  10. I am a new follower!
    I, too, have not read "The Help". I tried finding a contest for it. I won "The Help Contest', have the T-shirt, pen and note pad but not the book!!!!It has langushing on my "To Buy List" for such a long time.

    I looked up "These are My Words" and am amazed that I haven't heard it it before! I am currently reading "Half Broke Horses" by Jeanette Walls and that book makes me really want to read this one.

    I have been wondering about "Room:" for so long and that I need to read to see how I feel about it. Congratulations on picking some real winners!!!

    I would love to win this giveaway because Room has been on my wish list for a while now and I just recently added The Help. I just read some reviews for These Is My Words and I would love to read it. Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

  12. I've heard a lot about two of those books and i'd be so excited to read them! Thanks for the giveaway!!

  13. I want to read The Help because I just saw the movie and it was AMAZING, and everyone knows that the book is usually much better.

    I want to read Room because the synopsis really grabbed me and won't get out of my head. I can't imagine a life like that.

    I want to read These Is My Words because I can't imagine living in that time and this book based on someone who did. It sounds so interesting.


  14. I would love to read these books! Owning them would make it so much easier!

  15. I loved The Help so the other two must be good too! Thanks for the chance.

    What a great giveaway! I'd love to win this because The Help was also one of my favorite books of the year, but I borrowed it from the library, so I'd love my own copy. I also am interested in reading the other books! Thank you!
