Yes, it's Black Friday, and no, I'm not shopping today, not being a big fan of shopping in general, and especially when stores are crowded.
But I do love books, as everyone knows by now. And so I'm kicking off the Christmas shopping season by an Advent Book Giveaway. Most of the I have been given specifically for giveaways, and books that came as doubles from publishers, so I've decided to give away the extra copy.
I'll have the giveaways for just the next two weeks, every couple of days, so that winners have the chance to get the books before Christmas gift-giving (even to yourself, if you are a winner). I'll have two more books to give away in January, as well.
First up is my November's reviewed book, A Book of Saints for Catholic Moms by Lisa Hendey. I realize I had not yet shared the wonderful book trailer for Lisa's great new book, so here it is:
Here are the rules for this giveaway and all the books in the giveaway. You must comment on the blog post or posts giving away the book. So, if you are interested in The Book of Saints for Catholic Moms, leave a comment here on this post.
In addition, if you are the winner, I will let you know via comment if I do not have an e-mail or a way to reach you. If you do not respond in a few days, I'll pull another name. That's it! Couldn't be easier.
Deadline for this first giveaway is Monday, November 28 at 7 p.m. Central Time.
What are you doing this Black Friday? Our family has a tradition of either a hike or going to the nation's longest-running holiday parade, where this year we will be meeting another family, then getting some lunch together, nowhere near a mall, I hope. Sometimes we see a movie, and Hugo looks good this year, as most of the family has read The Invention of Hugo Cabret.
