Great Monday Give: Eloise

Happy February kids! Flying into this month I am a) starting a diet b) getting my ducks in line for the fall when my son blasts off to kindergarten c) flushing out my son's bookshelves to free up some space. On the last note, you know every time I do this a thousand doubles appear. Soooooo, we'll start the Great Monday Give this week with a gem I found. A nice crisp and kinda newish paperback copy of Eloise. It's great. A book that ruled my childhood. If you'd like to be entered to win, simply comment on this post before midnight, Sunday the 7th.... a winner will be randomly selected and announced the following day. Please keep in mind that I hunt no one down, so if you entered, check back to see if you won.

The winner of last week's give of the basically new copy of The Lorax is Artfullife. Congrats and cheers all around. Send me your info to webe(at)soon(dot)com, and we'll see what we can do about getting it to you sooner rather than later!

My niece loves the Eloise books, but we don't own any yet! I'd love to win it for my daughter.

Brooke said...

The illustrations are to die for! Also, this one brings out both my best little girl voice AND British nanny accent. Tho I still need a copy for my shelf.

Man that fever bug hit little boys hard from TX all the way to us in VA. Thankfully we had our winning copy of The Amazing Bone to get thru the weekend. Thanks for a great read.

Congrats to Artfulllife for the win!

What's your technique for "flushing" your son's bookshelves? Do you donate the books or put them somewhere else for safekeeping? Recently I just rearranged my bookshelves and found much more room for new books. No need to get rid of any!

Scribbler said...

Well, we have so many great books and so little space that we are in a constant state of flushing...

we get rid of books if we have doubles or if I suddenly realise we don't like a particular book anymore. some I sell, some I donate, some I give to friends....

usually depending on what condition they are in and what I paid in the first place for them. if they are in good condition and I paid a lot for them (a lot as in $2 to $20), I usually sell them. if they are in good condition and I didn't pay alot for them in the first place (as in 25 cents to $1), I usually put them in the great monday give pile. if they are in just ok condition, I usually donate them.

if they are in good condition but not vintage, I give them away to my son's school. if they are in good condition and I know someone who might like to have them, I give them away.

whew.... we have to have a system for everything.

Susana said...

I've never read this one, but I'm pretty sure I'd love it. Thank you!

Chantele said...

With respect to your reply above, whew, you do have a system for everything! Wouldn't it be lovely if it could somehow include all the spare books coming to me - vintage, non vintage, really tattered, just ok - anything as long as it is a book! That said, Eloise will be very welcome in our household :)

Momma T said...

Inspired by your blog and love of vintage children's books! Thanks for the time and thought put into this!

vigilceo said...

It's very cool that you do this! I've yet to read an Elouise book to my daughter (or to myself for that matter!). Thanks for the chance.
