It’s Official — Summer is Here!
Do you remember the public library summer reading club? For a nerdy girl who loved to read, it was the best part of summer vacation. My biggest problem was the ten book limit on how many books could be checked out at one time. Ten books is hardly enough when you are whipping through the Bobbsey Twins, Cherry Ames, and Nancy Drew series.
This summer, The Family Curator blog is trying something new: weekly reviews to lure you off to the chaise, the hammock, or the beach blanket with a good book, many with a genealogical or family history twist.
Weekly Book Review
Every Wednesday, I’ll be posting a short book review and often hosting a free book giveaway, beginning today, the First Day of Summer Wednesday 20 June, and running through the month of August.
Win a Free Book
All you have to do to enter the giveaway is either leave a comment after the review or Like the review on the Facebook post (one entry per name, please). I will pull names from both places and one name will be randomly selected to win the book.
Your name will stay in the hopper from week to week, so you will have more chances to win in the weeks to follow. The winner will be announced on Facebook and on The Family Curator so you can send me your name and address to receive the book.
If you’ve read the featured book, please add your thoughts or other recommendations.
First Featured Book: From the Family Kitchen
Gena Philibert-Ortega’s new book on discovering your family food heritage will be the featured review, posting later today. Stay tuned!
