Giveaway: The Paper Bag Christmas

November 17, 2009

The Paper Bag Christmas

Last year, I was lucky enough to read and review The Paper Bag Christmas by Kevin Alan Milne.   I said:

At 150 pages, this is a quick read, but it’s so very good.  It will bring tears to your eyes and a smile to your face.  It will make you stop to think about the Christmas spirit and what you’d really like this holiday season.  This is a wonderful book to share with your family and friends.

This year, thanks to Miriam at Hachette Books, and in honor of The Twelve Days of Christmas Cookies, I’m lucky enough to be able to offer a copy of this book to one lucky reader.  To enter to win,  simply leave a comment on this post.  Contest is open to US and Canadian residents only (no PO Boxes, please).  I will use to determine the winner.  Contest ends at midnight EST, Friday November 27, 2009.  Winner will be announced on Saturday, November 28, 2009.
