BAFAB – my turn to give away a book

As I have been the grateful recipient of a previous BAFAB (Buy A Friend A Book) giveaway on Clare Dudman’s blog Keeper of the Snails, I figured it was high time to donate one myself in the cause of good will and fellowship with all men (and women) and encourage the pursuit of literary delights to the masses.

Click here to read about the idea behind it.


Up on offer is Rose Tremain’s fabulous historical novel Restoration. It’s an oldy but a goody and it is one of my all time favorite books. It has just been re-released in a handsome, new, eco friendly (the paper is recycled) paperback edition, so if you would like to own this book, answer a few simple questions and submit your answers below in the comments. I will then throw the entrants’ names in a hat and draw a winner. Do not assume that the person who has answered the questions before you is correct.

Questions:

1. When and where was Rose Tremain born?
2. How many novels has she written?
3. Which literary prize was she awarded in 1999?
4. Which book was the winner on that occasion?

As I’m a day or two late in posting my BAFAB offering, you have until October 12th to submit your answers.

I will post the winner’s name on Saturday 13 October 2007.

Excellent idea, Anne! I've actually got this book in my ever-tottering TBR pile - sounds like it should be brought closer to the top.
