I love books.
So when I heard that Beth Revis, an author and blogger with an indomitable spirit is offering up a mega(lodon) giveaway of books, she reeled me in.
The catch is that those 19 exciting (and signed!) books are located in a waterproof case submerged underwater at the 14th tee at the Carbrook Golf Club in Brisbane, Australia.
Okay so the books aren’t really there, but this video is proof that I have been smart to avoid all bodies of water–sharks can be anywhere. Now I know why golfers call that a water hazard.
Which is why we’re gonna need a bigger book.
And that’s really all Beth wants–for us to blog about the books that had a huge presence in our lives, the ones we are most thankful for. So here’s one of mine (because like potato chips, you can’t just have one):
I love Little Women and read it several times when I was younger. I can’t pinpoint exactly why I liked it so much, maybe it was the whole sister thing (I have two of my own). Or maybe it was because I could see a bit of myself in all of the March women.
Which is why I am excited over Lauren Baratz-Logsted‘s new book coming out next week:
Emily gets transported into the 1860s world of the March family.
Magic, time travel and no sharks on the English plains.
But if you’re now longing for a book featuring a shark, then here’s a safe one:
Happy reading and remember: steer clear of golf course ponds–they’re not all just filled with golf balls.
