This is a book about Druids and King Arthur and Anglo Saxon sorcerers and English history and what I’m trying to say is did Philip Carr-Gomm and Richard Heygate write a book especially for me?  That’s so nice thanks!!

I’m not exactly rolling in cash, but 300+ followers is definitely something to celebrate about. So, um, here’s my first giveaway, and here are the rules:

  • You must be following me, and you better believe I will be checking.
  • One person will win one of the above books. These are some of my favourite novels/series that I don’t see on my dash as often as I would like, and I guess I just wanted to share them with you guys.
  • (If you want another book in the series then let me know. Will also accept different books by the same author. For example, Furies of Calderon from The Codex Alera series by Jim Butcher instead of Storm Front from The Dresden Files.)
  • This giveaway is international thanks to the Book Depository.
  • Likes and reblogs both count as separate entries. Please don’t spam your followers, though.
  • You need to be comfortable giving me your shipping address. I have the memory of a teaspoon, so trust me, I will forget your address as soon as I’ve ordered the book.
  • Please keep your ask boxes open so I can contact you.
  • If the winner does not contact me back within 24 hours, I will pick another person.
  • The giveaway ends on the 1st of August.
  • Once you’ve read the book, come talk to me about it. Did you like it? Are you going to read more etc.? It’s not mandatory, but the reason I’m doing this giveaway is to expose more people to my favourites and be able to talk about them.

I’m doing this off my own back, so no endorsement by the authors or tumblr or whatever. The winner will be picked by a random number generator. Good luck, greenies. Oh, and if you have any questions feel free to stop by my ask box.

subwaybookreview:

Green Mars by Kim Stanley Robinson.
Josh: “This is book two of the Martian trilogy. It gives every possible perspective about starting a civilization from zero. The first book is about the colonization of Mars. Book two is about the transnationals vs the underground who live there. Every character has a believable opinion and no one is perfect. It all seems so possible and like it could happen. The author wrote this in the mid 90s and it’s incredible how relevant it is. We’re using up this Earth and the question is where are we going to go? It makes a great example of starting over not being easy, even if you had a chance.”
