  4. What a great giveaway. I’ve never heard of buy a friend a book week until now, and I think it’s a fantastic idea. I’d love to win a book!

  5. Give a Friend a Book week is a great idea. I haven’t given anyone a book this week, but I buy books for my mom all the time.

  6. Great idea. get kids to read my favorite book of all time was “Swiss Family Robinson”

  7. I’d buy my friend Lisa a book, although I don’t know if there are any she hasn’t read!

  8. I would love to win a book for my daughter. She loves the soup for the teenage soul books, they really help her deal with things that go on at school.

  9. Would love to be able to give a book to my son. We visit the library a lot as things are tight, but there’s nothing like holding a book of your own.

  10. I’ve loved to read since I was a child. I remember being in the library reading club each summer when I was little and one year there was another girl and we were neck and neck to have the most books read, and we read during the entire party to try and beat the other. She found smaller books and beat me by ONE book! But they still put both our pictures in the paper as top readers and gave BOTH of us a prize.

  11. What a neat contest! I love to read and so do my kids — we go through a lot of books πŸ™‚

  12. I have three boxes of books to take to the library and donate. I’ve donated thousands in the last couple years! More bookshelf space for me, and lots of people can enjoy them!

  13. Would love to win this giveaway! Thanks… IN fact, I just bought 2 new books at walmart the other day. I really want to start reading again!! Thanks

  14. Thanks for having this giveaway! I would love to win a book!

  19. Love giving away books — especially to those I know will appreciate them and then pass them on!

  20. This is a great idea. And with books being printed in both hardback and paperback almost at the same time, there is a really wide availability of titles!

  21. Thank you for the chance to enter. I would like to get a book for the handicapped lady down the block from me.
    She is hmebound and likes to read.

  22. Nice contest.

    Of course the problem for the winner is picking WHICH book…. Good problem to have.

  23. Great idea! In the two weeks I have gotten two books for my daughter, and one for my husband.

    Love to read!

  24. after starting to work @ the library, I began to read again, my love of books never ends!

  25. I love reading, but as I age the eyes are making it alittle harder. I am thankful for reading glasses.

  26. I’ve really started getting into reading again. With a newborn it wasn’t easy to read, I’d have to take a break every few pages and so I stopped reading, But now that she’s almost 2 I picked it back up again, What have I been missing for the past year and a half! Thanks for the opportunity!

  27. This is a great idea. I love buying books as gifts for people, especially when I find one I know they will LOVE. Thanks for the giveaway!

  28. Just bought my mom a book, she was so excited, she was so excited about it she in turn went and bought her neighbor the same book!
