Book Giveaway - In Grandma's Attic

If you've been reading my blog for more than two minutes, you know how much our family loves reading books. Therefore, for my first ever blog giveaway, it only seemed appropriate to share a book with you.

In Grandma's Attic, by Arleta Richardson, is a sweet book in which a grandmother relates stories from her childhood, each of which teaches a valuable lesson. Not only have my girls enjoyed these stories; I read them when I was a child as well! This book would be appropriate as a read-aloud for young children and as a read-alone book for ages nine and up. [Edited to note: Cover of book I am offering varies somewhat from picture in link.]

To enter to win, leave a comment on this post about a book your family enjoys reading. If you are a follower of my blog, you will automatically be entered, so will receive an additional entry when you leave a comment. If you comment anonymously, please include your e-mail address as part of your comment so that I will be able to reach you should you win. U.S. residents only, please.

This giveaway will run through next Sunday, May 3rd, ending at 11:00 P.M. Eastern Time. The winner will be selected randomly and I will publish a post naming the winner on Monday, May 4th.

Thanks for participating! Looking forward to hearing about books you enjoy!
