I would love to win because, although I am a mom, my son doesn't know, because of his disabilities. And my daughter that I gave up for adoption has my heart, but will never know me. A good cheering up would do my heart good.

My email is r.a.k@comcast.net.

I'd love to win and read these books. Reading about moms, for some reason, always brings a ton of emotion and I usually cry. I could also read these to my mom who has alzheimers and it would entertain her for a bit!

I haven't read a book since my baby was born (excepting those of the Cat in the Hat ilk). I love unexpected literary finds -- things I might not have picked out on my own, but end up devouring -- these sound like great choices!

Andria said...

I would love a chance to win. Thank you.

NotNessie said...

Since I became a mom, reading about mommyhood has been incredibly comforting. It's nice to know I'm not the only one going crazy.. haha

I would love to win these books because my "to be read" stack is getting short, which makes me nervous!! I always need to have fresh reading material around -- and these books look great! I've actually read Beginner's Greek and really enjoyed it, but only borrowed it from the library, so I'd love to own it along with the others.

Doubting Thomas said...

Thank you, for holding such a wonderful giveaway, I truly appreciate it! I am a 3 time cancer survivor (age 10, brain tumor[Menegeoma], age 21 Uterine Cancer [discovered when I was 6 months pregnant], age 36 skin cancer), as well as a 30% Service Connected Disabled Veteran (US Army 6 years). I am adopting my Husbands Boys that have been living with my Husband and I for 11 years, after my Husbands X stabbed him the in the stomach, in front of the boys. One needs a heart transplant (his heart is functioning at 30%, One is Bipolar, and one has post traumatic stress and Oppositional defiant disorder. I have tried to teach my kids, that nothing is so bad, that you can not over come it. Laughter goes a long way to making yourself, and those around you feel better. I refuse to go to bed angry, and I refuse to wake up angry. I try and make the most out of every day (including taking time to stop and smell the roses). I just turned 46, and have done so much...I lived in Europe, I sang in a band, I play Cello and Bass, I love my kids, I have a great Husband...and you know, I don't think I would have done so much if I had not had cancer. My personal philosophy about life reflects the Tim McGraw song “Live like you’re dying” P.S. One of my few remaining goals in life, is to learn to surf!
