Synonyms and antonyms; apparently the same thing.

For the next couple of weeks, I'm going to be plugging the free draw we're running in conjunction with World Book Night 2012 on Julie's Gems. If you fancy winning a special edition copy of Good Omens by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman, then all you have to do is send us an email. That's it. Just an email saying you want the book, leaving only your name. I will only ask you for a postal address should you be lucky enough to win one of the books.
Don't forget there is also a second book (also special edition), just to sweeten the pot. One of the five copies of Good Omens will also be accompanied by a copy of Audrey Niffenegger's The Time Traveler's Wife.
And, as if that weren't good enough, then every book I'll be sending out will include a bookmark featuring the Gem below. That's right, Julie's Gems are finally beginning to hit the printer!

So what are you waiting for? Drop us a line, let us know how much you want the books (and the bookmarks, of course!) and we'll put your name into the draw.

Back to the Gem for today. I can't remember much about the origins for this one, but I can only guess that it must have come about thanks to one of my little fits of trying to be clever and using polysyllabic... er, big words...

Well, yes. I can't argue with that, I suppose...
If you want to review the free draw details, then feel free to read through the original post. There are some nice pics of the books too.
