Book Giveaway!

The weather has finally turned warm and the sun is shining! I’m feeling the pull to the lawn swing in my back yard where I hope to spend many hours with a good book over the next few months.  The problem is that to make room for new books I have to get rid of some of my current books.  So, I have decided to have a giveaway!

I read Leaving Microsoft to Change the World while I away from home on a business trip.  John Wood and the Room to Read organization he founded is an inspiration.

Then She Found Me  by Elinor Lipman is the story of a birth-mother and the daughter she gave up for adoption thirty-six years ago.  Is there any doubt that I would have related to this one?!

I read The Blue Cotton Gown: A Midwife’s Memoir by Patricia Harman as part of a memoir challenge of reading four books in four months.  I couldn’t put this one down.

There are the books; here are the rules.  To be entered into the drawing, become a follower of My Own Velvet Room if you’re not already one, post a reference to my blog on your blog if you have one, and leave a comment here letting me know which book you would like if you are chosen.

That’s it!  I’ll draw for the winner on Tuesday!


I’m a writer, reader, and creative. I thought by now I’d have things figured out, but I keep coming up with more questions. I think that’s okay. I’m here most mornings pondering ordinary things and the thin places where faith intersects.
