Works for Me Wenesday: Reading to Destress

For those of you reading me for the first time. I am a solo parent so getting out etc to destress is out of the question for me so what do I do instead? READ

For me reading is a great cheap escape. I love to read! What are my sources for books? First the local library, then Value Village, then I belong to two great sources for Canucks to get free books. First is the First Look program offered by Harper Collins and the other is the Harper Collins Reading Club on Facebook.

This week I finished reading Laura Lippman’s newest novel Another Thing to Fall. This book I got for free through the Reading Club. I really enjoyed the book and having gotten it for free just made it better.

One of the other ways I get free books is contesting….

So do you want a great spring destressor? A FREE Book? I am having a blog contest this month… 4 reads are up for grabs…all I got either cheap or free over the last month from varying sources.

Which books?

Well woke up this  morning to a mountain of snow! I really have no place to put! So here I was lugging snow to my backyard. I have about 1/2 my walk done and decided that was enough before breakfast! So no going out today.

Well I promised to introduce all you partiers to those that I love on my blogroll:

1.Laura at Im an Organizing Junkie really does help me to think of organizing and because I live in a small space well it is something I have to think about. Join her for Menu Mondays!

2. Holyhas been a blog bud forever and I love to read her take on things. She is a fellow Canadian living in Washington! 

3. The Festival of Frugality is an ongoing carnival that lets me read all things frugal and I love it. 

4. Debi over at The Simple Mom is another blogger that I must read!

So they are just a few of the blogs that make my days full of great reads. Well in between shovelling today I hope to get to a few more parties!
