This year the Books Are Great Gifts campaign returns with LitChat’s post, A Time to Give:
“Tying into our BOOKS ARE GREAT GIFTS campaign, we’re adopting a charity to support for the holidays. Reading Tree is a non-profit organization that collects books–new and used–for schools all over the world.”
Please read the entire post to learn how you can make a difference, not just by giving books, but by adding this “twibbon” to your Twitter profile. It’s simple, festive and more than worthy; although, to be honest, this Fairy Godmother cannot imagine the holidays without the gifting of books!
~ Now how would you like another chance to win a copy of Wendy Nelson Tokunaga’s Love in Translation? As one of the authors featured on Author Buzz this week, Wendy will be giving away five signed copies of her novel. To enter send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with READER BUZZ in the subject header.
~ And LIFETIME has announced the date of Sunday, February 7, 2010 for the premiere airing of “Sins of the Mother,” the movie based on Carleen Brice’s debut novel, Orange Mint and Honey. Be sure to mark your calendars!
