Time for a giveaway

dog days giveaway

EDITED TO ADD: Due to shipping costs, I will need to limit this to visitors from US and Canada. And please leave me some way to contact you! There are a few people who have left comments that have not left a blog address or an email, so I have no way to contact you if you've won.

I've been meaning to have this giveaway for a while now (even before the move), but Shannon at Rocks in My Dryer has given me the push I needed to finally "git 'r done." Anyone who has read my blog for any amount of time knows that I love to read. I have a selection of books in very good condition that I will ship to the winners of this giveaway. Just let me know which books you are interested in by number or name (or say ALL of 'em!). I will draw names Friday and try to post the winners before we head out to the homeschool conference in Modesto, so to be considered, you'll need to post your comment before 6am Pacific Time. 1 book per winner, unless there aren't enough entries.

1. The Ultimate Gift, by Jim Stovall (hardback). The basis for the movie of the same name, it's about a young man who must endure some interesting challenges and situations to claim his inheritance. I wrote about the movie here.

2. Learning to Breathe Again, by Tammy Trent (paperback). This is Tammy's story of her life after losing her husband in a diving accident. Very moving!

3. Too Good to Be True, by Trish Perry (paperback). I won this book in one of Camy Tang's giveaways a few weeks ago. It's an light and easy read, perfect for a day at the beach or the park with the kids.

4. Freefall, by Kristen Heitzmann (paperback). From the back of the book: "When a young woman stumbles out of the Hanalei Mountains on the island of Kauai with no memory of who she is, Monica Pierce knows she's been brought there by God. Her brother, Cameron, reluctantly agrees to investigate the mysterious circumstances surrounding the stranger's arrival. He suspects her injuries were no accident, but he's far from convinced she's an innocent victim. And there's that nagging feeling he's seen her somewhere before. . . ."

5. God's Little Devotional Book for Parents (hardback). Pretty self-explanatory, I think!

6. Straight Up, by Lisa Samson (paperback). This was a free copy sent to me by Lisa to review. It was the first one of her books I'd read and I wasn't as taken in by it as most people. Since then, I've read several more of her books that I enjoyed much more. I'm sure one of you will love it.

7. In This Mountain, by Jan Karon (hardback). Book 7 in the Mitford Years series.

8. Norah's Ark, by Judy Baer (paperback). Loved this book by the author of The Whitney Chronicles.

9. The Covenant, by Beverly Lewis (paperback). This is book 1 in the Abram's Daughters series. Great read!

10. The Red Tent, by Anita Diamant (paperback). Very interesting telling of the story of Jacob's daughter, Dinah.

11. 100 Greatest Songs in Christian Music, (paperback). A look at some of the most popular songs in Christian music from the last 25 years or so. Subtitled, The Stories Behind the Music that Changed Our Lives Forever.

12. Tales from Dust River Gulch, by Tim Davis (paperback). For the kids. Cute stories with a wild west flair.

When I start organizing my bookshelves again, I will probably have a kids' book giveaway, so check back in!
