 You all know by now how much I love Jo Nesbo?  Yes you do.  You have all listened to me rant and rave over every Nesbo book I've read over the last year...all six of them.  You may or may not know that he has a new one coming out here in the US in October called "Phantom".  Exciting stuff for this Nesbo junkie, I'll tell you. 

So about two months ago, the lovely fairy godmother Pamela Cortland from Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group, contacted me about offering all of you the BEST NESBO GIVEAWAY EVAH.  In honor of the upcoming "Phantom" of course.  And in honor of my 20th wedding anniversary, which is today.  (I figure why not pick today for the festivities?  It is a good day when two people have been married to each other for that long!)

But this is not just one giveaway of one book.  I will be offering two ARCs of "Phantom" (in time for you to receive them and read them before the release date).  

But that's not all!  There is a GRAND PRIZE giveaway as well.  The grand prize winner will get an ARC of "Phantom", plus a paperback copy of "The Leopard" and "The Snowman", the two books that precede "Phantom". 

To enter to win, you must live in the US, and express your interest and your e-mail in the comments before August 30.  I will announce the winners on August 31.  I truly wish you luck because if you have never read Nesbo, he is addictive.  If you have read him, you already know he is addictive, and probably that he is quite handsome, and you will need all of these books.  

Just sharing the love, my friends!

Happy Anniversary to you and your lucky husband! I'm going to be good and not enter since I have a copy of Phantom already, even though I don't have the other two.

Happy anniversary!

no need to enter me because, what a co-inky-dink, I just got a copy of Phantom today from Amazon Vine. I am not the total fan you are (ok, I only read one..) but eager to give Nesbo another try.

Well first and more importantly, HAPPY ANNIVERSARY! That is no small accomplishment. Celebrate in style. And even though The Redbreast didn't do it for me, I do plan on continuing on with him (I have Nemesis) so I'm game to throw my hat into the ring. Thanks!

Whoa, that's an amazing giveaway! Your constant praise of Nesbo made me add him to my TBR list a long time ago, but I've been on the wait list at my library. I would love to win this and get started with his books!
