Pay it Forward

Well, it took a little bit of doing, but I finally convinced Noah to pick only *one* winner each time LOL Congratulations to:

Paige over at Superpaige's Pad who won "The Testament"!

And Lace's mom Carol who won "The Honk & Holler Opening Soon"!

Overwhelmed over at Overwhelmed with Joy came up with a great idea - a Pay it Forward book exchange! The idea is to take a gently used book and host a giveaway to pass it on. In return the winner agrees to pass the book on when they're done and the chain keeps going! I love this idea! What a great way to encourage reading, as well as a great sense of community!

This month Overwhelmed with Joy is giving away "The Road" by Cormac McCarthy. Check out her blog to enter!

I also entered to win "The Elevator" by Angela Hunt over at Shaunarumbling.

PLUS I decided to host my own giveaway!

I have tons of books and I've read them millions of times - okay maybe hundreds :) and I think it's time to pass them on to someone else.

This month I'm giving away two books:

"The Testament" by John Grisham


"The Honk and Holler Opening Soon" by Billie Letts

Both are great books, I think you'll enjoy them! So here's how to enter:

1) Leave a comment on this post. Leave your name and a way to contact you if you win. Also let me know which book (or both!) you'd like to win.

2) I'd really appreciate a link on your page...I'm trying to get people to visit my site and the more people that mention me on their blog.... :)

This giveaway is open to peeps in the U.S. ONLY because I have a limited amount of cash on me for sending a book (sorry!). And, of course, I'll be needing your mailing address if you win so keep that in mind!

Also, remember...if you win - PAY IT FORWARD!

I'll throw all your names in a hat and have my baby boy pick the winners on August 15.

Good luck!
