October 16, 2012
Get a chance to win a copy of On the Shoulders of Hobbits, the new book by Dr. Louis Markos (sorry, U.S. & Canadian residents only). This book actually discusses both Tolkien AND C.S. Lewis (the subtitle is The Road to Virtue with Tolkien and Lewis) by also discussing the Narnia stories.
All you have to do to enter is simply leave a comment below about who your favorite character (or characters) are from either series of books. Deadline to enter is Thursday, October 18th at 6 p.m. Eastern.
Five random individuals from those who enter will be the winners! You will be notified by email, so leave an address you check frequently (it will be from lewisminute (at) gmail.com).
