Look at this wonderful package of goodies I just opened from @GondorGirl ‘s #GiGiBookbox giveaway! As you can see, Froedrick was all about those mice! He took off with one right after I snapped the photo! I love the bookmarks, so cute! The pen made me laugh because I‘ve been meaning to read Bridge of Clay, it‘s on my kindle. The soap smells great (Sietje was hoping it would be for her!) And somehow the bag didn‘t make it into the photo... 😊

Soubhiville It‘s the perfect Bookish gift bag though! Thank you so much @GondorGirl , I loved your giveaway and had fun creating my entry collage! 9mo
GondorGirl I'm glad you like it! And I'm especially glad Frodrick is enjoying the mice... it was difficult to keep my cats from running off with them while I was packing everything up! 9mo
LauraJ Froedrick, you gorgeous beast! This time autocorrect changed his name to “From dick.” 9mo

As much as I would love to say Hogwarts or the Shire, I'm gunna go with Wakanda. Not technically from a book but from the world of comic books. I've never read any of the comics but I hope to read them all one day after seeing the movie 10 times and counting, I love the idea of living in such a progressive, afro-futuristic society! I feel like I would be right at home 😌✊🏾 Thanks @GondorGirl for such a creative #giveaway #gigibookbox

GondorGirl Comic locations totally count! And I highly recommend reading the Black Panther comics... there's so much more to that world then the movie even hints at! Sooooo good! 9mo

You have a few hours left to enter the giveaway! I'll be drawing winners around 4 PM EST.

It's only fair that I answer my own question. I think it's obvious that I'd choose Middle-earth, but what might surprise you is that while my name references Gondor, I'd actually rather spend my time in the Shire. Gardening, good food, friends, and a drama free life... 😍


ravenlee Only drama-free when Bilbo isn‘t around! 9mo
madamereadsalot1 Obviously, we need to move to NZ and start a wanna-be hobbit commune. 😂 9mo
GondorGirl @madamereadsalot1 I am totally game for that! 9mo
madamereadsalot1 I'll start researching how to become a NZ citizen, and packing. Lol! 9mo

The Velvet Hours | Alyson Richman

#gigibookbox @GondorGirl
I'd want to be in late 19th century Paris, ala Alyson Richman's The Velvet Hours! Life was art, music, literature and architecture that still survives today.
Thank you for this lovely opportunity ❣️

GondorGirl Ooo! Good choice! 9mo

Harry Potter: fun book | J.K. Rowling
post image

What a great idea for a giveaway question @GondorGirl ! I will always love Hogwarts, Diagon Alley, and really ALL the unique locations that J.K. Rowling describes in her books. I don‘t know whether it is because they are so easy to imagine or if it‘s the fact that I read these books when I was younger so they have stuck with me over the years...but I truly love the imagery created by her words! ❤️ #GiGiBookBox

GondorGirl I love all the wizarding locations that are tucked away in our world! 9mo

Game of Thrones | George R R Martin
post image

Thank you @GondorGirl for hosting this giveaway! 😀

This is probably an odd answer, but I love the Game of Thrones world even though it is extremely brutal. I think George R.R. Martin did an excellent job world building.

I also like the Shire and Narnia though #GigiBookBox

GondorGirl Martin did a great job with good world building! And in sure there's some place that you could hide ay 9mo
GondorGirl ... hide away and have a happy ending. 9mo

What fun! Hope I‘m not too late...
Favorite location from a book is a small farm in a rural town in New England. I read the book decades ago and can no longer find it I believe the title was Greener Pastures. It‘s my favorite because this is my ideal life.

@GondorGirl #Gigibookbox

GondorGirl I love that you chose a location that actually exists! I love New England, so I understand your choice completely! 9mo
