LOTR Read-Along Giveaway #3

Good morning!  After a good night's sleep and some lovely antibiotics, I'm feeling soooooo much better already.  And so here is the grand giveaway for the end of the read-along!  This time, I'm actually doing two giveaways, with three different prizes total.  As before, you don't have to have participated in the read-along to enter these, but my goodness, doesn't it help?  You'll get extra points if you joined in the discussions or wrote a guest post, etc.

The first giveaway is for a brand-new copy of all three of Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings movies on DVD!  It's the 3-film collection pictured below.  These are the theatrical versions, not the extended ones.  All three films are rated PG-13 and are presented in the widescreen format.  And these are Region-1 discs, so if you don't live in the US or Canada or have access to a machine that will play Region-1 discs, they won't work for you, I'm afraid.  


I ask that you please DO NOT enter this giveaway if you ALREADY own a copy of these movies!  I'd really like them to go to someone who doesn't already have them, but would like to.  (If your parents own them, but you don't, you're still eligible.)  Make sense?  Good.  If you don't own the movies, then enter for a chance to win them with this widget.

The second giveaway is open to everyone!  And you can totally enter this giveaway if you've also entered the one for the movies.  For this one, I'll be drawing two lucky winners!  One person will get this vintage poster.  It's circa 1988 and features the artwork of James Cauty.  It's 13.5" by 19.5", a really nice size for framing or just hanging on the wall. 

You DON'T get any of my mugs, just the poster ;-)
The whole poster is full of amazing details -- look at the way the artist worked the poem about the One Ring into the border here!
You can see Gandalf's ring, Narya, on his hand.

And the other winner will receive this lovely Tolkien journal:

The cover is like a really stiff paperback -- bendy, but not flimsy.
Every pair of pages inside has "curious illustrations of friends and foes of the Nine Companions," as it says on the cover.  This is Bilbo, I think.  They aren't captioned.
Gandalf!  Obviously.

You can enter for a chance to win one of those with this widget:

Both of these giveaways run from today through the end of Tuesday, July 8, 2014.  I'll draw three winners on July 9.  PLEASE be sure you've provided a CURRENT email address to the Rafflecopter widgets so that when I email the winners, they actually get the notification that they've won!  Both giveaways are open world-wide, though please note that the DVDs are Region-1 discs.  If any winner doesn't respond to my notification within one week (by July 16, 2014, in other words), I will draw a different winner and the first one will be out of luck.

    1. Have you seen any of them? It was the first movie that got me to really like (eventually love) Tolkien.
