A good book and a cup of Twinings (Pinterest competition c/d 14 October 2012)

How many times have I read online how boring it is to enter competitions which only require numerous RTs on Twitter and Like & Share on FB.

Now you have a chance to join in a creative competition sponsored by Twinings.


You are probably aware that Twinings has introduced a range of Twinings Literary Tea Gifts which include book inspired mugs and notebooks and paired them with a box of Twinings tea. What a super gift for any book and tea lover!
 



I invite you to create a Pinterest board that would pair any Twinings tea with any book from the world literature. Just add the image(s) of your chosen Twinings tea and pictures/images from the book you might associate the tea with and the quote that you think might look good on the mug.


What you need to do:

1. Log in to Pinterest and create a new board called A good book and a cup of Twinings.

2. Pin or Re-Pin 7-10 images on your board. At least one of the images has to be your chosen tea from the Twinings range. Then add images (possible ideas for you to choose from): the book cover, the author, illustrations from the book, photos of the country described in the book or any images that you associate with the tea. Don't forget to find the right quote for your mug and add it to the description on one of the pins.


To give you an idea what it might look like, have a look at my own A good book and a cup of Twinings board.
I have chosen Russian Caravan tea and Tolstoy's War and Peace.
For me the first sip of a new tea is always as exciting and romantic as Natasha Rostova's first ball.




3. Add a link to your board in the comments below this blog post– along with your full name – before midnight on 14 October 2012.

I will choose the most creative and inspiring board and let Twinings know the name of the winner.

Terms and Conditions:
• This competition is open to UK residents aged 16 or over
• One entry per person
• Entries must be received by email before midnight on 14 October 2012
• The prize is one of Twinings Literary Gift sets (as chosen by the winner), to be delivered to a UK address
• The winner will be notified by 21 October 2012.
 
I hope you will enjoy creating your Pinterest board! Looking forward to your creations!

  2. Leta, there are lots of Russian novels to choose from, don't feel like you cannot pick the Russian Caravan. Or even War and Peace, as long as you do your selection of images and a quote.

  16. I hope you agree with me that an extremely well written modern book is as much "literature" as a classic, because I've chosen a book I feel is the best I've read for many years. Here is my board
