Twitter Deal Alert! NOOK Summer Weekend Reads offer is THE GATHERING by Anne Enright for $3.99!

June 23, 2012 Leave a comment

I don’t know how long B&N has had this promo, but for this weekend – their new NOOK Summer Weekend Reads offer is THE GATHERING by Anne Enright for $3.99!

The book is $8.80 for US Kindle, so hopefully, Amazon will price-match!

THE GATHERING by Anne Enright

Book Description

Winner of the 2007 Man Booker Prize for Fiction

Anne Enright is a dazzling writer of international stature and one of Ireland’s most singular voices. Now she delivers The Gathering, a moving, evocative portrait of a large Irish family and a shot of fresh blood into the Irish literary tradition, combining the lyricism of the old with the shock of the new.

The nine surviving children of the Hegarty clan are gathering in Dublin for the wake of their wayward brother, Liam, drowned in the sea. His sister, Veronica, collects the body and keeps the dead man company, guarding the secret she shares with him—something that happened in their grandmother’s house in the winter of 1968.

As Enright traces the line of betrayal and redemption through three generations, her distinctive intelligence twists the world a fraction and gives it back to us in a new and unforgettable light. The Gathering is a daring, witty, and insightful family epic, clarified through Anne Enright’s unblinking eye. It is a novel about love and disappointment, about how memories warp and secrets fester, and how fate is written in the body, not in the stars.

Twitter Deal Alert! NOOK Summer Weekend Reads offer is The Zookeeper’s Wife: A War Story by Diane Ackerman for $3.99!

June 16, 2012 Leave a comment

I don’t know how long B&N has had this promo, but for this weekend – their new NOOK Summer Weekend Reads offer is THE ZOOKEEPER’S WIFE : A War Story by Diane Ackerman for $3.99!

The book is $8.52 for US Kindle (well, it’s free if you’ve got Prime), so hopefully, Amazon will price-match!

The Zookeeper's Wife: A War Story by Diane Ackerman

Book Description

A true story—as powerful as Schindler’s List—in which the keepers of the Warsaw Zoo saved hundreds of people from Nazi hands.

When Germany invaded Poland, Stuka bombers devastated Warsaw—and the city’s zoo along with it. With most of their animals dead, zookeepers Jan and Antonina Zabinski began smuggling Jews into empty cages. Another dozen “guests” hid inside the Zabinskis’ villa, emerging after dark for dinner, socializing, and, during rare moments of calm, piano concerts. Jan, active in the Polish resistance, kept ammunition buried in the elephant enclosure and stashed explosives in the animal hospital. Meanwhile, Antonina kept her unusual household afloat, caring for both its human and its animal inhabitants—otters, a badger, hyena pups, lynxes.

With her exuberant prose and exquisite sensitivity to the natural world, Diane Ackerman engages us viscerally in the lives of the zoo animals, their keepers, and their hidden visitors. She shows us how Antonina refused to give in to the penetrating fear of discovery, keeping alive an atmosphere of play and innocence even as Europe crumbled around her.
