FREE BOOK!! The Wednesday Sisters

I have several books on my night stand that I've read. I'm not a book collector. My house is too small. I like to pass on books I have.

So today is your lucky day! 

Just leave me a comment telling me either 

what book you are reading or 
what your favorite book is

And I'll enter you in a drawing to win this book.

This book has been read, and is not brand new, but it's in great shape and has lots of reading left in it.

A bit about the story:

from Goodreads

Friendship, loyalty, and love lie at the heart of Meg Waite Clayton’s beautifully written, poignant, and sweeping novel of five women who, over the course of four decades, come to redefine what it means to be family.

For thirty-five years, Frankie, Linda, Kath, Brett, and Ally have met every Wednesday at the park near their homes in Palo Alto, California. Defined when they first meet by what their husbands do, the young homemakers and mothers are far removed from the Summer of Love that has enveloped most of the Bay Area in 1967. These “Wednesday Sisters” seem to have little in common: Frankie is a timid transplant from Chicago, brutally blunt Linda is a remarkable athlete, Kath is a Kentucky debutante, quiet Ally has a secret, and quirky, ultra-intelligent Brett wears little white gloves with her miniskirts. But they are bonded by a shared love of both literature–Fitzgerald, Eliot, Austen, du Maurier, Plath, and Dickens–and the Miss America Pageant, which they watch together every year.

As the years roll on and their children grow, the quintet forms a writers circle to express their hopes and dreams through poems, stories, and, eventually, books. Along the way, they experience history in the making: Vietnam, the race for the moon, and a women’s movement that challenges everything they have ever thought about themselves, while at the same time supporting one another through changes in their personal lives brought on by infidelity, longing, illness, failure, and success.

Humorous and moving, The Wednesday Sisters is a literary feast for book lovers that earns a place among those popular works that honor the joyful, mysterious, unbreakable bonds between friends

I'll pick a winner next Friday (May 20th)! You have until then to enter!

I stumbled upon your blog a while back and thoroughly enjoy reading it. I'm a high school English teacher from South Dakota. It's fun keeping up on what's going on "on the coast!" Anyhow, I too own this book and LOVE it! Have you read the second that Meg Waite Clayton came out with earlier this spring? I haven't yet, but plan to. Thanks for blogging -- I really do enjoy your updates! Have a nice weekend!

Oh, I'd love to win this one! :) I have it on hold at the library for me. Currently I am reading Fried Eggs with Chopsticks.

I'm reading So Much Pretty right now. It looks like it will be good when I figure out what is going on! It's a sinister mystery of some sort...still early. I just read Three Cups of Tea which was really good!
