Holiday Celebration Giveaway

December 1st, 2009 by Debbie's World of Books


The holidays are a time of giving and I thought doing a big holiday giveaway would be fun and give me a chance to clear out some shelves for the new year.  So this is how it will go the winner will get to pick 5 books from the list below.  Then a second winner will be chosen and get to choose 3 books from the remaining.  Update: I am adding a third winner who will also get to choose 3 books from the remaining list. Easy peasy right?
