1st Annual Historical Holiday Blog Hop

Welcome to Book Drunkard’s little portion of the 1st Annual Historical Holiday Blog Hop.  My giveaway is just a small part of the event, so made sure you head over to Passages to the Past where you will find links to more great giveaway!  I’m completely blown away by the generosity of the authors who added their books to the giveaway and as always, my hat is off to Amy who is totally amazing.

Whenever I can give my favourite book to someone who has never read it, it’s a huge excitement for me.  I fell in love with Anne, Gilbert, Diana, Matthew, Marilla and even Rachel, when I was eleven years old.  I want everyone to experience Anne of Green Gables and hopefully love it as much as I did and still do.  As an added bonus, I’m also going to add the first book of another L.M Montgomery series, Emily of New Moon.  It’s as amazing as AoGG.  Please note:  The actually cover of the book may or may not look like the one in the picture.

To enter the giveaway, please leave a comment with your email address and your favourite childhood book.  Maybe I’ll find a new book to fall in love with, too 🙂

PS..  This is an international giveaway!

Contest ends on 17th and the winner will be announced on the 18th.

  1. Wrinkle in Time was my absolute favorite. I read it over and over, until it fell apart, at which point I flipped through the loose pages.
    Before I was old enough to read Wrinkle in Time, my favorite book was Pish, Posh, Said Hieronymus Bosch.
