The Hobbit is a very special book to me. It’s the first “grownup” book my mom read to me as a child. It might very well be the first book I really remember, it’s certainly the first I remember sitting to listen to even if it’s not the first story I have memory of. And now my boys are around the age I was when my mom read it to me.
So I am super excited to be hosting a giveaway to win a copy of the new film The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey that just came out on Blu-Ray and DVD!
J.R.R. Tolkien’s epic adventure follows the journey of Bilbo Baggins, who is swept into an amazing quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor from the fearsome dragon Smaug. Approached out of the blue by the wizard Gandalf the Grey, Bilbo finds himself joining a company of thirteen dwarves led by the legendary warrior, Thorin Oakenshield. Their journey will take them into the Wild; through treacherous lands swarming with Goblins and Orcs, deadly Wargs and Sorcerers.
From Academy Award®-winning filmmaker Peter Jackson comes “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey,” the first of a trilogy of films adapting the enduringly popular masterpiece The Hobbit, by J.R.R. Tolkien.
Now, this is where I should insert the very cool app but I still haven’t been able to figure out how to make it work (java script issues perhaps?) But you can follow this link to the super cool app to see all about it. There’s a quiz to see how Hobbit you are – I’m 79% Hobbit, I do love me some second breakfast.
Now, about that giveaway – I’ll be selecting one winner at random to receive the Blu-Ray combo pack of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. Want to win? Leave a comment! For an extra entry leave a comment with how Hobbit you are or what your favorite activity from the Hobbit Handbook is. Or explain to me what this new ultraviolet copy thing is. Or share this giveaway on Facebook. (Please leave a separate comment for each of your up to four entries.)
I’ll draw the winning name on Wednesday, April 3.
Open to residents of the U.S. and Canada and please no P.O. boxes. The combo pack includes the Blu-ray, DVD, and ultraviolet copy of the film (which is where that question come from. Maybe I just live under an untechnological rock.) This lovely giveaway is brought to you by Warner Bros. who are supplying both the app activities and the prize. I wish I could enter! 🙂
The lucky winner, thanks to random.org, is comment 19 – wendy rozema!
