That being said, I had to pick a winner... Before my daughter left for school I had her pick a number between 1 and 100. She said 44. Smart girl because my favorite number is 4. :) I knew I had well over 200 emails. So I shut my eyes and scrolled up and down a bit. Then randomly chose a place to stop. From that point, I counted down 44 and landed on... Judy Fritz. You've won! I sent her an email so she should know whenever she gets a chance to check in. I'll send the books out to her tomorrow.
Thanks again for participating and I'll try to do another giveaway for you soon!
It's last minute and you still have people on your list. What do you do?!
As an author, I often talk to people about books. One of the comments I hear is "Oo, I want to read that, but I just don't have time to read!" I get it! I really do! It takes me a month or longer to read a book. When do I read with two daughters and a job? Well, it's not in long segments. My youngest watches about 10 minutes of videos before naptime and bed. I sit and snuggle her with one arm and use my other to read. That's it! Sometimes I get a little in while I dry my hair. It's not ideal, but it's what I have for now.
But think about the rest of the day. Do you spend long chunks or even short amounts of time in the car? I do! We live ten minutes from the school and about 20 or more from other places. We drive often. And my book addiction doesn't leave me when I'm driving so... what's a girl to do?!
Audio books!!! I used to get them on tape, then CD, now you can get them and put them on your phone. Some people can connect that to your car or just listen with ear buds. I usually don't unless it's a long trip, but I love that it's an option and when I have one, I find that I don't want to "put it down" to drive, so I listen away!
The good news is that I actually have TWO books in audio format. Accept this Dandelion and Mamarazzi. Both books are on audible through amazon. Here's the great think about audible. When you sign up, you get a free book! And you can cancel the program before you have to pay if you cancel within 30 days. So sign up yourself or give someone the gift of audio books for a year or whatever. When you grab your free book, get Accept this Dandelion or Mamarazzi! Cancel if you want to after that or enjoy grabbing other books and listening to them in the car, doing chores around the house, or anytime in between. Life's short! It's hard to get all those books in, I understand! I'm in the same boat. We do what we can!

Merry Christmas again and drive and travel carefully if you're hitting the road or skies. We'll chat next year, okay? :)
