☼Bookish pam in Virginia☼  (ren_t) And here's my own contest. I post more as I can.


This was one of my fave books in 2008.

It's a book for Tweeners -- age 9 to 13.

[OKay, and for moms too. I read it for myself, and then my husband read it to our 8 year old. Even hubby liked it.:]

You can find my review here.

And Read a bit of it at Amazon ... HERE.

☼Bookish pam in Virginia☼  (ren_t) Hi guys and guyettes. I was posting the book contests that I ran across on my fave discussion groups, but it's got to be too much work (sorry I'm lazy and the kids... well, you know how it is). In any... because there are so many book give-aways out there I've centralized where I'm putting them. Actually added a new page to my blog just for us.


note: currently there are like 10 different giveaways. Gotta love free books!

☼Bookish pam in Virginia☼  (ren_t) I'm doing my second book giveaway on my History blog. The book is "NOW THE DRUM OF WAR: Walt Whitman and His Brothers in the Civil War".

I don't know if anyone here is interested in Whitman, his poetry, and family, but I thought I'd check. Personally, I found this book to be a good read. So much so that I got up the nerve to write the publisher. To my amazement they sent 2 lovely hardbacks to give away.

I didn't know anything about the Whitman Family before reading this book. Turns out that each one of them was pretty unique in their own way. Brother George was a Civil War hero. Walt, of course, was a writer/editor and volunteer in the hospitals during the war. And Mother Whitman, it turns out, was a very strong character in her own right. She'd have to be to handle all the family tragedies.

In any case, if you're interested drop on by and say high.

Thanks to PBS I am having my 3rd Give-Away

This time 2 copies of ...

WWII Behind Closed Doors - Stalin, The Nazis and The West

Hardcover: 448 pages
Publisher: Pantheon (April 28, 2009)
ISBN-10: 030737730X
ISBN-13: 978-0307377302

This book ties in with the wonderful BBC/PBS series which I highly recommend. Absolutely fascinating, it discloses many of the previously secret documents that where released from various communist countries in recent years.
