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 random.org 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!
