Me and Mr Woog. A Bookshop and a Giveaway.

Here at Woogsworld, we Woogs are big into books. We house thousands of them all over the place.  Where there is a space,  there are a little pile of sticky dust collectors.

Mr Woog is the biggest collector of us all.  In fact,  when I first met Mr Woog 19 years ago he was working in a bookshop.  So I guess you could say I am his Julia Roberts and he is my Hugh Grant. Minus the prostituting business.....

I am just a girl, standing in front of a boy, asking him to fetch me my goddamn book.

So since 19 years ago on that fatal day in the Richmond Bookstore,  Mr Woog and I have managed to amass thousands of titles.  Believe me we have something to suit all tastes. And we have plenty of different book storing systems.  Let me share a few with you.

At WoogsWorld, where there is a nook, there is a book!

Mr Woog is a traditionalist when it comes to books and when Sony sent me their new Ereader to try out,  Mr Woog was not impressed.  And so I went about setting it up,  happy that I did not have to share it. "You are right Mr Woog, this is total shit..." With holidays coming up,  it is a good thought that I did not have to surrender half my suitcase for reading materials.

So this morning as I sat down to write this post,  I could not find my new Reader. I called Mr Woog at work only to find he had taken it in and was in the middle of a purchasing frenzy. And he was categorising them in the reader as he went. And he could not talk because he was too busy with his new Reader.


The Good People of Sony are giving a new Sony Reader to a reader of this blog. To enter, tell me about your favourite book and why you love it! The winner will be judged on skill and creativity and will not be judged by me. I am shit at judging because I am partial to bribes. The Sony Folk will choose. Entries close on Thursday 1st December and the winner announced on Friday 2nd. Australian Residents only. One entry per person.

The icing on the cake? Your Reader will be pre-loaded with Nikki Gemmell's new book With My Body. This follow up to her bestselling The Bride Stripped Bare is a series on lessons on self discovery. I will be getting stuck into this one soon. I need all the help I can get.

Thanks to Sony for this most excellent giveaway. My colleague Eden has one happening as well so go enter there and you may win 2! And for more information on the Sony Reader click here.

So tell me..... What is your favourite book?
