Off My Bookshelf (giveaway)

I have a few "doubles" on my bookshelf and so I thought I'd host a giveaway and pass along my spare copies to someone else to enjoy. I also thought I'd better do this soon, to make sure you receive these two books in time to enjoy them during the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday season!

I'm going to be really lazy today and if you want a detailed description of this book, click on the Amazon link and read their take on it. =) (I'll be less lazy later when I take these to the post office for you!)

I apparently picked up two copies of this book on two separate occasions and didn't realize it. I love the ". . . If you lived" series by Scholastic and snatch up titles whenever I run across them. I now have two copies of . . . If You Sailed on the Mayflower in 1620 but only need one so if you'd like to add this to your bookshelves, leave a comment below!

Secondly, I was sent two copies of the same A Pioneer Alphabet for review from Tundra Books. (They sent a hardback copy and a paperback copy so that I could see both.) I thought I'd pass along one of these to one of you, so if you'd like to win the paperback edition, leave a comment below.

I'll have a review of A Pioneer Alphabet coming up next week so you can keep an eye out for that. I assure you that I have nothing but nice things to say about it and I'm sure that you'll enjoy it.

Would you like to win these two books? Simply leave a comment below. This contest is open to U.S. Residents only and will be open through Thursday, October 28th.

THIS CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED. THE WINNER, as selected by, IS #10 - Alison! Congrats! =)

Happy Early Thanksgiving!

Mayflower is a wonderful book, but I've never heard of the Pioneer Alphabet. Would love that one!

We don't have any historical Thanksgiving books, but this year I definitely think we're ready for them. These would be a fabulous start.

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday! We have begun discussing the colonies and all that leads up to the first thanksgiving. These books would be perfect. (I also really apprecaited your baby book review, expecting a baby has me looking at books for little ones once again)

thanks for the giveaway!!!
