complete HOP list

It's been quite some time since we've participated in a HOP on To Read or Not To Read, and I'm very excited to participate in this one. I'm giving away a copy of Silver: Return To Treasure Island by Andrew Motion. It's a perfect fit for this hop's theme. I had the great pleasure of reading this book last year, and I think it's one that people will really enjoy. 

It's almost forty years after the events of Robert Louis Stevenson's Treasure Island:  Jim Hawkins now runs an inn called the Hispaniola on the English coast with his son, Jim, and Long John Silver has returned to England to live in obscurity with his daughter, Natty. Their lives are quiet and unremarkable; their adventures have seemingly ended.
      But for Jim and Natty, the adventure is just beginning. One night, Natty approaches young Jim with a proposition: return to Treasure Island and find the remaining treasure that their fathers left behind so many years before. As Jim and Natty set sail in their fathers' footsteps, they quickly learn that this journey will not be easy.  Immediately, they come up against murderous pirates, long-held grudges, and greed and deception lurking in every corner. And when they arrive on Treasure Island, they find terrible scenes awaiting them—difficulties which require all their wit as well as their courage.  Nor does the adventure end there, since they have to sail homeward again... 

This giveaway is open to US/Canada addresses only. You must be at least 13 years old to enter. Don't forget to check out the other blogs hosting giveaways, too.  Good luck!
