Let's Read Play Closing Giveaway!

So here we are in our closing stage of Let's Read Play. I honestly feel kind of sad.

I must admit I have not been a decent co-host. I mean, reading is one thing but reviewing is a totally different matter. Though I read along with you all, it was pretty hard for me to post some reviews on time. Some? Ok, many >_<

Some plays just caught me, so much so I just stared at that blank Blogger page the whole day. Like Othello, or The Death of A Salesman. Both got me cry for different reasons.

I felt that Othello's tragedy is pretty ironic, and that guy Iago is soo annoyingly ingenious. On top of that, I felt this weird urge to get a strawberry handkerchief of my own! XD

Wait.. Noo! Not Strawberry Shortcake! XD (though I also love her :D) | Source

The Death of A Salesman touched me in a more personal sense. It reminded me of my late-father. I pray, that he didn't have the same regrets and concerns flashing through his mind - the way Mr. Loman did - before he died. It was extremely heart-breaking for me.

And then of course, I had a crush on a character. Well, what's reading without a crush or two :D And who is this lucky man? Wilde's Lord Goring. He has that ability in playing with words, delivering epigrams, like usual Wilde's characters do. But he has some kind of depth I haven't seen in other Wilde's works I've read. Almost romantic also.

Now, back to business. I'm about to announce a closing giveaway, aren't I? So here we go.

1. Write a post, tell me about a play or a character that caught you the most; the one that you love or hate so much. The play or character that you think will stick with you even after this event is over.
If you plan it to have a wrap up post for this event, then you only need to add the play/character you want to highlight into it.

2. After that, like usual, put the link of your post to the linky. One person, one post.

3. We have until end of November before I randomly pick the winner.

4. The winner will get $10 to spend at Bookdepository.

5. This giveaway is valid only when we have at least 2 (two) entries, so that the random process can be executed.

6. If we have more than 11 entries, which means more than half of LRP participants are taking part in this giveaway, I'll pick  the 2nd winner! :D

That's it! Have fun, and goodluck!

Let's Read Play Surprise Gift!

We are reaching the last stage of our event. Time flies!
As a token of appreciation to those who (unlike me) post their reviews regularly, I'm giving away a surprise gift!

This is how I picked the winner:
On October 10, 9 PM local time, we had 79 entries.
With the help from our infamous, I shuffled those 79 entries to get the winner.
Of course, should it hit Fanda's reviews or mine, the process is to be repeated.
Luckily I didn't have to go through a series of shuffling, because immediately gave me this number;

No. 4 is a review on Julius Caesar, posted by..

Listra, Half-Filled Attic


You are entitled to spend $10 for any book you have been craving for!


Yes, we still have another giveaway! Come back next week to find out! ;)
