Give Books Giveaway

  UPDATE! Random.org selected #247, Mandie of Moxie Mandie. Congrats, Mandie! - - - A few weeks ago, my publisher Chronicle Books approached me about participating in their holiday Give Books campaign and giveaway. Since I love books, give books and love the feel and smell of paper (doesn't everyone?), it was a no brainer. Plus I figured one of you would love to win all ten books I selected. Ten? Yes ten! One winner will receive the same ten books I chose to keep or give this holiday season. I have to admit, receiving a huge, heavy box full of books was pretty nice. Here are the giveaway details: THE BOOKS Crepes The Cheesemonger's Kitchen The Country Cooking of France Miette Tartine Chicken and Egg, Ten Beautiful Prints Over and Under the Snow A Long Piece of String Pantone: The Twentieth Century in Color Decorate Workshop HOW TO ENTER TO WIN THEM There are three ways to win: 1. Leave a comment on this post for one entry. 2. Click here and share the Little Brown Pen contest post on Facebook for a second entry. 3. Pin the contest on Pinterest (my pin is here) for a third entry. You may enter three times, but be sure to leave a separate comment for each entry. The contest runs from today through Friday, November 3o. A winner will be selected at random, using random.org. BONUS! Now through December 31, enjoy 30% off + free ground shipping on all holiday orders at ChronicleBooks.com. Enter discount code GIVEBOOKS at checkout. And be sure to check out the other participants on the Chronicle Blog. More books and more chances to win. Good luck! -Nichole The Give Books graphic was designed by the talented Julia Rothman.

You see, this is one of those times when a Kindle just won’t do…… what beautiful books.

I mean, this is the ultimate giveaway! So many books in this list that I would love and others I’d give to family. Here’s hoping!

Although I love my Kindle for reading novels, nothing would EVER persuade me to look at any of the above books in any other way than in their original paper form. There is nothing like the smell of a newly opened book… :0)
