Well friends, I have a confession to make …
*whispering* I started listening to Christmas music back in October …
*dodges rotten fruit*
Terrible, I know, but honestly, one month is not enough time to enjoy all the Christmas music that’s out there! Still, now that it is officially December, I can come out of hiding and blare my Christmas music for all to hear.
I don’t know about you, but the Christmas season is my favorite time of year. For many reasons. It’s a time to remember the coming of the Messiah. It’s a time to dwell on the beauty of the message delivered to the shepherds on the hilltop above Bethlehem, that God was offering a way of peace to all mankind. And that offer of peace still stands, not only through the “tranquility” of the nativity scene (that will soon grace so many houses), but through the shed blood and gaping wounds of the God-man on the cross at Easter.
Christmas is a time to remember, and it’s a time to love and to give and to celebrate with family and friends.
Time for another confession. I really do enjoy gift giving. It’s not so much about finding the “perfect” gift as it is about spending the time thinking about my family and friends and trying to find something that will show them that I know and care about them.
So … I would like to give a gift to you guys, and there’s no better gift than the gift of books, so we’re having a book giveaway!
“Books make great gifts because they have whole worlds inside of them. And it’s much cheaper to buy somebody a book than it is to buy them the whole world!”
– Neil Gaiman
Now because Christmas is a time to focus on giving to others, for this giveaway, you get to nominate a friend to be entered in the giveaway alongside you! There are no strings attached. You don’t have to share or follow or like anything. (Although, the more people who share the giveaway, the more people we’ll reach. And if we reach more and more people, the number of gifts might increase.)
At the end of the week, I will draw three pairs of winners, and give both the winner and their nominated friend a copy of Orphan’s Song or Songkeeper. Winner’s choice. And guess what guys … I’ll be giving away Orphan’s Song copies with the new cover!!!
How do you enter? It’s simple! Visit my Facebook page and leave a comment on the pinned giveaway post with your friend’s name. The winners will be selected and announced after December 12th. What have you got to lose?
And just for funness sake (I firmly believe that funness should be considered a word, if it isn’t already), what book are you most hoping to find under the tree this Christmas! Share in the comments!
