Finally...I have for you the book giveaway I promised! I had originally intended to announce this earlier so I could get the books to the winners before Christmas, but then I had to move suddenly and everything went haywire.  But still, they will be great books to read on a Rudolph day during the year, during Christmas in July, or next year for The Christmas Spirit reading challenge.  Thank you so much for bearing with me during this trying time in my family's life.  Here's hoping 2011 will be a much better year for us.

Now...on to the giveaway! Here are the goodies:

TITLES (from top left, moving clockwise)
--When Santa Fell to Earth by Cornelia Funke
(brand new trade paperback)
--The Quiet Little Woman by Louis May Alcott
(brand new hardcover)
--The Christmas Tree by Julie Salamon
(discarded library hardcover, large print)
--The Christmas Candle by Max Lucado
(brand new hardcover)
--A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens
(discarded library hardcover, beautifully illustrated)
--The Gift by Nora Roberts 2 in 1
Home for Christmas
All I Want for Christmas
(gently used hardcover)

Giveaway details:
  • Giveaway is open to US and CANADA only.  I'm sorry international friends, but the move during Christmas really strapped me.
  • There will be three winners...first, second, and third place.  When I announce the winners, the first place winner will be emailed and will choose the three they would like, second place will choose the two they would like and third place will get the book that is left.
  • To enter, fill out the FORM BELOW with name and email address.  Extra entries will be given for following here and at The True Book Addict and for following The Christmas Spirit (@thexmasspirit) on Twitter.
  • You must include your email address for entry and winners will have 48 hours to respond after winning.
  • Please do not leave entries in the comments (unless the form is not working), but comments are appreciated.  =O)
  • Giveaway will end on Thursday, January 6th at 11:59 pm.
Good luck and Merry Christmas!
