Giveaway #3 - On Beauty

Yes, more fireworks. How did you guess?

Giveaway #3 is a paperback copy of Zadie Smith's "On Beauty." It has been read (by me). There is a slight crease in the front cover (by me).



If you win, let me know what you think. I was a bit meh on it.

The rules, once again: Leave a comment and it will count as a vote. One comment per person. If you link back to this post, you get three entries total. Winner will be drawn at random on Sat, July 14.

We have a new addition to the family as of Sunday, a 9 lb baby boy named Skyller (kids, these days!). He is my darling niece's second son.

Please send along your thoughts and prayers, because he is starting out his life with a big challenge - his heart valves are crossed up and he needs surgery today to correct that. The doctors seem calm and confident - apparently this surgery is common enough that they expect him to be just fine.

But still! Heart surgery on a tiny lad. It does make an auntie tug at her hair a bit.

Thanks for all your birthday wishes and contest entries. Also for the lovely people who have nominated me to be a rockin' girl blogger or a thinking blogger. I'm sorry but I have not been too meme-alicious lately, but I do love you for thinking of me.

Prayers and good thoughts going to Skyller and to all those who must wait... that's the hardest part.

Okay, the Gucci shirt was too small, but books are one size fits all!

Thinking good thoughts for little Skyller (I have a young cousin with that name--it must be getting popular).

OOH! Skyller what a cool name. I used to know a boy named Skyller-he was hot. Ok that's not the point. The point is of course I will say a prayer!

And count me in for that book!

Yeah, I got a couple memes that I haven't done yet either. oops

Sending good vibes Skyller's way! Modern medicine is truly a marvel and hopefully it is as routine as the doctor says.

You know me, I can't resist books.

Major Bedhead said...

Good vibes to Skyller. I hope it all goes well.

Laura said...

Yes-- prayers and thoughts galore for the wee man. Wow.

One of my favorite students ever was named Skyler. He was very manly and hilarious all in the same little boy body.

Hello, I am Sarah's comment.

She hasn't read this one yet.

I could ALWAYS use new books. :)

And big hugs to your family - hope the surgery goes with zero complications. Sounds like they're pretty confident about it. :)

I'm so glad Skyller is going to be allright. I cannot conceive of something like that happening to such a tiny baby and how scared his parents must have been.
