Ann over at Inkpots n'Quills has a lovely competition and here is the link to it - she is running a giveaway for signed copies of Barbara Kingsolver's books The Poisonwood Bible and The Lacuna which I blogged about in my last post as we are reading The Poisonwood Bible for the Bloggers' Book Club as a July choice.
Ann went to a talk in Dublin this week where Barbara Kingsolver was speaking and she is kindly running this giveaway of two Kingsolver books - the aformentioned The Poisonwood Bible, and The Lacuna, her latest. One book will go to the 100th follower of her blog and the other to a follower who posts it on their blog - like I'm doing! Pop by her blog and join/leave a comment - it could be you in the immortal words of the National Lottery!
I am currently enjoying re-visiting the world of the Price family in the turbulent Congo of The Poisonwood Bible and marvelling at how well this book weathers a re-read - not something I do very often but in this case it's a delight.
So I hope this encourages you to read these great books if you haven't done so - and have a great summer wherever you are - even those of you in the winter of the Southern Hemisphere - I loved that aspect of life in Tanzania - fires in June and July in the Southern Highlands a few degrees south of the Equator never lost its appeal to my inner child!
