Birthday giveaway

img-thingIt’s my birthday today and the blog’s third in a couple of weeks so I’d thought I’d combine the 2 celebrations into one post and hold a small giveaway.

I’m off to the cinema this afternoon to see The Martian and then having my family around for supper. ย Tomorrow, ย I’m off to the Cheltenham Literary Festival to four events which I’m very much looking forward too. Post up tomorrow with the details.

The giveaway I have is for a hardback copy of Go Set a Watchman by Harper Lee; the much awaited sequel to To Kill a Mockingbird, this one will be UK only I’m afraid due to cost of postage. But there’s also a ยฃ5 Amazon voucher up for grabs as well which can be gifted internationally. There will, therefore, be 2 winners.

    I forgot to say, I not only read To Kill a Mockingbird but I taught it to three groups of teenagers when I taught English. It was one of my favourite books. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I haven’t read To Kill a Mockingbird, or ‘Go Set’, but they are both on my tbr list. I could read the 2 together if I am lucky enough to win your copy.

    Happy birthday!!

    I read To Kill a Mockingbird back in middle school. Now I’m out of college and feel it’s in desperate need of a reread from me. Some time in the upcoming months I’ll probably be picking it up. ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. October 10, 2015 / 3:45 pm

    Wishing you a very happy birthday! I read Go Set a Watchman when it first came out but only as an ebook, I do intend to get a physical copy at some point, to go with my To Kill a Mockingbird hardback, so I’m happy to be able to enter your competition and be in with a change of winning it. Happy early birthday to your fab blog too. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Happy Birthday. Mockingbird is certainly in my Top 5 books ever. I’ve been worried about reading Watchman because of this, but I think I might be ready for it now!

    Happy Birthday! Yes I read it while in school, one of the best books we ever read x

    So intrigued with this book i’d seen some things on the internet about it which i’m dying to read in the book, completely changes your views on the first Harper Lee novel.

    P.s Happy Birthday to the Blog and Blogette ๐Ÿ™‚
