I confess....I did it. And I did it til my body was tired. I made my goal of reading two books this week. One is "A Tree Grows in Brooklyn" by Betty Smith and the other is "God Ain't Blind" by Mary Monroe. Reviews will be up by next week. Sometime this week, likely Monday, I will chose new books to read. I will be choosing a indie published novel, along with something classic or written atleast before I was born. No, I will not be disclosing that date :-) A girl has got to keep some of her bookaholic confessions to herself.
Another quick confession, I have tons of books I have never finished reading. *gasp* I will be exploring that topic next week, so in the meantime think of some reasons why you didn't finish reading a particular book.
My last confession for today, I have in the past, bought the same book twice before reading the first copy I purchased. Awww c'mon, I know you have done it. Walked into a bookstore, saw the book on the shelf and said, "this looks like a great book, I think I'll buy it." Then you take it home, it collects dust on the bookshelf. Then you visit the bookstore again and low and behold, "there's a book I think I'd enjoy. I think I'll buy it." You get home and darn it, you already have it. It looks so appealing because you didn't read the first one yet. So because, I don't have the memory of an elephant to keep remembering what I've bought, I'm going to give away some of the extra copies of books I have on my bookshelf.
The following books will be given away to the person that makes the most comments during the week on my blog. You can post on different topics or the same topics. The only catch is, it can't be mundane or spam type comments. And atleast one sentence. The giveaway will end Sunday, April 17, 2011 at midnight.
The top commenter will get to choose one book from the following list:
"The Five People You Meet in Heaven" by Mitch Albom
"Any Way the Wind Blows" by E. Lynn Harris
"Ya Ya's in Bloom" by Rebecca Wells
"I Know This Much is True" by Wally Lamb
"Saving Fish from Drowning" by Amy Tan
"The Secret Life of Bees" by Sue Monk Kidd
"Fortune's Rocks" by Anita Shreve
"The Last Time They Met" by Anita Shreve
