You can enter to win both book giveaways, but I need two separate entries. If you'd like to win one, email me at Email me!. If that link doesn't work for you, the email address is: lholstine@yahoo.com. Your subject line should read either Win "Summer Beach Reads" or Win "Dads and Grads". Your message should include your mailing address. Entrants are eligible from both the U.S. and Canada, but no P.O. Boxes, please.

The Dads and Grads Contest will end on June 30 at midnight, and I'll announce the winners on July 1. The Summer Beach Reads Giveaway will end on July 2 at midnight, and the winners will be announced on July 3. Once I pick the winners, Hatchette will be notified, and they will send the books directly to the winners.

Good luck!

Great giveaways and here is why my DH needs to win:
My husband is both the best Dad and the best Grad. 5 years ago, while our son was still in college, we both lost our jobs. I got a job where our son was in college which helped with 1/2 price tuition, but my DH could not find a job. After 2 years he decided to go back to college. He never graduated because he went to Vietnam instead. Well, we got my son out of college, and my DH graduates Suma Cum Laude with his master's degree in 4 weeks. Then, he starts his PhD program. He will be 66 when he finishes he PhD and will begin teaching at a University. He has also done all the housekeeping, cooking and errands while he has been in school and I have been supporting us. I can't tell you how proud of him I am.
I am a follower of your blog.

by the way, While my DH is reading his great set of "Dad's and Grad's" books, I will need something new to read so just send along the Summer beach bag for me!!! :-)

Lesa said...


What a wonderful story about a very special man. You must be really proud of your husband. I'll put your email address in to win both contests, but it would be best if you sent me your mailing address. My email is lholstine@yahoo.com.

And, good luck. You're right. He certainly deserves a prize.

Thanks for the notes!
