Bribery and corruption aka Book giveaway time!

So. After a month of faffing and fiddling, the new blog is starting to take shape and I’m starting to think about finding some people to read it.

Like Pageturners genius master plan to get members to her fab blog, I have decided to launch a bit of an appeal. Unlike her I am happy to offer a bribe.

I have been lucky enough to be given two copies of the next book off the shelf, Maggie O'Farrell's heart rendering account of madness and incarceration, The Vanishing Act of Esme Lennox.

One of those copies will be winging its way to one of my followers two weeks from today, on the 3rd of March.

The idea being, tons of you will click on my little 'follow me button' between now and then. Then I pick a name from a hat and voila! someone gets a shiny new book.

And ‘coz I am feeling full of the joys of spring I will also be putting a Surprise Thing in with the package.

Let the rush slow trickle begin!


  1. Thanks for popping by my blog and I'm glad to discover yours! I've added you to my mad long blogroll as well. Looking forward to reading more of your blog in the future! (I'm also hoping this giveaway is open to Canadians, as I'd love to win a copy of this book!)

  2. it is indeedy! though why anyone would choose NOT to live in london...we have such great weather ;)

    Thanks for following

  3. Oh yeah, we bloggers in London have fabulous weather ;)!

    I've made it over to your blog today after being pretty lax in the mutual reading and responding of late but I like what I see and had already added you to my Google Reader before seeing the give-away! This is a book I've been wanting to read.

  4. Isn't it horrid today? Yesterday I got all excited, then wham...back to rainy gloom. oh well, on the upside i am the proud owner of 5 followers! Thank you!

  5. Make that six!! Thanks for stopping by my blog.

    I love the concept of reading through your own shelves for the year (and not buying new books) - my book "closet" would surely thank me if I adopted such a plan!

  6. I'll throw my name in the hat. I follow on bloglovin' already.

  7. Thanks ladies! your odds are pretty good at the xx
