Mammy Jane Giveaway

Mar
13


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.

    I would love to read the book. And I think the idea of passing it on is excellent. People should do that more often.

    I went looking for the book after you posted about it and it was too expensive for me to buy a copy. I guess it’s out of print? So, YES!!! I would just love to read it. I would read it and pass it along, too. Maybe we could make a list comprised of the people in the comments section and then one person could read the book and pass it along to the next person in line? Maybe? I haven’t read all the comments, so I don’t know if anyone else suggested this. Anyhoo…I’d just love to read it and pass it along again. :)

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
