Charles Dickens Birthday Giveaway

Old-Fashioned Charm

This week has gone amazingly well and I am so thankful for all of you who have participated in celebrating Mr. Dickens's birthday with me! 
In lieu of giving birthday gifts to Charles Dickens (because of course...I can't) I'm giving gifts to three lovely readers! My hope is that these gifts will encourage the winners to read more Dickens and discover his amazing characters and intricate plots for yourself! 

Now for the prizes!


A Charles Dickens Devotional
One lovely reader will receive a copy of this lovely devotional book which includes quotes from Mr. Dickens novels, verses of scripture and a devotional thought. This book is from Thomas Nelson, the same publishers as A Jane Austen Devotional (which I reviewed here) and is of the same high quality.

Oh yay! How lovely of you to host a giveaway! I would choose one of the Dickens novels...:-)

Elizabeth said...

If I were to pick I would go with the novel, and my choice would either be Our Mutual Friend, or A tale of Two cities. :)

AnnaZed said...

How wonderful. I love your site. I think this reminds me that I need to re-read 'Martin Chuzzlewit' whether I win it or not (though winning it would be nice).

Emma said...

I would choose the devotional. :) Reading a bit of classic literature and some scripture seems like a good way to start the morning.

Bluerose said...

Should I confess that I've never read a book by Charles Dickens? Horrible, I know! ;)

I would pick The Pickwick Papers.

Melody said...

Hooray! How lovely! I would choose the devotional, because it's the one that isn't available at the library. (Do you see how practical I am?) But it would be lovely to have one of the novels!

I posted about it on my blog:

And shall be adding your blog button to my sidebar presently.

Thank you!

A wonderful giveaway! It would be hard to choose, but I believe I would choose the devotional. It would entice me to read more scripture along with more of Dickens works.

God bless,
Sarah Grace

How nice of you to host a giveaway, Miss Laurie! And what lovely prizes!
If I won, I would either choose the Charles Dickens devotional or Our Mutual Friend.

Also, I've added the giveaway button to my sidebar!

Thank you so much for your wonderful blog. I look forward to seeing it in my in-box every day. I would love to have the Charles Dickens devotional. I have recently started my morning devotionals again after neglecting them for a long time and would love to have this to help me along. It seems appropriate to honor such an amazing author on a daily basis.

Susan said...

I put a link to your giveaway on my Facebook page also. Hoping for that Charles Dickens Devotional. Thanks for doing this.

Christine said...

I would choose the devotional, because I already own the complete works of Charles Dickens.

I think it would be interesting to read the devotional and perhaps gain new (and biblical insight!) into Dickens' writings. Plus, as one reader commented, the devotional is not available throuhg the library!

Charity U said...

Oh, I would choose a novel -- "Little Dorrit." PLEASE. :) I desperately want to read that!

So, that's one entry...and then I posted: http://austenitis.blogspot.com/2012/02/giveaway.html

And the button is both in my post, and on my blog, on the sidebar. :)

Thank you so much for this awesome giveaway!

Hayden said...

I would chose a novel- Our Mutual Friend, most likely! :D

Hayden said...

I put up the bloggie button!

Payton Wilson said...

I would choose Nicholas Nickelby. I LOVE Dickens, but I've never read that one! =)

If I were to win, I would pick the devotional! :)

Linda said...

I believe I'd pick Little Dorrit.

JaneGS said...

It's a tough choice--I think I would go with Pickwick Papers because I want to reread it but I don't own a copy. I was toying with A Tale of Two Cities because I want to read that one as well, but I have a copy, albeit an old, ratty one from a used bookstore.

Currently I'm reading Little Dorrit, and liking it thus far (about 1/4 done!).

Thanks for the giveaway.

Jillian said...

Thanks for such a great giveaway! I'd love a copy of Nicholas Nickleby. :)

Bethany said...

I think the journal sounds very neat. :-) And I love bookies! :-) Totally addicted...

Novels are good too. :-)

Thanks for doing an awesome giveaway.

Alice said...

Hmmm I'd love a copy of Little Dorrit. ;)
