BBAW 2009 Mahbod Seraji, Rooftops of Tehran Giveaway

Everyone knows I've been raving about Rooftops of Tehran by Mahbod Seraji (click on the link for my review). I even had the pleasure of interviewing Mahbod Seraji as well.

There's been some exciting news about this debut novel. From Broward Community College to the Villanova One Book Program, the book is making its way into students hands across America. Rooftops was selected as Indie Fall and Winter 2009-2010 Book Group favorites, Santa Cruz's Community selection for October, and a September pick for LiteraryMatters.

Rooftops also is being published in nine different languages, and most recently selected for translation into Italian.

Of course, you're probably wondering what all this has to do with you, except that another fantastic author is making readers everywhere happy.

Well, Mahbod Seraji has decided to join the Book Blogger Appreciation Week celebration and offer copies to 3 lucky readers of Savvy Verse & Wit.

To Enter:

1. Leave a comment on this post.

2. If you purchase any of the books, using my Amazon affiliate links this week (Sept. 15-19), that's 5 extra entries (just send me an order #/invoice).

3. Tweet, blog, Facebook, or spread the word about the giveaway for additional entries, just leave me a comment about it.

Deadline to enter is Sept. 20, 2009, at 11:59PM EST.

Double your chances and Check out the BBAW Sponsored Giveaway for this book too.
