Wednesday Giveaway 2

I find myself giving this book away due to space issues. Since I have an edition on my Nook, I feel compelled to give away my paperback edition.

Tess of the d'Urbervilles is the story of a young girl who just can't seem to catch a break. Starting when she is very young, the story follows her as she goes from one location to the next, trying to find her place in the world around her. Unfortunately, finding her place doesn't last long as she is hit with misfortune after misfortune.

While it seems that this would be a rather depressing story, it is actually one I greatly enjoyed reading this past year. I loved the characters, Tess in particular, and Hardy does an incredible job of making all of Tess so believable and lovable.

I recommend everyone read this book at some point. And if you find yourself needing a copy, I have this spare one that will soon need a new home! This is a paperback edition in excellent condition. While it does not look exactly like the picture above, this Wordsworth Classics edition is complete and unabridged. With an introduction and notes written for different editions, it also contains Notes and a list of other Wordsworth Classics at the end of its 356 pages.
Shoot me a message and I will send a request your way for your mailing information. I hope you enjoy the book as much as I did.
