Book Giveaway

I'm a big believer in reusing things and passing them along once I'm done with them. I also love to support and encourage my friends to read. I know I've got several book worms who read my blog, so as a celebration of my blog-iversary I'm passing them on. If you want a book- just leave a comment before anybody else claims it.

1- The Kite Runner (my review)

2- Three Cups of Tea (my review) GONE
3- Not on our Watch (my review) GONE
4- Like Water for Elephants (my review) GONE
5- The Faith Club: A Muslim, A Christian & A Jew, 3 Women Search For Understanding (Amazon review)
6- Smart Couples Finish Rich (my review) GONE
7- Eat, Pray, Love (my review) GONE
8- Infidel (my review) GONE
9- 3:16 The Numbers of Hope by Max Lucado (my review)

See a book you'd like to read?

My blogging review usually included a link to Amazon to read more about each book. First person to leave a comment requesting a book can claim it. I will cover the shipping charges and hopefully get them in the mail this week. One book per reader/commenter, you must email me with your mailing address to receive the book.

Also, in a special contest to thank all readers and especially those who leave comments, I'm giving away a $25 Amazon e-gift card. Even if you don't want a book, leave a comment and tell me who you are and how you found my blog. I'll have a random number generator tell me which lucky commenter wins the prize. You can have a book and the gift card, so share some comment love!
Thanks again for stopping by!
ETA: Thanks for all the comments! I've been able to get an email address for everybody so far from your Blogger profile. I'll be sending you an email once you claim a book.

GOOD NEWS OF THE DAY: More pictures of this stinker tonight & I'm meeting a friend from High school for dinner.

"Like Water for Elephants" sounds like an interesting book---would love a copy if it is still available. Thanks!

I would like to have "Smart Couples Finish Rich". I could really use that one in my life, if you still have it.

Thanks for offering these!

Amanda said...

Thanks for the giveaway!! Your review on Three Cups of Tea was great! If it's available I'd like to read that one :)

Christy said...

I don't want a book, but just wanted to say Thank You for blogging! I find your blog one of the most entertaining. Thank you for keeping me entertained. ((HUGS))

Darn - I was going to ask for Smart Couples Finish Rich! That's what I get for checking in late!!

This is a great thing you are doing, Amanda!! Thanks for being such an awesome blogger!!!

I'd love the Three Cups book, but I see I'm too late for that ... Can I have Infidel please?

BTW, I'm here b/c Life and Times of a New New Yorker posted about your giveaway - yeah!

Heather J. said...

(Sorry for the 2nd comment, but I can't find your email so I can give you my address ... can you drop by my blog and email me? Thanks.)

Bree said...

I would love Not on Our Watch. I just read about this over at Maw Book Blog. And hear about your contest at Life and Times of a "New" New Yorker.

Bree said...

P.S. I've searched your blog but can not find an email address??? By the way, great pictures.

Amanda...what a great idea! I really just wanted to make sure that you know about While it's not nearly as fun as a blog give-away, it definitely is a great place to trade books!

Stephanie said...

I've been wanting to buy Infidel since your review. It would be great if I could get yours. This is an awesome idea!!

Purpletoes said...

I've been a regular reader since you started blogging...I was a Knottie. We seem to have a lot in common...I like travel, photography, and took up running in the past few years. I don't want a book or even the gift card but wanted to say that one of my best friends recently found out that her husband is being relocated to Houston. I told her to check out your blog for pictures and random reviews of things in Houston. Even though I'm sad that she's moving, your blog has made me excited to visit Houston.

Vanessa said...

hey Amanada - I check your blog on a daily basis! Feel like I "know" you - from your knotting days to now your blog!! I would love to have the copy of Eat Pray Love if it's still available. I don't think I have your email though!! You're awesome!

Shana said...

Is The Kite Runner still available? If so, I'd love it.


Shana said...

Amanda, I received my book yesterday. Thanks so much!!!
