Giveaway Time

Anyone who knows me well, knows how much I LOVE to read. I absolutely love the feel of a book in my hands and tend to get lost in it like most people do a movie. I prefer a book any day over a movie! I will read all kinds of books and one of my favorite places is within a book store.

Love, love, love it! It's my happy place.

With that said, as much as I love to read, I don't tend to review books or tell people about what I am reading unless it is something just so fantastic that I can't help but speak about it.

This is one of those books.

One of those books you simply can not seem to put down. It's an amazing true story over the baseball player Josh Hamilton. Living in Texas and knowing anything about baseball, you can't help but hear about him. My husband kept hearing about how good his book was and really wanted it. I bought it for him for our anniversary and the weekend we went away any time we were in the hotel room, we were both fighting for turns to read it! I am not exaggerating, it was that good! He, who never reads hardly anything but westerns, finished this book in a weekend.

You don't have to know anything about baseball to like this one. It's about a man who goes down a path that most don't ever come back from.With all that said, I guess, you can gather that we love it and have told everyone we know to read it.

1. Leave a comment and tell me you want it.
2. Twitter about it and give me your twitter link for an extra entry.
3. Post about the giveaway on your own blog for another entry. Link me to that too.
4. Become a follower and that will give you an instant 5 extra entries. If you already follow than you already get that with just commenting! :)
My only other request in this giveaway is that when you are finished, you agree to pass it on.

I'm a big reader, too! This is not a book I would normally choose for myself, but I'll try anything once!
