Lovely followers, it’s giveaway time! 

I’ve just recently reached a pretty big follower milestone, and to say thank you I’ll be hosting a giveaway.

Interesting points:

  • You obviously must be following me. It is a thank you giveaway after all. This is the whole point. I’ll check.
  • The photos above have no bearing on what books will be available, I just wanted some photos to stick up there to make it look better.
  • You can like and reblog to enter. I’m not exactly sure how the notes work, but I think if you reblog it more than once from the same place it might not show up on the notes, then again it might. I don’t know how they work.
  • Don’t spam everybody reblogging. It bugs me when I scroll down the dash and see the same giveaway post on someone’s tumblr like ten posts in a row. There’s no reblog limit, but don’t annoy people with it.
  • End date: 16 September at 7pm AEST. I’ll post announcements and stuff when the date gets closer and the time gets closer.
  • I’ll be using a number generating site to pick a winner. There will be one winner.
  • You must have your ask link open and be willing to tell me your address for postage. If you don’t reply within 24 hours of me messaging you I’ll pick another winner.
  • Prize: book(s) to the value of AU$25 from the Book Depository (and hopefully you’ll get a bookmark too!).
  • Of course, BD will have to post to where you are.

I think that’s it, so good luck! Thanks for following!

This is a niche we can get behind: so-called literary vinyl, defined by the Times Literary Supplement blog as “spoken word LPs, singles, and those oddly appealing 10-inch discs.” Collector Greg Gatenby is selling off his 1,700-strong collection for $80,000. But for those of us who grew up listening to 78s of A Child’s Christmas in Wales and Bread and Jam for Frances, the memories are, as the credit-card commercials would say, priceless.
