I think the book in today’s giveaway is going to prove to be right up your street:

THE PRIZE:  Per Amazon:

For a small-town girl with big-city dreams, there is no address more glamorous than New York’s Barbizon Hotel. Laura, a patrician beauty from Smith, arrives to work at Mademoiselle for the summer. Her hopelessly romantic roommate, Dolly, comes from a working-class upstate town to attend secretarial school. Vivian, a brash British bombshell with a disregard for the hotel’s rules, rounds out the trio of friends. Together, the girls embark on a journey of discovery that will take them from the penthouse apartments of Park Avenue to the Beat scene of Greenwich Village to Atlantic City’s Steel Pier — and into the arms of very different men who will alter their lives forever.

I am ALL ABOUT people having romantical dramas and journeys of discoveries in Olden Times, as you will know, and I can’t wait to read this one. We are lucky enough to have five five FIVE copies to give away here today.

THE TASK: I shall be picking the winner at random, but please comment and tell us which ACTUAL hotel you’d most like to move into, if they let you. PRICE IS NO OBJECT. (I’m moving into Claridges.) Good luck!

THE RULES: All entries must be posted in the comments of this post by 9 p.m. Pacific time on Monday. (US and Canada residents only, unfortunately.) FYI, if this is the first time you’ve commented here, (a) I’m very glad you’re here and (b) the system will automatically kick you into comment moderation, but don’t worry, I will rescue you
