Happy Birthday to My Blog (with presents for YOU)!

When I started this blog a year ago with a post about Reading Diaries,  I was living on the other side of the country, taking care of my daughter while my husband was away, and getting ready for our big move.  We’ve now been in our new home for almost nine months and New Chapters contine to be written in the book of my life.

This year my goal for this blog is to add reviews of 50 more titles.  Since I only actively blogged for a few months last year, I’m hopeful I can accomplish my goal.  In between reviews I’ll share my reflections as I read and research my way through marriage, motherhood and grad school.

Now what’s a birthday without presents?

I came home from ALA Midwinter with a trunkful of books but my bookshelves are already at max capacity and, alas, there’s only so much reading I can humanly do.  So I am offering up some titles for my fellow bibliophiles.  For the next several weeks, I’ll be posting a title or two (or three) and the first person to email me will score a free book or ARC.  Limit one book per person per week.

My email address is joannalima911(at)gmail(dot)com.  Please put the title of the book in the subject line.  I’ll update the post when all the titles have been claimed.

Let’s get started!

Anyone job hunting?  I have a copy of Cover Letters for Dummies by Joyce Lain Kennedy that has been signed by the author!  It could be a great addition to a high school or public library collection, or simply a good resource.

Also signed by the author:  Immortal Champion, the third installment of Lisa Hendrix’s Immortal Brotherhood series.  “He faces a future of cold uncertainy, until her warm embrace…”  Check out the author’s website to learn more.

And lastly (for today) an advance reading copy (ARC) of Little Princes:  One Man’s Promise to Bring Home the Lost Children of Nepal.  Fans of Three Cups of Tea will enjoy this moving memoir by Connor Grennan.  ***UPDATE:  This title has been claimed.  Thanks to everyone who asked about it!***

Good luck & happy reading!  Check back on Fridays for more giveaways.  Later this week—a few YA ARCS.
