Book giveaway no. 1

I've never done a book giveaway here so I figured it was about time. Of course, the fact that I have a stack of duplicate books helped me decide. How did I get a stack of duplicates?  Well.....There is this store near us called Ollie's.  Maybe you have one near you. If you do and are a reader, you HAVE to go there!  So, whenever I go there I always look through their tons of books and usually find a few that I know I haven't read before.  That doesn't mean they weren't already sitting on my shelves at home though. The same with Dollar General.  Ours doesn't have a large selection but they usually have one of two . That's how I ended up with 3 copies of one title.  I see popcorn a great price and go nuts!  Now you, dear readers, can profit from my nuttiness.  I plan to do a series of giveaways in the next few months.  Each giveaway will include at least two books of the same genre (fancy word).

For this giveaway I'm asking you to go to my Etsy shop then come back here and tell me what item in my shop you like the best.  Also, in the body of this blog post there are two words that obviously don't belong in the text. (My shameless attempt to get you to read this) You need to tell me what  the words are.  I also need some way to contact you so leave me your email (you (at) email (dot) com ) or similar. I'll use that random generator thingy to pick a winner.

So to recap, to win the books, do 2 things:
1- Tell me what item in my Etsy shop you like most
2- Tell me what 2 words don't belong

That's all there is to it!!  I'll bet you're wondering quack what books you'll win, aren't you? Here they are:
drum roll please.................................

The winner will get ALL of these historical Christian romances:
Sophie's Dilemma by Lauraine Snelling (Hardcover)
The Lightkeeper's Daughter by Colleen Coble
Bees in the Butterfly Garden by Maureen Lang
These books are all new. Bees in the Butterfly Garden was provided to me by Tyndale House Publishing.
This giveaway starts Sept. 17, 2012 and ends Sept. 30, 2012.  I'll pick the winner Oct. 1, 2012. Open to US mailing addresses only.
Feel free to tell your friends and their friends and their friends, etc. to enter. Hope you win!!! 
(P,S, I'm hiding all the comments just to keep it honest!)


  1. hello mary! i like your yellow and orange coffee cup cozy!!
    2 words that popped out to me were:

    :) thanks for the giveaway!!

  2. Popcorn and quack don't belong I don't think.

    I love the pink, pearls and crystal earrings the best!

  3. Cool lookin' books!! Found your two words - quack and popcorn! HA!
    love you mom! :)

  4. Hi~~I visited your little Etsy shop and loved your jewlery. My favorite are the crystal drop chandlier earrings. Very pretty.
    Now, as far as the words that do not belong~~I feel you are a trickster~~I believe "Quack" and "popcorn " do not belong. But, I am not sure. I think that you see books at a great price you go nuts ~~and for quack~~that could have just been eliminated. I hope I am right:-)
    Thanks for having this giveaway.


Dear friends, I love to hear from you! Please leave me a comment. But remember, keep it clean and if you could post in English so I can read it, I'd appreciate it!
