What is a Blog Job, you ask…well it is a blog tour of 150 different blogs and websites. To play, you can start here, then hop over to medical mystery novelist Darden North and see what’s happening on his blog. Jog from site to site and check out the nearly 150 wonderful Blogs in the jog each a little different from the last. Many have special contests and events set up just for this day.
To see the list of participating bloggers or for more information, head over to the Blog Jog Day blog.
Now, onto today’s post:
In honor of both the Blog Jog event and Mother’s Day, I thought I’d post a short tribute to my Mom and a contest to celebrate … well … EVERYTHING!
One of my fondest memories growing up was books. It was just me and my mom for the first 10 years or so. She was an avid reader (as was her mother) and she had shelves and shelves and shelves or books. All kids – classics, mysteries, romances, children’s literature – nothing was off-limits to my mom.
I spent hours combing through the books in the house. At first, I read the kids books. Then I loved onto any book with an interesting cover. Finally, I picked up the leather-bound “old”-looking books.
I attribute my love of reading now (and the love of reading my children have) to my mother and grandmother. I also believe all that reading providing the canvas from which I now craft stories.
Pretty darn cool, right???
So, in honor of my mother and grandmother and their loved of reading – I am holding a CONTEST!
Win a Barnes & Noble gift certificate OR a 10 page critique from me! All you have to do is leave a comment on this post and tell me one of your fondest memories. If you tweet, facebook or otherwise spread the love, tell me and I will give you an additional entry for each one.
