Book Giveaway! Pass It On!

I was going through my bookshelves, trying to de-clutter and found this fabulous book that I haven't "passed-on". Because books are too precious to only be read once - PASS IT ON! If you haven't read Snow Angel: A Novel (my review here) or Wind Dancer by Jamie Carie - you are missing out. They are both awesome books! I have my slightly used copy of Wind Dancer to give away. All you have to do is leave a comment with a way to contact you if your name is drawn. I'd also love to hear what you're reading now! I will draw a winner on March 6th. Good Luck! Oh, if you'd like to earn extra entries you can mention this and the drawing for Zoe Lucky: and the Green Gables' Mystery over at Teen Lit Review - I'll give you 5 extra entries for each of the links you post on your blog.

PS - I (wink, wink) could be persuaded to trade my copy of Wind Dancer for your copy of The Duchess and the Dragon - the one Jamie Carie book I haven't read! Leave me a comment-we'll talk! :)

Snow Days, Snow Days . . . and Make Up Days!

Well, my kids had to go to school on President's Day - what a shame! jk! Actually, I think school is a great place to be on President's Day - a great place to learn . . . about Presidents! The reason they were in school - was to make up a snow day we had in January. It was really the first snow that my 7 year old has seen that was deep enough to play in. Below are some photos of the family having fun on our snow day!

It grew, and grew, and grew and . . .

The Stimuls Bill - which in my last post was about 650 pages - is now around 1,100 pages. You can read the current version here.

I am afraid this may be the end of America as we know it. . . .
