President's Day Books Giveaway

Happy President's Day to everyone in the United States!

If you're like me, the only thing you ever look forward to today are the sales that run at every mall, store, or any other place with a discount sign. I rarely go out shopping on President's Day--since my kiddos at home from school--so I thought I'd make things lively with a giveaway of some books. One of them I got when I took my mom to her first book signing at Rose's Bookhouse here in Missouri. It was a signing with Anya Bast, Eileen Dreyer,  Heather Snow, and Patricia Rice. The ladies were wonderful and it was a perfect signing for my mother since she loves historicals.

Let's see what we have here!

First up, a fellow Ballantine author, Monica McCarthy's THE VIPER.

Next, my signed copy of Heather Snow's debut, SWEET ENEMY. Heather was nice enough to toss in some bookmarks and Romance Trading Cards, too. Sa-weet.



Want a chance for a book? (I'll be tossing in some COVETED swag as well.) Just leave a comment about what very exciting (heh heh) things you do on President's Day. I'm might be dangerous and bake banana bread. 

Note: I haven't heard from the winners for the Book Signing Giveaway on January 23rd: Linda Henderson - The Dragon and the Pearl and Simply Kayla - The Paris Affair. I'll be giving you some Coveted Swag as well so shoot me an email! I'll keep trying for a little while. Never give up, never surrender!

My exciting plans for today? I'm going to attempt to clean my kitchen. :( I'm hoping once my husband wakes up (he works graveyard) we can take my son to feed the birds. He LOVES birds. Currently he's glued to the TV watching Rio... again. So it'd be nice to get out of the house today and probably get pooped on. Anything to avoid my kitchen.

My plans involve lots of work, it's tax season, and there is no such thing as a day off until after April 17th.

Heather Snow said...

It was such a pleasure meeting you (and your mom!). And thanks for spreading the word and giving way my debut!

For president's day, I will be catching up on my blog tour posts!

Well, my exciting day consisted of going to work - we don't get President's Day off where I work, unfortunately. But I'm celebrating after work by visiting this awesome blog, how about that?

I went to lunch with my Mom and then took her to the lighting store to pick out a new lampshade.

I had to teach today, I'm afraid! I don't think I've ever gotten Presidents Day off!

The kids didn't have school today so we went to the YMCA and worked out while my youngest went swimming. We also had our first snow this winter! (NC) so there was some sledding in the morning...it was gone by the afternoon. It was a good day :) thanks for the give away.

Sounds like everyone's day was as exciting as mine! LOL

@Heather - Thanks for the warm welcome, Heather! It was nice to see you as well.

I hope everyone had a great holiday. I'm from Canada so there's no holiday. However some provinces do have "Family Day" today which is a day off for celebrating with family. Pretty nice! Too bad my province doesn't have it. I would love to spend the day reading.

Since I was off for President's Day I scheduled a doctor's appointment. After that I was reading and catching up on bills. Other than the reading, real fun stuff.

I worked and made chili for dinner. Thanks for the great giveaway. I would love a copy of The Viper.
