Georgette Heyer Celebration and Giveaway

Here at Burton Book Review there is a permanent spot devoted to Georgette Heyer which I created in January of 2010. It has the complete list of her work, and also serves as my guide for what books I still need to purchase of hers. My goal is (of course!) to own every single one of them. Getting the time to read them will be an entirely different matter.

Sourcebooks now has reissued all of Georgette Heyer's 52 novels, so that your collection won't have the same crumbling vintage feel as mine does.. If you live near a HalfPrice Books, you need to check there because I found a few of the pretty Sourcebook reissues there at a great price.

Have you heard of Georgette Heyer before now? If so, do you remember what or who introduced you to her work? (Sourcebooks introduced me). I fell in love with the clean and classy wit, and the periods in which Heyer wrote are all very intriguing for me. She has romances, mysteries and historicals and I've read a little of each. You can find my reviews linked on my Heyer List Page.

If you would like to enter to win a surprise pack of Heyer novels courtesy of Sourcebooks, please comment here with a "Heyer Moment". Is there a particular book you favored? Sourcebooks wants to hear your personal Heyer stories, and I will choose one commenter to win the Heyer prize pack which will have a mystery, a romance and a historical as the grab-bag prize for one lucky Heyer fan!

The giveaway is open to followers in USA and Canada until Wednesday, August 15th 2012 as part of Sourcebooks' Heyer Birthday Celebration.. and there is even a Facebook page they have created for her; be sure to check it out to get all the latest updates and eBook deals Sourcebooks is planning!
