A book giveaway

Here is a book of Tips. Insight into "having what matters", is what the blurb tells me.

Luci Swindoll, author of this book, is a sister to the more famous Swindoll, Charles. She is, however, a famous speaker and author in her own right, apparently.

I'm always a bit wary of someone giving me advice, particularly advice about "making the most of everyday". My days are pretty squeezed as they are. 

But she's given us some gems in this book. I like the way each of her 50 tips is encapsulated in five words. That makes them easier to take away into every day. Here are some to try on:
  • Acknowledge your need for help
  • Stay proactive about your health
  • Decide what is not necessary
  • Allow yourself to be sad
  • Engage people in fun conversation
  • Disregard what isn't your business
  • Celebrate the life you're given
Each tip comes with an engaging short story. Not every tip was applicable to me, but enough were that I wouldn't mind keeping the book around for future reference (or maybe to the school library where I can borrow it again).

Because of slow postage and an overly quick email to Book Sneeze, I've ended up with two copies of the book. I'd like to give one of them away. I'd like to give it to someone who lives more than an hour away from their nearest English bookstore. Please comment below if that means you and you'd like a copy. I'll use a random number generator to decide who gets the book.

This is another review for http://booksneeze.com/

Yep, I'm more than an hour away from a bookstore. I'd love to win if that's what the random number generator decides. :)

Alas, I guess I have to dip out. There are English bookstores here in PP, although the selection is definitely not wide. Sounds like a good book though. Maybe I'll have to get my latest review written and see if it's still available.

It MIGHT take me an hour to CRAWL to Koorong. If I rest several times on the way.

I'm putting in my vote not for me to keep it, but for the CAJ library to get it. Their online catalog shows they don't have it.

If my entry is selected but the library doesn't want it, then I'll accept it. :)
