Despite my deep love of things like chocolate and bacon and a really awesome pair of shoes, those of you who know me well know I have one love which surpasses all others. And despite the fact that this particular affection is something good for you, it still remains my number 1 vice; the thing I’m most likely to turn to for relaxation or entertainment or when I really should be working.
No, not that. Sheesh.
I’m referring, of course, to reading a good book. If the story is a bit magical… well, so much the better.
If you’re a girl at heart or have a female bibliophile in your life between the ages of 5-9, listen up: The Fairy Chronicles are a series from Sourcebooks about regular girls who also just happen to be fairies, and their associated adventures. The stories are darling and—perhaps best of all—they don’t involve subject matter best left to an older age group (something that is, sadly, becoming harder and harder to find for our young girls). These books are ideal for reading together or for her to read under the covers with a flashlight.
So far, there are seven different books in the Fairy Chronicles series. Each book retails for $6.99. I have a set of those seven books to give away to one lucky Want Not reader! The retail value is close to $49, but can you really put a value on nurturing a child’s love of reading? No, you cannot.
For a chance to win the book set, leave a comment on this post before 11:59 p.m. on Wednesday, April 23rd, 2008. One comment per person, please! Winner to be determined by random drawing and (what else?) pixie dust. Obviously.
