Summer Reading Giveway and BAT's PicksPart of: Literati
I bought Real Simple the other day for their great organizational tips. Yep, I'm trying to get more organized. Did you know that I've been typing up my trip packing lists? This also helps if the airline loses your luggage.
Real Simple had a section where famous authors named some great books for summer reading. None of these books seemed like beach or pool reading, so I've come up with my own shortlist. But even better than my list is this giveaway. Three lucky readers will win New York Times bestselling author Emily Giffiin's newest book, Love the One You're With that poses the questions: "How do you know if you’ve found the one? Can you really love the one you’re with when you can’t forget the one who got away?" But you'll also receive her other popular books, Something Borrowed, Something Blue, and Baby Proof. How often do you finish reading a book and then want to read everything else by the same author? This fabulous Giveaway ends Friday, June 13 @ 6 pm PST.
