Book Giveaway - The Magician's Book, Sponsored by Book Dads

Book Dads is sponsoring a book giveaway. Three lucky winners will receive a copy of The Magician’s Book: A Skeptic’s Adventures in Narnia by Laura Miller.

Here's a description of the book.

THE MAGICIAN’S BOOK is the story of one reader’s long, tumultuous relationship with C.S. Lewis’ The Chronicles of Narnia. Enchanted by its fantastic world as a child, prominent critic Laura Miller returns to the series as an adult to uncover the source of these small books’ mysterious power by looking at their creator, Clive Staples Lewis. What she discovers is not the familiar, idealized image of the author, but a more interesting and ambiguous truth: Lewis’s tragic and troubled childhood, his unconventional love life, and his intense but ultimately doomed friendship with J.R.R. Tolkien.

Finally reclaiming Narnia “for the rest of us,” Miller casts the Chronicles as a profoundly literary creation, and the portal to a life-long adventure in books, art, and the imagination.

The contest ends on Tuesday, November 25th. Head to their site to learn more.

P.S. - How did I learn about this blog and the giveaway? The comment challenge, my friends!


  1. Wow, that looks like a really interesting book. I'm gonna have to tell Eisha about it, too, as she's an even bigger Narnia fan than I am (well, than most people).

    Thanks for the link!

  2. Thanks for visiting and the post about the giveaway. :-)

  3. I want it because I'm a Laura Miller fan. She's awesome.

    thanks for the heads up.

  4. This is my current read and to be reviewed book courtesy of Miriam at Hatchette. There will possibly be a giveaway on my blog when I'm done.
