Cracking Christmas Giveaway: Day Three

Monday, 3 December 2012


Day Three brings literary gifts.  To be precise:

A Neverland to Wonderland poster from The Literary Gift Company



And a Folio Society copy of All Quiet on the Western Front



How beautiful is the poster please? Utterly perfect for anyone with a love of children's literature or just maps in general.  And words can't express how much I love the Folio Society.  This is a wonderful book and the illustrations and cover make it even better.  Who wouldn't want this gracing their bookshelves?

I very strongly wish I could keep both of these for myself but they're all yours.  Enter below, you lucky, lucky things.

  2. In December I turn either to Harry Potter - Hogwarts always feels festive to me! Or I'll re-read Little Women swiftly followed by an Austen - usually Persuasion or Pride and Prejudice :-) Old favourites are the best at this time of year!

  3. I always enjoy reading A Christmas Carol. I know it's cliche but it makes me feel literary and warm inside. Plus in my head it's read by Simon Callow :)

  7. December for me is all about celebrity biographies! It may not be cool or very literary, but I just love reading all the salacious details of famous people's lives! To be honest, I don't even have to particularly like the person! I'm currently reading The Prince Of Wales by Jonathan Dimbleby, a veritable tome of a book, although I am a total Royalty geek so I'm sure I will plough through it in no time!

  8. At the moment I'm reading The Great Gatsby, in anticipation for the film release. :)
    Also The Night Circus as I've heard so many good things.

  17. I do a lot of rereading in December. I reread "A Christmas Carol" almost every year. Also children's books, especially those with Christmas scenes or chapters. The Little House books are great for that, as is Noel Streatfeild.

  26. I got a strange yearning for Harry Potter, very nostalgic for me as I read the first book when I was about 9 and I more or less grew up alongside harry after that :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. I usually read a light Christmassy fiction novel but I haven't got a new one yet! I'm currently reading J.K. Rowling's The Casual Vacancy :)

  28. Always has to be The Snowman!

  29. AAAARGH BOOK STUFF! I like to re-read Harry Potter because it was a big part of Christmas growing up and I try to get around to reading things that I've bought in charity shops all year and let pile up x

    ReplyDelete
  30. I spotted that map on The Literary Gift site just the other day, and as a children's lit fan, I fell in love! I tend not to re-read but spend time picking a special book I've been meaning to read for ages but haven't got round to - two years ago it was Wicked, last year Discovery of Witches (which left me a bit disappointed, sadly!) Not sure this year - am thinking of giving Game of Thrones ago. Fantast fic fan much, me?

  31. I love reading the old classics like Dickens (although not particularly happy Christmases) but they do paint a picture of the country covered in snow ready for the holiday season.

  32. Literary Christmas specials never really work for me, in the run up I've usually got exams and essay deadlines forcing me to push back the present buying, but then I get a pile of books for Christmas and the week between Christmas and New Years is for me and my books.

  33. Eek how did I miss this one?! BEAUTIFUL MAP!! Every Christmas Eve I get out my ancient (well, as old as me) copy of The Night Before Christmas :) The illustrations are gorgeous x

    ReplyDelete
