* Congrats and Give-Away *

First of all, congratulations to everyone who's story or poem was accepted for the Storm Country anthology. That is the book the Missouri Writers Guild put together to donate money to the Joplin, Missouri school libraries.

Now for my contest give-away. As I mentioned in my previous post the only requirement is to leave a comment here! That's it. The one restriction is that only US bloggers can enter. (My apologies to my out-of-country friends!)

Below are the books:

Skipping Christmas: by John Grisham
(hardcover) Cute humorous Holiday book

The Lemon Jelly Cake: by Madeline Babcock Smith
Originally written in 1952. A very charming book!

A Morning Cup of Meditation: by John A. Bright-Fey
Awesome hardcover book for juggling life with meditation!
Also comes with a CD (hardcover)

All three books are in great shape and could even be given as gifts.

Just leave a comment here and I'll choose a winner by on Tuesday, September 13th. **If I receive more than 20 comments, by 20 different people... I know how some of your minds work! ☺I'll choose three winners, and each will receive one book. If I get less than 20 comments, then one person will receive all three books.**

Also, Welcome to my newest follower, Juliann of Daily Snapshot. I hope you'll stop by often and always enjoy what you read and see! Thank you!

  6. Count me in. I love books...I don't think it's possible to ever have too many.

    Hope all is well in your little corner of the world. Weather's starting to change here...low 40's at night...I am NOT a happy camper, but am trying to deal with it.

    Have a great day,

  7. Yay, a giveaway! Thanks, Becky, this is fun and all the books look great. Love the quote too! :)

  8. Verna Simms, a 90-year old member of the Writers' Society of Jefferson County also has a story in the Joplin book.

    Have a good one darling! And thanks for visiting!

    Ciao Bella!


  12. You're reminding me how long it's been since I did a contest and that has me thinking...which can sometimes be a scary thing!


  13. Not entering as I live outside the States, but I didn't know Grisham writes humor. I learn something new every day.

  14. I'm in! Just to have the chance for one book makes me happy! I agree with Carol. That quote is awesome.
