Giveaway: One Day by David Nicholls (Prize Pack)

One of the movies I'm most looking forward to this summer does not involve Hogwarts . . . it's One Day based on the novel by David Nicholls, opening nationwide on August 19.

In case you haven't yet read the book, here's the synopsis:

Twenty years . . . two people. Directed by Lone Scherfig (director of An Education, Academy Award–nominated for Best Picture), the motion picture One Day is adapted for the screen by David Nicholls from his beloved bestselling novel One Day. After one day together—July 15th, 1988, their college graduation—Emma Morley (Academy Award–nominee Anne Hathaway) and Dexter Mayhew (Jim Sturgess of Across the Universe) begin a friendship that will last a lifetime. She is a working-class girl of principle and ambition who dreams of making the world a better place. He is a wealthy charmer who dreams that the world will be his playground. For the next two decades, key moments of their relationship are experienced over several July 15ths in their lives. Together and apart, we see Dex and Em through their friendship and fights, hopes and missed opportunities, laughter and tears. Somewhere along their journey, these two people realize that what they are searching and hoping for has been there for them all along. As the true meaning of that one day back in 1988 is revealed, they come to terms with the nature of love and life itself.
There is a whole lot of celebrating going on in the days leading up to the movie release, and I'm happy to be part of that excitement and to share some of the One Day love with you.

Thanks to Focus Features for giving me the chance to host a terrific giveaway. In celebration of the movie, I can offer two of my USA/Canadian readers a chance to win a super One Day prize pack. Here's what you get:

Each winner will get an autographed paperback copy of the book One Day (movie tie-in edition, signed by David Nicholls), a clear cosmetic case, a necklace, and a One Day Moleskin journal (click the image to enlarge it). I told you it was a terrific giveaway!

All you have to do is fill out the following form, and I'll use random.org to pick two winners on August 8. After I get confirmation from the pair, I'll delete all personal information from my computer.

I am an Anne Hathaway fan and I think she's going to be terrific in the film. Take a look at the trailer to see what I mean.

For more ways to celebrate, check out the official website for the film, One Day's Facebook page, and the Goodreads sweepstakes.

I've been so excited about this film since I read the book, but I'm also scared that someone how the movie will ruin the book--mainly because it could be hard to do the long interior flashbacks that each character has to fill the reader in with what has happened in his/her life. But fingers crossed it will be a good one!

I read the book and appreciated how it was written but in the end didn't think it was all that great.

Having said that I think it'll translate well to a movie format and will try to see it. :)
