August Book Giveaway!

In celebration of my second blogiversary and my personal goal to read 14 books this year, I’m doing twelve book giveaways!!

Check out my post here for the first of the twelve giveaways and why I chose to give away books!

Because the fourth installment of Dan Brown’s Robert Langdon series, “Inferno,” came out in May, I have been giving away one copy of each book in the series in the order they were written. I had planned to just give away “The Lost Symbol” this month, but in light of other books that I would also like to give away, I have decided to bundle the last two books of the series together, so this month, I will be giving away both “The Lost Symbol” AND “Inferno!”

This truly is a fantastic series and each book, regardless of whether I’ve seen the corresponding movies or not, has kept me up late at night on pins and needles turning page after page until I have finished it. Each book is well-thought out, surprising and very well researched. Certainly a book worth cracking!

In the spirit of this series and because the fascination people have in the heady combination of cryptography and religious writing is no better illustrated than in the success of Dan Brown’s Robert Langdon series, I will offer a bonus giveaway! To the first person that correctly solves the following cipher, I will give the honorary cytologist ALL FOUR BOOKS (“Angels & Demons.” “The Da Vinci Code,” “The Lost Symbol,” and “Inferno”) in the series! And I will leave the cipher as a bonus entry for each book in the series that I give away over the next four months until someone correctly solves it. What are the rules? Read on dear reader, read on!
