Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter giveaway

I have been waiting for what seems like FOREVER for this book to come out! I was soooo excited when I went to get a copy that I decided to get 2....One for me and One for one randomly selected winner!

Here's the synopsis of the book off of the
Barnes and Noble webpage:

When Abraham Lincoln was nine years old, his mother died from an ailment called the "milk sickness." Only later did he learn that his mother's deadly affliction was actually the work of a local vampire, seeking to collect on Abe's father's unfortunate debts.

When the truth became known to the young Abraham Lincoln, he wrote in his journal: "henceforth my life shall be one of rigorous study and devotion. I shall become learned in all things—a master of mind and body. And this mastery shall have but one purpose."

While Abraham Lincoln is widely lauded for reuniting the North with the South and abolishing slavery from our country, no one has ever understood his valiant fight for what it really was. That is, until Seth Grahame-Smith stumbled upon The Journal of Abraham Lincoln, and became the first living person to lay eyes on it in more than 140 years.

Using the journal as his guide and writing in the grand biographical style of Doris Kearns Goodwin and David McCullough, Seth has reconstructed the true life story of our greatest president for the first time—all while revealing the hidden history behind the Civil War, and uncovering the massive role vampires played in the birth, growth, and near-death of our nation.

Less than century ago Westerns were the enduring genre. Even the television series were populated with western broadcasts: Have Gun Will Travel, Gun Smoke, Bonanza, etc. We now live with vampires that are scattered through out new movies releases and novels. Most notably the book Twilight was released and then came the big screen success of Twilight. I haven’t read any of the books that have spawned because of this new craze; however, my daughter-in-law has offered to loan me some of hers to read. As of this date I haven’t taken her up on the offer, but I did go see the Twilight movie because she stated it was very well done. I must admit I did like the movie! Does this signify I will take the next step and open up a Vampire novel? Your review of Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter sounds intriguing … I think I will tell my daughter-in-law about this latest novel and see if she will read it first as my book platter of unread novels seem to be overflowing with books that are screaming “READ ME!” Very good review and maybe someday I will be opening up this book to read. Thanks for writing this review.
