Really Random Tuesday #86: A Book Winner, and a Sassy Quotation

Please help me to congratulate Carl Scott, who has won a copy of My Thinning Years, a memoir by Jon Derek Croteau.  Congratulations, Carl!

Thanks to all who participated in my giveaway, and special thanks to TLC and the publisher, for offering a copy of this book to one of my readers.  We bloggers are fortunate to be able to offer our readers so many wonderful book giveaways!  :)


This Really Random Tuesday post will be short.  I'm still reading Me Before You by Jojo Moyes, slowly but surely.  (This will be a book I'll miss reading when I'm done.)  I don't have a recipe to post today (although I'm dreaming of making white bean chili tonight, a recipe I found in my inbox).  I'm not sure it's in "good taste" to share yesterday's humorous quotation from my Wild Words from Wild Women calendar, although at least it's related to books, so:



Appearing on random Tuesdays, Really Random Tuesday is a way to post odds and ends--announcements, musings, quotes, photos--any blogging and book-related things you can think of.  I often announce my book giveaway winners in these posts.  If you have miscellaneous book news to gather up and are inspired by this idea, "grab" the button for use on your own blog, and add your link to the "master" Mister Linky on the Really Random Tuesday page.

Thanks for stopping by!  Your comments are welcomed.

  4. I loved Me Before You. I hope you do too. Be Ready to cry. I love your quote from Wild Words Wild Women. Congrats to your winner of My Thinning Years!

  5. Reading Me Before You was definitely a book I missed when I finished it. Also, it was one of those rare books that literally made me cry. Yet, in a strange way, it was not hopeless. Only beautiful in a sad way.

  6. Well and happy reading to your winner.

    What a wonderful quote.

  7. Congrats to Carl! I loved Me Before You - enjoy it! My book club had a good job discussing it as well. I really need to read her next novel!
