3-Book Giveaway!

Love books? Love to win prizes? This blog's for you! I'm giving away THREE books of different genres. Leave a comment at the end of this post, stating which book or books you'd like to win, and why. Please leave your email address within the comment.

You'll receive an extra entry for each time you put the link on your own blog, tweet about it, Stumbleupon, post on Facebook or Google plus, or pin on Pinterest. Please come back and let me know what you did, so I can give you the correct amount of extra entries.

1. Knowing: A Series of Gifts, Young Adult Novel

Sixteen-year-old Ember Matthews is tired of being the person everyone else wants her to be. Although she is nervous about moving to a small town and leaving behind the comforts of her old life, Ember welcomes the opportunity to escape the mistakes and pain of her past. Ember truly wants to change, but when faced with temptation and peer pressure from some new friends, she finds herself slipping into the same old patterns. As she reconnects with God, Ember begins to realize that she is no ordinary teenager. She sees things that no one else sees, and knows things she has no business knowing. Will Ember learn to use her God-given gift, or will the burden of her calling be too much for her to carry?

2. Emerson the Magnificent, All Ages, Novella

"What a delight... though I thought it unlikely that a bicycle could do much to unravel some complicated issues, my skepticism was outvoted. It really doesn't matter how old you are, Emerson talks to you. Dwight Ritter's illustrations made me smile as much as his story warmed my heart. Emerson's message challenged my thinking, then threw me a lifeline, reeled me in and rescued me. Get it! Read it! Give it to everyone you know!" -- 5-star review by Pat Lindquist





                                             3. Dying to Meet Him, non-fiction, devotional

"Like the author, I have always been frightened by the thought of death. I truly enjoyed reading this book - it was a quick read and contains much insight and humor which left me feeling much less fearful about death. I so enjoyed the funny stories...It had never occurred to me that there could be humorous moments "on the job" for funeral directors, but, of course, there would be as there is with any occupation. I highly recommend this book, whether for an individual or for a book club or Bible class (has discussion questions at the end of each chapter). You will not regret reading it." -- 5-star review by Trina Riddle

 Contest ends Midnight, October 21, 2012. I will post the winners on Tuesday, October 23. Thanks for entering, and spreading the word! I hope you win!
