So I'm totally excited about this contest today! I'm giving away 4 Books instead of the three that I posted yesterday! THEY are: Along for the Ride, Sarah Dessen Strange Angels, Lili St. Crow Unclaimed Heart, Kim Wilkins Waiting on You, Susane Colasanti These ARE extremely sought after books, so I've upped the stakes a bit. I want to read (between 500-750 words)what your favorite book is and who is your favorite author. You can post here or you can e-mail me at If you e-mail me, YOU MUST post HERE to let me know. I'm the only one judging these small essays so don't be afraid. I'm not looking for brilliant pieces of work, just something from your heart. If it doesn't hit the word count, don't worry, mine didn't either, that is a guideline. Just have fun and think about what book you consider your favorite. Like I mentioned yesterday, unfortunately this contest is open to the US and CA. Please have fun with this contest. And to get it started! My favorite books of all time have to be the "Little House" series. I adored Pa and Ma and Mary and Laura and Carrie and what life was like in Frontier America. The hard winters they endured in Milwaukee the move to Missouri. Laura meeting and falling in love with Almonzo Wilder. I know there are so many great authors out there, but I'd have to say Laura Ingalls Wilder is by far my favorite. Her life was so richly depicted in books and she lives such a long life (she died at age 90). She wrote from the heart and told her story the only way she could with truth. I was also a HUGE fan of the show that was on in the '70s. Even now, when I catch it on cable, I have to stop and watch because it reminds me of being bathed, in my jammies, sitting on the couch and watching it with my mom. That was the routine EVERY Monday night! I've tried to read them to Rebecca, but she never got into it, so I'm sharing them with Lily and she really enjoys them. I encourage everyone to try out Laura Ingalls Wilder. She is an American gem. This contest will close on May 3, 2009
