It’s official: today, September 29th, 2011, is the one year birthday of the Ink Slinger blog. And you know what? Soli Deo Gloria.
I enjoy writing. I enjoy reading. I enjoy sharing about what I write and what I read. This blog has been a superb outlet for that. 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). That includes writing. So I guess you could say my mission is to bring every ink blot captive to the obedience of Christ. And that, I think, is a pretty awesome assignment – certainly cooler than anything James Bond ever got to do.
But there’s more…
In honor of the fact that I have been able to survive (and thrive) in the blogosphere for one whole year, I’m gonna do what every blogger does: I’m gonna host a giveaway. Sure, I won’t get any points for originality, but hey, it’s a tried and true method for celebrating something special, right? So sit back, relax, and listen up.
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; do that, and your name will automatically be entered for the drawing. Simple, right?
Featured in this giveaway are two of the best books I’ve read so far this year, one fiction and one non-fiction: Markus Zusak’s The Book Thief and Kenneth Meyer’s All God’s Children and Blue Suede Shoes. The winner of the giveaway will receive a copy of both of these books. (Shipping to U.S. addresses only)
The giveaway will end at 12:00 P.M. (Mountain Time) of Thursday, October 6th. Then the winner will be announced.
Losers will be rounded up and shot. Just kidding.
