It was all because of the Bloggy Giveaway Carnival, it's huge, so big that I spent most of the evening rummaging around it and entering here there and everywhere!
As my other bloggy persona (the one that's been entering the giveaways!) has very recently had a giveaway, I didn't want to do another one on that website, but neither do I feel that I should be entering giveaways without offering something in return, especially for something as big as this.
So.....this bloggy persona is going to offer a book, it's a rather silly story actually...I'd read this book a few years ago and thoroughly enjoyed it, so much so that I accidentally bought a second copy late last year because the blurb on the back sounded so very good and I couldn't remember whether I'd already got it (admittedly I did take ages trying to remember whether I'd already got it and decided that it wouldn't hurt to buy it anyway as I could always make a present of it!!)
Anyway, without further ado, I offer up London: a social history by Roy Porter - a fabulous book, one that I am willing to post anywhere in the world. It looks a bit dense, but trust me, it is a great book and if you love history and London and social commentaries then this is the book for you, and even if you aren't that much into history then I would still recommend this book as it is quite fascinating.
So, if you would like to win this book, please comment here telling me something about London, whether you've been there and what your favourite place is, or whether you'd love to visit and where you'd like to visit first! (or you can tell me anything you like about London, a quirky fact or story that you know!!)
Oops, nearly forgot, the deadline for this giveaway is midnight (GMT) on the 1st August!
And don't forget that for more giveaways (literally hundreds!) just go and visit the carnival at Bloggy Giveaways!!
