300th Post :: July Book Give Away

As I was about to write this post, I looked and saw that this is my 300th post on this blog.  Wow!  I've had a lot of say....lol.  Hopefully it's been meaningful to you, in some regards.  I find this journaling, this chronicling of our lives relaxing and very needed!  Even though I haven't taken a lot of time to sit at the computer over the past few weeks (enjoying being outside of doors this summer) I'm always thinking about my blog and those of you who frequent it!

I have to tell you that I'm very excited about the books I've found for this Give Away.  For those of you who don't know, I'm a BIG lover of books.  I also think it's important to reuse books that are in good condition (these books are in great condition).  Well, I've found some more and am giving all three of them away!!!  What a great set to add to your library.  Here they are and you can find more information about the individual books further below (table of contents).

So, if you're interested in winning these books, please leave a comment below.  Yep, that simple.  If you'd like to increase your chances to win, blog about it and leave a comment and link below.  If you're a follower of this blog, I'll add your name again (to the drawing).  Also, if you're a part of the 100 Books-a-Month Challenge, I'll add your name as well.  One more way, if you link your 100 Books-a-Month post for July, I'll enter you once more.  See, aren't those odds pretty good? :D

This Give Away will close on Saturday, July 31, 2010 at 10 pm.  I will announce the winner on Sunday, August 1st.  Good luck to each of you!  Please spread the word! :D
