Talk Like a Pirate -- and WIN!!!!

Avast, me hearties! You come in a fair breeze to visit the merry deck of the pirate ship, Edgy! Me hold be right full bloomin' with book booty, so in honor of this most auspicious of holidays, I am lightening the load so me ship can sail a bit lighter upon the waves.

Holiday, ye ask? Which holiday falls on Monday, September 19th, of this year? Well, I'm aghast ye don't know of it! It be International Talk Like a Pirate Day, of course! And what better booty to be giving away to a bunch of treasure seekers as you scallywags, than a few tomes of adventure and romance upon the high seas?

Want to peek inside me ship's hold and see what books are up for the taking? Here ye be:

Lay me bleeding if I lie, but this treasure chest of four -- that's right, FOUR sea-tossed novels could be transferred to yer very own treasure chest aboard yer very own vessel in as short a time as it takes a blindfolded sailor to walk the plank! But here's the condition (There's always a condition, aye?) Sometime between this venerable holiday and seven sunsets from now (Sunday, September 25th, 2011) ye must leave a comment below --AND, most importantly, ye must word yer comment in yer best possible Pirate Speak to be considered an entry!

(My most humble of piratical gratitudes go to George Choundas for his instructive book, The Pirate Primer: Mastering the Language of Swashbucklers and Rogues, for aiding me to lay me tongue right in concocting ebbry-blastin'-thing o'arrgh-thentic pirate speak for this here giveaway.)

Good luck, me hearties! And may your sails always catch the favorable winds and yer treasure chests be fair to heavin' with books, the best treasures of all!
