Welcome to all the Got Books? event visitors and a special hello to my regular readers. I'm Janelle, and this is my Brimful Curiosities blog. Sometimes children's books...sometimes not - that pretty much sums it up for those not familiar with my little corner of the blog world. We read a lot of children's books in our home. Some of those books we review. Sometimes we do crafts. And once and awhile at night, when all is still and quiet, I read a lot of everything else.
So, here's the deal. This summer has been far busier than I expected. With last minute vacations, all the summer activities and children that want to spend every last minute of the day outdoors, I haven't had as much time for blogging or reading. I've encountered difficulties trying to find the time just to post my weekly Full to the Brim Children's Book Giveaway posts (by the way, if you like giveaways, be sure to check them out). That means I have a stack of books that I'm hoping to review soon and many more in the to-be-read pile. And, to top it off, my list of want-to-reads grows larger every day as I read all those awesome reviews out there. I couldn't decide what to giveaway for this event or what book(s) I wanted to highlight, so I'm keeping it simple and leaving that decision up to you.
For the Got Books event, I am giving away a children's or YA book of your choice $20 or under from Amazon.com. (Winner specifies their choice of book after contest ends.) But to enter for your chance, you must answer the following question:
We have about a month left of summer before school starts. What new book (published in 2010) should my young children and I read together before our summer vacation ends? Or, what new 2010 book would you recommend I read during one of my late night, quiet moments sans children?
To enter, leave a comment with your book suggestion.
