We love comments – but not just so we can prove record numbers of blog readers! We enjoy the feedback, getting to know our readers, and keeping this conversation from being too one-sided. Our dialog with our readers goes along with the goal for this blog – that is, for it to be a productive, encouraging destination where we share and receive ideas, inspiration, and laughter.
In keeping with that goal, Olivia and I have chosen a theme for the blog for the month of October – Book Month! And you’re going to help us. Leave a comment on this post listing three of your favorite books, preferably ones we may not have heard of or read yet (good luck!:)). (We are looking for titles to add to our ‘Want to Read” list, and ones to add to yours, so, though we ALL love “Little Woman”, please refrain from listing the obvious.) We will review and compile the book list and prepare to share an awesome list of recommended books throughout the month of October!
And that’s not all. Finally we are going to make good on our promise of the blog’s first official give away. Each and every person who comments on this post with their three recommended books will have their name dropped into the proverbial hat. The Deadline for the Contest is next Monday, the 8th. Then, on the 15th of this month, we will have our drawing and that person will receive …*Trumpet Fanfare* a BOOK! (imagine that!) – one of our favorites, and one you (hopefully) haven’t read. JUST MAKE SURE WHEN YOU COMMENT THAT YOU USE YOUR BLOGGER IDENTITY OR LEAVE AN EMAIL ADDRESS SO WE CAN CONTACT YOU IF YOU’RE THE WINNER!!! Comment moderation has been enabled for this week so we can protect your privacy and keep the list of books under wraps until the 15th.
We are so excited about Book month, and have been gearing up by reading books to recommend and writing reviews that will knock your socks off. Our first review will be published tomorrow by Olivia, and we hope to have one each weekday for the rest of the month. So, on your marks, get set – GO! Join with us and share some of YOUR favorites!
