Time For A Giveaway!


I thought I would do a little giveaway for all the people out there that like to read. In fact, I am going to give away all of the books I read this year just to spread the love and keep my house a little less cluttered.
So, I just got finished (gently) reading "The Friday Night Knitting Club" by Kate Jacobs and I am going to send it to one of you out there in blogland. It is about a group of ladies with not much in common except the love of the craft. You do not have to know how to knit to enjoy this book...(I tried casting on once and it was a disaster) But, there is only one catch. If you win, you have to promise to give the book away on your blog when you finish reading it. I would really love to keep up with this book and see where in the world it goes.
Okay, so all you have to do is put a comment in the comment section and I will randomly draw a winner on Monday. Oh, and you also have to promise to give the book away on your blog when you finish reading it. Sound like fun? Okay, GO!

This is a really great idea! Play it forward... Add me to the list, I will pass it on. You should sign, date and note location inside the cover to with your web addy. Everyone that gets it do the same. That would be interseting to see where it gets to. Your so brilliant and thoughtful!!!

Before you send it to the winner you should write where it started so people can keep passing it on and they can see where it's been!

What a terrific idea! Count me in.
I agree with Estela, everyone who receives the book should write an entry in it - similiar to a travel log.

Angela said...

Maybe I will include a little Travel Log with it.

What a cool idea.... I read all the time too. I started a "used" library at my work just so we could all share the reading! I love the name of your blog. Have a great 2009!
