Maud Hart Lovelace Reading Challenge Give-Away #1 -- CLOSED

Yeah! It's time for the first give-away for this year's Maud Hart Lovelace Reading Challenge!

Yes, we are starting small, this first give-away is a bookmark, but trust me when I say this is just the beginning and no where near the limit. I've got more to give-away, so check back each week to see what else you could win and to find out who has won the previous week's give-away.

This week I am giving away a beautiful bookmark straight from the Betsy-Tacy Society. This plastic bookmark, pictured below, is 6 ½" x 2 ¼" and includes a forest green tassel. The front includes a beautiful black-and-white photograph of Maud Hart Lovelace with the following words: "Forget-Me-Not", "Maud Hart Lovelace", "Author of the Betsy-Tacy books." The back of the bookmark includes a listing of all of Maud's books and the year that each was first published.

What better way to hold your place in your latest read and at the same time keep track of the other Maud Hart Lovelace books you want to read (or even own).


Here's how to win:

1. You must be a participant in the MHLRC. If you aren't go sign up.
2. You must be reading (or about to read) a MHL book as per this reading challenge.
3. You must be a resident of the USA.
4. Leave a comment on this post letting me know: 1) that you've joined, 2) which book you are reading (or about to read and when you plan to begin), and 3) include a link to your blog.

Entries are accepted through Friday, October 8. On Saturday the 9th I will randomly draw a winner who will be announced on Sunday, October 10 along with a post displaying the next give-away item. So once you've entered please be sure to check back next week to see if you've won!

Good luck and happy reading!

I joined the challenge. Just started re-reading Betsy and Joe this morning. Read Chapter 1 aloud to my daughters (ages 15 and 17) and they begged for more! I blog at Ramblin' Roads.

I'm in! I'm in! :-)

I read Betsy-Tacy and Tib to my girls a few months ago in anticipation of the challenge. I hope to pick up B and T Go Over the Big Hill as soon as we finish Pinky Pye (our current read-aloud). I also hope to get to Winona's Pony Cart if at all possible this month (and if I can find/buy a copy!).
