|Give Books, Not Roses #ValentinesDayReads|
Valentine's Day is a special time in our family! It is not only a romantic holiday but a day we LOVE to share with all the family members. We give gifts to our younger and adult children as well. Along with our youngest at age nine, we have two more daughters that are 22 and soon to be 19 living at home. They enjoy reading a good books, too. Think about it! Candy is delicious but temporary ... a good book can be shared and passed on to family, friends or our loved ones!
~ Happy Valentine's Day ~
Valentine’s Day is just around the corner! The crisp, cool air feels a little sweeter and stores are filling their shelves with greeting cards and candies. But instead of sharing the usual gifts, the way to someone’s heart can be through a story (and maybe a little bit of chocolate). Hachette Book Group is offering a “Give Books, Not Roses” Valentine’s Day giveaway for those of you who want to express your admiration for friends, family, and loved ones.
