The holiday season may be drawing to an end, but Jøtul UK would like to extend that festive feeling into the New Year with an exciting competition for its customers: the chance to win a copy of either Norwegian Wood or The Norwegian Wood Activity Book signed by author Lars Mytting.


Norwegian Wood: Chopping, Stacking and Drying Wood the Scandinavian Way transports readers into a dense Norwegian forest and allows even the feeblest of readers to imagine themselves as axe-wielding experts ready to take on the great Norwegian outdoors with self-sufficiency, what Mytting himself describes as the ‘very basic dream of human survival.’ Despite the slightly fantastical and romantic elements to the book, it also has practical tips on preparing your woodstore, advice on which axe/chainsaw to buy, and an in-depth consideration of the qualities of different wood types, chopping techniques and further information on stoves and fire-burning. The perfect accessory for any Jøtul stove onwer.

Although the majority of us may identify ourselves with what the author himself recognizes as ‘armchair wood choppers’, the success of this niche and practical book demonstrates our firm interest in the lumberjack lifestyle; Norwegian Wood was voted a best-seller and remained on that list for more than a year after its 2011 publication.

The Norwegian Wood Activity Book has a similarly magical appeal, suitable for adults and children alike Mytting created this interactive book following the extraordinary international success of Norwegian Wood. The piece includes a myriad of fun tasks, puzzles and games including dot-to-dot, mazes, cut out and colour woodchoppers’ clothing, spot the difference and step-by-step guides to laying the perfect fire and building round stack. It really does offer something for all of the family to enjoy.


So, how do you enter the competition to win your perfect fireside companion you ask? Jøtul simply ask that you upload and tag them (@JøtulUK) in an image of your Jøtul stove on either Instagram, Twitter or Facebook.
