GIVEAWAY, win a Little Library


I have been reading a lot lately, I tend to do that in the summer because I have more time to immerse myself in books without leaving work behind. I love a great fantasy, but I’ve been quite eclectic lately. So much so that I thought I needed a mental break from characters in pain, angst, or in the throws of life crises. So I turned to what Mr. Lemondrop sometimes refers to as my “You’re So Vain” Library. I love a good wardrobe suggestion book, they are such frivolous fun. Of course, not all of them are what they promise- a stylist in a bottle, but I do so enjoy comparing their tips to my own shopping and thrifting experiences. That said, it’s time to make some room on the bookshelves, so I am sharing some of my reads with you! Almost $100.00 in books! I believe in reading it forward and sharing when I can part with a book. But I won’t share my Harry Potter or Tolkien.


Titles: you win all of these!
Effortless Style by June Ambrose
A lovely little book, Style by Kate Spade

    I love these types of stylist books! What Not to Wear has been a favourite of mine and makes me gasp when I see something in their closet that might be a little too similar to something I own!Love your blog and I'm following!!: )

    These types of books and What Not to Wear on TLC are sort of a guilty pleasure for me. I love being a college student since I can borrow books from any library in the state! I'm sure all of the librarians think I'm crazy for some of the books I borrow.I'm a follower! And I blogged about your give away!http://star-spangledheart.blogspot.com/2010/08/fashion-book-giveaway.htmlgirlwiththestarspangledheart@gmail.com

    When it comes to novels I typically read books written before 1950 (1920's and 30's mostly). But when it comes to books in general I will pick up anything that catches my eye. And yes, I am a follower :)

    How fun! I read anything and everything, really (especially fantasy/sci fi)… for my fashion reading/guilty pleasures I tend to stick to fashion magazines, but all these books look like great fun!I'm a follower through Google Reader. Thank you for the chance to win!

    I don't read twitter or facebook…too many cool vintage blogs to read, or books I thrift. Right now I'm ready a book about Louisa Mae Alcott. Good stuff. Your blog jumped to the top of my list when I "happened upon it" today. What a lovely place to visit! BTW…I really like to read self-help, too. Thanks for the chance!Shaner82 (jamieh@whitemtns.com)

    Sorry about the above typo…should have read "reading a book", not "ready a book". ERRR…I hate when I do that! (OH, and I am a follower of your blog as well.) Thanks again! shaner82 (Jamie)

    I enjoy reading fiction that tells a good story. Chick Lit is my "brain candy" when I need something super light, but even my regular fiction can't be too heavy.I also love magazines and blogs. Mostly fashion and home decor related.I follow you on Google (though if you could change your posts so they're not truncated, I'd really appreciate that).What a great selection of books. I'd look to have these forwarded to me. I'm just tackling Mrs. O: The Face of Fashion Democracy before it's due back at the library in 2 weeks.
