Giveaway Time!

What better way to welcome in a month that promises the start of spring than having a giveaway.  As you may recall I recently told you about a book I enjoyed and was later contacted by the author offering to give an autographed copy of "Amish Peace" to one of my readers.

To enter this giveaway leave a comment telling me where your favorite spot is to curl up with a good book. Mine is on an ancient recliner/rocker in the corner of our "fun" room.

For an extra entry, post a link on your blog about this giveaway and come back and leave another comment.
The winner will be chosen on Saturday March 6th using Random Generator.

I love to sit on a soft comfortable surface when reading. But sometimes I read when I put the younger ones down for a nap. So that's usually in my rocking chair. It's made of wood, it doesn't have a cushion, but it's so comfortable (for a wooden rocking chair).

notjustlaura said...

My favourite place is the recliner sitting in the bay window of the lounge. It catches the light and I can see enough of the street to be interesting but not so much that I'm distracted!

Violet said...

My favorite place is a recliner in my bedroom, although any place I happen to be with a few moments to spare becomes a "favorite" place for my most favorite pastime.

Lynne said...

I only read when I go to bed.This is possibly due to the fact that I know there's a pair of reading glasses there.I'm not very good at keeping them safe otherwise!!!LOL!

Osage Bluff Quilter said...

Hubby and I have a double recliner in the great room, along with my Noah Ark afghan that is where I curl up.
It helps if there is a fire in the fireplace too!

Keeper of our Home said...

My favorite place to read would be anywhere quiet. So that would be either in the bedroom or sitting out on the back porch with a lemonade or glass of iced tea in hand and my book in the other.

I am so thrilled about this give-a-way! I LOVE reading Amish books (be it in paper form or online) I have always been facinated by their way of life and their dependence on the LORD. I admit, not everything do I agree with but there are many things that the Christian sect can glean from the Amish culture.

Thank you for allowing the LORD to use you through your blog to touch so many people. I know I am proud to say I have been one of them.

Amy Kinser said...

My oversized, fluffy recliner is where I love to read. And, I love to read all things Amish. I would love to win this book. Thanks.

Annette said...

I have two fav places to read, depending on how warm/cold it is outside. For cold days is in the kitchen with the cook stove keeping the room toasty. For warm days, it would be on the front porch.

Carrie of Farming On Faith said...

my favorite spot is a big overstuffed chair in my bedroom- pull it up close to the foot of the bed and prop my feet on the bed! I spend a lot of time on buses, though, and do most of my reading in ordinary and boring bus seats!

LDH said...

Somewhere it is quiet ~ I don't comprehend much in a busy/noisy place. So, it us usually propped up on lots of pillows on my bed.

Elizabeth-Plain and Simple said...

My favorite place to read is in the sun room, sitting in the wicker chair with my legs up on the table in front. I need the extra light the room offers since developing the "over 40" eye sight. Have a nice week.

Blessings,

My favorite place to read is in the tub while having a nice warm bubble bath.It's quiet and nobody distracts me in the bathroom. I put a board over the edges of the tub and prop my book up and I'm ready to go.

Linda said...

In the winter, I can be found reading a book while curled up in the corner of the couch with a blanket and cup of hot tea. In the summer, however, I take my books outdoors, poolside on the lounge chair, with iced tea!

Country Wings in Phoenix said...

Good Morning Sweetie...
I would so adore this book. I have to tell you my favorite place to curl up with a book, is the big overstuffed chair by the fireplace. I find myself there quite often. It has taken me to so many places and back in the last couple of years. Yes that chair was a wonderful investment. That is my favorite place.

I have signed up to follow your blog. I can't wait to see what you share next. Please stop by and say hi. I would be so honored if you signed up to follow my blog as well.

Please enter my name into your giveaway. What an honor for any one of us to win this wonderful prize. Thank you for the opportunity.

In the warmer months I like to sit on the porch and read or under a shade tree.

Kim said...

Howdy to one and all! New reader here. I'm lovin' this blog, so I'm gonna throw my hat in the ring for the giveaway. My favorite spot to read is stretched out on the porch swing on a sunny Southern summer afternoon while sipping sweet tea with lots of lemon. When it isn't nice weather out I have a window seat in front of a bay window that I favor. Good luck to everyone in the drawing!

God Bless,
Kim

Sharon said...

I like to sit out in the sunroom in my old rocker and read a good book.
When it is cold out I grab my quilt and curl up in it.
Thanks for sharing this.

nfaband said...

My favorite place to read during the summer is on our screened in porch ... I love listening to the birds and the wind chimes while I revel in a good book. However living on the East Coast I cannot sit outside during the winter, so when the air turns cold I love just curling up on my living room couch next to the heater and reading. Thanks for the opportunity to win the book, it looks wonderful.

watalulu said...

Sometimes I like to curl up on the couch and read or sit on the back porch and read and listen to the birds sing, etc.

2cats said...

I can curl up anywhere if there a book to be read. But my favorite place is my recliner in the living room that comes with a soft, warm purring cat or two.

Stone Bridge Farm said...

That is an easy one. I wait until the kids get tucked in to bed and prop my feet up in an old broken down recliner, dim the lights and crack open my book.

Christi said...

I love to curl up anywhere that is warm and quiet to read anything I can get my hands on!

Goose Hill Farm said...

What a nice giveaway!

Winter-time...anywhere there may be a sunbeam, wrapped in one of my quilts.

Summer-time...outside under a tree. Or at the lake with my feet in the water. :)

Laura Ingalls wannabe said...

I read in bed at night after I put the baby to sleep. She still sleeps in our room, so it's lights out and quiet time for me at 8:00. Booklights are convenient!

Meadow Mountain Musings said...

In the bathroom. It's one of the few places that I'm not disturbed.

Roses and Lilacs said...

I read myself to sleep in bed many nights but my favorite reading spot in an old, overstuffed chair pulled up to the window. Just outside my bird feeders hang so I can glance up and see the birds squabbling over sunflower seeds. A small table with a lamp sits close by with plenty of room for a cup of tea or hot chocolate. Ahhh, bliss.

I will read a book anywhere, but my favorite is on a blanket in the backyard on a summer morning while the kids play around me. Sometimes it is a book for me, other times I'll read aloud to the children while they play.
