Mind Candy Review: Chasing Harry Winston - Spring Book Swapaway!

I realize that the days of "spring break" is gone for most of you (and me, too - waaaaaah), and that time is a commodity, but don't you just love to be able to vege out on the couch/lawn chair/beach chair/blanket with a good read every now and again?

I started thinking about the fact that summer will be upon us soon, which also means that a ton of new "chick lit" books will be released soon, too! Yeah!!! I reflected back on my fav read from last year - Chasing Harry Winston by Lauren Weisberger (the author of The Devil Wears Prada). Have you read it? If not, you should!

I really enjoyed this book (as did several of my friends who borrowed it) for a number of reasons. One - I like a good book about capable women. Two - I enjoy reading something fun, that makes me giggle, doesn't necessarily make me think too hard, and let's me escape for a while...CHW fits this bill. Three - there are three main characters facing different choices and experiencing different adventures, foibles, happiness, and sadness. Four - which means there are THREE different love stories! Five - all three characters are flawed (I can relate!), but you somehow want to see them succeed!

So, in the spirit of sharing and wanting all of YOU to have the opportunity to enjoy this book, I am proposing a GIVEAWAY of sorts...or maybe we'll call it a Spring Book Swapaway! Comment below by next Thursday, April 9, and tell me YOUR favorite spring or summer read and I'll randomly select one person to receive Chasing Harry Winston! All I ask is that you become a follower over there on the right hand side! And, if you want to swap your favorite book, I'd love that, too!

What do you think? Wanna swap?

PS - ring #2 on the book cover makes me SALIVATE!!! Oh who am I kidding, I SUPPOSE I'd take any of them...

Ooooh! I haven't read it but LOVE Devil Wears Prada, so I'm sure I'd love this one, too.

I could definitely be in for a little book swap. Most, okay all, of my books are of the "hot pink" variety. ;)

I am currently reading another Lauren Weisberger book, Everyone Worth Knowing. I love how this author thinks! As for a book swap, what a great idea! I just need to tear myself away from my laptop long enough to do something other than blog and blog-hop, and search and browse. :D ~Arleen

I read everything, and usually don't have a favorite. But I did enjoy books by Sandra Dallas, Debbie Maccomber and Jan Karon. AMONG many more. My favorite by Sandra Dallas is "The Pickle Persian Club." FUNNY Book.

Love your blog. Fun to stop by.
It's nice of you to offer a giveaway.
Have a good day.
