As you may already know, next week my fourth (and final) book of the year is coming out.

I’m so grateful and excited.

This week—to celebrate that launch—I’m giving away not one, not two, but FIVE free copies of the book. And there are three easy ways to enter:

1. Leave a comment on this post. Tell me about your passion for Prague, let me know where you’re off to next, or just say hi! Your comment counts as one entry.

2. Tweet this post and include @gigigriffis in your tweet (just click the Tweet button on the left of the screen).

3. Share this on Facebook and tag me in your share (you can friend me here). Keep in mind that I’ll have to see your tag in order to count you – so make sure the link works properly!

Entries close on September 24, 2014 at 5:00 p.m. Switzerland time. The winner will be selected by random number generator and announced on September 25 (along with the book’s official launch) here on the blog. Each person can only win one copy and each winner can choose between a Kindle, Nook, or full-color PDF version.

Can’t wait to get your copy of the book? You can buy it now at the special pre-order price of $7.99. And if you win a free copy? I’ll refund your money.

Keep in mind that the price goes up when the book launches next week, so if you definitely want a copy, now is the time to buy!

Looking forward to read through this book and especially to Venky’s article, very excited. About Prague. I love this town, it has many interesting places that you can find even after living here more then 10 years. I love all the big and small parks this place offers and I can recommend Karluv most after midnight when it snows in winter because it is pure magic!

Excellent. Thank you!

Adrielle September 18, 2014 - 4:42 am

Fun, I just arrived in Europe for the year and a city guide to Prague would totally be helpful.

I have to say that I am not personally interested in going to Prague but, winning your book might just change my mind and have it added to my bucket list of places to go and people to see. Thanks.

Good luck with the book launch I am sure it will be a great success.

Funny you should say that…reading and editing all the interviews bumped Prague up a few notches on my 2015 wish-list!

Emily September 18, 2014 - 9:08 am

For anyone who is thinking about maybe going to Prague or mulling over possible Europe destinations: this city is glorious! We were lucky to have a fabulous local tour guide, who happens to also be one of the interviewees in Gigi’s new book. Can’t wait to see the final printed version of this one! :)

I have really enjoyed your postings about travel abroad. I have been fortunate enough to have visited many of the same places you have been as well. I look forward to your book on Prague. Its a magical place.

Ferran September 20, 2014 - 5:10 am

I was in Prague in 1995 with my parents. I’ve heard now it has become a very young city and I want to check it out! :-)

gigigriffis September 20, 2014 - 7:42 am

Excellent – hope you get to go back soon!

Ali September 20, 2014 - 10:53 am

Prague holds a special place in my heart because it’s where Andy and I finally met in person after so many months of Skype and email. It was Thanksgiving weekend, and Prague was cold and it actually snowed a couple times while we were there. Despite being unprepared for such cold weather and being completely miserable, Andy was not swayed. We really need to get back there someday during warm weather.

Congrats on yet another book that is sure to help lots of people explore a city and fall in love with the local side of it.

gigigriffis September 21, 2014 - 4:07 am

Aww, I forgot that Prague was your first meeting spot! :)

Prachi Joshi September 22, 2014 - 8:29 am

Prague is certainly high on my wish-list! But till that happens, Italy is where I’m headed to next month :)

gigigriffis September 22, 2014 - 8:31 am

Oh, enjoy! I LOVE Italy.

Jourdan September 22, 2014 - 8:46 am

Hi Gigi! This book is being published at the perfect time for me since I will be traveling to Prague this December – I would love to win a copy but even if I don’t I plan on buying it! So excited to explore this fascinating country – and see all the twinkling Christmas markets!! Not to mention, I’m totally geeking out about being able to walk the streets that Mozart once walked!! Keep traveling and writing – your stories are inspiring! =)

gigigriffis September 22, 2014 - 9:12 am

Thank you!

Greg & Molly September 23, 2014 - 9:48 am

Prague is one of our favorite cities. Definitely needs to be on everyone’s list of places to visit.

gigigriffis September 23, 2014 - 10:20 am

Yeah. It ranked high on the list of must-sees when I surveyed readers early in the year.
