20 Best Tips

A Box of Books Giveaway

Do you love free books? 

Every once in awhile I share the pile of books that I’m reading. Not all of those books fit on my shelf (that’s a good thing and a bad thing – grins), and I’ve been saving a box of them to give away to one of you all! 

Many of the books are in brand new condition, but a few others may have some underlining or an earmarked corner or two. A chunk of them are from my 2016 reading list, but others are ones that have been pulled off the shelf to make room for another book or two currently on my list. 

Here’s a list of what’s in the box – 17 books total (and a study guide for one). Hopefully one or more of these are on your list and you’d love to have them in your home – or to share with friends. 

To enter the giveaway, use the widget below to enter. Giveaway ends Tuesday, February 28th at 11:59pm and is open to those with a US mailing address only.
