Book Giveaway - This Ain't No Disco: New Wave Album Covers

New wave music was popular in the 1980's, my college years, and I loved it.   You'll find several new wave songs featured on my Music Monday posts, including:  "I Melt With You" (Modern English), "Be Near Me" (ABC),  and "Bizarre Love Triangle" (New Order).

You can find some fun lists of new wave music online:

I am giving away a copy of This Ain't No Disco: New Wave Album Covers (published 2005, Chronicle Books) by Jennifer McKnight-Trontz.  This is a fun book with lots of music memories from the 1980's.  It is in good used condition.

This giveaway will run through Thursday, September 18 at midnight.  I will draw a winner on Friday, September 19.  The winner will need to respond to email within 2 days.  This giveaway is U.S. only.

Entry is easy.  Just leave a comment below with two things:

(1) Your email - comments without an email address will not be published, and will not be eligible for the drawing.

Thanks for reading and good luck in the giveaway!

CONGRATULATIONS to giveaway winner, Susan S.!
