Book Lover's Giveaway - Audible


Ya gotta LOVE Christmas season!!  I get this almost overwhelming build-up of all the things I ABSOLUTELY MUST DO!  Buried in my long list is "And have fun doing it!" which comes in a tone of voice implying "or else" 'cause it's Christmas!!

As much as I love the lights and pizzazz in the middle of winter, not to mention celebrating the birth of The Baby, there's this build-up of tension as my relaxing Time-To-Read gets smooshed.  The kids (you  can now exclaim, "she's so old!" and I get to growl "am not!") are back in school & the house is finally quiet and I am realizing December is short and I get to enjoy our Treasures (kids) for Christmas break too soon including (but not limited to) sugary-spikes of energy bursts & a birthday party & who-knows-what Expectations (met & unmet). It's enough to scare me into hiding 'til January except for that very important "AND HAVE FUN DOING IT!" requirement.

In light of all the FUN to be had, I am giving away an Audio book. 

It is coming from, so there may be some important things you want to check out from their Terms & Conditions most notably, "Gift Audiobooks must be redeemed at". You'll be able to download your book on your computer or listening device and, MOST IMPORTANTLY..... keep "reading" WHILE tackling all the Christmas FUN!!

If you actually read all that pre-amble while hopping around on a Giveaway Hop, I congratulate you... and offer you (and only you) the option of turning this book into a gift card to pass on or choose your Audible book later when you can decide. Now on to the good stuff...
