Giveaways and a Birthday

Today is a special's J. R. R. Tolkien's birthday! He would be 120 today if he were still alive. Let this encourage you to re-read his Lord of the Rings trilogy, along with The Hobbit (especially since the first movie is just out! Find my review on the right). Please join me in wishing him a happy birthday!

Now, on to the giveaways. I'm not having one (remember though, that I'll have one when there are 200 followers! We're up to 196...), but several other blogs are having them to celebrate the new year, and even a few left over from Christmas. Let's see what you could get!

You could win Downton Abbey Season 3 (or 2 or 1, or you could win a variety of other movies including Brave!) or a $25 gift certificate for Amazon (or $10 for iTunes)...pretty awesome giveaway, huh? Just click HERE for this giveaway! And incidentally...that's a really fun blog to browse too!

Or, you could win The Way of Grace by Cathy Bryant. Again, this giveaway is on one of my favorite blogs, and this book looks well worth reading! Click HERE to go enter.

Finally, you could win Melanie Dickerson's newest release, The Fairest Beauty. It looks like it's a delightful fairy tale retelling! Just click HERE.

There you have it, folks! Go enter some of these awesome giveaways. :) Oh, by the way...this is my 1200th post. :D

*Edit:* It's not Tolkien's 120th birthday, it's his 121st. I'm still thinking in 2012 time...saw someone else post that it was 121st, and thought they were wrong. But I checked my math and...I was wrong. SO. I apologize.
