Offer: Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein, UK paperback edition with signed bookplate by author
estara wrote in con_or_bust
Item Name & Description: I'm offering a new paperback of the Egmont UK edition for Elizabeth Wein's new novel Code Name Verity which was just released on February 6th. The US and Canada will only get this book on May 15th, and as a hardcover. This book is not signed, by the way. ETA: Elizabeth Wein has just offered to add a signed bookplate to the book!

Here's the cover copy (written by the author herself, by the way)

I have two weeks. You'll shoot me at the end no matter what I do.

That's what you do to enemy agents. It's what we do to enemy agents. But I look at all the dark and twisted roads ahead and cooperation is the easy way out. Possibly the only way out for a girl caught red-handed doing dirty work like mine - and I will do anything, anything, to avoid SS-Hauptsturmführer von Linden interrogating me again.

He has said that I can have as much paper as I need. All I have to do is cough up everything I can remember about the British War Effort. And I'm going to. But the story of how I came to be here starts with my friend Maddie. She is the pilot who flew me into France - an Allied Invasion of Two.

We are a sensational team.

Code Name Verity

Starting Bid: 10 $

Notes: I'll be sending the book (which is on my desk in a pristine unread condition as I type this) worldwide, but you should be aware that I live in Germany so it's likely to take some time to get to a non-European winner.

E-mail: Estara at gmx dot net

Bidding starts Saturday, February 11, 2012 at 12:01 a.m. EST (GMT -5) and ends Sunday, February 26, 2012 at 11:59 p.m. EST.

Hello, Misura, you've won the auction ^^. Please send me a screenshot about your donation once you've made that and we can get in touch on where I should send the book - the signed bookmark has arrived already ^^.

I will throw in a signed bookplate for Estara to stick in the book, just to sweeten it up a bit!

That is SO cool! I'll amend my offer.
