My blog is one year old - GIVEAWAY!

As I promised in my post yesterday, I'm hosting a giveaway to celebrate my blog's first anniversary!

The winner will receive... a surprise package! (actually, I say it'll be a surprise mostly because I haven't made my mind up yet about what I'm going to offer, haha) But I can tell for sure it'll be mail related items (paper, envelopes, stickers, pens or anything like that)

I'll give you one week to join - so that means you have up till February 2nd, 00:00 (France's time zone, look at the clock on the right to know what time it is here)
How can you join: just leave a comment below with:
-the number of your comment (if your the first person, write #1, if you're the second, write #2 etc)
-your name and country
-your favourite book and/or author (and if you haven't any, just tell me what was the last book your read) I'm a bookworm and therefore I'm always interested in what other people like to read :)
-And please remember to leave me a way to contact you, in case you're the lucky winner :) It can be the link to your blog (if you have one), or your email address.

It doesn't matter if you are a regular reader and commenter of my blog or if you're just new to it - everyone is free to join :) I want to share some love!

So, good luck everyone!!

Love, Tári

  11. Bonjour Tári:

    Bon anniversaire! La prèmiere année de vie de ton blog. Bravo! Merci beaucoup pour partager des beaux images et histoires sur ton courrier et le plaisir d'écrire et recevoir des lettres. C'est bien vrai que nous sommes comment une petite famille où toutes les membres aimons les lettres, les enveloppes, les timbres, mais surtout, la vraie amitié faite par la correspondence.

    Je suis Jerónimo du Mexique.
    Mon livre préféré c'est: Le Petit Prince, la plus belle histoire sur l'amitié et l'amour. Mon auteur préféré c'est Ryszard Kapuscinski.

    Well, I like to read 'boring' books (well, they probably are for most of the girls reading this blog) about geopolitics, for example Stéphane Hessel's "Indignez-vous!" The last book I read was about Egypt and how Egyptians lived under Hosni Mubarak's regime: "Taxi", a book written by Khaled Al-Khamissi.

    Thank you!

  12. #11 Congrats on your blog anniversary. I am from the United States and my favorite author is Eve Ensler. My email address is

    Hello Tarí,
    I'm Vanessa from Germany. I recently discovered some new favorite books: The author is Ben Aaronovitch and the first book of the series is called "Rivers of London". It is about a police constable in London who is solving cases that have to do with ghosts and other mystical things. I really got addicted and read all three books in around two weeks.

    Congrats! I just realized my blog will be one year old in about a week as well! I'll have to think about doing something special then as well :)
    I'm Caddi and from Germany, but I think you already know that. As for a favourite book... hm, that's hard! Currently I love reading the books from George RR Martin, Brent Weeks and Patrick Rothfuss (or lets rather say I loved reading them because there aren't any new ones out right now.) The last book I read though was the one of the 100 year old who climbed out of his window and disappeared and right now I'm reading "El cuaderno de Maya" from Isabel Allende. Very good until now as well!
    So... I can't decide on one single book :)
    Take care!

    Bonjour, Tári!
    First of all, congratulations on your weblog! I'm your regular reader, and I hope you won't give up blogging. I just love your posts! My name's Eva. I'm actually from Spain, but I'm currently living in Morocco. I think you know me and my weblog:

    I'm a kind of bookworm too, so I have not a favourite author. I can't tell you only one, I mean. As MX-DXer, I like reading "boring" books (not boring for me, of course).

    The last book I'm finished is "Going Solo", by Roald Dahl. I only knew this author because of his books for children, which I like ("Charlie and the Chocolate Factory", for instance). But he wrote also some novels for adults. This one is a part of Dahl's autobiography. It speaks about his years in Africa, in the 40s, and then his experience in the Second World War. In Roald Dahl's style, so not boring at all!

    And I'm currently reading "Starter for Ten", by David Nicholls. I recommend it, if you feel like laughing for a while. It's about freshman Brian Jackson's adventures and misadventures at University. It's frankly exhilarating.

    So I wish you a long blog-life, and I wish me luck in your giveaway!

  16. #15! It's Bree here! Congrats on your 1st Bloganniversary!! Keep on blogging and writing more letters and reading! Yay! My favourite author is Nicholas Sparks, as for my favourite book, it's really hard to choose as I'm a bookworm too! Well, I love Norwegian Woods by Murakami. I'm currently reading my Law textbook! :( Pharmacy has many laws and regulations too!

    Greetings from Finland, it's Anni speaking! Congratulations on your anniversary! I only started my blog recently, hopefully it will live to be a year old as well... (:

    I enjoy reading as well, you can take a look at my Goodreads profile if you want to: . Maybe you'll get some ideas from there? (: Lately I've enjoyed Wild by Cheryl Strayed, and I really love Life of Pi (Yann Martel). I've been trying to go see the movie adaptation for a while now, maybe next week I'll finally have the time...

    Happy 1st Anniversary!!!!!!!!!! I've been a regular reader ever since we became pen pals and I always smile when I see my letters in your posts :)
    My favourite book? Well, since I got to Law school I don't read many things that are not related to Law and I just couldn't chooseone book out of the several I really, really liked. So let me tell you my favourite Romanian book: Maitreyi by Mircea Eliade.
    Read it, it's brilliant!

  19. I totally forgot my blog and country -.- sorry!
    and I'm from Germany :)

    My favourite books are the 'A Song of Ice and Fire' series by George R. R. Martin :) And the last book I read was 'The Hallowed Ones' by Laura Bickle. It was quite creepy! x)

    Congratulations on your blogs 1st Anniversary! ^.^

    My favorite book would have to be "The Last Lecture" by Randy Pausch. I'm always inspired when I reread it. :)

    Another hidden reader. For several reasons, typing is not something I enjoy at present -this is why I define myself as "hidden"- but I like reading your posts and would like to wish Happy Blog-anniversary to you, of course!
    A book I really like(d) is "The House of Spirits" by Isabel Allende.

    See you in the P&L FB Group! :)

    My favorite author right now is Cat Patrick (Forgotten, Revived, 3rd book The Originals is coming out this year :D) and the last books I read were Stacey Jay's Juliet Immortal and Isaac Marion's Warm Bodies.. I liked Juliet more than Warm Bodies :)

    I recently tried to tell my Swedish penpal what my favourite book is. Failed miserably. Ended up giving her gazillion authors with gazillion books. :D Oops. :D

    So, last book I read it is. Actually the last book I read is a pretty faous one. Everyone was reading it and its quotes were EVERYWHERE. Maybe one of the more famous ones being "You put the killing thing right between your teeth, but you don’t give it the power to do its killing." So, who did not guess it already, the book is The Fault In Our Stars by John Green. (Fairly good book. :D)

    I can be found under Sille Eero in FB. :)

    I have a favorite book, but the last book I read I think is the seventh book of The Thirty Nine Clues. I'm still reading it.

    Thank you for this giveaway :3


Thanks for your comment! :)
