:: giveaway ::

I'm finally feeling better, thank the good Lord! Stomach viruses might be more evil than mean ole Valdez. I'm working on a few Peace Like a River posts today (and/or tomorrow) for tomorrow, but in the meantime, how about a giveaway contest?

I love all kinds of novels, and an author I do enjoy is Jan Karon. She writes the most charming, lovely, comforting stories. I read the entire Mitford series, and when it ended, I was bummed. So, I was thrilled to hear about the Father Tim novels. I read Home to Holly Springs and I believe it is one of Karon's best books; maybe the best she's ever written.

It's a long story, but I have an extra hardback copy of Home to Holly Springs. Basically, instead of returning it to Amazon, I let it sit in our front hall closet since Christmas. I thought one of you might love to read this book. If so, please leave a comment here and I'll do a drawing on Saturday, 5/17. I'll throw in a few tea bags, too (I usually do). And a 1-free-month trial card from Netflix (unless you already belong). Actually, I have two extra Netflix trial cards, so I'll stick those + tea bags in the mail to the two runners-up, OK?

It's just my little way of thanking y'all for hanging in here, w/my weakened health and slow (but avid) reading & blogging. Good luck!

Ooooo, can I put my name in the drawing if I totally fizzled out of the book club discussion? I LOVE the Mitford books. I'm looking forward to reading this one!

Oh, and I keep meaning to rejoin the discussion. I'm just never at my computer when I have the book handy. I finished it, though. Sometime soon I'll get the two together and give you some more thoughts. Glad you are feeling a bit better.

Count me in. I have read it but would love to own it to read again and again. Jan Karon is one of my favorite authors! I have read her books over and over. I love Father Tim and "Miss Cynthia". My family is from North Carolina so it reminds me of my visits there too and the humor-delightful!

Thanks Jenni, sounds great. I'm glad you are feeling better. I keep hearing wonderful things about the Mitford series but I've never read them. Maybe this will give me a good introduction to Karon. And I love tea...and movies!!!

Pick me! Pick me! The Mitford series was pure mental salve during my morning sickness days with Mary. I'd love to have a copy of Karon's newest! :-)
