Summer Reads Giveaway Hop

5 Jul

I Am A Reader, Not A Writer and Rex Robot Reviews are hosting the Summer Reads Giveaway.  This giveaway runs July 6 – 11.  Please check out the blogs giving away books and bookish stuff HERE.

I am giving away a copy of Denise Hunter’s Surrender Baya romantic novel in a seaside setting.  To enter, just leave me a comment about your favorite place to read — bathtub, porch swing, etc.  The winner will be chosen no later than July 13.  Good Luck!

Surrender Bay by Denise Hunter.  Samantha Owen’s estranged stepfather has died, leaving her his cottage in Nantucket — a place she left years ago, never planning to return. As a single mom, Samantha can’t afford to pass up on a financial windfall like ocean-front property. So she travels home to fix up the house and sell it . . . never suspecting that Landon Reed still lives two doors down.

A heart-tugging tale of shattered trust and enduring love all in a romantic, seaside setting.

    My favorite place to read is my bed. Kids are asleep so is the hubby and it’s nice and quite and peaceful. In the summer by the pool.

    Thanks for the great giveaway!

    Your site is lovely–and useful! I’m a Christian author who is researching great places to seek a review for my book, Titanic: Legacy of Betrayal, co-authored by Kathleen E. Kovach. I’d love to talk with you about this, but couldn’t find direct contact information on your site. If you’d like to learn more about our book, check out the reviews on Amazon. We’ve been pleased with the response of our readers: You can also check out I hope to hear from you!

    I’d love to read Surrender Bay. My favorite place to read is lying on my back in bed before I go to sleep at night playing relaxing music and enjoying the story. Eventually I become so sleepy that I turn out the light and go on to sleep.

    Ahhhh YES! I am so glad you are giving this book away! About a year ago I read “The Convenient Groom” and LOVED it! I have been wanting to read the rest of the Nantucket books.

    Right now my favorite place to read would be my front porch! I have a Queen Anne Victorian house with a big wrap around porch. I love sitting out there first thing in the morning (like I did this morning) with a cup of coffee and a blanket around my shoulders. Or in the evening with a glass of wine. I just blogged about this on the 4th –
    Stop by and see me. I am putting your blog in my favs folder.

    I love to ready absolutely anywhere that I can get a quiet moment!

  8. Sue Wendt July 6, 2012 at 9:32 am #

    My favorite place to read would be whereever I am when I have a great book. Since the book becomes the world of the moment, where I am doesn’t really matter. Of course, reading from the hammock at the edge of the lake is a good starting place.
