Soup, Anyone?

Chicken soup. Is there anything better? Especially, when it's for your soul?

I remember getting my first Chicken Soup For The Soul book when I was in my first year of college. My roommate and I devoured that book. It made me feel all warm and cozy all over. Granted, that may have been the copious amounts of adult beverages in my system but I like to think it was the book.

Anyway- The generous folks over at Phenix & Phenix Literary Publicists asked me if I was interested in hosting a giveaway/review of not one, not two, BUT three books.

Of course, I agreed. Isn't that what blogging is all about? The reviews, the giveaways, the shameless requests for comments?

So, three of my lucky readers will be receiving a book. I will utilize a highly secure method of printing off your comments and letting Maddie pick the winners.

I just need to know which book you want. And I'll work out the details laters.

Book 1: Chicken Soup for the Soul: Like Mother, Like Daughter- Stories about the special bond between mothers and daughters.

Book 2: Chicken Soup for the Soul: Moms Know Best- Stories of appreciation for mothers and their wisdom

Book 3: Chicken Soup for the Soul: Moms and Sons- Stories by mothers and sons, in appreciation of each other.

I've read through a few stories in each of these books, and I haven't been disappointed. Keep in mind that the holidays are right around the corner, and any of these would make a great present.

Just leave a comment with what book you are interested in. Comments will be taken until Sunday night at 11:59. Winners will be announced on Monday.

Good luck!

Dangitall- now I'm craving a bowl of chicken noodle soup.

Mark and I have started a tradition with those books! Anytime we're on a road trip, he drives and I read Chicken Soup out loud to him. It's a great way to pass the time and you get that warm, fuzzy feeling as a bonus!

I love those books, too! Just tell Maddie "Gram wants the mother/daughter Chicken Soup". I check the blog at least twice a day just hoping you have posted!

Do you know, I've never read Chicken Soup for the soul? I think I'm the only one on the planet..

I don't have a preference, any of those 3 books would work to introduce me to the 'Chicken Soup' world. :)

Happy Blogiversary! I just got these books for a giveaway too. :) I'll save mine for posting until yours is over, though. No need to enter me in the giveaway, as I've got them here to peruse anyway.

I have 2 daughters who are becoming more and more like me everyday! As I am my mother's daughter, I would live the "like mother,like daughter book.

PS; I've been stalking your block for months! Your situations are well wrote and humerous.

I read those books to my high school students. They respond to the stories in their journals. It is a great way to discuss real world situations and how they are connected to literature. Tell Miss Maddie that her loving Miss Christie would love the book about mothers and sons because she and Ethan could read it together!

when I was in high school my grandma introduced me to the books & I loved them. A few months before she passed I spent the evening (6-8) hours reading the stack she had by her bedside to her.It was bittersweet, all the years she read to me as a child, I was able to return the favor. I would love to win the mother-sons book to give as a baby shower gift to my sister-in law. She's due w/ her second boy.
