The months sure go by fast…don’t they? Because it is month’s end, Friday field trip today will be used for the book giveaway since it is already time to announce the winner of January’s book selection, Vedge by Rich Landau & Kate Jacoby. This wonderful cookbook goes to Erica from Illinois. Congratulations Erica! I know you will enjoy this wonderful collection of recipes!
For February, I have chosen the book Lots of Candles, Plenty of Cake by Anna Quindlen for the giveaway.
Anna Quindlen has been a favorite author of mine for a long time. As she did in her beloved New York Times columns, and in A Short Guide to a Happy Life, this Pulitzer Prize winning author uses her past, present, and future to explore what matters most to women at different ages. She celebrates it all – as she considers marriage, girlfriends, mothers, faith, loss, all the stuff in our closets, and more.
“Ask any woman how she makes it through the day, and she may mention her calendar, her to-do lists, her babysitter. But if you push her on how she really makes it through her day, she will mention her girlfriends.”
Candid, funny, and moving, this irresistible memoir is filled with sharp insights and revealing observations.
Just leave a comment on the blog, Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram for a chance to win this month’s author-signed selection. Good luck!
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful weekend!
Remember to take pleasure in simple things, Jackie
