The Dabbler is delighted to bring you an exclusive competition. Slightly Foxed – producers of ‘The Real Reader’s Quarterly’ – are giving away a free annual subscription to one lucky dabbler.
This is a real treat for booklovers – each issue of the Slightly Foxed magazine is packed full of witty, beautifully-written and highly personal reviews of great books both old and new. The very first article from the very first issue has appeared on The Dabbler here.
