My problem is this. (Well, the one I'm addressing right now.) Anyway, my problem is that I often buy books at second hand stores . . . even if I already own them. I'll see a great deal, and I just know how wonderful the book is, and I just cannot let it go. So I buy it.
It has occurred to me that my problem could benefit others. What if I just went ahead and continued to snatch up those books, and what if I was to create an occasional giveaway, right here on my little ol' blog? Isn't that a fun idea? Then I could imagine all those delightful books in their delightful new homes.
So let's begin today! I have no idea how often I'll host a giveaway, and I've never done one before, so I'm totally making this up as I go. As I'm making it up, I've decided that I'll keep the giveaway open for a week. (That might be long? I don't know.) Anyone who would like to enter their name in a drawing to receive this free book can leave a comment below. You may also leave a comment on facebook, under the blog post. (One entry per person.)
Today's book is absolutely charming. It's called Our Animal Friends at Maple Hill Farm by Alice and Martin Provensen. (If you follow the link to Amazon, you can take a peek inside the book.) Well written, humorous, with whimsical illustrations, this is one of our favorites. It's geared toward ages 3 to 8. The copy I'm giving away is hardback, published in 1974 (as far as I can tell), and is in good used condition (no odors, tears, writing).
I'd love for this book to find a place in your home! If you would too, just leave me a comment and, in your comment, tell me who you'd like to read this book with. I especially loved reading this one with my Avery Kate. We had many laughs together!
(One more request: I'm realizing I should limit this giveaway to mailing addresses within the United States. Thank you for understanding!)
I'll leave the giveaway open until next Friday, at which point I'll announce a winner! I hope you all have a lovely weekend, and thanks for joining me!
