September's BintoM Monthly Giveaway (#8)


Time for the BintoM Monthly Giveaway meme began, and hosted, by me! =)  I began this because I know I have a habit of comparing books to movies, and vice versa, when a movie is based on a book. 

*I am thinking about having a BintoM blog hop one month.  If you are interested in participating, please email me at:

bannedbookreader@gmail.com


Here are the particulars for this month's giveaway:
  • Towards the end of the month, I will post the next month's giveaway. 
  • I will leave it open for 2 to 3 weeks.  At that time, a winner (or winners, if I'm feeling generous) will be chosen and notified. 
  • I will expect the winner to acknowledge the winning email within 48 hours or another winner will be chosen in their place. 
  • This is now open internationally
  • You do not need to be a GFC follower to win.  Yes, I would like it if you followed me, but I am not making that a stipulation to participate or to win.

September's BintoM Giveaway (ending September 11th) prize pack will consist of:
  
Somewhere In Time book/movie combo


Here's a little bit about both:


I have a brand new paperback copy of Somewhere In Time written by Richard Matheson that I bought from Books-A-Million.

Summary:  Richard Collier, a man of the modern era, becomes obsessed with a woman of another time, a celebrated actress at the turn of the century.  His fascination with Elise McKenna proves strong enough to physically transport him back to 1896, where he meets and woos the woman of his dreams.  But for how long can their passion resist the relentless tide of history?

To go along with the book, I have a brand new copy of Somewhere In Time, the movie:


Blurb:  Somewhere In Time is the story of a young writer who sacrifices his life in the present to find happiness in the past, where true love awaits him.  Young Richard Collier is approached by an elderly woman who gives him an antique gold watch and who pleads with him to return in time to her.  Years later, Richard Collier is overwhelmed by a photograph of a beautiful young woman.  Another picture of this woman in her later years reveals to him that she is the same woman who had given him the gold watch.  Collier then becomes obsessed with returning to 1912 and the beautiful young woman who awaits him there.
