*raised hand* i can never have too many books or magazines.... (just don't tell my husband I said that!).

Marie said...

I would love some new/old books it's like receiving a wrapped present ~ you never know what's inside. Thanks!!

Unknown said...

As someone who loves and appreciates all books and has shared with her daughter the same values... These books would be going to a wonderful home!! :)

ashleigh said...

ohh yes, there is nothing better than a stack of old, well loved books to have around!

i love books so much!

Unknown said...

interesting...okay! I'm too curious not to say yes.

Molly McGonigle said...

I love that you give away your literature to people who you know will love it!

Raj said...

Fantastic, interesting give away!
Yes pleaseee :)

Liv said...

a surprise box of reading material? yes, please!

Unknown said...

perfect idea! I would love to take a swim in what you have to share...and aren't books and magazines the best presents to get? (and give!!)

this makes me want to make a similar offering, to keep this going.

Wow! Yes, please! I am an extreme papyrophile, as well as an avid lover of 'mystery gifts.' What an intriguing giveaway!

Jen said...

I would LOVE a new stash of books! I've been in a state of flux with my current library and need a change :)

Mary Grace said...

YES, please! I'm currently on the lookout of what to read this season. I need some inspiration. This giveaway is a treasure, so please pick me!

Jg. for FatScribe said...

did someone say "giveaway"?! lovely idea for a thoughtful, interesting gift basket to a friend or two, no? As I am currently moving (not chronicling the, ahem, adventure like you and your daughter did!), giving away a substantial portion of my library is befitting as well.

don't have to enter me into the drawing, Tina. just wanted to say "hey," and another great post!

DeeDee said...

I have just the place for the books and many friends to share
with them.

RMP said...

I do hope we are drawn from a hat, as i fear if we are judged upon our comments i may be bringing up the rear!...could certainly do with a little literary inspiration :)

Jacqueline said...

This is such a lovely giveaway, it has made my day even if I don't win :)

anya elise said...

This is a great idea. And though I really don't need more books (wait, what am I saying?!), I'm entering anyway. :)

Nothing better than a box of books, especially when they are generously free!

Anonymous said...

oh. I would, I would very much like a box of magazines to drift away with now. Oh. I would so very much need it. Do not know what to do about myself, not where to go, feels like I am blowing up.
Just got told by this boy I am so veryvery very much in love with, that he has met another girl...who he really likes, so we can not be.
oh. how much I believed in this.
and, how lost I feel now.

I'm also up for it, how couldn't I? Collecting books and magazines -and reading them, of course- is one of my very few addictions (tea and chocolate are probably amongst the others :-D).

Thanks for your generosity and good luck to all of the participants in this wonderful giveaway!
