*UPDATED* Giveaway: Books with a small side of chocolate

*UPDATED* I've now closed comments on this giveaway... my daughter and her playdate friend will pick the winners tomorrow, Sunday, April 27th. Sorry you didn't make it in time... please stop by for the next giveaway!

Welcome to my blog and my giveaway! I hope you'll come back occasionally and say hi!

Giveaway #1 is a book called Trou.ble Free Trav.el with Chil.dren by Vicki Lan.sky. It's a good book, but it's not right for my situation. It is pretty focused on domestic travel within the United States and most of the information on foreign travel is for one big trip, whereas I actually live and travel in Europe most of the time. Anyway, I thought it would be great to giveaway for someone who wants more advice and hasn't travelled much with their children, or someone who has children of all different ages to entertain. And since I'm known for giving away chocolate, you know I'll throw in a bit just for fun!

Giveaway #2 is a book called SA.HM I Am: Tal.es of a Stay-at-Home Mom in Eu.rope by Chris.tine Louise Hohl.baum. I borrowed it from a friend but didn't finish, and this is the copy I bought to finish it, so I'll admit, sheepishly, that it's slightly used. And, as promised above, I'll also throw in a little chocolate with this one as well.

Please add your comment below to be entered in the drawing, and let me know if you want to enter for #1, #2, or both. Don't forget to leave your email address if your blog won't be linked on your comment. I'll pick a winner on Saturday, April 26th and notify the winners right away. This giveaway, because of the international spirit of this blog, will be open to anyone!

Visit the Bloggy Giveaways Carnival for more giveaways! Have fun!

I'd like to enter for #2, please. I'm not a mom, but it sounds like it might be entertaining anyway (and I know some moms I could pass it on to).

Joanna said...

Both would be nice, but the first book would be more helpful.

And, goodness, don't forget the chocolate!

Thank you for your giveaway!

ooo! Both! I love to travel with my dd, why should I have all the fun. And I have a weird desire to see how other moms do it (raise kids) in other countries.

nor_lou said...

great book and I never say no to chocolate

Kim said...

No small kids to travel with anymore but I'd gladly re-gift the book to a friend who could use it. But the chocolate, well I'd keep that for ME! :-)

I'm giving away an African batik today, and the rest of the week I'll be giving away other gifts from around the world. Would love it if you could stop by!

#2 piques my interest the most... and hey.. books are meant to be read.. a "used" book is more than likely a GOOD book! :) hope that being in the US is ok... i know its probably quite the postage!

I'd be interested in book #2. We traveled to Europe when our now 12 year old was 10 months old, and stayed for a 3 weeks. Traveling with an infant in a different culture sure was interesting!
