Contest: Breaking Night by Liz Murray (memoir)

Thanks to Hyperion for sending an additional copy of the new memoir by Liz Murray, Breaking Night.  She's an inspiring young woman who went from homelessness to Harvard, and she chronicles her journey in this book.

I'm offering a new first edition hardcover of Breaking Night to a random winner, from the US or Canada only (sorry!), to be selected on November 5, 2010.  On that date, my own review for the book will post, and the winner will be notified.

The rules are typical:  followers can enter, leaving me an email address or some way to contact them in a comment below.  One extra entry is allotted if a commenter also tweets about the giveaway (just leave a link or your twitter ID).  The winner has 48 hours to respond with mailing information or a new winner is selected.  Please note:  you must be a follower of the blog to enter.

Special thanks to Hyperion for providing two copies, one for review and one for giveaway.
