Save the Contemporary: Something About You by Julie James

Cover image for Julie James' Something About YouWe do this once in awhile, it’s impossible to predict, and we only fire up the site for books we really, truly dance-down-the-hall love and enjoy. It’s Save the Contemporary Time!

Jane, Jayne, and Sarah (better known as “Jarah”) all loved Julie James’ “Something About You,” which goes on sale today. You can read Sarah’s review here, or Jayne’s review at Dear Author, or you can get busy and win some fun stuff.

Berkley is giving away 20 copies of the book so leave a comment in the next 24 hours over at Save the Contemporary (DO NOT COMMENT HERE TO ENTER) and you’ll be entered to win.

But wait, there’s more: as usual, we have a grand prize for those who help us spread the word and save the contemporary.

Tweet this entry or email it using the links above, or talk about the book under hashtag #stc and you’re entered to win. Blog about it on your site, and let us know at, and you’re entered to win, too. Easy, right?

The prize: An 8G iPod Touch and a bottle of Stags' Leap Petit Syrah – a wine featured in the book. The iPod Touch will be provided by Sarah and Jane, and the wine, if shipping alcohol to your location is possible under state or federal law, will be provided by Julie James. Neither Sarah nor Jane are being compensated for hosting this campaign except that we got to read this really awesome book and hope you’ll give it a try.

The contest ends Friday 5 March and winners will be announced Monday 8 March.

Spread the word, save the contemporary, and help us celebrate this awesome, awesome book!

    I would love to read this book. I haven’t read anything by this author, but have heard very good things. Love to try her for myself!

    I can’t remember the last time I truly enjoyed a straight contemporary. But I WON’T be entering your contest. Nope, you gang of shameless book pimps made this book sound so irresistable that I just ordered it from Amazon. Damn your evil bookslutty ways!
