Pay It Forward Book Giveaway

I have been meaning to post this Pay It Forward for a while but I just keep forgetting. If you would like to know more about the Pay It Forward giveaway visit Overwhelmed With Joy on all the details. Basically, you enter to win a gently used book, read it and then pass it on to someone else either by a giveaway from your blog or just by giving it to a friend. The purpose is to let other people enjoy a good book. Most people love to read a new book without having to purchase it and it is always great to share. Isn't that what you learned in Kindergarten? On to the book!

I actually have two books up for grabs. One I got from Overwhelmed With Joy and one my mom got from The Mommy Rambles. My mom doesn't have a blog so I told her I would host her Pay It Forward.

Follow the link to read what this story is about. It is a great read.

I also have up for grabs.

The Honk and Holler Opening Soon by Billie Letts

From the back cover:

Caney Paxton wanted his cafe to have the biggest and brightest sign in Eastern Oklahoma-the "opening soon" part was supposed to be just a removable, painted notice. But a fateful misunderstanding gave Vietnam vet Caney the flashiest joke in the entire state. Twelve years later, the once-busy highway is dead and the sign is as worn as Caney, who hasn't ventured outside the diner since it opened. Then one blustery December day, a thirtyish Crow woman blows in with a three-legged dog in her arms and a long-buried secret on her mind. Hiring on as a carhop, Vena Takes Horse is soon shaking up business, the locals, and Caney's she teaches them all about generosity of spirit, love, and the possibility of promise-just like the sign says.

If you would like to read these gently used books and then pass them on to someone else, leave a comment letting me know which book you would like. If you would like your name put in for both books let me know that also. There will be 2 winners. One for each book. I will leave comments open until Friday, Nov. 30, 2007. US and Canada residents only.

I’m not going to ask to be entered in your drawing this time because I still have a stack of books to get through, but thanks for participating in my November Pay It Forward Book Exchange by hosting your own giveaway. I’ve got you linked in my post!

By the way, I'm giving away copies of "Confessions of a Prep School Mommy Handler" so stop by and leave a comment to be entered to win! :)

I would love either of the two books and would gift them to my best friend and then we usually give them to our local library. They decide to either add them to the library's existing collection or put them in the book sale, to help the children's programs out.

I would love to win either of these! After reading I will Pass It On, on my blog!
