Taren at The Chick Manifesto recently reviewed the book The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie. Click on the link to read it. It sounded so good, I went and requested it from paperbackswap.com. There was a little screw up with my order (the guy from whom I ordered it sent it, but didn’t mark it mailed, so paperbackswap automatically requested it from another posting member.)
Long story short — I have two copies now, which is one more than I need. Instead of posting it back on paperbackswap, I thought I’d give it away to one of my readers. Um…which is another idea I learned from Taren.
By the way, I’m about halfway through the book and so far, so good! I might review it myself when it’s done, if I have the time. Also, I’d like to point out that this novel was listed on Time Magazine’s 100 greatest English-language novels of all time.

**EDIT- I should probably have mentioned that the contest ends next Tuesday.
**ANOTHER EDIT- I finished the book last night. It was really good. Not at all what I expected. Muriel Spark is very sparse with her language. There is nothing in that book that you don’t need to know. I don’t think there is a single extraneous word. It took me a few chapters to get used to the style, but once I did, I really enjoyed the book, and I’m still thinking about it a day later.
