As many of you know, I am currently hosting the great give away which will run through September 26th. The reason for the contest is twofold. One, to find new homes for some books I decided to (reluctantly) part with, and two, to celebrate three years in blogland. Yep, that's right. I've been around here since 2009, and to show my appreciation for all my followers and commenters I thought I'd give away some stuff. Here's what's left to win:
Terry Pratchett's The Color of Magic and The Light Fantastic (two books) The first two books of Pratchett's Discworld series. If you ever thought about getting into this series, here's your chance.
Stephanie Meyer's Twlight et al (four books) Love it, hate it, take your pick but here's an opportunity to read these books for free and see what the fuss was about.
A first chapter critique by yours truly.
Roget's Super Thesaurus, 3rd ed.by Mark McCutcheon (2003)
It's easy to win, just be a follower and leave a comment. And to make it even easier, I've been asking questions. Today's is this:
You are sitting at your desk - or wherever it is you write - and within reach are which books? I won't tell you all the books within reach at my work station but among them are three foreign language dictionaries (Arabic, Spanish, and French), The Character Naming Sourcebook, The American Heritage Dictionary (an oldy but goody), Roget's Thesaurus, Sin and Syntax, By Cunning and Craft, and my newest acquisition, Hooked.
Next week things will be a bit different since Monday is a holiday for us here in the US (Labor Day) and Wednesday and Friday will be devoted to First Impressions. But comments will still be recorded and entered for the drawing so I hope you'll come back :)
Oh, and have a super weekend. I'm going over to my brother's to play Skyrim on Saturday night and perhaps I'll have some new accomplishment to report soon ...and here's a little piccie from from my new quarters, not the best, but you can see my little alchemy lab as well as a few potions on the shelves behind me.
