Contest Giveaway 2 copies of Rules of Betrayal byChristopher Reich

I am giving away 2 copies of Rules of  Betrayal by Christopher Reich
Here are the rules:

1. You must be a follower of this blog
Rules of Betrayal
2.U.S residents only

3.This rule is  very important
Leave your email address in the comment section of this post
and the trivia question is Do you own a Kindle or do you prefer traditional books?
Besides the fact that I am too broke to own one.  I prefer books .  One of my fondest memories
as a 3rd grader at Sanderson Elementary(now named Cook)  was waiting on the Bookmobile to
come every week.  I had the same anticipation as any child would if it were Christmas Eve and fully
aware of just how many presents under the tree were for them!  (Except my feeling was better because
I had it every week)So I can't see myself trading in that warm ,fuzziness for a ........Kindle.  So tell me what you think?If given a choice which do you prefer

I am a follower of your blog. I live in the US. I own a Kindle, however it hasn't taken away my love of traditional books. I much prefer traditional books. My Kindle is just a convenience that I use occasionally when I can't find the book that I want easily.

I am a gfc follower. I will never own an kindle (unless someone gives me one). I just can't imagine not having a book in my hands. The smell of the paper, the feel of the paper, I couldn't give that up.

I am a follower of your blog. I have Kindle for my Android. I just got it two weeks ago and am on my second book on it. I think I still prefer the paper books, but it nice to not have to lug a book around in my purse, since I have to have a book with me at all times LOL. polsen11atcomcastdotnet

Poem: In Texas Grass by Quincy Troupe

All along the rail
                                road tracks of texas
                               old train cars lay
                               rusted &overturned
                              like new african governments
                             long forgotten by the people
                              who built & rode them
                                till they couldn't run no more,
                              they remind me of old race horses
                             who've been put out to pasture
                            amongst the weeds
                            rain sleet &snow
                            till they die,rot away
                            like photos fading
                           in grandma's picture book,
                         of old black men in mississippi/texas
                         who sit on dilapidated porches,
                        that fall away
                       like dead man'…

The Speed of Belief by Tracy K Smith (poem)

I didn't want to wait on my knees
In a room made quiet by waiting. A room where we'd listen for the rise
Of breath, the burble in his throat. I didn't want the orchids or the trays
Of food meant to fortify that silence, Or to pray for him to stay or to go then
Finally toward that ecstatic light I didn't want to believe
What we believe in those rooms: That we are blessed, letting go,
Letting someone, anyone, Drag open the drapes and heave us Bak into our blinding, bright lives When your own sweet father died You woke before first light And ate half a plate of eggs and grits, And Drank a glass of milk. After  you'd left, I sat in your place And finished  the toast bits with jam And the cold eggs, the thick bacon Flanged in fat , savoring the taste. Then I slept, too young to know how narrow And grave the road before you seemed--- All the houses zipped tight , the night's Few clouds muddy as cold coffee. You stayed gone a week, and who were we Without your clean p…

The Life I led by Nikki Giovanni (poem)

i know my upper arms will grow
flabby it's true
of all the women in my family
i know that the purple views
like dead fish in Seine
will dot my legs one day
and my hands will wither while
my hair turns grayish white I know that
one day my teeth will move when
my lips smile
and a flutter of hair will appear
below my nose I hope
my skin doesn't change to those blotchy

i want my menses to be undifficult
i'd  very much prefer staying firm and slim
to grow old like a vintage wine fermenting
in old wooden vats with style
i'd like to be exquisite  I think

i will look forward to grandchildren
and my flowers  all my knickknacks in their places
and that quiet of the bombs not falling on Cambodia
settling  over my sagging breasts

i hope my shoulder finds a head that needs nestling
and my feet find a footstool after a good soaking
with Epsom salts

i hope I die
by the life I tried
to live
