Giveaways

Last year I missed participating in the Bloggy Giveaways Carnival so I thought I'd give it a go this year. There's a lot of fun stuff being given away over there so go check it out!

Because I want to participate in the giving department (as well as hopefully the winning department!) I'll do a giveaway myself.

Because I'm all about reading, and love a good laugh, you can win a copy of P.G. Wodehouse's Bachelors Anonymous. (If you've never read Wodehouse I can't recommend him highly enough for a clean, good time. Everyone should read at least one Wodehouse in their lifetime. If you haven't, I'm here to help.)

Because I'm all about finding quiet time alone to read a good book, you can also win a $5 gift certificate to Starbucks so that you can enjoy the drink of your choice, while enjoying this quick and fun read.

You know the ropes! Leave a comment indicating you'd like to win. Must have a U.S. mailing address in order to win. Please also leave some information in your comment as to how I can contact you, should you be the winner!

Enjoy the carnival.

P.S. As per all the other contests and giveaways, this one also ends on Friday night, August 1st.

Yes books and coffee are a great prize! I am going to need some relaxing, quite time during our move.

We are moving cross country in 4 weeks, actually we are driving ourselves and our many pets 1500 miles while the movers handle our things.

We plan to stop at starbucks along the way and having a gift card would sure help out in paying for some liquid crack (aka starbucks)! We can't live without our coffee!
