JAN CLEMSON in Canberra and TEJE ELLIS - across the pond but don't know the exact location.
Over 70 entries to this give away, one of the most popular I have ever done and my appreciative thanks to Oxford University Press World Classics who initially donated one box set and then when I begged for another one, agreed immediately.
I know I am always going on about this wonderful series of books but I love them so much am always glad of an opportunity to write about them. I have collected classic paperbacks from other publishers but now I concentrate totally on those from OUP, not only because of the scholarship which goes into the introduction and the notes etc, but for the pleasure of looking at the gorgeous covers, and the feel of the paper. The font is also clear and well spaced and as I get older and my eyesight not what it was, this is a huge help.
Do check out World Classics here and if you can resist purchasing one or two, then I will be surprised!
So JAN and TEJE please send me your postal address - if you click on the email me link on my blog you should be able to contact me or follow me on Facebook and leave a message for me there. Up to you.
Many many congratulations to you both and my thanks to all of those who took part and, of course to OUP.
Oh and in case you are wondering how I picked the winners I did it in a really really scientific way. Too many entries to write on and cut up slips of paper, so I wrote all the names down on the back of a large bit of old wallpaper, in a huge circle, totally at random and then put it on the floor, stood back and lobbed a sultana at the list (you will have to excuse the use of dried fruit, I have just cooked my Christmas cake) and picked out the name it landed on, repeated the exercise twice and there you have it (oh and I had my eyes closed when I threw the sultana as well).
As I said, really really scientific...
