Tons and Tons of Giveaways


You've never seen so much free stuff! You HAVE GOT to visit Shannon at Rocks In My Dryer. She is hosting the Dog Days of Summer Giveaway. She has links to OVER 460 websites that are having drawings for FREE STUFF! Yes, it will take you days and days to sort through it all, but sadly you only have till the end of the week, so hop to it! Have fun!

I am combining this giveaway with my PASS IT ON giveaway for the week - I will be giving away the following two books (they have been read by me, but are in good condition) in two drawings, good luck! Drawing will be August 2nd at 9am (I am going out of town until then!) See the post below to enter for a previous drawing that is still open - for Death of a Garage Sale Newbie!

To enter, go to the bottom of the comments section and click on "POST A COMMENT"

Drawing for:

1. Snitch by Rene Gutteridge - I enjoyed this book, but not as much as Rene's Boo series, which I checked out at the library. It was a fun read, here is the Amazon.com description:

Convinced he has a greater chance to die–of boredom–at his desk job than he ever faced in narcotics, Las Vegas police sergeant Ron Yeager agrees to slip off the retirement track long enough to head up an undercover task force designed to combat the recent surge in auto thefts.

Then he meets his inexperienced team of officers, most of whom seem completely incapable of infiltrating the seamy underbelly of Sin City. In particular, Mackenzie “Mack” Hazard’s determination to wear her faith like a badge threatens to send Yeager’s blood pressure skyrocketing. And then there’s maverick Jesse Lunden, who thinks he’s learned all he needs to know in his three years of undercover work.

As Yeager gambles his reputation on transforming this group of egos and eccentrics into a force to be reckoned with, he stumbles onto a much bigger scheme than anyone expected. This could be the showstopper of their careers–if his back doesn’t give out first.

This second book in the Occupational Hazards series blends wacky characters, sincere faith, and surprising plot twists into one hilariously addictive read.


2. Snow Flower and the Secret Fan by Lisa See - I read this book with my book club. It was different from what I usually choose for myself, but I really enjoyed it. It was an emotional book and taught me a lot about ancient Chinese culture. Amazon describe it this way:
Lily at 80 reflects on her life, beginning with her daughter days in 19th-century rural China. Foot-binding was practiced by all but the poorest families, and the graphic descriptions of it are not for the fainthearted. Yet women had nu shu, their own secret language. At the instigation of a matchmaker, Lily and Snow Flower, a girl from a larger town and supposedly from a well-connected, wealthy family, become laotong, bound together for life. Even after Lily learns that Snow Flower is not from a better family, even when Lily marries above her and Snow Flower beneath her, they remain close, exchanging nu shu written on a fan. When war comes, Lily is separated from her husband and children. She survives the winter helped by Snow Flower's husband, a lowly butcher, until she is reunited with her family. As the years pass, the women's relationship changes; Lily grows more powerful in her community, bitter, and harder, until at last she breaks her bond with Snow Flower. They are not reunited until Lily tries to make the dying Snow Flower's last days comfortable. Their friendship, and this tale, illustrates the most profound of human emotions: love and hate, self-absorption and devotion, pride and humility, to name just a few. Even though the women's culture and upbringing may be vastly different from readers' own, the life lessons are much the same, and they will be remembered long after the details of this fascinating story are forgotten

Good Luck, and don't be a stranger! I hope you'll come back often and read my thoughts and enter my giveaways!
