Happy Valentine's Day - 1

Valentine's Day is upon us and I confess that it's not a day I think all mushy gushy romantic thoughts about. Sure, it's a fun day to use as an excuse to do something special for the one's that you love (hence this post) but I've never been so emotionally wrapped up in it that I "lived and died" over the issue of whether or not I had a special valentine of my own.

In fact, one of my favorite memories about the day (when I was a single person) was swapping gifts with my "friendly valentine" who was also single. We picked out or made cards for one another and sent each other surprise packages to be enjoyed. And enjoyed they were! I totally loved doing that as it caused me to "think outside the box."

Now I'd like to take that concept and give away a box to one of you.....a box full of books. Specifically, I have one Complete Anne of Green Gables Boxed Set to giveaway! So if you have never read or do not own the series for yourself and would like to, well then by all means leave a comment below! The set is gently used and in great condition and I would love to pass it on to someone around these parts. (Perhaps then you'll be motivated to join in next year's Lucy Maud Montgomery Reading Challenge, eh?) Manipulative? Nah!



To win? Leave a comment below. If you are a regular subscriber, you may leave TWO comments and consider this gift a thank you for your friendship and following!

Contest open to U.S. Residents only and will remain open through Thursday, February 18th.

In the meantime, stay tuned because I have a few other gifts to bestow upon you this Valentine's Day weekend!

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!!!

THIS CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED!

While I surely don't comment as much as I'd like to, I have been subscribed for a long time. :)

I seldom comment but I do subscribe to you through bloglines and always enjoy your take on classics. I've been collecting Anne books but I don't have the complete set and they are mismatched...this would be awesome.

Me said...

We have Anne of Green Gables on Audiobook (unabridged) and my daughters love both it and the movie with Megan Follows. My husband blames much of the melodrama in our home on my girls being exposed to Anne too young.

Ooooh! I deeply regret that I sold my set of Anne books in a garage sale - what was I thinking?!?!? I would love, love, love to win this and return it to a proper place on my shelves.

Carrie, I don't usually enter giveaways b/c I get so many review books, but I have never read any Anne books, so I have to put my name in the hat!

Stephanie's Mommy Brain said...

Wow! This set is on my future list for Ellie. :)

I don't go crazy about VDay either. My hubby is pretty good about gifts and such. Gifts are one of his secondary love languages. Sadly for him, it's NOT one of mine.

Stephanie's Mommy Brain said...

Here's my second comment. My hubby informed me tonight that he found the perfect movie for my VDay gift. Unfortunately all the reviews say the DVD version is terrible but the Blue Ray version is great. (I have no idea what the movie is.) So he's considering giving me the movie and a Blue Ray player for V Day. Right... I think my gift to him is covered in that. :)
