Win 2 Books or Amazon Gift Card - open Internationally!

Okay - thought I should do a formal post on this and clarify everything. I am having a giveaway for anyone who votes for my friend Shelley McCarthy. She is trying to win some money to go towards au pair expenses. She is the mother of twin boys and she lost her husband to cancer last year. She has returned to school and that is the reason for the au pair. You can vote DAILY here.

After you vote, come back here and just leave a comment - I am going to leave the sticky post at the top until the contest is over to remind everyone to vote DAILY!

This contest is open internationally! If the winner is from U.S. or Canada, they will get to pick 2 books from the list below - If the winner is not U.S./Canada - then they will win a $25 gift card to Amazon to choose their own book(s).

So What Are You Waiting For?   VOTE
(If you voted at the other post - those will be added in to the final count for the drawing.)

This giveaway ends June 15th so you could have a ton of entries by then! Please leave your email address with your comment.
