As of September 29th, 2012, the Ink Slinger blog has been alive and kicking for two years. I’m two days late acknowledging that, but I figure it’s okay – everybody forgets their birthday once in awhile.
I’ve said so before and I’ll say so again: I love to write. And this blog has been a superb outlet for that. As Augustine puts it, “I am the sort of man who writes because he has made progress, and who makes progress by writing.” I am also a Christian, redeemed by grace, and as such, I am commanded “to do all to the glory of God” (1 Cor. 10:31). Writing is no exception.
To those of you who have given me the time of day, listened to what I have to say – thank you. If there is anything of value in my writing, to God be the glory. I think you know who to blame for the screw-ups.
So in honor of two years of blogospheric ink slinging, I’m hosting a giveaway. Giveaways are, after all, a tried and true method of celebration. Everybody likes a giveaway.
Like last year, the rules are simple: to participate in the giveaway, all you have to do is leave a comment on this post, sharing the title of the best book you’ve read so far this year. Saavy? Do that, and your name will automatically be entered for the drawing.
Featured in this year’s giveaway is the best book I’ve read so far this year: The Wages of Spin by Carl Trueman. You can read my review here. The winner will receive one copy of this book. And since it will be shipped from the Book Depository, you can enter even if you don’t have a U.S. address.
The giveaway will end at 12:00 P.M. (Mountain Time) on Monday, October 8th. The lucky – or rather, providential – winner will then be announced.
I’m still concocting a sick and twisted punishment for the losers.
