Firefly Lane Giveaway -- Such a Good Book!

I told you about the Celebrate Our Stories House Party I had last weekend and now I am bringing you the chance to win the book my guests read before the party. 
 Firefly Lane by Kristin Hannah

I read Firefly Lane while on vacation last Spring and enjoyed it very much. I couldn't put it down.  (So much so that I spent 2 hours finishing it even after a 15 hour day at one of the Disney World parks.)  It's a story of 2 girls with different background becoming friends as children and growing up together with ups and downs along the way.  That one sentence doesn't do the book justice.  Read the description from Kristin Hannah's website for a much better "picture" of the story.

My friend's are so super important to me!  I thoroughly enjoyed my "girl time" at my party last weekend.  This coming weekend I'm headed away for the night with 4 friends from high school .... actually I went to grade school with 3 of them.  (We can't possibly be old enough to have been friends for 28 years! GASP! )  Busy lives though mean that we don't get nearly enough time with friends.  I want to make a conscious effort to make more time for friends.
House Party sent me 12 hardback Firefly Lane books.  I had 11 friends here for my party.  That means that I still have one book.  Since I don't usually re-read a book, there's no reason for it to sit on my book shelf when one of you could get to enjoy it instead.

There are 4 ways to enter to win Firefly Lane.  Enter in more than one way to get more entries.
  1. Have a good friend that you want to re-connect with or just haven't made time for lately?  Have busy schedule full of work and family?  Call, email, write a letter to or make plans with a friend for some "me time." Leave a comment with a quick sentence about what you've done.

So that's 4 ways to enter.  Do any or all of them but be sure to leave me a comment for each thing you do! Entries will be closed on Sunday February 7, 2010.  The winner will be announced on Monday morning February 8th. ..... just in time for my next giveaway.
