Out Out Out!

Did I say I'd throw out fifty things by Friday? I better get busy! This morning, my mission was to go through my photos and fit everything into two boxes. I'm not quite there yet, but I need to move on to something less fussy if I'm going to hit fifty today. On the other hand, I had no trouble at all pulling out a nice, tall stack of books to donate to the library's book sale!
37. Pile of books.
38. Photographs.

Now, how about a giveaway for the kids? For this giveaway, leave a comment telling me either your favorite book as a child or a current favorite of your kids. Comments will close Sunday at 9 pm my time, and the winner may choose either the two Lena Anderson books on the left or the two stylish, graphic books on the right. This one will be open only to US commenters (sorry!) so I can take advantage of cheap, book-rate postage!

Make sure I can get in touch with you if you win! I need an email or a blog address, please!

And her 2nd favorite is Fox in Socks. Awesome.

My favorite picture book was Marvin K. Mooney. When I was a little older my favorite books were the Oz series by Frank Baum and The Secret Garden.

I loved Ramona books growing up. Thankfully I have helped my boys love reading as well. They love Sammy The Seal. ;o)

The two on the right look cute. My son LOVES the magic treehouse series and my daughters love Sandra Boynton books.

When I was little, my favorite book was Mr Bell's Fix-It Shop. When I got a little older, I switched to Nancy Drew and Trixie Belden.

I love kids books...some of my favorites are "Stand Back Said The Elephant I'm Going to Sneeze" and "Alexander and the No-Good, Very Bad, Awful, Horrible Day" (or something like that, the book is all the way on the other side of the room. =) Reading through the previous comments, I have read almost all of the books mentioned. I still love and reread Wind in the Willows at least once a year.

I specifically remember falling in love with The Secret Garden, and dreaming about it for days (weeks?) after I had finished.

Thanks for the chance to win!
