Win Kids Books
Congrats to Karla Duff for winning Arlene on the Scene and Kris for winning Advice My Parents Gave Me. They were selected on the basis on giving a comment on which book they wanted and why they wanted it.
Can you believe it’s a new year already?!! A mom friend sent out a holiday card several years ago, and one sentence has always stuck with me which I attribute to her but it may be from someone else: When you parent small children, the days are long but the years are short!
Second Hand Saturday is a new weekly feature for me and this is my second time posting on it. As I mentioned in my first post, it was started by the blog Reading Teen as a weekly contest to clear out the bookshelves, and many other blogs jumped on board. I am late to this party, but happy to be attending. Thank you Reading Teen!
To win either book, please leave a comment. If you give a reason why you want this particular book, you’ll likely win it. I do love to get the right book to the right person! It’s a karma thing! If you win, I’ll email you to get your address and I’ll mail it right out!
I blogged on both books, so here are the links in case you want to know what each book is about.
Arlene on the Scene by Carol Liu with Marybeth Sidoti Caldarone
Arlene has CMT, Charcot-Marie-Tooth Syndrome which is a nerve disorder. This would be good for a middle grade (ages 8-12) child, especially one interested in those with special needs.
Advice My Parents Gave Me and Other Lessons I Learned from My Mistakes: A collection of 409 thoughts, quotes, lessons, ideas, suggestions, reminders, and words of advice and encouragement to help you lead a more prosperous, rewarding, peaceful, happy, and fulfilling life by Rodolfo Costa
Ok, maybe the book title alone is practically a book review. It’s a great gem of a book though. I am a little sad to see it go, but the bookshelves must be purged!
To win either book, please leave me a comment. If you state a convincing case of why you need the book, chances are you will be the winner. If you don’t win but want to check the book out at Amazon, just click on the image of the book.
