Books and Books and More Books - Giveaway

Written August 11th - never posted - what can I say - running behind myself......

It is that time of year when I want to sit and read outdoors.  Hot August nights are upon us here and I just want to put my embroidery down and read, read, read.  A while back Kim and I went to a fantastic used book store.  Well, come to think of it, it was the day of her surgery and she wanted to get out of the house for a bit.  You know me, well "OK" and we were off.

There were rooms and rooms like this.
The reason I am going on about this is I was thinking of taking my "used" books there and then I got to thinking, hey, what about having a give away to my follower/blogette friends.  So, I am - having a giveaway!

All you have to do to enter is be a follower of mine and leave a comment on this post by midnight, Saturday, August 28th, (PST) telling me your favorite place to read AND your favourite thing to munch on while you are reading.  Please don't advertise my giveaway - it is just for my blogette friends.  If you have been a "peep" until now, become a follower and enter, why not, I would love to hear from you, and I know you are there peeping....  (I know because I used to be a "peep" too.)
There will be two drawings = two winners.  Let me know your choice if your name is drawn.

A Thread of Truth by Marie Bostwick
A Single Thread by Marie Bostwick

I thoroughly enjoyed each of these books, you will too.  I will post the winners on Sunday, August 29th.

Oh, I was wondering where you'd been! And here you are! My fav place to read is my rocking chair on the deck, sipping on ice tea and gingersnaps! A single thread sounds like a good choice to me! Thanks Gran!

I'm a follower :)

On the couch or in bed. I don't usually eat anything when I'm reading.

If I'm one of the winners, either book is fine with me. I haven't read either one.

thanks for the chance!

I've read these and have the third waiting for my attention. Just popped in to say hello friend!!

Had a wonderful time last night! But then again, I always have a great time in your class, you have a natural gift to teach! What book store did you two go to? Hugs!


paulette said...

You knotty lady!! I was wondering where you were hiding...?? Now I know...READING!! I love to read in bed or in a deck chair...the reclining kind...that's it!!
Take care!

quiltmom said...

Well I am a reading kind of girl Gran and I love the library. I have a favorite used book store in Belgravia that is called Belgravia books and treasures. I also find some at Goodwill and sometimes I even buy new at Chapters or from Amazon.
I have seen these two books but have not read either of them.
I love being one of your blog followers - you have been on my blog roll for awhile now.

Glad to know all is well with you.
Warmest regards,

I am so glad that you are back with us! I am definitely a follower of yours! I love to read, and actually have been reading quite a bit this summer--my favorite place is in my favorite chair in my quilt room--I love to munch on popcorn--any type! Thanks for the giveaway!

Denise :) said...

Oooh! Both these books have thimbles on the cover -- something I've been interested in collecting lately. It's a sign -- LOL! My favorite place to read is on my stomach, in my bed. And my favorite thing to munch while I read is sugar free popsicles (in the summer) and popcorn with M&M's all other times!

I notice these are by the same author -- are they part of a series? I'd want the first one, I think, if I won. If they're not part of a series, I'd like to be surprised! :)

I'm a follower! I love to read in by wing back chair but I also read every night in bed before lights out. I don't munch too much but a cup of coffee is my usual!

txag80 said...

Hi! My reading happens in my jungle of a backyard where my outdoor kitty, Lucy, begs for attention. Put me on the list if the book has racy bits (and I'm not talking NASCAR). ;)

Linda said...

Oh a great idea! I should do the same thing. Well, I've been a follower for a while now. And I love to read with my feet in the pool (it's HOT here - 110 today) and both books look so good. I would love to read either one.

Hey TXAG80 I just made that same joke to my sister (racy bits - NASCAR) earlier today. Great minds think alike!

Sinta Renee said...

Oh there you are! And a giveaway too! Please include me in-- I am just getting back to reading. I have a huge list of ones I want to tackle but I am starting with Wicked because I wanted to see the play (and hubs hasn't taken me yet) and also because my son has read all three in the series, twice. So that way I can talk with him about it. I don't munch & read. In fact nobody gets to eat until I finish a book!LOL Did I mention that I love the new look!?!

Sinta Renee said...

I was already a follower:)

Nancy said...

I like to read in bed...although soon I hope to have a nice screen porch and a comfy chair...

I haven't read either book so your choice...if I win.

Micki said...

Since my injuries occured, I am doing even more reading. My favorite spot of all is my leather lounge chair where I am covered also with a velvet,electri blanket which is oh so cozy. My next favorite and equally special is a oomfy seat in the garden where I sit near the bird feeder and can watch the birds when I want and hear their songs.

I am also a follower.

Ooooo what a wonderful give away... next to sewing, I love to read. In bed or on the sofa on my screened in porch. Eating well cheetos of course..but popcorn it right up there too.

who read the first in the M.Bostwick books but not the second and isn't there a third? I'm so behind.

pippirose said...

My favourite place to read is in bed.
All cozy, propped up by lots of pillows.
My favourite thing to munch while reading? Wish I could say "celery sticks" or some such healthy thing...but...it's really chocolate!

Victoria said...

oh, what a great idea! I just realized today how many gently used books I have bought recently, and have yet to read!!! I'm going to keep your book giveaway in mind, to do myself soon! Recently, I found the cutest little shelf, perfectly sized for thimbles, so I've been "on a kick" looking to collect them!! And A Thread of Truth really caught my eye!! But, I'd be happy with either one!!!
I love to read in my hammock or in bed-late at night, or at the beach... Usually no snacking while I'm reading...

Julie said...

Loved the story about the grandfather and his granddaughter!

My favorite place to read is in the backyard in a chair--especially in the morning with my coffee. At night I confess it is with a 7-up or a Smirnof Ice and potato sticks or squares of cheddar cheese with wheat thins. My secret obsession is out!


Mommarock said...

My favorite place to read is in a nice warm bubble bath! I can sit back and relax, lock the door and read for as long as I'd like.. the door is locked, so no one is going to bother me, well except for Ginger my dachshund who is sitting on the edge of the bathtub keeping me company.
