Okay, I've got a query for you: Is it worth having iTunes if I don't have any Apple products?

As it is, I have iTunes AND Windows Media Player. I prefer WMP for audiobooks because I can see the length of the book in terms of time (which I use for my reviews) and can increase the speed (though I've been using VLC media player for better tracking recently).

Thus, I don't see much reason for having iTunes... All my music seems to show up in WMP anyway, and the new iT interface is a lot more complicated (and the search function sucks).

In case anyone is interested, I'm giving away a BRAND NEW hardcover copy of Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs on my blog, The Wolf's Den.

A mysterious island. An abandoned orphanage. A strange collection of very curious photographs.

It all waits to be discovered in Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, an unforgettable novel that mixes fiction and photography in a thrilling reading experience. As our story opens, a horrific family tragedy sets sixteen-year-old Jacob journeying to a remote island off the coast of Wales, where he discovers the crumbling ruins of Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children. As Jacob explores its abandoned bedrooms and hallways, it becomes clear that the children were more than just peculiar. They may have been dangerous. They may have been quarantined on a deserted island for good reason. And somehow—impossible though it seems—they may still be alive.

A spine-tingling fantasy illustrated with haunting vintage photography, Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children will delight adults, teens, and anyone who relishes an adventure in the shadows.
Since I will soon be getting my hands on a copy of the paperback, I'm happy to offer up my hardcover in a Giveaway!

Note: this copy has NEVER been read. I checked out a copy from the library to do my review in the likelyhood that I would be holding this giveaway (I'm just not a hardcover gal). So, while this copy has been flipped through a couple times to show pictures, it is otherwise PRISTINE.

Vicki S.
Artist | Hobbyist | Literature
United States
Aspiring writer/editor, interested in YA, Fantasy, Urban Fantasy, and SciFi. Also an avid reader and reviewer in my spare time. I occasionally delve into digital art, but mostly it's touch-ups or tweaking existing work.
In many ways, the work of a critic is easy. We risk very little, yet enjoy a position over those who offer up their work and their selves to our judgment. We thrive on negative criticism, which is fun to write and to read. But the bitter truth we critics must face, is that in the grand scheme of things, the average piece of junk is probably more meaningful than our criticism designating it so. But there are times when a critic truly risks something, and that is in the discovery and defense of the *new*. The world is often unkind to new talent, new creations. The new needs friends.
