Kathy, a reader here, bought the Mammy Jane book after I posted about it. Knowing others wished to read the book but couldn’t buy it, now that she’s finished reading her copy, she wants to give it away to one of you. (It’s a like-new copy, only read once.)

If you want it, let me know! This giveaway will be open till midnight tonight (March 13). I’ll update this post with the winner tomorrow!

UPDATE 03/14/11: The winning comment number, drawn by random.org, is #12, Theresa Winstead. Email me at CITRgiveaways(at)yahoo.com with your address for shipping!

THIS GIVEAWAY IS CLOSED TO ENTRY.
