July Book Giveaway! Divergent by Veronica Roth

By popular choice, Divergent by Veronica Roth will be our giveaway book for the month of July! This book has been receiving rave reviews from all over the internet. A sample:

“I read Divergent not knowing what to expect. What I found was a fascinating and absorbing novel that draws on not only dystopian fiction, but throws in plenty action, some post-apocalyptic themes, currents of mystery and a splash of romance. I highly recommend it.” ~ Rajan Khanna, tor.com

“Be prepared to sit on the edge of your seats as this heart-pounding thriller hypnotizes you until the very last page. DIVERGENT is one of those books that you make time to read. Once I started this captivating page turner, all else was lost. Nothing else existed outside of this book – I didn’t want to put it down.” ~ Tina, Fantastic Book Review

Divergent was a nice balance of action and introspection, which I haven’t really seen yet this year in the books coming out. After the ending, I’m very curious to see where Tris goes from here and I hope wherever she goes, it’ll be full of adventures in a changed society.” ~ Jia, Dear Author

  1. Have you ever looked at your shelves, seen all of the books and thought of them like they were your most prized possessions? It’s not just the story that entices you to read it, but the book itself. The sound of a page being flipped, the old dog eared pages that strike a certain memory or even a smudge on a page that looks familier! Now before anyone mentions anything about “killing trees”, think about how much more eco-friendly a printed book is compared to an eBook. eBooks don’t just kill trees, but they murder them in a violent, out of control way. Books last forever! Besides, how else could you find yourself soothed after a hard day then settling down to your favourite book? It’s just not the same… ❤ books ❤ My heroes!

  2. i think paper books are good and bad it kinda goes with how you look at cutting down trees because with paper books many trees are cut down to make them and with an e book there is no trees harmed but also if you read on the internet too long you should think of what it does to your eyes after awihle.Also the covers on paper books intice you to read them because the picture draws you into reading the story.
