Hello Monday morning. It was a gorgeous weekend here in San Antonio, so I hope yours was likewise. A few orders of business. First Up, the Great Monday Give. Just a reminder for all of you out there who don't know, on Mondays I give away books I've bought for song at thrift/junk/used book shops. It's my way of sharing the wealth with you guys. If you haven't been to a Goodwill lately, all these wonderful books and more are waiting for you. Get out there and upcycle people. Your children will thank you and the earth will thank you.
For your reading pleasure this morning, I am offering up this set of three pretty much brand spanking new paperbacks... three books that make up one of my son's favorite series, Three Tales of My Father's Dragon: My Father's Dragon, Elmer and the Dragon and The Dragons of Blueland. Now you all know when it comes to longer readers, Dahl is king around here, but Ruth Stiles Gannett's 1940s/50s trio of titles about a boy and his dragon would win in a read off at this house, no question about it. Her books are pure heaven, so even if you don't win these lovelies, make sure you get out there and find some copies for yourself.
To be entered to win, all you have to do is comment on this post between now and Sunday, October 25 at midnight. A winner will be selected via the highly-technical blind-scroll-and-point method and announced the following day.
Next up, we have the winner from the special-weekend edition-Where the Wild Things Are give. Ali wins the gently-lovely hard copy of Where the Wild Things Are! Congrats sister and e-mail me your info asap to webe(at)soon(dot)com.
Finally, the give from two weeks ago... The Giraffe and the Pelly and Me... goes to Staci... Again, e-mail me your info asap to webe(at)soon(dot)com and I'll get it off to you as soon as humanly possible.
That's all for now!
