A confession, a favor and some motivation ...

Pay attention now, there is a giveaway at the end :-)

I have a wee bit of a confession to make. I love to read. There. I said it out loud and it's true. I have been known to curl up in a corner and read for hours, only surfacing for sustenance or because my children have finally penetrated whatever fantasy world I am in at the time. Unfortunately, I typically run out of things to read. I end up wandering aimlessly, looking at covers, hoping the story inside is worth ignoring my children.

Then I found A Musing Mother who shares my love of books. We've connected on goodreads.com and then I found out she has a book review blog called A Musing Reviews. Not only does she write the most amazing reviews but she gives away copies of books! Oh, sweet nirvana!

So far, I have loved all her reviews! With very few exceptions, I have added the books she's reviewed to my "to read" list.

Because the publishers who give her the books to review like lots of people to enter to win the books, she is looking to increase her followers.

So, I would like you, my loyal readers and friends, to head on over and follow her blog. And because I am not above bribery to sweeten the deal, I have a present for one lucky duck!



I have been reading "Life's Alphabet Soup" by Terri Ferran. Not only do I adore the cover*, I am thoroughly enjoying reading her stories. These twenty-six chapters all start with a witty, Dr. Seuss style poem that has me cracking up! And her stories! I find myself laughing and nodding my head. And the book itself is the perfect size to toss in your purse (to read in the waiting room or at the swim meet). (Sorry! I stink at reviews. Just take my word for it. It's great!!)

Do you want to win a copy? Here is what you need to do!

Become either a follower or subscriber to A Musing Reviews
Come back here and leave a comment - including your email.

Yes - it is that easy!!

The contest is open until June 10th. On June 11th, I will have random.Dave (my husband) pick a number out of my new gardening hat and will notify the winner! And there will be much rejoicing!!

Feel free to tweet, blog or shout from the hilltops about this giveaway. It will earn you my undying love and devotion!!

Disclosure: I have not been compensated in any way for either directing you to A Musing Reviews or for my review of "Life's Alphabet Soup". These are my very own thoughts and opinions.

*Book covers are very important to me. Far too often, I will not pick up a book if I don't like its cover. I can't help it!

I won one of her books, and I can't wait to read it this summer, while I'm bored out of my mind at work.

Oh and let me say I agree with the bokk cover thing! That's exactly why the Nook won my affection over the kindle! Have a great day!

okay, so i followed and you can give the book to someone else. i just didn't want you to feel bad. Not being the raffle family I know i will not win. I did however spend a very long time in Borders on Sunday buying sale books for the summer. First book to read is the Nora Roberts hard cover I picked up for 5 dolla!

I am a follower! Of you.

Will you please just email me your address so I can unload a few of my books?

I had to buy another little bookcase today but I still don't have room.
