Happy Saturday everyone! As you're reading this I'll be off on my way to the Ionian Islands in the ultimate quest to shed my milk bottle pallor before we enter another winter. Perhaps I'll get a glimpse of 'the summer that never was', who knows?! More to the point, I'm leaving you with a little 'thank you!' A few days ago, Snug reached 250 subscribers over Bloglovin' and Google+ - needless to say I'm thrilled!
Of course, you can't count everything by numbers, but I'm very proud of what I've achieved in the past year over here and if you've joined me right from the start or just this hour, I'm delighted to have your company! There really is a wonderful and welcoming community in this part of the internet and I'm so pleased that I decided to stick with this blogging malarkey, you lot are an interesting, beautiful and creative bunch!
Soppy stuff out of the way, I've decided to host my very first giveaway for the occasion and it's themed around books, so no surprises there. This year is Penguin's 80th anniversary and they've released 80 little black classics for the occasion. Always one for miniature books, I picked up a few titles. In fact, I bought double copies of quite a few with the idea of creating a mini book haul to pass on to one of you lovely readers. Titles include;
Of Street Piemen by Henry Mayhew
The Great Fire of London by Samuel Pepys
A Hippo Banquet by Mary Kingsley
Lord Arthur Savile's Crime by Oscar Wilde
A Slip Under the Microscope by H. G. Wells
The Robber Bridegroom by Brother's Grimm
The Old Nurse's Story by Elizabeth Gaskell
The Great Winglebury Duel by Charles Dickens
The Beautiful Cassandra by Jane Austen
The Tinder Box by Hans Christian Andersen
