Win Stuff | The Hobbit & The Lord of the Rings Box Set

Leave me a comment with your ideas for this blog. Now. Do it now.

You could be as happy as me if you win this set of books.

Here’s the deal. I’m giving away a box set of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien. It is the set that I bought right after the Fellowship of the Ring came out in theaters. I bought it to replace the well-worn copies that my dad had laying around. Well, I still have those well-worn copies. Also, my wife brought a really nice hardcover set into the marriage. As much as it pains me to say this, I don’t need three copies of the same series. So I’m giving this box set away.

If you’ve never read the whole series, now’s your chance. If you are quick about it, you can just finish them in time for the arrival of The Hobbit (part one) in the theaters this December.

So how can you win?

Simple. Just tell me what you’d like to see from this blog of mine. Share with me any questions that you have, any ideas for posts, any themes or categories that I’m lacking. Just leave a comment below and you’ll be entered to win. I’ll pull the winner next Monday, April 30th, and announce the results here on my blog.

The Fine Print: I’m not made of money, so although I love international comments, I can’t ship internationally. Sorry about that.

  1. Are you too young to remember Doogie Howser MD.? For me to follow a blog I need to have something more than a funny little story. My favorite blog right now is leadership freak. Leadership training in 300 words or less. Because of my past friendship with you I may tune I’m from time to time, however if there is something more for me to glean… A life lesson that I should remember, a refreshing look at God, maybe a new way to think about an age old problem that affects us all. That’s what I come back for. It needs to beg for my 1:30 minutes of read time, maybe a bit longer if the connnection slow! Love ya Man! You should come on a short vacation and visit.

  2. Sorry sick wife and crazy house distracted me from finishing my thought Doogie Howser always finished his show with a thought about what he had learned. Even if you learned something that I may have learned 10 years prior, there is refreshment and perspective to read it and focus on it again.

    Blog away, I’ll be watching!

    • Great comments Tim! I do indeed remember Doogie Howser, M.D. Have you seen Neil Patrick Harris in the most recent doctor role (Dr. Horrible’s Sing-a-Long Blog)? It’s worth the time.

      Maybe as a feature of the blog I could shoot a little video of me typing out a thoughtul wrap-up every so often and record a voiceover of me reading it over some cheesy 80’s synth music. Actually, that’d be pretty fun. If I do that, I’ll message you specifically to make sure that you see it.

      If nothing else, check back Monday to see if you won the set of books!

  3. Josh. I have to disagree. I don’t need a new box set of LOFR thanks to my inlaws this past Christmas, but your hilarity and voice is the reason I come here. Perhaps this is the difference between non-fiction and fiction. Wel,l then how about a post on voice or what makes people like a certain author over another?

  4. I’d like to see you try your hand at historical crazy fiction with minimal research. Say, write 1000 words about a murder in ancient Troy sometime during the Trojan War, or about the “great caravan robbery” of some desert caravan crossing the Silk Road post Alexander the Great, or a coming-of-age tale set in the Khmer… Go crazy.
