Definition of addiction:

Uhhhhh…… yes. My name is Sheila and I have a book addiction.
In mid March we had our Spring Library sale. I went. I waited in line. I saw. I purchased.
At 50 cents a book – seriously how could I resist? The opportunity for me however lies in reading the books. The ones I bought last fall, sadly so far go unread.
This is where I need your help. As I posted in March, and now again, I would love it if you would leave a comment here letting me know which book from the ones pictured here you would like to own. On Friday May 7th, I will use random.org and pick one of the comments. The winners book of choice will be read as soon as possible and then I will pass the book to them.
This worked wonderfully in March when Ryan of Wordsmithonia won with his request for Titanic 2012. I reviewed that earlier today and on Monday I will be sending the book to him.
If you commented the last time I did this – please do so again. I will be choosing from this list next Friday. This is a win win, it makes me get to the books I bought and you may win a great book! 😀
Oh and remember Titanic 2012 is already gone. 🙂

I’m probably having a senior moment, but, what list? Where is the list of books to choose from, please? It sounds like fun to help choose the book you’ll read next.
My goof Kathy – I forgot to post the pictures with this….. GAH! 🙂
I’d like to read Please Stop Laughing at Me. It sounds like fun.
I would love to read Ann Patchett’s Truth and Beauty – I read Bel Canto and fell in love with her writing. (<- comment from March!)
I’d like to read Between Sisters
Is there a list to choose from?
The books pictured Esme 🙂
I’d love to read Club Dumas. It looks like a great book lover’s mystery.
(I found the list under the related post, “Oh Snap”)
My comment from March still holds true: Wow, this is a fun giveaway! I would very much like to win The Club Dumas by Arturo Perez-Reverte. I have not read this book, huge plus for wanting to win it. I am a bibliophile, I adore mysteries and the works of Dumas.

I’m another one who can’t find the list.
I have been wanting to read David Baldacci’s Deliver us From
Many thanks, Cindi
Um, if Kathy is having a senior moment then I am too! I can’t see the list – am I being particularly dense?
I am definitely eying the Ted Dekker book.. he is such an amazing writer IMO. Bone man’s Daughter has been on my wish list for awhile =)
I say Year of Wonders by Geraldine Brooks.
THE ROBBER BRIDE by Margaret Atwood was my first thought, then I noticed CLUB DUMAS by Perez-Reverte. Now I’m stuck.
Since CLUB DUMAS deals with book loves and many of us share that addiction, that one gets my vote.
Your pile is the reason I have stopped going to book sales, sort of. Last time I went to my sister’s library sale I came home with 4 boxes of books. When am I supposed to read them all? Who cares, they are good books. My name is Pat and I have an addiction……..
I would love to read/own Titanic 2012. Commented on Titanic, earlier today).
Thanks for the opportunity to participate in this giveaway.
Hi Alexa – Titanic 2012 is the only book not available. This one was picked and won by Ryan last month. Please choose any other book 🙂
Between Sisters By Kristen Hannah is what I’d pick!
I would love to read Mirror Mirror
I’d like to read Fat Girls.
I pick BONEMAN’S DAUGHTERS by Dekker. I haven’t read any of his books yet, but they are certainly popular.
I would pick the Three Sisters Trilogy, but I already own it and am listening to the first one on audio right now. I love that trilogy!!
Does it make it any easier to know that you’re not alone in your addiction? I’m a total book addict too, and while there’s no way I’ll be able to read all the books I already own, I keep buying more….*L*
After studying both pictures, think I would pick either Outtakes From A Marriage or The Best of Friends.
I like this idea, as it forces you to read something from your TBR piles! Have fun with this!
Wow, that’s like turning a kid loose in a candy store and saying pick one! LOL
But given the circumstances…I’d choose Outtakes from a Marriage.
(I loved Robber Bride, but I already have that one!)
Definitely Between Sisters. Then send it to my house. Thanks much in advance! 🙂
i think you should read vision in white by nora roberts 🙂
We share the same addiction, Sheila!
There are quite a few I want to read out of these but I will go for Boneman’s Daughter – I love a good thriller.
Wow, so many good books it’s had to choose! I’ll go with Ann Patchett’s Truth and Beauty.
I’d love to get the Ted Dekker book for my husband to read – we almost bought it in the bookstore today!
I’m going to say The Queen of the big time.
What a great way to motivate yourself! I pick Auditions by Barbara Walters – my mom would love it.
This one was difficult and I’m going to kick myself because I would love to read Life’s a Beach by Clair Cook, I really loved her book “Must Love Dogs”. However, I would recommend Please Stop Laughing At Me. I only feel comfortable recommending a book I have read and that one is very moving and powerful. It was a groundbreaking book on the movement to stop bullying.
I’m going with Between Sisters–always love a book about sisters.
Ted Dekker’s book sounds good! My vote is for The Boneman’s Daughters. Thanks for the opportunity!
I think you ought to read The Queen of the Big Time by Adriana Trigiani. I have never read anything by her and want to know what you think of that book.
With May being the month of Mother’s Day, since there isn’t a book there with the word Mother in the title, I think you should read Between Sisters by Kristin Hannah next. (just because a lot of Mothers are sisters too….lol). I have heard great things about her books from friends, but have never read any.

I have heard Truth and Beauty is really good.
amandarwest at gmaildotcom
I would love to win The Thief by Megan Turner.
I think Garrison Keillor’s WOBEGON BOY would be a good read…I listen to him on public radio and am always riveted to his stories. Thanks for the chance to win it!
I’m going to say Ann Patchett’s Truth and beauty again! LOL!
I would like to read Life’s a Beach by Claire Cook.
I’m gonna pick…. Fat Girl or Please Stop Laughing at Me.
I’d go with Bone Man’s Daughters by Ted Dekker!
The Robber Bride! I’m on a Grimm’s Brothers kick right now. 🙂
I would enjoy reading Queen of Big Time. Thanks.
I pick “The Robber Bride” by Margaret Atwood… Sounds like a great book.
Oh how I can relate. I just went to a sale today (twice!) and came home with stacks of more books to read!!! 🙂
I vote for The Robber Bride by Atwood.
What a fabulous addiction to have though 🙂 I think you should read Boneman’s Daughters by Ted Dekker, I would love to read that.
I can’t see what Mary Higgins Clark you had, she is my favourite author, you definitely should read that one soon.
HI Marce – I know my pics are not the greatest here… the book by Mary Higgins Clark is Kitchen Privileges. 🙂
You’ve got a lot of interesting books in your TBR pile. I think you should read The Thief next. I’ve heard really good things about that series.
I say Wobegon Boy.
I would be interested in reading The Boneman’s Daughter by Ted Dekker…Thank you
I vote for Year of Wonders, just because I’d like to read your thoughts. I already own a copy. Congrats on the hoopty fine new stacks!
I have an award for you at Reminder List!
I vote for the Nora Roberts Three Sister’s trilogy.
Thank you for the opportunity.
Thanks for the email! I would go for Mirror Mirror by Gregory Maguire. I love fairytale re-tellings and really enjoyed Wicked by the same author.
I am a “wanne-be” be readers. I mean, “back in the day< I would read and read and read. THEN, I had kids. Now I buy awesome books with good intentions and they sit dormant on my shelf. I can pick away at them (read while I'm on the treadmill, waiting rooms, etc) but I long for the time/day I can just sit and relish a book completetely. I love that pictire of you in your header (on your deck , in the sun, with laptop and surrounded by books). That gives me something to shoot for 🙂 -becky
Thanks franticmommy – that is my favorite place to read… on the deck in the sun! 😀
What a great group of books – I can see why you have a difficult time choosing which one to read.
My vote would be for Dekker’s The Boneman’s Daughter.

I’ve been meaning to read something by Kristan Hanah, so I’ll choose “Between Sisters” if my name is drawn.
I would love to read Between Sisters by Kristin Hannah:) It has been on my TBR list for awhile! Thanks for the chance to win!
I have such a hard time passing up a book sale! It drives my husband crazy because I still have books unread from other “must have” purchases! 🙂 Oh Well!
I would love to read Mirror Mirror by Gregory Maguire. I’ve read some of his other books and love his quirky takes on fairy tales!
I would pick Adriana Trigiani’s The Queen of the Big Time! Everything I hear about her is gooooood and I still haven’t managed to read one of her books *sigh*
I choose Margaret Atwood’s The Robber Bride.
Year of Wonders! I love that book! I don’t own it though so it’s perfect. You read it, love it, and pass it on to me! lol.
Just in cas lightning could strike twice I would love to get Mirror Mirror by Gregory Maguire.
I’d like to read Between Sisters by Kristin Hannah!
Neat idea to get through your TBR shelf!
Vision in White by Nora Roberts
I would love to read Year of Wonders by Geraldine Brooks. The People of the Book was a wonderful read and I’ve heard good things about this one too. Thank you for entering me.
Please Stop Laughing at me…please! Story of my life…I’m drawn to that 😀
I’d like to read Mirror, Mirror by Gregory Maguire. This is such a neat idea!
I would love a chance to win Mirror, Mirror.
I choose SWAN THIEVES by Elizabeth Costova.
HI Linda –
The choices are from the books pictured above. 🙂
Phew! What a list…
I narrowed it down to about 10 in my head, lol. I think after your review of The Bride Collector that The Boneman’s Daughter would be a good pick 🙂
Good luck deciding!
I pick the book Boneman’s Daughters by Ted Dekker. Been wanting to read this book since it came out, and I think it would be a good one.
The book by Mary Higgins Clark. She is a favorite of mine.
I’d like to read “Face the Fire” by Nora Roberts. Thanks for the chance!
I would love to read Year of Wonders by Geraldine Brooks.
I’ve enjoyed everything I’ve read by Adriana Trigiani. Also by Claire Cook. You can’t go wrong with those authors, love their sense of humor that works so well in their novels! Year of Wonders is good too but I prefer the first two authors.
Also want to add that I’ve read Queen of the Big Time but not Life’s a Beach.
Am I too late? Just in case, I would read The ROBBER BRIDE. I love Atwood ‘s work and I haven’t read this one.
You are too late for this round Barbara but I will list these again after I finish the recent winners book 🙂
I can’t find the book Titanic 2012 anywhere….?
do you mean my postbookjunkiemom or to purchase? Amazon has it to but new from other sellers. You are right though, as I look around it is hard to find.
I’m too late.
Tea – we will play again soon 🙂
I’m quite a fab of Kristen Hannah so I have to say Between Sisters
i’d love to read Boneman’s Daughters….
happy reading! 🙂
Not sure if you’re still playing this lol
Year of Wonders has been on my wishlist for years. Please read it and send it along. Great idea for a contest too!
