One World-One Heart Giveaway

I'm surfing too much this morning - I need to get ready for work! But I found something interesting and decided to participate. Photo

One World-One Heart is an annual event connecting bloggers throughout the world. The event includes a giveaway - each participating blogger can offer a prize to those who visit the blog and leave a comment. For more information, click on the image.

As a child, I depended on books to take me out into the world. Book discussion groups have always been delightful experiences. I work at a library and participate in BookCrossing. Since books loom large in my life, my prize is a book - The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, a new hardback copy. The book will be awarded by a random-number drawing.

I'm looking forward to meeting new friends. To enter my giveaway, leave a comment on this post.

Who will win? Stay tuned!

Added 2/11/09 - Comments will be closed at 10:00 p.m. PST and the drawing will take place immediately thereafter!

And the winner is...Jill of Jewelry Elegance! She's #400 in the Caravan, at http://http://jewelryelegancebyjill.blogspot.com/. Congratulations, Jill!

Many thanks to Lisa for giving me the opportunity to travel in the Caravan.

I would love to work in a library - it may sound odd, but I ADORE the smell of libraries - all of those pages new and old. Wonderful!
I am also a member of BookCrossing, though it has been awhile since I released one to the wild (I dont get out much these days).
I would be thrilled to win a book- there is nothing better!
