Wednesday Giveaway 1

As the first giveaway I will start with something a lot of people have already read but may not have a copy of. If you haven't read it, I would recomend doing so since it is a classic.

I first read Richard III back in high school for Literary Critisism (UIL). Instantly I knew that Richard would become one of my favorite villans. And to this day I still have trouble seeing a bad guy without comparing him to this notorius hunchback.

While I feel the common need to hold onto this book simply because it is a Shakespeare, I know that the connection I have to it is slim at best. It was the copy I read for UIL, given to me by my coach, and was the first Shakespeare I ever owned. Now, however, I have a collected works that I have grown used to using. Plus I have other books from that same coach that I am holding onto forever.

So I feel the need to pass it on. If you have never read Richard III, please speak up and ask for this copy, as you are missing out on an amazing Shakespeare with arguably one of his best villians. And if you have read it and would just love to have a copy at hand to read again, this is a good small edition.
Of course it is in excellent condition as I have been the only owner and it had been packed away in storage for 5 years before our move here. The print is a good size, only 199 pages actually containing the text, and a very cool picture of Kevin Kline playing Richard on-stage in 1983 on the inside back cover.

Just let me know if you want it and I will get the mailing information from you.

"And thus I clothe my naked villainy
With odd old ends stol'n forth of Holy Writ,
And seem a saint when most I play the devil."
-Richard III (1.3.336-338)
