Grand Opening Give Away Gala

It's been a month (OK - month and three days) of blogging, reading, learning and growing and, I think it's time to have a party!! So far, this blogging thing has been a blast and I can't even explain the rush I get when I see that I have another follower or comment. It's kind of like a little gift for me from you. (And I know there are a few unannounced guests from time to time - thanks for the e-mails and facebook messages!) So here's the deal: time for me to give a little gift back to you. (no, no, I insist) On April 30, I will be giving away a $20 gift certificate from Amazon to one lucky reader. You don't have to be a follower (but you are always welcome to click the little button), anyone can put their name in the hat (even those of you that live far, far away). One rule, though. (Just one - and it's easy) Leave a comment on this post with the title of your favorite book. If you like you can expand, it would be more interesting, but you don't have to. Just the name of your favorite book - and how to get hold of you if you win. That's it! Easy Peasy. On party day (April 30 - in case you've forgotten) I will have a big cake - if you want to join me, you can get your own big cake and hang out here while we eat them. I'm sure cake has no calories when it's eaten as part of an e-party. Bring a friend! Everyone is welcome!


  1. Is there a "no members of the same household, and or family may enter this draw"? If there isn't, then consider this my entry.
    "The Book Thief" by Markus Zusak. Zusak's incredible use of imagery in this novel creates a moving and memorable literary masterpiece.

  2. Awesome - I am already a follower!

    Favorite book - that is incredibly hard to choose. But I think if I had to pick just one novel.....it's be The Twelve Days of Christmas by Regina Scott.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  9. One of my favourite books was one I read last
    year, it is Still Missing by Chevy Stevens.
    It is a definite 5 star and a real page turner with a surprising ending.

  10. I can't say that I have one favorite book.. but a favorite that I read last year is The Hunger Games.


  11. If I had to pick one book to have on a stranded island... aside from the Bible... either C.S. Lewis' Chronicles of Narnia or Pride & Prejudice.

  12. My favorite is still "A Suitable Boy" by Vikram Seth. Although "The Book Thief" is right up there.
    What I'm really hoping is that I haven't read my favorite book of all time yet! How wonderful to think that I still have that in my reading future!

  13. One for the Money by Janet Evanovich.
    This is my current favorite.
    A very hilarious comedy of a young woman simply trying to make her way in the world, and how she leaves her mark on EVERYBODY!


  14. Such a difficult question, my favorite book.

    I have enjoyed The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain

    and Travel's with Charley by John Steinbeck


  15. My favorite book is "The Bourne Identity" by Robert Ludlum. I read it many years before the movie (which didn't do it justice).


  16. Oh, man, picking a favorite book is quite hard for me. Uh, the last book I've read that has really stuck with me is WITHER by Lauren DeStefano. How's that? :)
