Day Four (October 8): Alaska Book Week Giveaway!

Featured Bookstore: The Babbling Book, Haines
Featured title: Panhandle Pilot by Bob Adkins

We’re giving away a book each day of Alaska Book Week. To win today’s featured title, just answer the question below (one entry per person per day) before midnight today. The winner will be chosen by random drawing and announced on this site and on Facebook tomorrow. 

Today’s question:  What book about Alaska not yet written would you like to read? Click here to comment.

Yesterday’s winners of our random drawing: Richard Chamberlain, who would like to see The Raven's Gift made into a movie, won a signed copy of Alaskans Die Young by Susan Hudson Johnson. Arne Bue has already written the screenplay for his novel, The Lid, and is ready for the movie! He wins a copy of the anthology Invisible Ink by Homer authors, edited by Joyce Baker Porter. Thank you to everyone who entered! If you didn't win, we still have several more books to give away. And thanks to the Homer Bookstore for donating yesterday's titles.

The Babbling Book has been a Haines institution for more than two decades. Tom and Liz Heywood, the current owners, bought the store in 1998. This year-round, full-service indie bookstore features an extensive Alaska section as well as a surprisingly robust section dedicated solely to Haines authors. Located in the heart of Main Street, The Babbling Book has new books of all kinds, as well as cards, maps, gifts, and a large array of specialty toys. The bookstore is also an outlet for tickets to local performances and raffles for local nonprofits. Most travelers are surprised to find a full service bookstore in a town the size of Haines and appreciate it not only as place to step in out of the rain, but as a literary oasis where it might be least expected.

During Alaska Book Week 2013, The Babbling Book is offering a 20% discount on Alaska books!

Additionally, they generously donated a signed copy of Panhandle Pilot: Twenty Years of Flying in Southeast Alaska by Bob Adkins to the Alaska Book Week Giveaway. 

Thank you, The Babbling Book!

  1. I am working on one but I can't share too much because the first draft isn't even finished yet! I am excited to see other answers.
