Bloggy Giveaway - Cuddle Up With A Good Book

Bloggy Giveaways Quarterly Carnival Button

One of my favorite things to do this time of year is curl up on the couch or in my bed with a soft, warm blanket, a good book, and a hot cup of coffee. So I decided for my first time participating in the Bloggy Giveaway Carnival to giveaway a few of my favorite things.

My giveaway includes:
  • A navy blue Ralph Lauren herringbone weave cotton blanket. This blanket is twin-sized so it's extra big for curling up on the couch, or perfect sized for sharing.
  • The book Sweet September by Tricia Goyer. I love this book! (You can read my review of it here.)
  • A $10 gift card to Caribou Coffee.
To enter the giveaway just leave me a comment. Be sure to include your email address so that I can contact you if you win. If you'd like, I'd also love to hear what your favorite book is. Share about this giveaway on your blog for a second entry. I'll select one winner on November 2, 2008.

Visit the Bloggy Giveaway site to find lots more giveaways to enter this week.

ETA: This giveaway is open only to those in the continental United States.

Oh, I'm on a huge reading binge right now! A prize like this would be perfect. :) Thank you for the giveaway!

I have quite a few favorite books, but the newest addition to my list is also the one I'm giving away for the Bloggy Carnival: Book of a Thousand Days by Shannon Hale. Feel free to visit my blog and read my review of it in the Bloggy Carnival post!

What a snuggly giveaway. Great idea! My favorite book is called Tigana, by Guy Gavriel Kay. Also, my first two kids are named Alex and Olivia too. :)

Great giveaway - count me in. I just love this time of year too for curling up, getting cozy, and staying indoors with a good read.

A Grammatical Disclaimer

I freely admit to consistently using improper grammar in the following areas:
1. I like run-on sentences.
2. I have a tendency to end sentences with a pronoun. (I really do. I can't help it.)
3. I always seem to use passive voice in my sentences. (See?)

I've been trying to break this habit, unsuccessfully, for years, so now I just accept that as my writing style, and since I'm not writing for grades anymore, I embrace it. (Again, see?)

Hence, I invoke Blogger Artistic License for this blog!
