Hip, hip, hooray! Gudrun’s Tights is 1 today!
I have so enjoyed writing this blog for the past year and getting to meet so many of you wonderful readers. Blogging is one of the greatest joys of my life and it is all because of you! I do enjoy writing about books and my literary obsessions and might do it regardless of a response, but knowing that I am writing for people who actually read what I write and support my efforts is such a pleasure.
So thank you, thank you, thank you for making this year at my little blog a very happy and fulfilling one.
Birthdays usually involve presents, don’t they? Of course, they do! So I’d like to offer a present to one of my fabulous readers in celebration of my blog birthday. I have a couple of items to choose from:
The postcard set includes 100 postcards of authors published by Penguin Modern Classics. Some of the authors included are D.H. Lawrence (very handsome), Virginia Woolf, Jean Rhys, and Truman Capote. They are simple, chic, black-and-white photos and would look wonderful displayed in a work area or even framed.
The second choice is a brand-new copy of Some Tame Gazelle by Barbara Pym. Pym has become one of my favorite authors (my review of Excellent Women is forthcoming) and if you like funny, quaint, charming domestic fiction she is the author to read.
The giveaway is open internationally – just leave a comment below to enter and tell me which of the two presents you’d like if you win!
Entries will be accepted from now until Tuesday, May 1, 11:59 pm, PST and the winner will be randomly chosen and announced on Wednesday, May 2. One entry per person, please.
Thank you very much for reading, friends! Here’s to another year of blogging and friendship!
