What am I giving away? Two little Tolkien-related goodies:
|(I apologize for the crummy lighting. I didn't want to wait for a nice day to take the photo and thus delay the giveaway.)|
One is a little Lego keychain with Frodo Baggins on it. This is a bit of official LOTR merchandise that I bought at the Lego store -- you can see that the tag is still attached.
The other is a tiny book I bought from the bookstore a while back. It's called "A Tolkien Treasury" and is edited by Alida Becker, with illustrations by Michael Green and Tim Kirk. It's actually a collection of little quotes, poems, and songs about Tolkien or Middle Earth by lots of different people. My favorite bit is a haiku about the Nazgul, but there's all kinds of fun stuff here. Just an amusing little trifle of a book, really. Would be a perfect addition to a doll's shelf too!
I'm giving both away to one lucky winner -- you can use the widget below to enter. But first I'm going to explain the ways you can earn entries a little bit, so they're clear.
First, you can add one of these buttons to your blog's sidebar and link it to this blog (http://theedgeoftheprecipice.blogspot.com). You automatically get 3 entries that way. You need to provide a link to your blog so I can see you've added it (or already had it displayed).
Second, follow this blog via Google Friend Connect or Bloglovin'. Or be following it already! You need to provide me with the nickname you used when you followed the blog.
Third, post a little something about this giveaway on your own blog. You need to post it before submitting that entry so you can provide a link to your blogpost to earn that entry.
Fourth, if you've participated in this read-along at all BEFORE NOW, you can get 5 entries with one fell swoop. You merely need to provide a link to a post that you commented on (or wrote).
Giveaway runs from today through the end of Tuesday, January 14, 2014. I'll draw a winner on Wednesday. PLEASE be sure you've provided a CURRENT email address to this Rafflecopter widget so that, when I email the winner, they actually get the notification that they've won! This is open world-wide, but if the winner doesn't respond to my notification within one week (by Wednesday, January 22, 2014, in other words), I will draw a different winner and they will be out of luck.

(You may have noticed that this says "LOTR Read-Along Giveaway #1." I'll host another small giveaway when we finish The Two Towers, and another when we finish The Return of the King.)
