Feel the love and do it anyway part two

on February 17, 2010

Heart Book

Valentines Day has come and gone, I hope that those of you who celebrate it were spoilt to your hearts content. And for those of you who don’t, I hope you felt the love anyway.

As for me, I am  not a great fan of Valentines Day, it seems a bit silly to only celebrate love on one day of the year, when there are 365 days in a year to celebrate it. But saying that, I am not averse to receiving gifts, at any time of the year, never mind on only one day of the year!

So, for Valentines Day, I bought myself a book and The Man bought me chocolate – Lindt pistachio and the book I indulged in was ‘Shades of Grey’ by Jasper Fforde. I couldn’t bear the thought of waiting until my birthday, I mean that is still a whole week away!

But, that is not the point of this post, the point is that, because I dont normally celebrate V day, I decided this year, to give away one book to a lucky commenter on the ‘Feel the love, but do it anyway’ post. I so wanted to fulfill all of your imaginary book wishes but alas only one could be fulfilled and that lucky person, chosen via  is Paige from a million miles from normal with her book wish of ‘The Elegance of the hedgehog’ – Muriel Barbery.

Yes, a book from us  to you, free, gratis and the only thing that we ask of you in return, is to write a book review for The Book Club Blog.

We hope you enjoy the book, Paige and even though its a couple of days late, Happy Valentines Day!

    What a good idea – the wandering book one! Wouldn’t it be great if we could get other books wandering too?

    Congrats Paige and isn’t my sister just the cleverest girl in the whole wide world?

  5. Great idea and I am with you on the Valentine’s Day thing. It seems a bit contrived and Hallmarky. What’s wrong with showering those you care about every day?!

  6. […] book, keep your eyes peeled for the review from a million miles from normal who won the ‘feel the love‘ book for valentines […]
