Book Club & Giveaway

I have no idea if this will work or not but I want to try something. A REAL FAT Book Club. Omygosh, I sound like Oprah. Well, anyway, I want to have a book club. I recently downloaded a Kindle for iPhone and suddenly I am reading again! In the bathroom...in the waiting room...over the stove...under the covers...I love it!

There's only one problem. I like to discuss what I am reading. And my husband doesn't really like to discuss. Or read. So I need you guys!

The March book will be a trial run. I don't know exactly how or if this will work. I am thinking that the main discussion will take place on the REAL FAT Facebook Page in the 'Discussions' section. I believe you can view this page without having a Facebook account but you can not comment without an account. In other words you will be able to read everything everyone else is saying but you won't be able to participate without a Facebook account.

More uncertainty--I'm not sure what the discussion will look like just yet. I guess I'm going to wait and see if an actual club materializes before I put too much thought into it :)

The March book will be: Made to Crave, by Lysa TerKeust (available in Kindle version for $9.99). I would like to give away a copy of the book to someone who is going to participate in the book club. Please leave a comment to be entered in the drawing. Anyone and everyone should be able to comment, even if you aren't a blogger. You can also email me: keeliesue@live.com if you have problems commenting. The giveaway will close Wednesday (tomorrow) at midnight so spread the word! I know that is a quick giveaway but we need to get started reading!

I just saw this on your FB page and then on here.
I'd love to join in the Book Club with you this month but I don't have the book myself yet and I'm in the UK, so don't know if it's ok for me to enter your giveaway. If it is I would love to please.
