Friday Giveaway: Alice Eliot - contest closed



I couldn't choose one book to offer today, so I picked two. That means there will be two winners this week.

First book is "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" and "Through The Looking Glass" by Lewis Carroll. It's a lovely collector's edition bound in red leather with gilt edges. It's from Longmeadow Press, 1985.

The second book is T.S. Eliot's "Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats." It's a later printing of the first edition from 1939.

Contest now closed, winners announced shortly.

Such a tough choice, but I think I'd prefer Eliot if I win. Then again, Alice is gorgeous, so I'd be happy with either.

Thanks for the giveaway!

I would prefer the Eliot--my daughter would love it!

Thanks,

Rhea

What a wonderful giveaway! It'll be nice to have each of these books, but maybe my preference declines to "
Alice..."! Many years ago I played her role in a school performance (in English!!):)I like Caroll's style!

I also would love the one with the cats, but I have never read Alice on the other hand, so that might be a good reason to finally do that :)
Thanks for the giveaway!
