The Year Of The Hobbit - Give-away Number 2... Plus, Blogtoberfest!

The Year Of The Hobbit began last month as my tribute to fabulous literature that's worth passing on and 'getting out there'.

You can read more about its beginnings and the reasons behind it here.

But, briefly, my hope is who-ever wins each book will enjoy it themselves and/or pass it onto someone else..... their children, a friend's children, the local school.

As a primary school teacher (amongst other things!) myself, I know how important great literature can be to the life of a child.

So, this is my small attempt to 'spread a little love', book style!

Plus, it's an extra important month this month because it's Blogtoberfest!! Blogtoberfest is a month long festival of blogging that also includes heaps of give-aways!

So this month, I'm also celebrating Blogtoberfest with this give-away. If you'd like to join in the Blogtoberfest fun, visit Tinnie Girl's blog to find out more.

To win a copy of The Hobbit, just leave a comment below! The give-away is open until midnight (Melbourne time), next Saturday the 9th of October. I'll draw the winner using the next day, and post the result.

Where will October's 'Hobbit' find a home?

Good luck everyone!

P.S: Here's another riddle from the book. (The first riddle is here). Do you know the answer?

'What has roots as nobody sees,
Is taller than trees
Up, up it goes,
And yet never grows?'

  1. Hi Linda,
    Oh my...The Hobbit is one of the best books ever! I read it when I was in high school (long long ago... and in a far away land from where I am now...!!) and again two years ago! Can't wait for the movie!
    But don't put my name in the give away...I'm looking at my copy of the Hobbit. Give it to someone who doesn't have it!! I'm just writing to tell you that it's a great idea and I totally agree with you in your assessment of it! One of the best books ever and well done to you for telling people about it!

  2. I've never read it but would love to try it. Thanks for the giveaway!
