Anne Tyler Book & A Giveaway


I settled on reading Anne Tyler's book. "Back When We Were Grownups."

I read about a third of it. Anne Tyler is typically always a good read.



It is one of those women's fiction books that you settle into like you're wrapping yourself in a soft blanket.

I'll dig back into it tonight.

Anne Tyler has always been one of my favorite writers.

I have a giveaway to announce. 

It is a Brentwood Home Holistic Wellness Bundle. I just received one of my own. 
 
Here's what you will get if you win: 

 
Item #2 = Latex/Kapok Pillow
Item #3 = Aromatherapy Candle 

This bundle costs over $150. You can read about it here.

We all need to slow down and de-stress. Taking time for ourselves is key to our well-being and health.  

All you need to do is comment on this post to enter this giveaway. 

This could be a gift for you. Or it might be a nice Christmas present for someone you know.

You will have until this Sunday to enter

I will then pick a winner with the Random Generator. And let you know the winner next week.

  2. Thanks again for another good author to read! I have been listing the books I want to read on my phone under notes. At times when I go to the library and if I am tired, my mind goes completely blank of the authors I like to read. Since we have downsized and moved, I am so blessed to have a wonderful library. Hope the puppies are doing well.

  6. OOOOOOOO. I would love to win. You said that you are into the book.....how is it? I am making a list of all the books you read so that when I'm finished with one, I have a reference to go to. I have a long trip coming up and I need a book or two to keep occupied. What will you be doing for Thanksgiving? Give a pat on the head to Abi and Charlie.

  7. "Back When We Were Grownups" is on my reading list. I'm looking forward to reading it.
    It is so thoughtful of you to have a giveaway for your readers! It would be an awesome gift for my daughter. She's gone back to college while still working full-time. Needless to say, she has a lot of stress in her life!
