Dreaming of Books Giveaway Hop!

Welcome to the Second Annual Dreaming of Books Giveaway Hop.

Nearly 200 blogs are each hosting a giveaway for something a reader, author or blogger would enjoy! Library of Clean Reads is giving away a copy of:

What is the book about:
A side-splitting tour that makes it a blast to read the Western literary canon, from the ancient Greeks to the Modernists.
To many, the Great Books evoke angst: the complicated Renaissance dramas we bluffed our way through in college, the dusty Everyman’s Library editions that look classy on the shelf but make us feel guilty because they’ve never been opened. On a mission to restore the West’s great works to their rightful place (they were intended to be entertaining!), Sandra Newman has produced a reading guide like no other. Beginning with Greek and Roman literature, she takes readers through hilarious detours and captivating historical tidbits on the road to Modernism. Along the way, we find parallels between Rabelais andSouth Park, Jane Austen and Sex and the City, Jonathan Swift and Jon Stewart, uncovering the original humor and riskiness that propelled great authors to celebrity.
Packed with pop culture gems, stories of literary hoaxes, ironic day jobs for authors, bad reviews of books that would later become classics, and more.

What did we think of this book:
