Tolstoy Therapy Birthday Giveaway: Which Book Has Shaped Who You Are Today?

Two years ago (only two years?), I started up Tolstoy Therapy as a summer project after finishing my first year of university. It was a way of keeping myself busy and adding another layer to my reading, but it’s become the most worthwhile experience.

221 posts later, I’ve met the most wonderful readers and bloggers, and I’ve been introduced to so many books that are now favourites. For this, alongside many other reasons, I thank you!

As means of a small thank you gesture, I’m giving away a £15 email gift certificate to spend on Amazon books. I wish I could think up something more imaginative, but I think this will be the easiest way to treat a fellow booklover!

Simply comment below with the book that has most shaped who you are today (a difficult choice, I know!), and a week today – on Sunday 15th June – I’ll randomly select one person to receive it.

I’ll contact the winner by email (if I know it), or as a reply to your comment. Therefore, you don’t need to leave any personal details, but perhaps check the comments in a week’s time!

Once again, I’m so grateful to all my readers. I’m looking forward to hearing which books are chosen by you all!
