Today is the anniversary of the day I began Cookie's Book Club! What a year it's been!
I've met some superb authors and I have discovered some fantastic reads that I would not have if it weren't for my Kindle and this blog. I have ventured into the world of independent authors, and have found some really good books that I would not otherwise have ever heard of.
In celebration of my Blogiversary, and as a small token of my appreciation for you, my friends and followers, I am giving away one of my favourite books from this past year!
Warm up by the fire with one of these romantic reads:
The Notebook ~ Nicholas Sparks From Amazon.com: Every so often a love story so captures our hearts that it becomes more than a story-it becomes an experience to remember forever. The Notebook is such a book. It is a celebration of how passion can be ageless and timeless, a tale that moves us to laughter and tears and makes us believe in true love all over again... At thirty-one, Noah Calhoun, back in coastal North Carolina after World War II, is haunted by images of the girl he lost more than a decade earlier. At twenty-nine, socialite Allie Nelson is about to marry a wealthy lawyer, but she cannot stop thinking about the boy who long ago stole her heart. Thus begins the story of a love so enduring and deep it can turn tragedy into triumph, and may even have the power to create a miracle...
Sean Marcum is driven to find the meaning of his mother's swan song. The last words she wrote in her journal were, "Fuller Brush Man". She always communicated life's most important lessons via riddles, and he is convinced this is her finale. Sadly, Sean was never good at solving riddles, and his quest turns into an obsession, nearly costing him his marriage, and his life.
