Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self. Cyril Connolly (1903 - 1974)


Giveaway: Four eBooks From Tribute Books (4 Winners)

There was a time before I had kids when I had time to sit and read to my heart's content. I love books. I will read a book and get into the characters so much that whenever the book is finish, I miss the characters and have to wait awhile to read another book. 
As a child, reading was my escape from life and it's problems with growing up in an orphanage. I hope I'm passing on this love of reading to my kids. It still amazes me that my son, age five, reads like a 10 year old and my daughter at age 3 reads almost on the same level! 

I love books and glad to offer this giveaway to you readers from Tribute books. You can read these ebooks through your kindle and iPad also.

The titles are:

1. Thumbing Through Thoreau: A Book of Quotations by Henry David Thoreau
complied by Kenny Luck

Fully illustrated collection of an American literary master

On July 4, 1845, when Henry David Thoreau moved into his cabin on the shores of Walden Pond, he was probably unaware that his abode in the woods, and the impact and influence of that endeavor, would forever echo through time.

Thoreau was an uncompromising idealist; an ardent maverick who criticized his fellow man. He urged that men and women ought to live more simply, and more deliberately. "The mass of men," he famously wrote, "lead lives of quite desperation."

Yet the scope of Thoreau’s message is much wider than social criticism. He speaks of spiritual transcendence in Nature and the unbounded potential of the individual. Thoreau is a dreamer and he speaks to dreamers. In aword, shun dogmatism and demagoguery; see beyond the immediate conventional religious explanations to reap a higher more

4. Second Chance: How Adoption Saved a Boy with Autism and His Shelter Dog
by Sandra J. Gerencher

A Believer in Second Chances
Over the past 10 years, author Sandra Gerencher has been on a mission to save dogs from high-kill animal shelters. Her first rescue was P.J., the black and white Pomeranian in the story. She also adopted the orange Pomeranians Shelby and Lil Rascal, and of course, Chance, the big black Rottweiler/German Shepherd mix.

All characters in the story are based on Sandra's real life family. The book is filled with softly blended watercolor photos of her loved ones.

Her most significant adoption was her son, Terry. He was considered a special needs child because he was born with a genetic disorder known as Fragile X Syndrome. The disorder can cause many cognitive disorders, such as autism, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, mental retardation and more
