Birthday Book Giveaway Day 1

Today's (Monday) giveaways are signed copies of Mary Connealy's Calico Canyon and Carol Cox's A Bride So Fair.

To Enter:
If you'd like a chance to win these books as a set, let me know who you favorite author is from the 19th century or earlier. I'm pretty sure I can safely say Charlotte Bronte. The first book I read in my early 20's that got me back on the road to reading was Jane Eyre. LOVED THAT BOOK! I started buying old Bronte sister novels! Who is your favorite?
Commenters have until 9pm to leave a comment with your email, and I'll draw a name that night. Come back tomorrow for a new giveaway!! If you take the photo from my initial announcement and place it with a link on your site, I'll give you an extra entry for Monday's giveaway. If you post an entry about my giveaway with a link, you'll get an entry for every day this week!! You just need to leave me a comment (once) that you've done so and a link to let me know. Blessings

Happy birthday to you! I hope it's a good one.

As far as favorite authors go, I really don't read novels from the 19th century or earlier, but I do love poetry from those times. I like Elizabeth Barrett Browning and Emily Dickenson especially. Great question, and again, happy birthday.

Thank you for the giveaway.

I would love to be entered into your drawing. As for my favorite author for this specific time period, I have both a male and a female. I remember reading "Black Beauty" as a child which was written by Anna Sewell. Lewis Carroll, really Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, wrote Alice in Wonderland which really has a mathematical background to it.

Thank you,

Christine

"The Face - Angela Hunt: Absolutely great read, don't want to give to much away..and there are no words to describe how much the story mirrored what Christ did for us, and what it did for me in the reading of it. I was shedding tears from chapter 57 until the very end of the story. Beautifully written, a real blessing. For those of you who haven't read this yet...Don't walk, RUN to your nearest bookstore or webstore and get it. God has given her a special gift for reaching into the hearts and spirits of your readers. This would make a really wonderful movie.
Less Than Dead - Tim Downs - This is part of his series "A Bug Man Novel". I have read everyone of his books. The Bug Man is a forensic entomologist, a great character. It is definitely a mystery that is anything but dead, with desperate killers, cadaver dogs, a little romance, some humor and thrills Something like a CSI or Bones (TV) script. I couldn't put it down."
