Bloggy Giveaway Carnival: 2 Free Books


UPDATE: The winners of this giveaway have been announced right here.

Shannon at Rocks in My Dryer is hosting another Bloggy Giveaway Carnival and I'm joining in the fun!

I'm giving away two brand new copies of the book, Confessions of a Prep School Mommy Handler, a memoir by Wade Rouse.

I reviewed this book in a previous post. You can see the details right here.

If you're interested in winning one of these books, just leave me a comment! I'll pick two winners this Saturday morning, 2 February.

I'll also have more books up for grabs for my February Pay It Forward Book Exchange! Check back on Monday, 4 February for that book giveaway list.

To see what others are giving away, stop by Shannon's Bloggy Giveaways Carnival: Winter '08 Edition.

One last note:

I'm also giving away brand new Beech-Nut Easy Pour™ dry baby cereal right here.

Frequently the reason behind the desire to write this type of paper remains unclear. However, once the events are recounted and recorded, it becomes clear that the writer is striving to find the universal truth.
