First Book Giveaway - News


The past few months on this blog, we have spoken about book giveaways with each post we wrote.

“We’ll get to it.” “There will be one….. Eventually”


Well, now we are here. Finally, after all that time, we will start to give out a book to a reader this month.

Okay, so here are the rules.

Since this is a physical book giveaway, we will be asking you for a physical address, so please keep that in mind.

The whole process is fairly simple. You interact on our social media pages, and you will be eligible for the giveaway.

The giveaway is all month. We will announce the winner at the end of the month.

Now, you may be asking yourself, what book are they giving away? And if you are one of those people who sees all the green around here, and thinks we are going with an Irish-themed book, then you must be new here. (Dude, you are overthinking it. The book we giveaway does not have to do with the theme of the month)


Having said that, if you read this blog of literary nonsense and wise words, then you know which book I am going with for the first giveaway.

My boy, Homer, is getting that nod. That’s right. The books that started it all. (kind of) We are going to give away the boxed set of The Iliad and The Odyssey for this month.


I actually got the set myself, and I can say it is great. No, I am not going to pretend like I read it yet. That would be the millionth time I have read them.

The book was The Bible before The Bible. Everyone in the ancient world had to know it. Evidently, Alexander The Great loved it. And if I can say honestly, I enjoy reading them too. I also love that literature has gotten to the point where we really don’t care if Homer was real or not. I mean, we are giving the writing credit for the books The Iliad and The Odyssey to a man named Homer. We want to learn more about him, but it’s just easier to call him Homer and move on. What is really going to happen; we start to say that the first two great books of western literature were written by someone else? Homer wrote The Iliad, and The Odyssey is a fact of literature, whether or not it really is.

You can see that I am really a Homer nerd, so that is why I picked his books first.

The future book giveaways will probably feature classic books from F. Scott Fitzgerald and Wilde, and Shakespeare, among others, since I know that is what many of you like to read.

So if you want to be in the running for the book giveaway, join our site, follow us, and comment.

Oh, and don’t be an asshole in the comments. That’s not cool.


One last thing, the future giveaways will not be separate posts like this one, but apart of other posts. This is the first one, so I thought it would be nice to separate it from the others.


Also, this one has Homer.
