      Besides the facts that this is a giveaway, I'm really glad to be introduced to this oxford collection that I didn't know existed until I received an email about this giveaway. I have not heard of many of these titles and I'll probably add them to my collection when the time allows. Great suggestions though. Keep up the good work.

      What a sorry bunch of grovelling and ingratiating comments. Do people expect to earn a win because of their circumstance or wish fantasy? The fact that one enters should be sufficient cause to demonstrate that the particular prize is valued. But isn't selection of a winner random and not linked to any plea or plaint? I want to win, because as a child, "I 'ad to lick road". Bah !
