I am a little sad that the giveaway is over. I have so enjoyed reading all of your comments and can’t wait to dive into some new books! Thanks for all of the great recommendations. If I had all the time in the world I would love to email each and every one of you just to talk about books! If any of you are looking for some new reading material for you or your kids, I encourage you to take a look through the comments. At some point I may make a comprehensive list of the most-recommended books for anyone who might be interested, but for now, I’ll just mention a few that stand out:
Harry Potter - I love them too! I am currently reading the first in the series out loud to my students and they are loving it!
Material Obsession came up again and again as a favourite sewing book. I have yet to read this one but it sounds like I need to add it to the list!
Karen Kingsbury was mentioned several times. I have not read any of her books but know many who do.
The Red Tent is a book I would also recommend to others.
Like Water for Elephants, Book of Negroes, and the Time Traveller’s Wife are all books that have been recommended to me before and your thoughts echoed what I had already heard.
You can’t go wrong with the classics – Lord of the Rings, Little House on the Prairie, the Narnia Series, and Anne of Green Gables are all books I have enjoyed both in childhood and adulthood and they came up over and over again in your recommendations. For adult reading Pride and Prejudice and To Kill a Mockingbird were mentioned often.
There are many, many, more but I know what you are really waiting for is to find out who the winner is, so without further ado…..
The winner is … Janet! She wrote: My favourite book of all is called Oh Rugged Land of Gold. It is the tale of a woman’s survival in the Alaskan wilderness and is very inspirational for any woman. Thanks for a chance at your giveaway.
Congratulations Janet, and thanks to all of you for stopping by!
