Giveaway: The Descendants Book and DVD

Remember a few days ago when I shared with you some information about The Descendants Book to Movie Study guide, and I hinted that I might have a giveaway that would give you a very good reason to make use of this tool?

Since I shared with you a little about the book in my last post, I thought I'd give you some information about the Blu-Ray/DVD:


Experience the Heartbreak and Humor When the Academy Award® and Golden Globe® Winner Comes to Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD March 13

From director Alexander Payne creator of the Oscar® winning Sideways comes one of the Best Pictures of the year, THE DESCENDANTS, featuring a stunning cast including Best Actor nominee George Clooney (Ides of March) and Shailene Woodley (The Secret Life of the American Teenager) in her Golden Globe nominated and Independent Spirit Award winning role. Take home this wonderfully warm and witty film and go behind the scenes of THE DESCENDANTS with all-new exclusive content on Blu-ray Disc Combo Pack and DVD March 13 from Fox Searchlight and Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.

Based on the best-selling novel by Kaui Hart Hemmings and set in Hawaii, THE DESCENDANTS is a sometimes humorous, sometimes tragic journey for Matt King (George Clooney) an indifferent husband and father of two girls, who is forced to re-examine his past and embrace his future when his wife suffers a boating accident off of Waikiki. The event leads to a rapprochement with his young daughters while Matt wrestles with a decision to sell the family’s land handed down from Hawaiian royalty and missionaries.

Nominated for five Academy Awards® and winner for Best Adapted Screenplay, THE DESCENDANTS is a must-have on Blu-ray and DVD. The release is packed with must-see deleted scenes, behind the scenes extras and exclusive featurettes to bring you even further into the story.

I am so excited that I have not only a copy of the novel THE DESCENDANTS by Kaui Hart Hemmings, but also a copy of the DVD! This is an ideal giveaway for those of you who haven't had a chance to read the book and see the movie yet, or for those of you who already have and just want to own them for your personal libraries. Also, I'm thinking that fans of Mr. Clooney wouldn't be too disappointed to win these either!

I am determined not to watch the movie until I have read the book. I have been patiently waiting to receive it from the library. This would solve that problem!
