A Sale of Two Cities: The End

Tags:

We announced the start of this year’s #readeverywhere photo contest with the opening paragraph of A Tale of Two Cities, somewhat butchered; so to crown the winners, we’d better subject its closing paragraph to the same miserable treatment:

It is a far, far better thing that you did, @CoraLinglingXu, our Aesop grand prize winner …

… than @lauraalfers and @rosiewoof86 have ever done (although you are our Aesop runners up, so well done) …

… it is a far, far better best of the rest (our other runners up – @Kittykat370, @LM_Gibbs, @joannasymes and @nljohnson4 – who get a swag bag, lucky things) …

… than we have ever known.

Thanks for your entries, everyone, and see you next year.
