Well, it’s Friday, and it is time to launch the giveaway! As I mentioned the prize is a perfect stack of brand new & wonderful books selected by the marvellous folks at Mr B’s Emporium of Reading Delights. One favourite read from each of them, plus a copy of the two Fox, Finch and Tepper books.  Mr B has also given me some proof reads of some new novels which aren’t out yet to include in the prize. Isn’t he a nice chap?

Look how wonderfully the Mr B’s team have wrapped up the prize? This is how the books from the Reading Year gift arrive. Can you imagine coming home to one of these every month for a year?

The books you can win are:

If I Fall If I Die by Malcolm Christie

The Honours by Tim Clare

Whisky Tango Foxtrot by David Shafer

All The Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr

Villa America by Liza Klaussmann

Hunters in the Dark by Lawrence Osborne

The Islanders by Pascal Garnier

Orient by Christopher Bollen

The Shiralee by D’Arcy Niland

The Next Step In The Dance by Tim Gautreaux

So, how can you win this smorgasbord of literary loveliness? Well, it’s easy peasy.  Just email the Fennell Books address (there is an email button down on the left had side bar) with the title “Mr B’s Giveaway” and I will enter you into the draw, or leave a comment down below saying you want to enter. The closing date is Thursday 13th August 2015 at 2000 UK Time.

Notes:

1. I’m afraid, due to the postage costs it is UK addresses only.  

2. Only one entry per person, you can comment as many times as you like, but you will only get one entry

3. Comments on Facebook won’t be entered.

4. No cash alternative will be offered.

5. Entries after the closing date and time will not be entered.

6. The Delightful Mr F will pick the winner at random, and his decision is final. 

GOOD LUCK!

Prepare the Bunting!

What, I hear you ask, could summon the need for that most British of summer decoration; namely, the bunting? Well, on Saturday 8th August 2015, Fennell Books will reach a momentous landmark. On Saturday, I will publish my 250th book review! It’s a corker of a book too, but I won’t spoil that, you can see which one it is on Saturday.

In celebration (and slight shock) of this milestone, I am hosting the very first Fennell Books giveaway. I had a lovely chat with the folks at Mr B’s Emporium of Reading Delights, and they have selected their favourite reads of 2015 so far. It’s a fantastic stack of beautiful, brand new books*, one from each of the Mr B’s team. As with all the Mr B’s recommendations, they are eclectic, high quality and unusual.

The giveaway will be launched on Friday 7th August with the details of the books you can win and how to enter**, so please do pop back then.

In the meantime, The Delightful Mr F has emerged from the attic with the aforementioned bunting, and is happily stringing it up around Fennell Towers. We have some nice cake and a pot of tea on the go, and may even partake in some pass the parcel later.

See you Friday!

 

*I promise I won’t read them before sending them to the winner!

** Entry doesn’t require a 10000 word essay on the finer points of Chaucer, it is a bit more pot luck than that.
