The good people at Houghton Mifflin Harcourt have agreed to provide three copies of the newly published Good Birders Still Don’t Wear White as a giveaway for you, our beloved readers here at 10,000 Birds. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, Donna just wrote a review of this excellent book of essays which especially includes a stellar look at why New York City birding is the best birding. (And I’d say that essay was stellar even if I wasn’t the one who wrote it.) Because there are three copies of the book to give away we have three different ways you can get one of the books. Read on if getting a free copy of a just-published book is something that interests you…
