I used to read Heartsong Presents but since I'm not a part of the club I haven't in a long time.
I'd love to get my hands on any of BArbour's books.
Thanks for the contest!

I love all things Olympics so this is a cool contest.

Kind of like participating in one's first Olympics. Just happy to be included and bronze, silver, gold...any of the above would be wonderful.

As a fairly new reader of your blog, I'm really enjoying it. When I was in Christian retailing in the '80's, I really enjoyed selling Barbour books because of the relevant topics and reasonable prices. And now you've added fiction to the mix, making it even better.

I would love to be a medal winner in the "Barbour Olympics."

Hey Becky,
Great idea! I am so excited, also, to see Gilbert's Civil War series back. What great books! "Calico Canyon" is also a fantastic read. I am sure the other books are as well seeing the line-up of author.

Patricia W and Jessica, do you need to add your whole names?

A contest livens things up, doesn't it Becky?

Thanks for including me, Becky. After posting and re-reading your post, I realised my mistake.

Not exactly a gold mental move--but hopeful. (Smile)

Can you believe how exciting the Olympics have been!?!? I didn't figure I'd get into them but I've been glued to them every night. I whooped and hollered during both of the relays Phelps was in. Woke my husband. (oops) Winning your gold, Becky, will be almost as exciting.

What fun. It adds a special touch to Olympic watching-our own chance to win!
Of course I'd love to have the Gold, but the others would be great, too. I love the White Chocolate Pie title. Would love to have the recipe to it!
Please put my name in that hat!

Ausjenny said...

Im an aussie whos been really excited by the Aussie women. (the men are trying) I love the swimming and other sports. I do love what Jessica Shiffer (sp) of australia said when she won bronze. her goal was to do better than last time and win a medal. She was excited about Bronze and looked happy about it and that was inspiring. In the same matter any medal here would be a bonus.
Of course with the olympics on I am not reading much or getting enough sleep. but I have to say Aussie Aussie Aussie, Oi Oi Oi.
Please enter me if aussies can enter.

How fun! I've enjoyed this blog and the interesting subjects that you cover.

With so many people entering, I know the chances are slim, but I'd jump through hoops if I could to win the Gold. Of course, I rejoice with the Silver, and welcome the Bronze.

Thank you for this chance.

I realized my last entry just had my first name, so I've edited my profile to include more info--just in case my name is drawn. :)

I haven't read one of the longer fiction books that I didn't really enjoy. I'm glad Barbour decided to publish those. I'd like to see more western and prairie settings.net
