I'm delighted to be taking part in the "Justin Thyme" Bookmark Competition. My two bookmarks arrived yesterday, (along with three deliciously ripe bananas). If you'd like one (a bookmark, that is, not a banana ... they're all mine, mine, MINE), simply leave a comment answering this question: What kind of animal am I? (Hint: anyone who says I'm a monkey will be sent a bucket of sour grapes, rotten tomatoes and bitter lemons!)

Now, the real competition ... (you can win signed/doodled copies of "Justin Thyme" and "Thyme Running Out"). Here's how; it's quite simple, even for a human ...

It's like a sort of "Scavenger Hunt" where you collect clues at different book-blogs. The clues you need are the numbers and letters on the bookmarks (click the photo above to enlarge it, the numbers and letters are in the little clan badge). Once you've found them all (there are links to the participating blogs at the Tartan of Thyme Blog), you simply rearrange the letters in numerical order ... and the message you get is the answer to the competition. Email your answer to panamaoxridge (at) btinternet (dot) com.

The competition closes on September 7th, so you've got all week to find the letters/numbers and then decode the message. Have fun ... and if you get hungry, remember to eat a banana!


  1. Thanks for getting the competition post up in such excellent thyme! I hope all your readers enjoy hunting through the various book-blogs on their scavenger hunt!
    With best wishes,
