This I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope. It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every moring: great is thy faithfulness. The Lord is my portion saith my soul: therefore will I hope in him. The Lord is good unto them that wait for Him, to the soul that seeketh him. It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the LORD. Lamentations 3: 21-26

Book Giveaway

Pay It Forward Book Exchange
created by Overwhelmed With Joy

The Pay It Forward Book Exchange is going strong. Several bloggers have been inspired to play along and host giveaways and I am ready to jump in too.













The first book I am going to give away is Crime and Clutter by Cyndy Salzman. I got this from Glass Road Public Relations a while back and already gave away one copy of it. Now this one is gently read and greatly enjoyed.

Perhaps it is because I enjoy quirky recipes. Perhaps it is the fact I join with five other friends on a regular basis for a girls night about once a month and we have been doing so for over sixteen years now—although, we don’t have a spiffy name for our group like the FAC (Friday Night Club) of the book, but I know what it’s like to have good friends. Or perhaps it is the era that I was a child in that this book revisits, although my parents were never flower children. I don’t know what it is, but this book resonated with me.

It was not what I expected, but it was more. I enjoyed it so much. Cyndy Salzman writes in a real and honest way about real and honest things but presents them in a unique light. Her book is full of humor, good recipes and love.

And so with that I am going to give away my copy of Crime and Clutter. If you would like to win it, it’s as easy as leaving a comment in the comments section saying, “Enter my name.” or something to that effect. If you want to link here and tell other people that is fine, but not a requirement. Remember you will need to be willing to give me your e-mail and IRL address to receive the book. So please, if you don’t think you want to do that, leave me a lovely comment elsewhere on my blog.

This giveaway will run until Sunday, August 12, when I will draw a winner's name. I am also going to be giving away a CD on my blog. The artist is someone that I'm quite partial to.

I will be giving away another book next week, posting more about that on Monday, August 13.

Good luck!!
