Well, it’s taken me two weeks, but I have finally managed to get a Which? What? Who? post in on time. Yay me!
I have been greatly distracted over the past 4 days by a Twitter competition run by Penguin Books Australia. (@PenguinBooksAus) offering $2000 worth of Penguin book to the best answer for the question “Why did the penguin cross the road”.
There were some very creative answers (including some absolute winners from me, thank you very much) and I particularly enjoyed some of the photographic answers, particularly these from Jane Wills and James Tinniswood.
Sadly, Penguin Australia did not see the incredible wit of my replies and I didn’t even manage to score an honourable mention in the competition results. The experience was not a total loss however. I did create a Popular Penguins Reading Challenge thanks to the experience and am toying with the idea of a Penguin Classics Reading Challenge as well (but don’t tell Meredith or I will get a lecture on over-committing myself).
For those who missed out on the Penguin giveaway, you should visit Natasha at Maw Books, who is offering a signed copy of Neil Gaiman’s The Graveyard Book. Full entry details are at her blog and entries close 23rd July 2009. I’ve got my fingers crossed.
Tree Swing Reading also has a great Christian Book Giveaway, offering copies of all the titles nominated for the Christy Award. Visit the blog to put your name in the draw for any titles that interest you (or all of them if you want). Entries close on the 30th July 2009.
I know it isn’t book related, but I just have to include a link to my post at Oh, the Thinks you can Think about the new ad campaign for Perfect Italiano. It works for me.
