So the other day, I took my kids to the library to play in the Discovery Room that they have and to pick out a few(30) new books for the next couple of weeks. So while the kids were playing, I was out browsing the new releases. The librarian approached me and told me about an Adult Summer Reading Drawing that they were having. I just had to enter my name and email address and I would be entered to win some books. I glanced at the titles only briefly and decided that it didn't really matter what the titles were. First of all, chances are I'm not going to win, and secondly FREE BOOKS!! Does it really matter what the titles were.
A couple of days later, I got an email from the librarian letting me know that I had won the drawing. I was so excited. I like winning free books!! Then I remembered I'm excited, but I really don't know what I'm excited about. I asked her if she could let me know the titles that were a part of the drawing. I wasn't going to be able to pick them up until after the 4th of July holiday since the library was closed for the whole weekend. So, these are the titles that were included in the drawing:
Les Brown, Live Your Dreams -- published 1992
Russell Simmons, Def Poetry Jam on Broadway -- published 2003
Nene Leakes, Never Make the Same Mistake Twice --published 2009
Eric Jerome Dickey, Between Lovers -- published 2001
Sharon Mitchell, Near Perfect --published 2001
Barry Lee Pearson, Jook Right On -- published 2005
Angie Daniels, Trouble Loves Company -- published 2007
Now, while I am grateful for the win, I would hope that for a summer reading drawing:
1. The books would be summer related OR
2. The books would be on a summer reading list OR
3. The books would be current or recent
I will enjoy my books that is for sure, but I'm not rushing to go and pick them up!!
