Barnes & Noble Gift Card Giveaway! | KidGlue

How would you like to win a Barnes & Noble gift card for $25 that is good in the store and online?
When you ask anyone what their favorite toy was when they were little, they will probably have to think about it, but everyone remembers their favorite childhood book. My favorite was the Laura Ingalls Wilder series.

Imagine the great memories you can make with your child when you lead them into the book store and allow them to pick out their very own book- any book they want in the whole store.

One lucky person can win the gift card by entering this giveaway before September 30th.

Good luck!

Pudgy Penguin Perusals: BBAW giveaway (US & Canada): The Day of the Flood by Margaret Atwood

Pudgy Penguin Perusals: The Day of the Flood by Margaret Atwood

From Amazon description: "The times and species have been changing at a rapid rate, and the social compact is wearing as thin as environmental stability. Adam One, the kindly leader of the God's Gardeners--a religion devoted to the melding of science and religion, as well as the preservation of all plant and animal life--has long predicted a natural disaster that will alter Earth as we know it. Now it has occurred, obliterating most human life. Two women have survived: Ren, a young trapeze dancer locked inside the high-end sex club Scales and Tails, and Toby, a God's Gardener barricaded inside a luxurious spa where many of the treatments are edible.

One book to giveaway. Last day to enter is September 27th. Sounds like an incredible story!!
