Book Challenge and Giveaway - Week 5

 Well y'all, THREE book giveaways have already come and gone, and there is still 8 left (including this one).

 I hope you've enjoyed, and were able to participate, in both Week 1, Week 2, and Week 3 of my 2013 Book Challenge and Giveaway. Please continue to spread the word about my giveaways and my book challenge because I need at least 8 people to enter the giveaway in order for it to work! I'd also love to have you comment on any one of my Challenge posts about your favorite books, quotes, and other bookish fun! 

And of course I'd love to meet you! So head on over to my Guest Book and say hello!

::NOTE:: My reading list (all 11 books I am reading from now until the New Year) can be found on the right side of my blog or here: Book List - Book Challenge & Giveaway 2013.

The BOOK I am reading this week is:

This is a epic and thrilling story of courage, danger, espionage, ingenuity and adventure beneath the sea! Blind Man's Bluff shows for the first time how the Navy sent submarines wired with self-destruct charges into the heart of the Soviet seas to tap crucial underwater telephone cables. Blind Man's Bluff contains an unforgettable array of characters, including he spy who brilliantly guided America's undersea cable tapping on the basis of childhood memories of the Mississippi River; the cowboy sub commander who brazenly outraced torpedoes and couldn't resist sneaking up to within feet of unaware enemy subs...and other fantastic characters!

Stretching from the years immediately after World War II to the present-day spy operations of the Clinton Administration, Blind Man's Bluff is an epic story of daring and deception. It is a magnificent achievement in investigative reporting. And it reads like a spy thriller, but with one important difference---everything in it is true.

Keep up with my progress on GOODREADS!

There has been some confusion with the giveaways, so I am clarifying now: You don't have to do the challenge in order to enter a GIVEAWAY!

with that being said...

The book for the GIVEAWAY this week is:

Blind Man's Bluff: The Untold Story of American Submarine Espionage | by Sherry Sontag and Christopher Drew
