Thank You, Giveaway

This contest is now CLOSED! Thank you for entering.

As Thanksgiving approaches I am ever mindful of what I am thankful for; my health, family, dear friends and my love of reading and what it has given me. I want to extend my good fortune, thanks and love of reading to those that follow my blog and make it a part of their life. I have selected a collection of books that I believe will enrich your library as much as it has mine.

  21. Hello!

    I'm quite thankful for everything in my life; friends, family, health and of course the ability to live a comfortable. In other third world countries its sad to know that the distribution of food and shelter isn't properly shared. I'm very thankful for everything and my parents who have sacrificed their time and wealth for my well being. I used to live in the Philippines (but then I moved here in America thanks to my mom) even though the country suffers from destitution I felt well taken care of. And that's what I am extremely thankful for; my parents, my supportive friends of course my faith in God.

  22. I am thankful for my wonderful family.

  23. I am thankful for my wonderful husband, and precious children.

    I am also thankful that no matter what is happening in my life I am still able to find ways to give back to others.

  35. At first I wasn't really thankful for anything because apparently I used to be spoiled by my parents and such.. but the moment when grandfather died last year I realized that I have to value every moment with my family and friends. Life is too short, I regretted turning down the days where my grandfather always wanted to spend time with me. I realized this and I have to be thankful for my family's love and and my friend's support. Nothing last forever and I will always cherish each day with my family.


    my email is:
    btw I am currently following you BUT there are some defaults in my comp so it probably won't show

  36. This is an incredible giveaway! Thank you so much. I'm thankful that I was finally able to meet and be with my long distance boyfriend for the past 3 months. He just went back home to Colombia last monday, and although we're VERY far away (I'm in Wisconsin), I know that this is one of the best things that has happened to me. It's very hard being without him now, but I wouldn't change what happened for the world.
