IT DOESN'T TAKE MUCH TO MAKE ME HAPPY. A flickering candle, smoldering incense. Delicious food. Good wine. Honorable, passionate people. Dazzling sunsets. Enchanting moonbeams. A sensuous life. Perfect espresso to make the perfect cappuccino. For readers to love my books.

Okay, maybe I need to rephrase that opening thought. New opening thought: I AIM HIGH.

Children's Book Give-away

Just now as I was doing the laundry, I decided to go a step further and organize a shelf that had gathered quite an array of... odd ball items. Among them, a brand new paper-back copy of 'All The Lovely Bad Ones', a children's book by Mary Downing Hahn. My son had given it to my youngest daughter for Christmas. She had, in fact, received over a dozen books (she takes after mama; little girl's an avid reader!) and blazed through them all quickly, as she usually does.

So why hadn't my daughter read 'All The Lovely Bad Ones'? Because, it turns out, she already has a copy. The copy I found in the laundry room is a spare.

Well, why not make my over-flow your gain? Besides, you guys know I love giving things away to my readers. :) Visit my About page, to see what I mean.

This book is free to a good home. Leave me a comment requesting the book, if you'd like it. As it is a children's book, I'd like it to go to someone who has kids or will give it to a child.

At the end of the weekend (Sunday evening), I'll draw a name at random and notify the winner in a comment right here. So if you enter the drawing, please check back Sunday night to see if you've won. Good luck, darlings!

Moonbeams and Luv ~

As a middle school Language teacher, I would love to share this book with the 100+ students on my team! In our classroom collection, it will be used next year, and the year after, etc.! Spread the love as far as you can by awarding it to 126B!

OMG I LOVE that book! Reading this one prompted me to check out more of Hahn's books, and I also highly recommend "Deep and Dark and Dangerous." It's wonderfully creepy. :-)
