Hello Sounis! I'm a long time reader of the series and a long-time lurker here, and finally decided to create an LJ account to post. I first read The Thief when I was 14-15, rediscovered it (and discovered the existence of QoA/KoA) in college, read CoK a little while after it came out, and since then I've revisited the series every 1-2 years and lurked here sporadically for many years. I have really enjoyed the many discussions here over those years.

Anyway, the reason why I officially made an account + joined this community for reals is -
I was lucky enough to win one of the Thick as Thieves ARCs from the Goodreads giveaway. I've read it once and am now reading it a second time, but I would love to pass it on to someone else in this community when I'm done. I know there are plenty of people here who would appreciate it far more than anyone I know in real life, and I would love to give something back to a community that has really enhanced my reading experience of these books.

So! I'm going to do the same thing that [livejournal.com profile] bookaddict88 did last month and send my copy to one random member of the community. So, if you'd like the ARC, say so in the comments within the next week (i.e. by March 17). I'll pay for US shipping, but will ship internationally if you cover most of the cost (I'll contribute a few dollars towards international shipping as well). I think that's it!

Also, if there is a secret subgroup of people here who've read the new book and are discussing it, I would love to know where it is so I can join in.

Thanks everyone! You're awesome.


EDIT: So I just decided to go get lost in the desert this weekend (there are wildflowers!) and I probably won't get to doing the draw till Monday, so I'll take last-minute entries till Sunday the 19th.

I was looking for some quotes for a project I'm working on and came across this:

“Where there's life there's hope.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Hobbit

What do you all think? I've seen this line in other books but have never been able to come across where it originated.
