Until, then, there are still more exciting things lurking in this post. It's Mother's Day! I'm not one, but I have one, so I'll be spending today celebrating her and my grandmother as well. One of the things I'm the most grateful for about my mom is that she's a big reader, too! We enable each other's book habits by pointing out the sales on BookOutlet.com and traveling to all the area library book sales, where we usually get more books than we can carry.
In honor of all the mothers who read, I've got a great giveaway from Penguin/Viking for a few titles they think will be big hits with moms. I haven't read any of them yet (for shame!), but I'm excited to do so (as long as I don't have to hurt my back again to do it - LOL)!
I've got a copy of each of the following to give away (one winner for each book to increase your odds of winning!):
The Invention of Wings by Sue Monk Kidd - Freshly released in paperback, I know this novel based on the life of abolitionist and suffragist Sarah Grimke has been a favorite of a several of my blogging friends.
One Plus One by Jojo Moyes - A bunch of bloggers also loved this one, which is about a down on her luck mom taking her kids on an ill-fated road trip to the Math Olympiad, who finds an unlikely rescuer along the way.
Cut Me Loose by Leah Vincent - I haven't heard as much about, but it sounds interesting. It’s a memoir of a young woman’s self-destructive spiral after being cast out by her ultra-Orthodox Jewish family.
You can enter to win one of these books in the form below until next Sunday, May 17th at 8 PM EST. The publisher is doing the shipping, so I'm afraid the giveaway is U.S. only.
Is your mom a reader? If so, did you get her a great book this year?
