Congratulations to Nancy Bekofske, Melissa Seng, and Seth Tucker, winners of last week’s Friday Freebie: American Copper by Shann Ray. Congratulations are also in order to Carl Scott who won the special midweek giveaway of The Beauty of What Remains: Family Lost, Family Found by Susan Johnson Hadler.
Brace yourselves, dear readers—this week’s contest is for one ginormous box of books with a little something for just about everybody. One lucky reader will win the following titles: Let Me Be Frank With You by Richard Ford, Preparation for the Next Life by Atticus Lish, Rooms by Lauren Oliver, The Story of Land and Sea by Katy Simpson Smith, Ten Thousand Saints by Eleanor Henderson, The Sisters Club by Lauren Baratz-Logsted, Say Yes to the Death by Susan McBride, Clinton, Inc.: The Audacious Rebuilding of a Political Machine by Daniel Halper, The Visitors by Sally Beauman, Gutenberg’s Apprentice by Alix Christie, Acts of God by Ellen Gilchrist, Sidney Sheldon’s Reckless by Tilly Bagshawe, and The Girl Who Saved the King of Sweden by Jonas Jonasson. There’s a mix of hardcovers and paperbacks in the box; whenever possible, I’ve linked to the appropriate format.
I timed this giveaway for just before the holidays so you’ll be able to give some of these books as gifts to fellow readers. Unless you want to keep the whole hoard to yourself...which is entirely understandable and acceptable. Keep scrolling for more about each of the books from the publishers’ jacket copy...

Put FRIDAY FREEBIE in the e-mail subject line. One entry per person, please. Despite its name, the Friday Freebie runs all week long and remains open to entries until midnight on Nov. 19, at which time I’ll draw the winning name. I’ll announce the lucky reader on Nov. 20. If you’d like to join the mailing list for the once-a-week newsletter, simply add the words “Sign me up for the newsletter” in the body of your email. Your email address and other personal information will never be sold or given to a third party (except in those instances where the publisher requires a mailing address for sending Friday Freebie winners copies of the book).
Want to double your odds of winning? Get an extra entry in the contest by posting a link to this webpage on your blog, your Facebook wall or by tweeting it on Twitter. Once you’ve done any of those things, send me an additional e-mail saying “I’ve shared” and I’ll put your name in the hat twice.
