Let’s Celebrate and Win an All-new Kindle Paperwhite

To share my excitement for 2019 with my readers I’m giving away an All-new Kindle Paperwhite which released just a few months ago. The newest version is thinner and lighter for the ultimate portability, it’s waterproof so you can take it to the beach or read in the bath and it has 8GB storage. Before I started reading ebooks I was always concerned about battery life and the inconvenience of having to charge devices, but the battery life lasts weeks!

The Kindle Paperwhite connects to the internet with wifi, but also comes with Bluetooth so can be paired with speakers or headphones for listening to music and audiobooks. The kindle has made massive leaps in terms of technology, with in built lights and a responsive touch screen making it comparable to bigger budget tablets, whilst features like being waterproof give it a new edge on the market.

Check out the full features of the Amazon Kindle Paperwhite – and you can also buy your own if you’re not lucky enough to win this competition, with prices starting from £129.99

The competition will close on 30th January at 23:59 GMT. 1 winner will be randomly selected by Gleam and I will email you to confirm delivery address the next day. To enter, leave a comment telling me your favourite book, with extra entries for social media actions. Following me on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook will get you information about my new posts – including some really exciting competitions coming this year.

    Swallows and Amazons by Arthur Ransome.
    Loved it as a child and loved it 3ven more wh3n I reread it as an adult.

  2. Chris says:

    l love historical fiction and my favourite is actually pre-historic . . . . Clan of the Cave Bear by Jean M Auel

  3. Nina says:

    I loved a book called The Elephant Whisperer by Lawrence Anthony. A wonderful spiritual book about the connection between animals and man

  4. Laura K says:

    My favourite book is Pride and Prejudice, I love the story and its the only book I’ve read more than once!

  5. Nicholas Dale says:

    A hard decision but I would have to go with of mice and men. Ever since reading it in school years ago, it captured me.

  6. Lisa Day says:

    My favourite book is The Christmas Rose by Dilly Court.I love all her books but that one is one of my favourites.

  7. Hanna says:

    Brave New World by Aldous Huxley comes to mind… Still there are many others I truly love. Like The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry or all books by Margaret Atwood.

  8. Claire says:

    My favourite book after reading it this Christmas is The Christmas Project by Maxine Morrey – An incredible novel. Lots of laughs and a really enjoyable read.

  9. Fahad Ibrahim says:

    Freakonomics. I loved this book, though I think the title is a bit misleading. It’s not really about economics. In fact, the author is showing you what interesting things you can discover when you apply statistical analysis to problems where you wouldn’t normally think of using it. I use statistical methods a fair amount in my own work, so I found it particularly interesting. Recommends it for: People Who Appreciate the Value of Social Science

  10. Gemma payne says:

    Dakota of the white flats by Phillip Ridley has been my favourite since I was 8 and I still love it now and the chris riddle illustrations I have a new copy so one day I can read it to my own kids.

  11. Mark Stevens says:

    Jumper by Steven Gould excellent read and also turns into a very good series of books. Brilliant escapism and some really edge of the seat writing.

  12. Darrell Perry says:

    I adore reading, so have many favourites. But would have to be Death on the Nile by Agatha Christie

  13. Wendy England says:

    Mine has to be Me before You! I wept like a baby several times. When I saw the film it didn’t elicit the same emotion unfortunately.

  14. Cherry Lloyd says:

    My favourite book is Lord of the Flies. It’s certainly not a cheery book but it’s stuck in my head for so many years now.

  15. Emma LW says:

    My favourite book is ‘Shantaram’ by Gregory David Roberts. It made me want to go to India about 500 times more than I already did. I ended up spending six months there, I loved it so much!

  16. Paula Phillips says:

    The Secret Garden, I’ve just watched the film on TV which inspired me to read the book again.

  17. Anthony Harrington says:

    impossible to pick just one favourite! The book that started off my love of reading was the Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe it was the first “proper” book that I read as a child and couldn’t wait to read the next chapter, I still have a soft spot for it.

  18. David Nicolson says:

    I love loads of books but my favourite at the moment is an old one – Death On The Nile by Agatha Christie

  19. Ro day says:

    A Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood. I had it on my bookshelf for ages and never got round to it…. I can’t believe it took me so long. I loved it.

  20. Megan Kinsey says:

    Circe by Madeleine Miller. It’s a feminist retelling of the Greek myth and so beautifully written. I highly recommend it!

  21. Laura Jeffs says:

    I have so many favourites! If I had to pick just one, it would probably be The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern

  22. Mary Lucking says:

    I do not have a favourite book. I am currently reading The Seven Sisters books by Lucinda Riley and they are very good

  23. Claire Eve says:

    The Elenium series by David Eddings (I can never part with my old and battered paperback copies of these). 🙂 And Mansfield Park by Jane Austen.

  24. Stacey Carnell says:

    It was a book i’ve had since I was a little girl called Vanilla Fudge, can’t remember the author

  25. Doreen Brady says:

    It’s tough to choose just one but the one that comes to the top of my head is The Secret History by Donna Tartt.

  26. Laura Wheatley says:

    such a difficult choice, I love crime books but I think I would still go back to my childhood Enid Blyton books as my faves, I loved the Magic Faraway tree

  27. Judith MacInnes says:

    Sooo hard to pick just one! I think The Blue Nowhere by Jeffery Deaver probably – I’ve read it so many times it’s like a comfort blanket now!

  28. Gilly Holmes says:

    I enjoy reading the Myrtle Clover books by Elizabeth Spann Craig, I only seem to read cosy mysteries these day, I don’t want to be harrowed.

  29. Michael Wilton says:

    Favourite book … now that is a really difficult one. I would have to boil it down to a favourite series rather than book as there are simply too many single books to list. The Eternal Champion series by Michael Moorcock would have to be my selection.

  30. Emma Walton says:

    As an avid book reader, I couldn’t possibly have just one favourite book! When I was a child, I loved to read Enid Blyton books and now that I’m all grown up I’m quite partial to paranormal romances from authors like Laurell K Hamilton, Gina Showalter and Sherilyn Kenyon.

  31. Carolyn Cox says:

    Hitch-hikers Guide to the Galaxy, read it first as a teenager and it still makes me laugh every time I read it.

  32. Joanne Flanagan says:

    Me Before You. First book I have read that made me cry. Felt like I was in mourning for days after!

  33. Susan Willshee says:

    I love any of the books in the J.D. Robb ‘in death’ series so I’d say my favourite is Naked in Death

  34. emma howard says:

    I have lots of favourites but the book that made the deepest impression on me as a teenager was To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee

  35. Rai says:

    No way I can narrow it down to just one book. But Steinbeck’s The grapes of wrath is an amazingly powerful, and relevant, book.

  36. Susan Clayton says:

    The Jigsaw Man by Paul Brittan. It got me started on a whole new career in mental health. Fascinating book.

  37. rox talbot says:

    so many favourite books but the one i can read time and time again is city girls series by patricia scanlan

  38. Joanne says:

    I recently read Varjak Paw with my class and I was blown away by the twist. It’s a children’s book but definitely worth a read.

  39. Patricia Avery says:

    The Book Thief – some great quotes but as I’m 71 when Death asks ‘ …….what colour will everything be at that moment when I come for you? What will the sky be saying?’ really sticks in my mind.

  40. Deborah Bird says:

    The Secrets of the Lighthouse by Santa Montefiore! Honestly, it is a fantastic book, i would recommend it to anyone!

  41. Jacqueline Roberts says:

    To kill a Mockingbird. I have retweeted and followed but the gleam is not accepting my entries.

  42. Mary Campbell says:

    Goodnight Mister Tom by Michelle Magorian, a triumph of human friendship against the backdrop of World War 2, and a truly uplifting read at that 🙂

  43. Danielle Graves says:

    My favourite changes depending on my mood! I love such a range of books but To Kill A Mockingbird is definitely one of my favourites!

  44. Wendy Tolhurst says:

    My favourite book is Wuthering Heights.

    I first read it for my English “O” Level and we had to read it over the summer holidays. I must have started the book several times and not managed to get any further. Finally, I went on holiday in our caravan with my parents. The first day I got through the first couple of chapters and I then was unable to put the book down until I finished the whole book

  45. ellie spider says:

    incredibly difficult choice as I love to read so can I choose a series of books? If so I choose DiscWorld by Terry Pratchett 😀

  46. jo liddement says:

    I really enjoyed The Clockmaker’s Daughter by Kate Morton, a Gothic mystery set in the Arts & Crafts period.

  47. Tina LD says:

    Don’t have a favourite book, it depends what I fancy reading at the time. At the moment Phillipa Gregory books are high on my reading list 🙂
