  1. This set looks absolutely gorgeous 😍 I hope I get lucky because I don’t own these books (I read them at the library). Thanks for another amazing giveaway. I’m @bookishspell at instagram. 😊

  2. Hi Anna. My name on instagram is eirepmabjj. We’ve messaged so you’ll find me easily if I’m lucky enough to win! Happy Sunday.

  3. Hi, Anna! My IG is @gabrielen13
    I’m really excited, I’ve always wanted those books, they’re really beautiful, and I don’t have Professor Tolkien’s books (although he’s my favorite writer 🙁 …), so I’m very excited about winning them, thank you so much for the opportunity. <3

  4. Hello, Anna! Love supporting fellow members of the #tolkientribe!! 💚 Also, would LOVE to win the books! 📚 Insta: @verochantele

  5. I absolutely love how these books look like! If I win, people will get tired of me posting about them😂😂😂 by the way, I’m laura_fc14 and I already suscribed hahahh

  6. Yey, I’ve finally discovered your blog Anna, and…wow! It’s full of interesting articles that I have to read immediately! Love it sooo much! ♥ I’m Debora, from the Instagram account @emporiodiniere. I’m looking forward to see your next posts! Have a nice day 🙂 (and fingers crossed for the giveaway!)

  7. Hi :3 I’m Ángela and my Instagram account is @xnienna. I’m in love with Tolkien’s books since I read it and this is awesome😊
    Thank you for hosting this giveaway!💙🌿
    By the way, I’ve just discovered your blog and I’m loving it so much. Its so interesting and amazing♡

      1. Hey Anna, I’m actually having an error trying to subscribe to Cask & Quill on here. It will say I’m subcribed, but then 5 seconds later it pops up an error: Sorry, there was a problem following”. Has anyone else told you this?

        1. I haven’t heard that, no! Sorry to hear it! It shows you as a follower via wordpress, but not email, so at least I have you on my end. Not sure what’s up with that?!

      1. Hey Anna. I reached out to support, this is what they said just so you know-
        “It looks like she has a self-hosted site but uses the Jetpack plugin to allow you to subscribe from That there’s a different site name in the error is interesting!
        Are you following by adding your email or clicking the blue follow button on her site at Clicking that blue follow button worked on my end.

        The button from the feed you gave did not. Her recent posts aren’t updating there either, and it looks like they’re from her old site. I suggest having her reconnect Jetpack to try to get that working again.”

        So it appears your WordPress link through Jetpack won’t allow users to ‘Follow’ you, just FYI if this helps in anyway.

        1. Can I ask where you’re accessing my site from? Many people follow via WordPress without issue, so I’m just wondering what “the feed you gave” mentioned from support is so I can try to locate the problem.

        2. I’m not sure why WordPress reader only shows my older posts from my old site. If you’d like to follow via WordPress, visit my site and press the blue WP follow button in the sidebar. That should work for you, but trying to follow from WP reader will not for whatever reason. Thanks!

          1. Yes I tried following via WordPress itself. It does only show the older posts. I was able to subscribe just now through your website, I never noticed (just under the email subscribe link) the follow option, but it worked now that way!
            WordPress replied & said you would need to update it on your end in order for new posts to show, something about Jetpack?

          2. I tried that earlier and no luck! I looked into it and found many people have this issue when they change site domains and it seems to be something on WP’s end that apparently they can do nothing about. The advice was to direct people to follow directly via the website. Sorry again for your inconvenience and thanks for bearing with me thru this! At least now I’ll know if it comes up again. 🙂
