November 15th to 25th

I'm swamped with grading papers this week and am missing my blogging buddies immensely!! I'm thankful that I have all week off next week to catch up with all my favs and hopefully some new friends!

I love Thanksgiving and I'm grateful for my blog over the last three years, Peppermint PhD has truly been a blessing to me...in ways I never could have imagined.  

Thanks to Kathy over @ I Am A Reader, Not A Writer and her tireless giveaways (how in the world does she keep up with all of this??? ), I'm offering up for grabs some selections from my shelves :)  All the books are gently read by me and the links to my reviews are provided when applicable.  Any specific flaws on the books are also noted beside the individual selection as listed below.

To enter my giveaway, all you have to do is Follow Peppermint PhD by GFC, Twitter, Email, Facebook, or Networked Blogs.  If you already follow, just let me know and how.
  In the comments, please indicate how you followed, the book of your choice, your email and blog address. Please don't forget your blog address; I love to visit new blogs!
