Akin to Anne (giveaway)

It wouldn't be right to get through a whole Birthday Week Giveaway and not involve Lucy Maud Montgomery. Not around these parts anyway!

As you know, each January I host the Lucy Maud Montgomery reading challenge. To take away the excuse of at least one of you to participate this coming January, I'm giving away three titles which I've picked up here and there around town. These are all gently used copies, all currently out-of-print but worth the reading time (in my humble estimation.) Which titles, you ask?





Just trying to disciple the reading nation, you realize. I use occasions like my birthday to practically GUILT you into it! I'm GIVING you the books! Now you simply MUST read them! (That's my logic anyway. And I'm using exclamation points in honor of the authoress, by the way!)

To win these three gently used books? Simply leave a comment below. Contest is open to U.S. Residents AND Canadians (because seriously? I couldn't exclude the Canadians on this one!) and will be open through Thursday, September 9th.

All my best to one reader out there,
Carrie

;)

THIS CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED
