Giveaway: Three Vintage Alcotts - contest closed


I know it's not Friday, but I felt like celebrating. The first post of the day happened to be #900 here on Forgotten Bookmarks, so let's mark the occasion with a little giveaway.

Up for grabs are these three Louisa May Alcott books, the oldest being "Little Men" from 1910. All three are well-worn, but the pages are all there and the bindings are holding up.

Contest closed - announcing a winner a moment.

Oh! Eight Cousins is my favorite LMA. Many a night I read it, under the covers with the help of my trusty flashlight.

Deb said...

Time is ticking away and I'm remembering that I first read/or tried to read Little Women when I was 8 yrs. old. I'm 62 now. Time for a reread, me thinks.
You are so generous...I'm willing to pay mailing costs for any other books you find. Not trying to "win" this batch. Just letting you know in case any Bronte's come up... :] Thanks for all you do to support books.

Please please please please please! I love Alcott and have started a collection of her works. I would love to add these--I've been trying to find an older Little Men and Rose was my favorite Alcott character (sorry Jo!). I would love to win this giveaway. I follow you consistently but have never entered a giveaway because I thought the books should go to other people, but now I'm entering! Thank you!
