Printed Books Giveaway Hop! Win a Copy of BUILDING STORIES by Chris Ware

printed books hop

This Hop is now over. This winner is Crystal Young. Congrats Crystal, and thank you to everyone who entered!

Thank you to I Am A Reader, Not A Writer for hosting this hop! Many readers have switched over to digital books, but some of us still love to hold a book, turn the pages, slip in a bookmark, and place the book on the shelf alongside our other beautiful books. I’ve gone digital like most book reviewers, but I’m also a book collector at heart, and I will never stop purchasing the real thing. This giveaway hop celebrates BOOKS, the kind made of paper and cloth, with glued or sewn bindings and lovely illustrations that just aren’t the same in digital form.

My giveaway is pretty special, I think, so I really want you to really want this book if you enter. Here’s what one lucky U.S. winner will receive:

Building stories3

Building Stories2

Building stories4

I believe this is the epitome of a printed book. As you can see by the photos above, Building Stories isn’t just a graphic novel, it’s a complete reading journey and experience. The over-sized box contains 14 different pieces of reading material, including comics, a hardcover, and even a fold-out board. Here’s the description from Goodreads:

Building Stories imagines the inhabitants of a three-story Chicago apartment building: a 30-something woman who has yet to find someone with whom to spend the rest of her life; a couple, possibly married, who wonder if they can bear each other’s company another minute; and the building’s landlady, an elderly woman who has lived alone for decades. Taking advantage of the absolute latest advances in wood pulp technology, Building Stories is a book with no deliberate beginning nor end, the scope, ambition, artistry and emotional prevarication beyond anything yet seen from this artist or in this medium, probably for good reason.

This book does contain some mature subject matter, and for that reason you must be 18+ to enter this giveaway. Like I said before, I’m looking for people who really want to win this book, so you must follow this blog via email to enter! (If you already subscribe, yea you!)

    Wow, this is a great giveaway. I love graphic novels, and then to make one that sounds like it is open ended, so we hopefully will get more, is outstanding. Can’t wait to see it.

    This looks fun {my son will love it too but I’d have to go through it first :-)}
    Thanks for the opportunity to win!
