Adopt [WIN] a book.

May loves books. May believes books should be read, loved, and held. May is also sad that her Borders is closing, and a few days ago when she went in, she was distressed to see some of her favorite titles still sitting there, waiting for a good home. Poor things! Why haven’t they been chosen?!

sometimes May talks to her books, and refers to herself in third person. May is crazy. She tried to warn you…

So a few dollars later these (seriously discounted) five books came home with me, ready for new homes. This post holds FOUR give-aways in one!! on SATURDAY (20th) I will announce winners and next week mail the books to their new homes. Here’s the deal. These are FAVORITE – as in – 5 Star/A /fave reads. So take a look – and let me know which one(s) you might want to adopt…

Ye olde tale of tomboy-ish girl who decides to ‘target practice’ her efforts for landing a husband on her brother’s friend… only to fall madly in love with him. Tessa Dare’s first novel – and still one of my favorites from her.

My #1 FAVE Kinsella book – this one is about a girl on a plane who confesses ALL her deep dark secrets to stranger on plane only to find that stranger is owner of company she works for. And craziness + funny things ensue. I recommend this one – often.

Courtney Milan is a mad genius/artist with her words. AMAZING would be not strong enough a word to describe her books. This one? Can’t say enough or try to explain. It’s awesome ye olde EnglandΒ love story – full range of emotion and soooo fantastic.

Thea Harrison writes dark, plot twisty, utterly fantastic Urban Fantasy/Paranormal Romance. ZOMG! Crazy good. So far just 2 books – and yes they’re the start of a series… and winner will get BOTH books. Just read #2 (Storm’s Heart) and loved it.

So what’s your pleasure? Tell me what you prefer, or if any at all would be nice and I’ll throw all names in hat + pick winners on 8/20. Good luck! I hope to send these awesome books to good homes soon…

  1. I’m always looking for a good read! I’m a big Kinsella fan and have read all of hers, so either Dare or Milan would be my top 2 picks. Cool giveaway!!

  2. wow. super nice of you! It is sad, Borders closing; they just didn’t develop a good online presence to go with the actual store imho. Kinsella sounds fun πŸ™‚ The others sound good, too, tho. I’m for just tossing everyone’s name in the hat, but it’s all good πŸ™‚ thx!

  3. Hi May, They all sound really fun, I’ll wait for the giveaway, just in case, but then I think I might just order all of them from amazon. thanks for the suggestions.

  4. You have picked one of my favorite pastimes….reading. Can You Keep a Secret sounds intriguing, so that would be my pick. There is nothing more relaxing than sitting in my lounge chair and reading a book in the wee morning hours with my favorite cup of coffee of course.
    Thanks for a great giveaway!

  5. Hi May, any of these books would be great to win. I’ve really enjoyed some of your recent reading recommendations!

  6. Lol! May, you crack me up! You also got me hooked on these romance books. I am eagerly waiting the new Courtney Milan one. I would love to win the Tessa Dare book- haven’t read her yet. I was in Borders yesterday and picked up Meg Cabots Good Night Charlie-so far so great! Every Julia Quinn book was sold out.

  7. As another book/read lover, I feel your pain. Our book stores are a thing of the past too. I have read all of Kinsella’s books, but would love to make a “home” for any of the others. Thanks for the chance and love your blog.

  8. May, I love that you admit and embrace your crazy side! Who doesn’t refer to themselves in the third person? I haven’t read any of these, they all sound great! I’m up for any of them!

  9. Hi May! That one called ‘Can you keep a secret?’ sounds really interesting… (*ellen likes books, too….*) LOL. what a great thing, giving away books…. you rock… πŸ™‚

  10. I love seeing what you are reading on Goodreads. These all sound great! I woul dlove to try out any one of them!

  11. I would be happy with any of the books; “Can You Keep A Secret” sounds really interesting, though. I am sorry about Borders closing. Ours is, too. Thanks for the chance to win!!

  12. I would be happy with any. But, Goddess of the Hunt sounds like a good one. I read Can You Keep a Secret before. Thanks for a chance to win. Yes, I hate that Borders is closing too. Happy reading.

  13. I would glady accept any of them
    but the 2 that really stand out are Can you keep a secret and Unvieled
    Thanks so much—I LOVE books and hate to see all the stores closing.

  14. I’ve read the Thea books, Goddess of the Hunt looks good! Or Unveiled! I am sad, but our Borders closed last year, so I didn’t get to grab any of the spectacular deals. πŸ™

  15. I’m putting my name in the hat for…Sophie Kinsella’s “Can you keep a secret?”.

  16. May – I have read ” Can you keep a secret?” and loved it, but not read any of the others. Sorry Borders is closing. We don’t have a bookstore in our mall anymore and I think that is just plain wrong.

  17. I have loved everything you have recommended – reading through a Jennifer Cruise bundle on my kindle now. It is very sad about Borders closing, they were my favorite store.

  18. i agree, sad that borders is closing . . . barnes and noble has no competition! i would love to read the “can you keep a secret” sounds funny, romantic, drama filled.

  19. I already have BOTH Thea Harrison books and they are every bit as awesome as you say. I am interested in any of the rest though and thanks for sharing!

  20. At first i thought you had a guest poster. Then I remembered that you are “crazy”. jk. Love your blog, love you. I would love to get me hands on that Sophie Kinsella book. I promise to share the love and pass it on after I finish.



  21. I feel exactly the same way about books! I keep telling my DH if we hit the lottery I want to build a two story library to house them all!

    I would love to read Thea Harrison since I have never read any of her books before.

    Thanx for the chance to win!

    or Tessa Dare’s!:D

  23. Thank you for such a generous opportunity to win a book. I adore Historical Romance books which always transport me back to another time and place where people lived, loved and were finding their way to each other.

    I’ve read all of Tessa’s books which I completely and utterly loved. If I’m lucky enough to be chosen, then I would love to read Courtney Milan’s “Unveiled”.

    Thank you again.


  24. I haven’t read anything by any of these authors but they all sound like something I’d like. Would be happy with any one of them.

  25. Love great books! Love even better when someone can recommend them for me. I would be proud to give any one of these a read – thanks for the chance to adopt!

  26. I’d like to have Sophie Kinsella’s book! Just because my sister’s birthday is coming and she’d like to have that one so I’m giving it to her!:) ..thanks!:*

  27. Each of these books, from you description, sound like something I would like to read, although I believe my first choice would be Can You Keep A Secret. Thanks for the interesting giveaway.

  28. Thanks May. This is my first time here and what a perfect time! I love Tessa Dare’s Goddess of the Hunt. My daughter is a tom-boy and this book reminds me of her. Now her brother had told all his friends that she is off limits. You have put a smile on my face for today at least.

  29. Thank you for such an Inspiring Giveaway May. I am an Avid Reader and have been since I was 4 yrs old and Taught to read by my Grandparents.I believe I had read every Enid Blyton Book by the time I was 7. Also loved Montgomery’s Anne of GreenGables Novels. All the Books you have chosen sound like an Interesting read in their own right but I think I should like to Adopt “Can you Keep A Secret”. Sounds like a light and Fun read, Just what I need at the Moment…………

  30. Oh I love books. I have read a bunch that you have recommended on here and would be happy to have any of them and give them a loving home. πŸ™‚ Thanks May I love your work!

  31. Would you please put my name down for all of them? I would be honoured to receive any of these books. I love reading books! although I have gotten into audio books lately because they’re easier to ‘read’ in the bath and I can do housework whilst listening. Heaven.

  32. What a fun giveaway! The first book! The Goddess of the Hunt! Looks like a historical romance! Yummy!

  33. Just found you on Big Picture Classes…can wait to start the double take class…Thanks for the book suggestions…I want to read Can You Keep A Secret :O) Goddess of the Hunt and Unveiled look good too!

  34. Loved your “Enjoy” word and page on Big Picture Classes and looking forward to more inspiration. Reading is my second love and have not read any of these authors – always looking for someone new and interesting. Thanks.

  35. May, I just discovered you through Big Picture and I would love any of the books. I need a new book to read and any of these look great! Thank you. lenna
