Want to win a book?


Do you like getting free stuff? Is the sky blue? Are you watching Olympic swimming competitions just to check out the guys’ hot bodies? Okay, so ‘yes’.

I’m joining in a little game started by Kia at ‘Good Enough Mama’. She had a children’s book giveaway, and I won a free book. Go me. So, now it’s up to me to ‘pay it forward’ and give a book of my own (or of John M’s own). Poor child doesn’t even know I’m raiding his bookshelf.

I’ve chosen the book, ‘Rainbow Fish and the Big Blue Whale’. Sorry, I couldn’t part with the original ‘Rainbow Fish’ because it’s one of my favorites (oh yeah, I mean one of John M.’s favorites). I think ‘Rainbow Fish and the Big Blue Whale’ is the third in the series and its lesson is one of seeing past physical differences and acceptance. It’s a sweet story and has beautiful artwork. And did I mention, it’s FREE!

If you would like to win it, for your kid (or yourself), you need to leave a comment. It doesn’t have to be about why you want the book, just any old comment will do. ‘I love cheese’, etc.

On Sunday August 31st, I will put all of the entrants’ names in a bowl and have John M. choose the winner.

If you’re the winner, you get the book and you get to ‘pay it forward’ with a book giveaway of your own. And maybe I’ll win yours and we can start this whole process again. Won’t that be fun?

Looks like I came back at just the right time! Sorry gone so long. Just needed some time. A lot has gone on with me and I'll post all about it soon on my blog. I have really missed all my blog friends! Just missed blogging. It feels good to be back. Hope I can earn my spot back on your Links, :). I'll come back and try and read some posts and catch up. Just making the rounds real quick to say hi. Take care girl!

How appropriate is this??? The rainbow fish who gave away it's beautiful scales to the other fish to be beautiful - is being given away for someone else.

Sometimes I'm surprised at the thoughtfulness of my own wife.

Actually, no I haven't been watching the Olympic swimming just to look at the hot bodies. But now I feel like I missed out because I've heard/read alot of people (women) talking about this!
What is wrong with me?!?!?

Oh yeah, I've been too busy listening to my 24/7 Kenny Channel on XM! :P


P.S. I love cheese (I really do)

What a great idea!! Put my name in (because we have the "original" Rainbow Fish, but not this one!). and, btw, Aug. 31 is my birthday so I think this would be an excellent bday present. LOL
