Last Giveaway of the Year

gribook: giveawayI talked about the best Christmas Presents for Bookworms in my last post.

It’s only fitting that I make such a gift to one of you. Of course, you have to prove that you’re a true bookworm first. Side note: I have no idea what a “true bookworm” would actually mean, but I had to say something, right?
