I love books!! I love to read!! I love to collect books!! This picture shows my current holiday reading stash that is out where I can pull from it.....but there is more to the stash....still tucked away with all the holiday goodies!! Pictured here are only books for adult reading, and we won't even start to talk about my collection of children's books!! I saw a new one yesterday, too, and think it might need to go on the list for the 5 year old granddaughter. It was a story that introduced and taught about words like patience, anticipation, dedication, etc. The author used these character traits and weaved them into a story about baking cookies!! CUTE!!
Last year I began to pass on some of my holiday books that I had read, realizing that hanging on to many of these is not necessary, since I probably won't read them again. This year I thought I would give one or more away here on my blog!! Click on the pic, and you can see the titles and authors a bit better, I hope!! Here are the rules!!

Rule 1.....Post a comment here on my blog, telling me which of these books you would like to read!! Your name will go into the Santa hat once!! You can list as many books as you like, and if you are the lucky winner, I will choose the one from your list to send!!

Rule 2.....Post on YOUR blog about this give-away, with a link to MY blog, and your name will go into the Santa hat a second time!!

Rule 3.....I will draw the winner on Monday, December 15th, and then get the book in the mail to the lucky reader right away!! This will give me time to finish reading the new ones in my stash, and will still give you, the winner, time to read before the end of the holidays and 2009 is upon us!! Please make a note to check my blog on December 15th to see if you might be the winner!! I will need your mailing address!!

Thanks for stopping by, have fun with the give-away, and happy holidays to all!!

I just saw where the title was A Connecticut Christmas instead of Christmas in Connecticut (I think that's a movie..must have been in my head).
