Great Monday Give: Surprise Grab Box

Summer has officially arrived and what better time to stir up some trouble with another Great Monday Give Surprise Grab Box loaded with mystery goody books aplenty. The last time this happened, you can see what came of it. The winner, Stephanie, not only posted all the contents on her blog, but she also followed that up with some choice reviews of her winnings. Now it's your chance to be so lucky. I'm gonna let this one simmer for two weeks, but to be entered to win, simply leave a comment on this post before June 27, Sunday at 11:59 PM sharp. A winner will be selected at random and announced the next day. Good luck!

As for last week's give... the winner of Millions and Millions and Millions! is ans... Congrats and send me an e-mail at webe(at)soon(dot)com. Have a great one all!

Amelia PS said...

what a wonderful passion you have for stories! I share it.
Eevery night my two boys want to make up stories for them and i find it a wonderful challenge to my imagination and a game I will probably cherish after they grow up. They give me the start (a character, a setting, a time in history...) and i build on that. I usually never have a plan, I just go with the flow and see their reactions to teh "plot". It is difficoult sometimes though. I am thinking or getting some inspiration from old books...would LOVE to see what inspiring stories your magic box may have...
Wonderful blog, very inspiring. Thank you!!! Amelia

Catherine said...

I'm 36 weeks pregnant and the little bean would LOVE some vintage books to read after he arrives.

Paton said...

Hi,
we're just starting to read to our 4 1/2 month old boy and a box of books would set us up for a long time. Thanks once again for doing this blog. It is a great way for a new parent to find some good books for the boy.
Cheers

I daresay my boy will be utterly uninterested in books and longing for plastic aeroplanes and guns, but as long as he's young enough not to object he's getting nice books! For now, he's still in my belly, so no choice whatsoever! hurray!
