|I am apparently now incapable of keeping HP out of my posts.|
Today marks three years of Soy Chai Bookshelf! I can't believe it's been that long already. It's also my husband's birthday (no, I have no idea why I started a blog on his birthday), which makes it easy to remember. To celebrate my blogiversary, I'm giving away two (gently used) books that I discovered I have doubles of while packing.
Interpreter of Maladies is Jhumpa Lahiri's Pulitzer Prize-winning debut collection of short stories, and The Namesake is her debut novel. I have no idea why I have two copies of both but I love them so it doesn't really matter and I'm excited to share them with new people! I met Jhumpa Lahiri at a reading and signing I went to once. She was actually quite unpleasant, but I was the very last person in a very long line of people getting books signed, so I'm hoping that's the only reason. Either way, I love her writing.
To enter, just leave me a comment saying which book you want. You can enter for both, but I will be giving the books to separate people. I'll announce and e-mail the winners later this week. Oh, and the winners are required to eat Indian food at sometime while reading their book, if only because Lahiri's food descriptions make you hungry.
