And the winner of the signed paperback of Darker Still is….
Congratulations Darlene!!! I hope you enjoy Darker Still as much as I do!
Darlene has been contacted and the prize has been claimed. Thank you to all who entered and commented with their favorite classic books and authors! It was really interesting reading through the comments. Austen seemed to be the majority winner as far as authors go, and she’s an excellent pick As for me, I’m not sure I can pick a favorite, but as late I’ve been enjoying Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes stories. They’re a lot more readable than I had anticipated and, of course, very clever.
For those of you who aren’t keen on reading the classics, but might be more inclined to listen to them, I found this amazing project last year called Librivox. It’s a free audio library of written works that are public domain, as most of the classics are, and narrated by volunteers. Some narrators are admittedly better than others, but again, it’s free and most classics are available via an mp3 download for instant listening. So check it out if you’re interested:
