Summer Reading Giveaway

by | Jul 24, 2020 | Giveaways, Uncategorized | 191 comments

Hi Friends,

Summer is a great time to relax and read a good book! I’d love to share some that I’ve enjoyed with you.

This month I’m giving away three novels that are great for summer reading, so we’ll have three winners. You can choose one of these books: If I Were You by Lynn Austin, A New Shade of Summer by Nicole Deese, or On a Summer Tide by Suzanne Woods Fisher.

To enter the giveaway leave a comment below. Tell me your favorite place to read in the summer and which book you’d like to receive. Also, please let me know if you live in the US or Canada.  I’ll choose three winners on August 7, after 9:00 pm ET. This giveaway is open to US and Canadian reading friends. Canadians will receive a $15 gift card rather than a book. I’ll notify the winners by email the first week of August. Good luck!

Until Next Time ~ Happy Reading!

Carrie

    In the summer I have two places I love to read–lying on my back in bed with my head propped up or on my living room sofa–just so it’s in air conditioning. Summers are really hot in Houston, TX! I’d like to win Nicole Deese’s book since I have the other two and have already read them and loved them. Thanks for this give-away!

    I enjoy reading year round either on the couch or in bed. Summers are brutal in Texas, so I agree with Suzanne that AC is a necessity in this heat. I would pick Lynn Austin’s If I Were You because I enjoyed a video she did when her book first released.

    Hi Carrie. I hope you’re doing well. We’re hanging in there. It’s been hot here in northern Utah lately, but at least we don’t have the high humidity of some other places. It’s more of a dry heat. My favorite place to read in the summer is on my porch swing in the evening when it cools down.

    I’ve read Nicole’s book and loved it! I’d love to win On a Summer Tide or If I Were You.

    I love to either read on my porch or in my hammock in the backyard. It’s a toss up for me between Lynn Austin’s book and Nicole Deese’s book! Thanks for the giveaway. Also, thanks for sharing your garden photos in your newsletter. I have phlox, too!

    My favorite spot to read is my chair next to my bed. I used to read in bed, but that’s over. I’ll take all three, but the one that strikes me most is On Summer Tide.

    My favorite place to read is anytime, anywhere & under any circumstances! I’m serious! The Kindle app was such a blessing in my life so now I don’t always have to carry a book around with me, I can just read on my iPhone —while I stand in line, while I’m parked in line, while I’m riding with my people, while I’m waiting on my people, when I’m on hold on the phone, when I can’t sleep (OFTEN) & yes, I am that person who has been busted for reading while waiting for our meal after it’s been ordered! I have been dealing with with chronic pain for the past several years. Getting lost in a book is one of my best ways of dealing with non-ending, drive you crazy nerve pain. I would very much like to read IF I WERE YOU.

    My favourite place to read winter or summer is my easy chair in the living room. I sit there with my book, my kitty and a cup of coffee. I live in Canada so if I win you will send me the gift certificate. Thanks for having it open for Canada as well as the US. I appreciate that.

    Wow you sure have a lot of responses but I love to read in my chair that is in the living room. The window is there and I can see everyone who comes up the driveway even deer. There are 14 bird feeders out the window also as you can tell we are bird watchers here in Iowa. When I see all those birds I wish that I fed the hummingbirds more when I lived in Ca we had a feeder but I was so busy raising 3 kids and working that the bird feeder was like the almost last on my list. When I sit in my chair my 2 chihuahuas love to sit on my lap and take a nap. So during the week the house is nice and quiet like at night. I would love to read the book by Lynn Austin if not available then any one that is. Thank you so much for offering a print book as I am battling a disease and read print only and most of the contests are ebooks Be safe and hugs

    Where do I like to read? Well, lately, reading is easier said than done! Anywhere and anytime I get more than 15 minutes alone time, I tend to put my nose in a book, or tune into one of my Audible library selections. Now, I do have a couple of ideal reading scenarios. Perhaps outdoors on a temperate, mosquito-free day, feet up, a tall glass of iced tea or lemonade to hand. Or maybe, on a cool day, cozily piled up in a favorite chair, steaming cup of something hot at my elbow. Oh, how I love to dream!!

    I can read anywhere except in a moving vehicle. I would take a good book over a movie or t.v. any day. My almost twelve-year-old grandson says he cannot understand why I love to read so much but my mom said I memorized my books as a child. Books are the best gift to me. So winning more books would be a dream come true.
