I bought three books to gift as giveaways for Christmas, but then I decided to do it after the big day, during the recovery, the decompression. Nothing will get you started on the right foot in 2012 like a good book, right?
Dr. Ribi, who I mentioned in my post, Duck or Duct tape?, introduced me to …
… How Green Was My Valley way-back-when. It is one of the most beautifully written books I’ve ever read. I should know. I’ve read it several times. It’s that good.
To join in, sign up, participate in this giveaway, all you have to do is tell me what your favorite book is and WHY? Don’t forget to tell me why, because this is your chance to sell my 500 daily journal readers on YOUR choice. (Ah, Web stats—it’s like throwing a huge party without having to mop the floor afterward. You get the same good feeling but without all the work.) A huge thanks to all of you who show up for a visit every day. I’m a latecomer to blogging but I love, love, love it—the discipline, the sharing, the way it organizes my thoughts, the daily conversation with “friends” outside my world. Prior to blogging, I’d authored a weekly syndicated newspaper column for three years, but I like this new daily gig even better. Thanks for agreeing to bear witness to my life. I am honored. My mother journaled every day of her life (she was also a newspaper columnist at the tender age of 15, each column delivered by Model T to Salt Lake City.) I’m discovering again, in yet another new way, how close this apple fell.
Winners will be selected from a hat by my grandgirl, StellaJane. She’ll announce the three winners in two weeks. We’ll send it to you promptly along with … a little surprise.
