So today is my "blogiversary".  This blog is 2.  It hardly seems possible.  I love the idea of a Hobbit Birthday.  In applying it here that means a give-away.  This time it's going to be a book.  As I was going through books recently I discovered that I have an extra copy of Cranberry Thanksgiving.  I have loved this book since I was a child.  Maggie and her grandmother live on a cranberry farm and invite two very different individuals to Thanksgiving Dinner.  Mr. Whiskers, an old sea captain and Mr. Lawrence, a dandy from the city.  It turns out the Mr. Lawrence is there to steal Grandmother's famous cranberry bread recipe.  Mr. Whiskers saves the day and there's even some forgiveness of Mr. Lawrence in the end (and the recipe itself as well).  So would you like to win?

Please leave a comment, you could tell me your favorite book from childhood.  If you don't have one, just leave a comment.  I have quite a lot going on just now so I'm going to leave this open for about a week.  Thanks for reading!

Is it bad that I can't remember my favorite picture book?

But I do remember my favorite MG/YA. "Are You There, God? It's Me, Margaret" by Judy Blume. I probably discovered it around age 10 and probably read it 50 times during my teenage years. It felt edgy and rebellious, but not too mcuh, because let's face it, I've never been very edgy or rebellious. :)

Thanks Jeanene!
No Jess, it's not! I remember books as I come across them as an adult for the most part.
