In which I give away a copy of Song of the Vikings

Over the last few weeks, the topic of Nancy Marie Brown’s Song of the Vikings has come up once or twice here on the Margins. (Okay, more than once or twice.)

Some of you may have broken down and bought a copy. For those of you who haven’t, I am pleased to announce that I have a copy to give away.

To throw your name in the middle-sized mixing bowl, just leave a comment here on the blog or send me an email and tell me:

1. Why you want to go to Iceland,*
2. What you liked best when you went to Iceland, OR
3. What fascinates you about the Vikings, or sagas

My Own True Love will draw a name on September 1. Not coincidentally, that’s the day Brown’s new book, Ivory Vikings, will be released. Vikings, chess, trade routes, luxury goods, and a tough broad or two. I can’t wait to read it.

* If you want to be contrary, I suppose you could also tell me why you have no interest on going to Iceland or speculate on why Iceland is currently a hot destination

    I’m so jealous that you got to see Iceland.

      It was pretty amazing.

    I’d love to go to Iceland to investigate its wool and textile culture – some of my friends have gone. They love it.

    Thank you for the giveaway!

      Wonderful wool and wonderful knitted goods. It was mighty tempting.
