Welcome to week 2 of â€”> 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 Iâ€™d make it a weekly occurrence. For the next several weeks you can count on a â€˜Happy Book Day to You ~ the Seriesâ€™ giveaway every Tuesday.
Last week I offered you a book of substance, this week I offer you a book of escape, fun, easy reading.
The winner can choose *one* of the three books above. They are:
Mrs. Perfect (by Jane Porter)
When I saw this title I thought the book was about me. Bwahahaha! Seriously though, I bought one of Jane’s books last spring and then went out and bought everything she’s ever written including a harlequin romance (*gasp*). You can click on the authors (above) name to go to her blog OR you can click HERE to a short blurb about the book.
Marshmallows for Breakfast (by Dorothy Koomson)
I love British chick-lit and Dorothy Koomson didn’t disappoint. This is a book about hope, redemption and finding love in unexpected places. You can click on the authors (above) name to go to her blog OR you can click HERE to a short blurb about the book.
Second Chance (by Jane Green)
Again, I think I’ve read every book Jane has written, AND (IMO) it’s British chick-lit at it’s best! You can click on the authors name (above) to go to her blog OR you can click HERE to a short blurb about the book.
Some simple rules and things to remember:
1. This book is second hand. Iâ€™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, Iâ€™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 wonâ€™t track you down, if you wait to long â€¦ 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. Iâ€™ll pick a winner sometime on Thursday, February 5th, 2009.
5. Tell a friendâ€”> this isnâ€™t really a rule, but it would be really nice. wink
What is your favorite genre? If you win which book do you think you’ll pick? No worries it’s not written in stone, I will let you change your mind.

All of those books look good! I was drawn to the Marshmallows for Breakfast (because that’s what Butterfly wanted this morning) and it would be fun to read it! :)

They all sound like a great (read) time. I would go in the order of Second Chance and then Marshmellow then the Mrs.Perfect.
Anyhoo… even if at least I can have a reference for when I’m done with my current book. as always take care.

I agree with Lucy, they do all sound like great books. However, I would go in the order of Ms. Perfect, Marshmellow then Second Chance. Great stuff.
what a great idea! I just may have to do this. Although, most of my used books go back to the library where they have a sale every spring. The money goes to help the programs at the library. But it would be fun to mail some books off here and there (to all 4 of my readers, I’m sure they would ALL win!)
Plus, the title: Marshmallows for Breakfast is so totally great!

They all three sound good. Ms. Perfect and Marshmallows for Breakfast are the two I’d be torn between. I tend to enjoy British chick lit as well.
Madeline’s last blog post..Sick With A Capital S
Hmmm… I think Marshmallows for Breakfast. As for genre, I read a little bit of everything, really. I do like historical type stuff, but I also like modern and sci-fi… fantasy, you name it! My favourite author is John Steinbeck tho. I LOVE East of Eden.

They all sounds like very fun books to read. I especially like the blurb about second chance. Thanks for the chance. Books are a love of mine, also.
I love books! I love reading all kinds of books so if I were to win, I’d tell you to surprise me and then I’d pace the floor until the mailman came with a package and start reading the second I got the book out and opened.
You mean I have to pick just one? All sound good, I like reading a good book.
That’s a good idea. I have a ton of books sitting on my shelf that I haven’t touched since I never have any time to read. I don’t want any of the books, I’m just commenting :)
jafer’s last blog post..How Stupid am I?
Love the idea and love to read as well. However it goes in spurts…I’ll read non stop for a month and then put the book away for maybe 6 months.
Not sure if that’s normal ?
Great blog btw
Oh, i am afraid i forgot when i read the book last time, but i am sure i would read Mrs. Perfect, and if the content is close to life and not a kind of those fairy tales( you know what i mean) there could be a good lesson for all of us.

What a great idea to do this regularly. I love fiction set in different countries and cultures best (Kite Runner, etc) but I enjoy almost anything. The Marshmallow one has the best title ever and I DO judge a book by its cover.
I want one of the books! If you’re reading them…I’m sure they are good.
Grog’s last blog post..Personal Finance
I would choose Second Chance. It seems symbolic since my husband that I divorced seven years ago and I are back together with our three girls, so we are a family on a second chance.
Nina’s last blog post..Steelers, Phil, and my baby’s goin’ to college
Hi, I think I would pick either Marshmallows for Breakfast or Mrs. Perfect, but any would do. I love romance novels, and just got into the paranormal genre after reading Twilight. I also love historical fiction.
thanks for sharing

Quick drive by… Still alive & kicking..just kickin’ slower than usual.. winter buggies makin’ us all sick with all kinds of crud.
i would like to read Second Chance
i don’t have any favorite genre
i read everything :)
anastasia’s last blog post..Ipod Giveaway
Well, not sure which book I’d like to read. I haven’t read any of them or the authors. I think it is great to recycle the books. Why throw them away or let them collect dust.
I want one of them books! They sound like a fun read. I loved the bit about the Second Chance as well!

I love light/fluffy reads! I just finished the shopaholic series – I listened to it in the car while driving to Vancouver.
if you haven’t picked the winner yet, maybe I could win :)
Noreen’s last blog post..Surprise Picnic
I would love to have them all! They all sounds a bit of interesting stuff just based on the title. However, Second Chance would be my first choice.
