Sharing the Love of Books

Short posting today. I attended my niece's wedding over the weekend. I'll share some of the pictures and fun moments later on in the week. 

For a while I'm going share my love of books with you and once a week giveaway a book. Here's all you have to do:

1) become a follower of my blog

2) leave a comment at least once during the week.

If you do those two things your name will go into the hat for that week's book drawing. I'll announce the winner on the following Monday. (This week's winner will be announced August 8th.)

I thought I'd start off with this little gem, Just Hand Over the Chocolate and No One Will Get Hurt by Karen Scalf Linamen. I love chocolate. Whenever I travel, have a stressful day, or when I just need a boast, I reach for chocolate. If you have the same need this is the book for you! 

Here's part of the back cover blurb:

Does chocolate call your name when you feel stressed, overwhelmed, or a little down? If it does, then you need Karen Linaman's fifteen low-calorie ways to lift your spirits and pull you out of the dumps.

Wielding wit and wisdom, the author of Pillow Talk and Happily Ever After has created an outrageously funny "joy enhancement" manual for women. Combining humorous observations with road-tested insights and solutions, she offers up a delightful look at women's emotional, physical, and spiritual health.
(I had to take the italics off of some of the above text or it was gibberish. I chalk it up to Internet gremlins.)

When do you reach for chocolate? When you're stressed? Or just for fun? AND what's your favorite chocolate bar? 



  1. I reach for chocolate no matter how I'm feeling! Snickers, Kit Kat, and Take 5 are my favorite candy bars. I prefer milk chocolate over dark. But really, I'm not picky when it comes to chocolate and will eat it all!

    I really really like your blog's new look, Kathi. It's so clean and bright!

  2. I'm glad you like the new look. :)

    I'm with you when it comes to chocolate. Love, love, love it.

  3. Chocolate? Did someone mention chocolate? I love eating it and reading about it. :)

    Please enter me in the giveaway. I'm a Follower.

  4. I try not to reach for chocolate. Just to be safe, I don't have any in the house. Except at Christmas.

  5. Susan,
    You're on the list! And I know what you mean, anything chocolate works for me. :)

  6. Helen:
    I know what you mean. One piece can lead to another and before I know it I've eaten the entire box. I keep mine in the freezer, which seems to help. :)
