Bassington Giveaway


Do you think the above is the version read by bears everywhere? In between finishing The Unbearable Bassington and writing my review of it, I stumbled across a copy of it - and, even better, it comes with a wide selection of his short stories too - including my favourite, 'The Story-Teller'.


I'm not just bragging, of course - this little gem is up for grabs. Pop your name in the comments if you'd like me to send this off to you - open worldwide. (Apparently it's available on Kindle for free, so even if you don't win this, you should be able to read it!)

  2. I shouldn't drop my name in as I downloaded this onto my Nook, but I would much prefer to read an actual book! :)

  3. Toss my name in the hat, please - and give Patch a chuck under the chin for me - oh, make that a tight hug instead. :-)

  4. I know I could get it on the Kindle, but it's just too hard to pass up the chance at a real life paper book! I'd like to enter my name, please! Thanks so much... :)

  5. I don't have a kindle, so I'm putting my name in! Your post about Bassington really intrigued me - I'd probably be tempted to skip to the last chapter, but that would ruin it, I expect.

  6. Should I put my name in the hat in order to replace the book you 'borrowed'?

  7. I would love this, Simon. I've read UB but not the short stories & I love those old OUP editions. Thank you.

  9. Because I don't have a Kindle (I have a NOOK) I hope that I can win what is sure to be a great read.

  16. Oh please enter me. I was very intrigued by your review. Your drawing in really cute - I have a soft spot for teddy bears and used to collect them when I was younger (until my collection threatened to consume my bedroom!).

Thanks so much for taking the time to comment - my favourite part of blogging is reading your comments!

Annoyingly, Blogger often messes up with comments... try refreshing, or commenting Anonymously (add your name in, though!) or using Firefox/Chrome instead of Internet Explorer. (Ctrl+c your comment first!)

Failing everything, email me: simondavidthomas[at]yahoo.co.uk - or just email me anyway :)

Thanks!
