Summer reading giveaway!

The birds are chirping away in the trees outside my back door, happy as can be.  The sun is already warming the air and preparing to give us another hot day.  Summer is in full force.  This week the temperature is hovering in the mid- to high-80's and threatening to touch 90 degrees, bringing the humidity along with it.  How wonderful to slip outside during lunch and feel the warmth of the sun!  Getting out of the office with a sack lunch and a book can do wonders to shake off the morning's rush of emails and emergencies.  So how about a love story to take outside on your break, to transport you away from that phone and keyboard?  How about a book written by a blogger?  One that you probably "visit" now and then.

Last week I stumbled upon an advance proof of Pioneer Woman, Black Heels to Tractor Wheels, second-hand.  It is just the ticket for summer reading.  It's the full story of how the P.W. met and married her cowboy, and has some won.der.ful recipes at the end of the book.  If you'd like to carry this in your lunch bag (or beach bag!), please add a comment to this post.  I will pick one commenter on Sunday morning at 7:00am (eastern time), and it will be in the mail asap!
