Former Riskies,  Giveaways,  History

Books Old and New For You. Also, Contest.

Old Books

Here is another great link I came across, about how medieval book collections were cataloged and indexed so they could be found on the shelves. It’s fascinating with loads of great pictures, too. I love the picture of the books chained in the shelves. Get your geek on and click on over.

New Books

I have decided to have a Risky contest in which the winner will receive 1 book from each Risky  — supplied by me. I can try to accommodate international but the expense might end up being prohibitive. I may need to send an alternate prize to a winner outside the US because shipping is crazy expensive even with Book Depository.

To enter, read the rules carefully then leave a comment to this post by Midnight Eastern on December 7, 2014.

Rules

Void where prohibited. Must be 18 to enter. No purchase necessary. International OK, but see the above. Family or employees of the Riskies can’t enter. (Sorry minions, but you’ll get your coal shortly so what’s your problem?) Your comment must be submitted by 11:59:59 PM Eastern on December 7, 2014. Winner selected at random from among the qualified entrants. One entry per person, please. Winner will be notified by email. An alternate winner will be selected if the winner does not reply within 5 calendar days. For digital books, the winner must be able to accept a digital gift from a vendor that allows gifting of books.

2. You are Lord Hawkington and you have noticed Miss Smythe has …..a French clockwork pistol serving as a hair ornament. Given her reputation, it must be loaded. Who is to be the unlucky victim?

You are Lord Hawkington and you have noticed Miss Smythe in deep conversation with one of the antique tapestries. As a connoisseur of the amusing and peculiar, you draw nearer. You realize that she is not speaking to the tapestry, but to someone behind it. She catches your eye and quickly pastes a polite expression on her face, but you can see that she would much rather you go away.

1. At a Regency Ball, Lord Hawkington is trying to avoid his former mistress, and his former lover, and a countess with whom he had a brief affair. Where is the nearest exit?

2. You are Lord Hawkington and you have noticed Miss Smythe is standing in front of the French windows into the gardens through which you hope to make your escape. She really is quite lovely. Wait. That’s how you got into this mess!

You are Lord Hawkington and you have noticed Miss Smythe has dropped her handbag, its contents scattering across the floor in a jumble. As she attempts to rapidly scoop the items back within the brocade confines, you cannot help but notice the slender silver stiletto that she reaches for first…
