Dog Days of Summer

Comments are now closed and my winner has been announced!

Shannon is doing something cool. She's hosting a bloggy giveaway carnival. I don't know about you, but I've won a handful of giveaways, either from participating in book challenges, or just signing up when someone is giving away something. It's really fun!

The giveaway that I am sponsoring will tell you a little something about me:
  • I'm a mom (Amanda is almost nine and Kyle just turned 3)
  • I try to eat and prepare healthy foods
  • I love to read and soak in information
  • I also love to read for escape and entertainment
I have been a part of several author tours here at my blog and received some review copies of books that way, but in the last couple of months, I've made sort of a job of it when Janice and Susan asked me to help start a books column at 5 Minutes for Mom (this "job" pays in books and writing experience). So, I am giving away one of the books below, which were just gently read by me before reviewing them. If you want to find out more about the book, click the link to go to the review.

I will ship to U.S. or Canada for this drawing. When I draw the winner, I'll ask which book you would like, and I'll send it along. Please be sure that there is a way for me to reach you (blog or email in your blogger profile or leave an email in your comment) and/or come back here Friday to see if you won!

* * * * * *



My regular column this week is the review of one of the best books I've read so far, Here for You: Creating a Mother-Daughter Bond that Lasts a Lifetime. Click the icon to find out more about the book and for a chance to win your own copy.
