Holiday Free Book Friday #1


We had a little–as in a LITTLE–snow last night but it was SO EXCITING. No matter how light the snow is, a child can and will scrape all the way across the lawn to make a snowball. Then lick it. Ewww! Does she look demented in this photo or what? She’s scaring me.

And now………

Holiday Free Book Fridays! All month long! Autographed books to give away as gifts signed to the recipient of your choice, or yours to keep.:lol:

Tonight I’m going shopping with Industrial Strength Serious Professional Shopper Cousin Sheryl. On Monday, I’ll be posting her Holiday Industrial Strength Shopping Guide (so don’t miss it). For now, tell me what three things on the following list go shopping with Sheryl?

1) toilet seat covers to keep it clean
2) itemized gift list with receipt holder
3) mace for safe parking
4) fanny pack to keep hands free
5) rooster repellant (just in case)

One winner from among those who post the correct 3 items will receive the following autographed books: Undeniable, Every Breath You Take, and Cole Dempsey’s Back In Town!

Okay, start guessing! And come back Monday for the answers and the winner not to mention the Holiday Industrial Strength Shopping Guide with a photo of Sheryl in her Industrial Strength Shopping Gear!

  33. Robyn says:

    2,3 and 4.

  34. kacey says:

    1, 2 & 4. But really, where is the guy to schlep the packages? Shouldn’t that be on the list too. Unrelated guy though, so he won’t critique what she buys…:mrgreen:

  35. Trish says:

    2, 3, and 4, but I love the Rooster Repellent. They can be mean little buggers.

  36. Sanjay says:

    2) itemized gift list with receipt holder

    4) fanny pack to keep hands free
