The Post About $25 Barnes & Noble Giveaway

I love a good read. Especially if you pair it with a warm day and no laundry taunting you from the other room. In three weeks, I'll get my life back for a short season and I'm looking for books to add to my wishlist. But don't think about what I might like, suggest your favorites and I'm sure I'll find a few to hunker down with...

I'll reward one random rabbit chaser with a $25 gift card to
Barnes & Noble which you can use online or at a store near you! And if you don't read, think of it as a great wedding, graduation, or father's day gift...

  4. "The Way Things Ought to Be." Rush Limbaugh. All seriousness. One of the most eloquent non-religious arguments for the Pro-Life movement I have read. And his suggestion for an All PMS brigade of Marines is one of the best ideas ever.

  5. anything by ann rule i love true crime

    ReplyDelete
  6. One of the best books I've read in a long time is "The Book of Bright Ideas" by Sandra Kring. I highly recommend it to everyone.

  8. One book?!? Seriously? I'm leaving three :o) I just finished Willow by Julia Hoban, it's YA, but it's really really great, even for adults. One that's about to drop (7.7.09) that I'm in love with is Eyes Like Stars by Lisa Mantchev... keep your eyes open for this one! And I love The Morganville Vampires series by Rachel Caine.

  18. Part of me thinks I really shouldn't have to suggest anything - or maybe I should just get extra points for recommending such amazing books all the time.

    I just finished 'A Prayer for Owen Meany' by Johnathan Irving and it was excellent.

    I also suggest anything written by Neil Gaiman. I'm in such a Gaiman rut right now. It's lovely.

  26. and my book is...(drumroll please

    "The Courageous Follower" by Ira Chaleff. Honestly. Ironic because of all the following I do with Jamie's Rabbits.

    But seriously, this book defined the way I view, think, and act in the boss/employee relationship. It is one of my favorite books. I read it in college, and actually started rereading it last night.

    ReplyDelete
  27. My favorite book is, My Sisters Keeper, by Jodi Picoult (any of her books are great!)

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  37. The Stand by Stephen King, or the Dune series by Frank Herbert- an awesome series story wise, not so great writing wise.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Fates worse than death, by Kurt Vonnegut. Interesting and funny, but without a huge complicated plot.(A huge plus when you haven't slept through the nght in about a year and a half...)
    iluvchrisnlevi@aol.com

    ReplyDelete
  39. My recommendation is not a book, but a series. I love the Janet Evanovich series with Stephanie Plum, including the between the lines books. Great, light reading.

    ReplyDelete
  40. The Radical Cross by A.W. Tozer

    ReplyDelete
  41. I have many, many favorites. If your'e looking for something chick lit like the Undead series by Mary janice davidson. Betsy, her main character gets turned into a vamp on her 30th birthday. Hilariousness ensues. She also shares your passion for shoes & handbags. I stalk Jamie's rabbits and i think I am on twitter too. I forget to check it :(

    ReplyDelete
  42. I finally got a chance to read the Widow of the South by Robert Hicks and thought it was very good.

  45. Evidence Not Seen - by Darlene Deibler Rose

    ReplyDelete
  46. I truly love the book Redeeming Love. Also I like anything written by Nicholas Sparks even though most of his books end up kinda sad.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Okay, one of my favs from this past year has to be "Agnes and the Hitman" by Jennifer Crusie and Bob Mayer. If you like your heroine to wear red glasses and prefer an iron skillet as her weapon of choice then this is the book for you. ***Warning- best not to drink anything while reading as you will probably lose it through your nose as this book is too funny.

    ReplyDelete
  48. My favorite type of book is true crime,with that being said my fave is the strager beside me by ann rule

    ahdrad2932(at)msn(dot)com
