Want Free Books??????

Everyone knows I LOVE to read. When my friends come over they always leave with a stack of books and I always tell them the same thing, "You can take them-just don't bring them back!" I love when books get passed around over and over and over again until they are dog eared, well loved and missing covers.

I am fortunate to get a TON of free books. By my bed right now are more than 70 unread just waiting for the calender to change to January so they can officially make next year's list. I like to read in my comfort zone, out of my comfort zone, fiction, non-fiction, christian, secular, and the cereal box! :)

So, to celebrate another great year of reading I'm giving away my top 10 books. I'll post the list later this week. Trust me-it's a great group of books!

Wanna win? All you have to do is send an email to asburyspeech@yahoo.com or comment right here on the blog and tell me why you LOVE to read. It doesn't matter what you say, the winner will be chosen randomly, I just want to hear why you like to read :)

Good luck and Happy Reading!!

I'm here! I've always loved to read. To learn. To be transported to new places. To be inspired. To be nudged to The Book.

I love to read. It gives me a chance to get away from everything chaotic and enjoy myself. It's "mommy" time!

I love to read and always read about three books at a time--usually one bestseller, one Christian book either fiction or non-fiction and one book that my husband and I read together (actually I read and he listens). Sometimes I have another that I keep at my desk at work to read during my lunch break. I like to read to escape, to learn something new, to ponder new ideas and to become a better person.

I honestly used to dislike reading very much and had to train myself to be still and quiet enough to read! Now, I will have 2-3 books going at the same time. My favorites are autobiographies, anything that will strengthen my walk with Jesus, and some fiction.

I lvoe to read for the same reason I love to write... I enjoy the sight and sound and flavour of words!

I've got a serious addiction to books--so please count me in.
Next year, I need to do the very same thing, my book stack is nearly sky high even with a Kindle.
I love that you read the cereal box. So do I :-)
PS: My word verification code was "readule". Too funny!

My love for books stems from my earliest childhood as my mother fostered the love of reading in me as she did not learn to read until she was in her 20's. We had a extensive library and even though some were over my head I would spend hours perched in a tree in summer or perched on my bed. I even read by flashlight when I should have been sleeping. Reading for me is a stress buster and I read everything including the cereal box !

I'm your brother so i think the love of reading comes in the family although it came later for me. Enter me in the contest! I want some new books baby!

I honestly don't want to win these books by the way... I just wanted the copy of Sticky Jesus

I would love to be entered into your giveaway!

My love for books started when I was very young. I can remember spending my summers lying on a blanket outside under a tree with a stack of books beside me. It was my little place of peace each summer, and for a shy little girl, it brought me much comfort. I have been an avid reader ever since. (:

I love to read because I love how words can be used to create pictures in your mind...

I love to read because it gives me some quiet time. I can be with myself in solitude to explore, inquire and be creative.
