COMPETITION: For Him, For Her Christmas Giveaway


Christmas is just around the corner, and we thought, what better way to celebrate than with a giveaway? When it came to selecting a book for the competition, we hit a bit of a snag – how do we pick one book that people would want, no matter what their gender or interests? Then, we had the bright idea: why not give away two books?

And thus, the For Him, For Her Christmas Giveaway was born. There are five packs to be won, each including one book for him, Fab: An Intimate Life Of Paul McCartney by Howard Sounes, and one book for her, Last Night at Chateau Marmont by Lauren Weisberger.

For your chance to win, simply send an email to [email protected] with the subject ‘For Him, For Her’, telling us about the best book you read this year. Don’t forget to include your full name and postal address. Entries close December 20, 2010.

A special thanks to our friends at HarperCollins Publishers Australia.

Last Night at Chateau Marmont by Lauren Weisberger
The new novel from the million-copy bestselling author of The Devil Wears Prada… Heartbreak, headlines and Hermes — welcome to Brooke’s new world! Brooke and Julian live a happy life in New York — she’s the breadwinner working two jobs and he’s the struggling musician husband. Then Julian is discovered by a Sony exec and becomes an overnight success — and their life changes for ever. Soon they are moving in exclusive circles, dining at the glitziest restaurants, attending the most outrageous parties in town and jetting off to the trendiest hotspots in LA. But Julian’s new-found fame means that Brooke must face the savage attentions of the ruthless paparazzi. And when a scandalous picture hits the front pages, Brooke’s world is turned upside down. Can her marriage survive the events of that fateful night at Chateau Marmont? It’s time for Brooke to decide if she’s going to sink or swim!

Fab: An Intimate Life Of Paul McCartney by Howard Sounes
The living embodiment of The Beatles, a musical juggernaut without parallel, Paul McCartney is undoubtedly the senior figure in pop music today. In this authoritative biography, journalist and acclaimed author Howard Sounes leaves no stone unturned in building the most accurate and extensive profile yet of music’s greatest living legend.  Spanning the entirety of McCartney’s life from early childhood right up to the present day, the book delves deep into the life of this remarkable and often surprising man, revealing the often dark reality behind his consistently positive, relaxed public image. For the first time, Sounes will examine in detail the lifestyle of one of the richest men on the planet, the truth behind his much publicized divorce from Heather Mills, as well as his tempestuous relationship with the other Beatles, with startling revelations. Drawing on countless interviews, legal records and public documents, Howard Sounes’ meticulous approach and brilliant powers of research reveal the real Paul McCartney, like you’ve never known him before.

  1. Dazzlingly colourful and tremendously thought-provoking, Barbara Kingsolver’s ‘The Lucuna’ was for me the best read of the year.

  2. Big, epic and Russian, I finally managed to plough through “Anna Karenina” and it was revelation of storytelling.

  3. Heartbreaking and insightful, Eva Hornung’s ‘Dog Boy’ challenges all of those who believe in human supremacy and social advancement.

  4. Love is a Mix Tape – tore my heart with mix of love and loss – echoing treasured memories of a great love and music long ago

  5. The Lacuna won me, What a fabulous story, It was well crafted and written beautifully, lent it to friends it touched everybody.

  6. Merle’s Door:Lessons from a Freethinking Dog. Author Ted Kerasote. This has to be one of the best books I have ever read. Funny, sad so sad but it highlights the love between man and dog. Fantastic.
