Welcome to week 3 of —> Happy Book Day to You ~ the Series

Do you remember in December I held a Happy Book Day Giveaway on my birthday? Well I enjoyed it so much (because books are my favorite thing), I thought I’d make it a weekly occurrence. For the next several weeks you can count on a ‘Happy Book Day to You ~ the Series’ giveaway every Tuesday.

happy book day to you ~ the series (week 3)
larger than life by Adele Parks

More British chick lit (yes, I do read a lot of it, thank you very much). Here’s a little excerpt from the author’s site:

Georgina fell in love with Hugh the first moment she saw him. She was eighteen. She’s now thirty-two. In all that time she never loved another man. People are always bowled over with the concept of love at first sight and the idea of such constancy. Faces tend to fall when she mentions that at the time he was seeing a friend of hers, whom he subsequently married and had two children with.

(SiLLy WOMAN!! … the author’s site didn’t say that, I DID!)

Some simple rules and things to remember:

1. This book is second hand. I’ve read it, I liked it and I am giving it to you. It may possibly have coffee rings or warped pages from sitting on my night stand. Call me cheap, or call me environmentally friendly, I’m not bothered either way.

2. Consider passing it forward when you are done, you could even have a giveaway! Remember, what goes around comes around.

3. You must come back here to see if you are the winner. I won’t track you down, if you wait to long … I might lend it to a friend or a neighbor and then YOU are out of luck. You need to email me with your address, once I receive it I will pop it in the mail to you at my convenience.

4. To be eligible to win, you need to leave a comment on this post. I’ll pick a winner sometime on Thursday, February 12th, 2009.

5. Tell a friend—> this isn’t really a rule, but it would be really nice. wink

Good article. Thanks for the tips.

Me of course! Come on… I may have water soon, and I need a bathtub book. Or maybe I’ll just scootch over to your house borrow it, take a bath in your bathtub, and read the book.

Or is that weird? :P

That would be perfect reading for Spring Break! Sounds silly and charming and perfect fluff reading for pretending to sit on the beach. (I’ll actually be sitting in my house as my basement gets waterproofed.ugh)

Thanks for the fun book give aways!

I think books are an amazing gift and tell a lot about a person. Giving a book is a rare treat that should not be taken lightly. I think that when you give these books away, that you are really giving away a piece of you. If you and I knew each other in person, I am sure that we would be great friends.

I’m in – I love chick lit. I actually have some books that I wouldn’t mind doing this with – they are just hanging out in my garage. If you ever want to spread this out to other blogs or need books, let me know.

Tamara B. · February 11, 2009 at 11:52 am

Who cares if it has been used. I love reading great books and I know if you read it, it must be a great book. I’ll gladly take your hand me downs, thank-you.

Was it any good? Did you enjoy it? Maybe you did and that’s why you’re sharing it. But maybe you hated it and want it off your shelves! ;)

Whatever the reason, it looks good. Count me in!

Oh, I need a good read to escape for a few hours. My husband’s gone for a year, so it’s just me and the kids.
