Give-away Time Again - Who Wants A Hobbit?

Woohoo! It's time for another 'Hobbit' to find its way to a new and loving home! This is the 3rd month of our 'Year Of The Hobbit', and I'm excited to see who'd like a copy for their bookshelf!

The Year Of The Hobbit began in September as my tribute to fabulous literature that's worth passing on and 'getting out there'.  I loved The Hobbit as a child, and it's one of the books that got me really started on my life-long love affair with amazing stories that engage both the mind and the heart.

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. Let's share these magical words around!

To win a copy of The Hobbit, just leave a comment below. The give-away is open until midnight (Melbourne time), next Saturday the 13th of November.

I'll draw the winner using the next day, and post the result.

Where will November's 'Hobbit' find a comfy new home?

Good luck everyone!

P.S: Here's a brief excerpt from the story....

"Very pretty!" said Gandalf. "But I have no time to blow smoke-rings this morning. I am looking for someone to share in an adventure that I am arranging, and it's very difficult to find anyone."

" I should think so - in these parts! We are plain quiet folk and have no use for adventures. Nasty disturbing uncomfortable things! Make you late for dinner! I can't think what anybody sees in them," said our Mr Baggins, and stuck one thumb behind his braces, and blew out another even bigger smoke-ring."

Nasty disturbing things indeed! Fun too!

  1. Dearest Linda,
    These post of yours are great! Do you know what you've got me doing again - I pulled out all three of my extended versions of the Lord of the Rings and am watching them all - commentaries etc! My husband couldn't understand what got into me and I finally realized it was these postings of yours! So thanks! I am really enjoying watching them for the umpteenth time! I'm so glad Peter Jackson and Co is going to be producing The Hobbit!!
    Have a great week!

  2. I would love to read the Hobbit. I am such a Lord of the Rings fan. I can't tell you how many time my husband and I have seen the movies. Too many, I am sure. Great post and wonderful blog.

  3. i want one!! I wonder if I can read it in english. I read a lot of classics in english, I have never read a fantasy book. I always say my cat Milo is a hobbit because he's small and has large feet. I could read the book to him if I win!

  4. I would so love a copy of this book. I'm embarrassed to admit that, as much of a booklover as I am, I have never read this book. Shameful, huh? But I've got the perfect excuse now because it sounds like a great book to read to my kids when they're a little older. I appreciated the excerpt because now I'm sure we will all enjoy it.

  5. Ooooh! I LOVE this book!

    Pick me! Pick me!


  6. Entering again Linda.

    This is such a brilliant giveaway - something truly special.

  7. Yes, I love the Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings series - been quite some time since I read them and my girls are about ready to start the Hobbit now so we'd love a copy :) Thanks Linda


I'm very grateful for your participation.

Until next time may your home be full of lots of love, laughter, and life!

Linda. xx
