Here's My Giveaway!

Several of my fellow bloggers whose blogs I follow regularly from time to time post giveaways, and every time I read about one, I think what a good idea it is and how it helps a blogger to get or stay in touch with their readers.

For a few days now, I have been thinking of my own giveaway, to show all of you my appreciation, and today I am finally sitting down to actually post it.

Here is a small collection of four Agatha Christie paperbacks: A Pocket Full of Rye, The Moving Finger, The Thirteen Problems and Miss Marple's Last Cases.

Do not be mislead - Miss Marple does not even feature in all of the stories, and in some of them, she puts in an appearance only during the last third or quarter of the book.

All four books are in very good condition, with no owner's name written in the front or any markings, torn pages etc.; in fact they are in a good enough condition to make a nice little Christmas present for someone you know who likes a bit of an old-fashioned and very British read every now and then.
(Not long ago, a review of "The Moving Finger" was posted
here by Nan, in case you want to find out a bit more about the story.)

This is how it works:
If you want these books (all four of them together), leave me a comment to this post AND send me an email at with your postal address. It does not matter where you live, this giveaway is not limited to Germany or Europe. In case you wish to use the books for a Christmas present, I can wrap them up for you - see to what lengths I am prepared to go; anything for my readers! :-)

The drawing will be today, Sunday, in a week, that is the 12th of December. This should allow everyone enough time to write, AND enough time for me to have the parcel posted to the lucky winner in time for Christmas.

Now, I have no idea what to expect - anything from zero to a dozen answers (since that is the number of my non-anonymous followers) is possible, I suppose!


  1. Yes, please put my name in your pot!
    My mother loved Dame Agatha and had ALL her books, but after she died and in the turmoil of going through her personal library they were donated to her local library!
    I should love to begin an AC collection of my own.

  2. Its a wonderful give a way, a gift from Germany by a English writer wo an American reader (maybe)

  3. What an exciting give-a way! I have the PERFECT spot on my beautiful wall of books for these lovelies and a warm snug-lie blanket to curl up in to read these treasures!
