Carry On, Warrior is the kind of book you’d get a little anxious about if you lent her out. Don’t hurt her! Don’t crinkle her pages! Don’t read her too quickly! Don’t let her just sit there on YOUR bookshelf when she could be just sitting there on MY bookshelf. And DO NOT LOSE HER. She’s just the kind of book where your heart starts palpitating when you think of the fact that she’s in the hands of another. You’d start missing her, because she’s like a dear friend. She holds your secrets and she knows you so well.
But she’s also the kind of book that you want ALL THE PEOPLE to read. The one you want to throw at people and force everyone to sit down and read. The kind of book you want loan out to anyone who will take it. The kind of book that makes you pray for your friends as they read it, so that they would receive it a feel refreshed and understood. The kind of book you hope they dog ear and highlight and rip out the pages they want to keep forever. The kind of book where you’d want the pages to be salty with their tears. And get those texts that are like I LOVE THIS BOOK THANK YOU FOR HER.
You might be able to tell that I have some strong feelings. And the good news is, you get a chance to win your own copy of Carry On, Warrior right now. I know, IT’S EXCITING. And all you have to do is leave a comment! I KNOW! Easy, right?
So to enter, leave a comment, any comment, considering that nice comments are preferred, on this post. You need to leave your full name and an actual email address to enter.

The winner will be picked randomly and emailed for address shipping information (or if you live in NYC I will hand deliver her!)

It’s less than $12 on Amazon. Less than a movie ticket. And you will treasure her. Or maybe if you bug me enough I’ll share my copy. BUT YOU BETTER LOVE IT.
