Bibliophilicwitch’s 3k Giveaway!

I’ve been running bibliophilicwitch (then witchfulthinking) for over two and a half years. I have gone from solely blogging pagan and witchcraft to admitting that this is a personal blog to being a personal spiritual book blog that reblogs pretty pictures of nature, occult, books, mori kei clothing, and fountain pens - and somehow this hodgepodge has attracted 3000 of you guys. Holy buckets! I can’t let such a momentous number be left to pass unnoticed, so here is a give away!

Rules 

  • must be following me as this is a thank you to my sweet followers
  • reblog/like as many times as you wish, but please don’t spam your followers
  • no give-away/contest blogs
  • open internationally
  • after the winner is selected they will receive a message in their ask box; your ask must be open in order to qualify and you must claim their prize within 48 hours.
  • open until August 21

The winner will receive a book that they can select from the list of my favorites listed above. When able, I will be giving away a hardcover, though there are a few that are out only available in certain formats. The book will be bought and shipped via Book Depository. While the give away is open internationally, please take a moment to check that your country is eligible for shipping through Book Depository because I would hate to find out at the last minute that I can’t actually get you the book. And yes, that is the collector’s edition of Fangirl as long as it is available when the time comes or the winner is willing to wait.

  1. The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss
  2. Dead Witch Walking by Kim Harrison
  3. Libriomancer by Jim C. Hines
  4. Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell

Ah! i knew i was forgetting something in my haste to finish this! (Quite the feat while working with my boss, let me tell you!)

If the winner wishes to receive a book other than the first of the series listed, they may request it. Ex. Already have The Name of the Wind, but would love Wise Man’s Fear? DONE!

This beautiful picture is what I imagine Freya’s falcon cloak might look like.

"My response to the “I am not a feminist” internet phenomenon….

First of all, it’s clear you don’t know what feminism is. But I’m not going to explain it to you. You can google it. To quote an old friend, “I’m not the feminist babysitter.”

But here is what I think you should know.

You’re insulting every woman who was forcibly restrained in a jail cell with a feeding tube down her throat for your right to vote, less than 100 years ago.

You’re degrading every woman who has accessed a rape crisis center, which wouldn’t exist without the feminist movement.

You’re undermining every woman who fought to make marital rape a crime (it was legal until 1993).

You’re spitting on the legacy of every woman who fought for women to be allowed to own property (1848). For the abolition of slavery and the rise of the labor union. For the right to divorce. For women to be allowed to have access to birth control (Comstock laws). For middle and upper class women to be allowed to work outside the home (poor women have always worked outside the home). To make domestic violence a crime in the US (It is very much legal in many parts of the world). To make workplace sexual harassment a crime.

In short, you know not what you speak of. You reap the rewards of these women’s sacrifices every day of your life. When you grin with your cutsey sign about how you’re not a feminist, you ignorantly spit on the sacred struggle of the past 200 years. You bite the hand that has fed you freedom, safety, and a voice.

In short, kiss my ass, you ignorant little jerks.”
