February give-away: Religion for Atheists

This morning I promised I’d be strict and leave off blogging until next week. I said I’d get on with my other work this afternoon, and leave the bookishness until Monday, when the February TBYL Book Club kicks off.

But that was before I went for a stroll to check the mail. On checking my mail box, much to my delightful I found a package from Penguin Books, and guess what? It’s not for me…it’s for on of you!

I’ve been going on all week, to just about anyone who’ll listen, about Alain de Botton and how I got to meet him last weekend. I was thrilled to have a copy of his new book Religion for Atheists signed (another title for my collection) and a happy-snap taken for the album.

And now, I’m so pleased to be able to give-away a signed copy of de Botton’s Religion for Atheists to one lucky reader.

To go into the running to win, all you have to do is:

1. Leave a comment on this post, or

…and tell us why you’d like a copy of Religion for Atheists for your bookshelf.

The winner of this month’s competition (selected at random) will receive a signed copy of Religion for Atheists.

    Oh my gosh; since I saw him on Gordon Street the other night with Adam Hills, Alain de Botton has been my new favourite person. I found him fascinating to listen to and had planned to fork out the bucks to buy a copy of this book myself. You’re so lucky to have met him personally! : ) Michelle

      I didn’t see him on Adam Hills, but I’ll have to track it down and have a watch. It really was a privilege to meet him, he’s a great guy and an amazing thinker.

        It’s on iview atm so you can stream it from there. I don’t own a tv, so that’s where all my viewing occurs, after the fact. I waste enough time on this blooming internet to not need the extra distraction of a television set! : )

    I’d love a copy – I’ve been every kind of questioning/agnostic/atheist and shades in between and saw Alain on Gordon St too – he was brilliant 🙂

    Thanks Michelle, I’ll be sure to check it out over the weekend. I was talking to my son just yesterday about the years that me and my hubby didn’t have a TV. He thought we were a bit mad I think, but we loved it!

    I’ve been after copy since I heard him being interviewed on ABC radio. Spoke to the core of my beliefs (or lack of lol).
