillis book giveaway!

I am still enjoying a collection of Elizabeth Gaskell's short stories which is named for her longest and final one: Cousin Phillis. So far the story Manchester Marriage is my favourite, but we'll see if I change my mind after finishing the last one.

If you would like a chance to win this book, (and some other ones too!)  head over to Maria Grazia's blog at FLY HIGH! where she has posted an interview with l'il ol' me! The book giveaway deadline is for this book is Monday June 14, 2010.

Maria Grazia informed me who was the lucky winner of this book on June 16th.
I ordered it from The Book Depository that same day. It is a very easy to use online book ordering service which provides Free Shipping almost anywhere in the world! Thanks for letting me know about this company, Maria Grazia!
Oops! I just realized that had I used the link from to The Book Depository website, that a percentage of the profit would go to one of Richard Armitage's suggested charities!
So please follow this link instead!
I just checked the status of the book and it has been dispatched, so it should be on arriving very soon to Claudia in the province of Florence, Italy!

so, I didn't even realize Gaskell had a collection of short stories. Or if I did, I totally forgot. I always think about her works that are made into BBC dramas, you know, the biggies. Thanks for reminding she's got other stuff out there too!
