*This is a little nonfic gardening book with amazing advice, remedies and tips for the home gardener.

*I've already read this one, many times, but I needed to look up a passage for a friend, and ended up re-reading several favorite chapters, so it counts.

    I would be so in love with winning this contest. I work 12 hours graveyards and this would do me for a month. Not to mention so many authors I've never read. Postage is going to be fairly brutal though.

  2. All I can say is PICK ME!!

    I will be in the US this summer so don't fear the international postage rates to Egypt :)

  3. At least with the list, I could re-create it -- winning this one would truly be like hitting the lottery!

  4. what an awesome list; wow!!! A tremendous amount of great reading.

  5. I am so impressed with your reading speed. I thought I read fast, but I am in awe. I'd love to win, for the material, but also to get such an awesome package in the mail. It would be like a summer Christmas.

  6. It would definitely be like having Christmas in summer. I am truly in awe by how much you've read this week (and a little jealous). Hope you're having a good weekend, and that the weather is cooperating (have you had much rain lately?)

  7. Does the packages include bookshelves? :)

  8. Wow! That is an awesome list.

    Several favorites and quite a few new authors I would love to try.

  9. What a wonderful list!

  10. I am impressed with this great abundance. Would enjoy reading everything. Fabulous for the summer.

  11. What a wonderful assortment of reading material. Ideal for relaxing the summer away.

  12. This is so great! It is just what I would love to become immersed in. Such a variety and so perfect.

  13. That amazing list is unbelieveable. I am crazy about it. For dedicated readers this is heaven.

    Just curious, but how long did it take you to read the Raintree book (just to get an idea of the speed you are at)?

    Man, that whole list is just amazing. I don't think I could read that much in two to three months. And it's super amazing considering how much you write and read during a week. I'm in AWE.


  15. Your diverse tastes are lovely. The list is delightful and I would so enjoy reading these. This is a holiday diversion,books amd magazines. What more could I want.

  16. Anonymous4:02 PM

    Oh, which also leads me to wonder how much you spend on books a month? You might be singlehandedly keeping publishers in business!


  17. Reading is my favorite thing to do! Would love to win.

  18. Books are balm to my soul. I read and have always felt this way about books and reading. The choice is divine.

  19. All I can say is...well...OOH! There are so many authors I either want to read because I've heard of them and like them (Stephen King) or there's books I've heard lots of hype about (Raintree) that I want to read...the Hugh Laurie reading Great Expectations is just too awesome.

    My family wants me to win this so they can get a crack at some of the books too.

    Fingers crossed.

    Wow what a cool list of authors I either want to read because I've heard great things about their books or some of them are my favorite authors!

    I would love to win this contest since I love reading!

    Terri W.

  21. Great contest!!I would love to win!!!I read really fast too. If the book is good I just can't put it down and usually read it in one sitting. I just can't stop!! Then I get frustrated if I have nothing to read after that!!LOL!!These would keep me busy for awhile!! Good luck to everybody!!!

  22. You'd better stop or you're going to need a sea container just to ship it around the country :)

  23. Are those jingle bells that I hear? Or the prancing of little hooves? Looks around to see if I can spot Santa. I had no idea his hair was so long...and dark. ;) Terrific list. Quite a variety. There are a few books on there that I've been meaning to buy. There are also several that I've never read. I suppose that's fairly typical. *g*

    I'm tossing my hat into the ring. Thanks for this contest--it's encouraging to see that I'm NOT alone in my reading frenzy :D

  25. Anonymous9:08 PM

    Just wanted to say i love your blog. How do you read so much in a week??! I love to read but usually only manage at most a book a day...

    Am tosing my name in the hat for the giveaway...knowing it'll take a month to read all the books ob the list (which I plan to do regardless of whether I win or not)


  26. Anonymous9:33 PM

    Dang! The number of books that you read are impressive. I would love to win because I'm a poor college student and my school's library never gets any new fiction books.

    elaine c.

  27. Two words: holy cow!

    BTW: placing my name in the hat.


  28. That's amazing. I always thought I was fast but you've got me beat lol.

  29. Wow, what a prize! Thanks for sharing with all us readers, bloggers and fans.

  30. Anonymous11:57 PM

    ooooh diverse books. i am covet your bookshelf.

  31. Anonymous4:12 AM

    I hope I'm not too late, but I can never work out the difference between EST and GMT so I'm fairly sure I've missed the dealine... as usual :-)

  32. What a selection!

    I have been in such a reading rut, just re-reading a few old favorites I happened to find unpacked from my move 18 months ago. And yes, there are STILL boxes to of these days....

    Here's hoping!

  33. I just have to say I'm stunned at what you can manage to read in a week. Incredible :).

  34. Wow, what a list! I always have a book under my nose. This is an awesome contest. Please include me. Thanks.
