Celebrating Daphne du Maurier's 102th Birthday with giveaways at Peeking Between the Pages & by Booking Mama & by The Tome Traveller's Weblog!

I just wanted to share these wonderful giveaways from Sourcebooks and Peeking Between the Pages, Booking Mama and The Tome Traveller's Weblog to celebrate Daphne du Maurier's 102th birthday.

Peeking Between the Pages and The Tome Traveller's Weblog are both offering their readers the choice of either Frenchman's Creek or My Cousin Rachel until May 31, 2009.

Booking Mama is also holding a special Daphne du Maurier birthday giveaway which ends on May 27. She's giving a copy of Frenchman's Creek here.

I know Dame Daphne du Maurier mainly for her novel Rebecca, one of my mother's favorites. Rebecca's first line is quite famous, "Last night I dreamt I went to Manderley again..."
The book was made into an Alfred Hitchcock movie and won an Oscar.

From these contests and Daphne du Maurier's website, I learned quite a bit more about du Maurier. Did you know that Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds was based on a du Maurier short story?
