Traveling on...

I finished the advanced copy of Lisa Winegate's " The Prayer Box" today so now it is time to package it up and send it to the next reader. I consider a good book a friend, so I have to admit, I'm just a little bit sad to let it go.  I'm use to keeping my books on a shelf where I can see them and revisit when I want. 
But it has a new adventure and this book is so delightful I could never keep it to myself. 
Here is the synopsis printed on the back

And here is the note I wrote within the pages (gasp)! I know writing in a book felt very wrong, but she told us to!
This was Such a great experience and unique opportunity for someone who loves to read and adores this author! This book comes out in September. Please watch for it, I don't think you will be disappointed!

Look what came in the mail!

Today I received an ADVANCED copy of my favorite author, Lisa Winegate's latest book "The Prayer Box"! I did a jig all the way up the sidewalk, in my haste tripped over the dog getting through the door, then broke two nails opening the package...I'm excited as if I won the lottery (ummm okay maybe not the lottery)!
How did I manage to get an advanced copy? To my surprise I was chosen to participate in a promotional event called The Sisterhood of the Traveling Book.

 There are four of us in my circle. I read the book, make comments in the margins, then send it on to the next "sister". I'm like a kid in the candy store!
I can't wait to start reading. The story is set in one of my favorite places, the Outer Banks of North Carolina. I am suppose to take a picture of where I read the book. They are giving a surprise to the one with the most interesting, fun, etc places....give me some ideas please!
I've waiting long enough, so I'm off to read "The Prayer Box" by Lisa Winegate! I'll keep you informed!!
