In (giddy) anticipation thereof, I have decided to give away these copies of The Historian: three MMPs, one of which is my very own well-loved copy from a few years back.
|The rightmost one is my well-loved copy.|
I'm giving them away to the members of the book club who wish to attend but are finding it difficult to secure a copy – and to encourage people to come! A couple of the F2F discussions I've gone to had a good number of attendees, and I can see how it would pose a challenge to keep the discussion ball rolling with a considerable number of attendees, but I think that's the least of my worries. I would actually welcome a good, big number and think of it as everyone coming to celebrate my birthday with me!
However, since these books deserve to have good, caring owners, I'm not just giving them away to anyone who asks (and especially since one of them is my own copy!). I don't have any idea yet regarding the mechanics or rules of choosing the lucky people who will get them, and since the discussion is still a good couple of months away, I'd love to hear your suggestions on how to pick the winners. Of course, I will have to require that the people who will get the books should attend the November F2F. That part is mandatory. :)
Suggestions, anyone? :)
