It is not every day you get an email from one of your favorite authors asking you if you want to give away a copy of her new book. In fact, I don't think it has ever happened to me before. But Jenni Holm, author of the GRA selected book The Fourteenth Goldfish did just that since not only is she super excited about the release of the book (we have been counting down the days), but also being a Global Read Aloud author!
"I'm so touched that THE FOURTEENTH GOLDFISH" was chosen as a read-aloud. Part of the reason I am a writer today was because my second grade teacher read aloud to my class. To this day, when I think of THE BOXCAR CHILDREN, I think of my teacher. She sparked a lifetime love of reading in me--and a lot of other children. Reading aloud makes a difference."
But here is the best part, she is not just giving away one copy, not even two. She is letting me give away 15 hardcover copies and 5 audio books! Wow! Do indicate whether you would prefer one or the other in your entry, but know that it is not guaranteed. The winners will be drawn randomly.
So what do you need to do to enter? Leave a comment, with your email or other way of getting a hold of you, telling us why you joined the Global Read Aloud. I am telling you, you will love this book for the discussions it will create and the connections you will make. The contest ends Friday night, the 29th at 9 PM CST.
So for now happy reading and happy book birthday to you!
