Antique Grimm's Fairy Tales Giveaway (Because I Love You)

Dear blog followers,

Because I love and adore you, and you fill my dreary winter days with comments that warm my heart, I have a little giveaway planned for this week (and seriously, it has been a long, long, long time since we've given anything away on here!).

The prize?

A 1913
Color-illustrated
Rand McNally version of
Grimm's Fairy Tales
Illustrated by Hope Dunlap.
(Pictured above, with my lovely hand)


(Yeah, yeah, yeah. My Mac takes pictures of everything backwards, like you're looking at things in a mirror--hence the backward book.)

I hope you just screamed. Or got butterflies. Or started drooling. Because can I just say... 1913 is nearly one-freaking-hundred years old!

Best news of all, this is a totally easy contest to enter. If you're a follower and add a comment, you get a point. If you blog about the contest on your blog, or tweet it on Twitter, you get five more points (just make sure to tell me in the comments! I'll thank you in your blog/Twitter comments so you know I saw it.) Contest ends Friday at 5 p.m. MST.

So, thanks for all the love! Happy Monday!

--Bethany

Well, this is one of the most exciting contests I've seen in a long time and yes, I am drooling. In the last week I've been doing a little research on the brothers stories and this would be an amazing prize to win. I will certainly mention it in my meet an author Monday post later today.

Dude. That's CRAZY. I wants the precioussss. Where in the world did you even get that?!?

Bethany Wiggins said...

Jem, (insert evil laugh) that's a secret I shall never share! But it is totally precious.

What an amazing giveaway! Okay, so, I'll put this on my sidebar, but I'd rather you not enter me because if my kids ever got a hold of this they'd tear it to pieces. Not something I want to happen to a 100-year-old book.

Michelle McLean said...

Awesomeness!!! I tweeted, facebooked, and sticking it on my sidebar :D

Jamie Burch said...

That would be a lovely treasure to add to my collection! Beautiful cover!

Shannon O'Donnell said...
