You know how sometimes you get emails that are all “would your blog readers like to win a free case of Depends? Please click here to see how you can host this awesome giveaway?” I laugh a little. And then I delete the email. Because I’m fairly sure that very few of you need Depends. And if you do, I bet the last place you want to procure such a necessity is on a blog.
This giveaway is, thankfully, not for Depends, but for a book called The Middle Place by Kelly Corrigan. It’s number six on the New York Times Best Seller list right now, so you may already be familiar with it. It’s a memoir about Kelly’s experiences as a mother and her battle with cancer. I actually saw this book on the shelf at the library over the summer and almost picked it up, but as usual, I’d maxed my library card completely out (who can possibly stay under fifteen books at one time?!) and I had to pass it up.
The giveaway is being hosted by The Daily Grommet and they are hosting Kelly and her book, The Middle Place, today. You can go visit The Daily Grommet (there’s a short video interview with her) or check out the comments section over there, which Kelly is participating in.
To win, all you need to do is leave me a comment. About the book or not about the book. I’m not picky.
On Thursday, I’ll randomly select two people from the commenters and your book will be on its way. And then you’ll have something to anticipate coming in the mail. Life doesn’t get much better than that.
