5 Minutes for Books — Hachette Book Group Blowout

by Jennifer Donovan

I don’t have an actual review today, but boy do I have a giveaway that you are going to love! If you are hungry for reviews, I hope that you will check in with 5 Minutes for Books, the site, each day. We are building quite a community of booklovers there (or those looking to expand their reading habits), and we are so pleased with every comment, suggestion, and contribution that we get.

Hachette Book Group has offered five of you the following ten books from their collection. If you’d like to win, just leave a comment saying which book interests you most. If you are sending kids off to school at this time of year, now is the perfect time to indulge your hobby of reading. We have had fabulous weather this week as well, so I’ve enjoyed several hours sitting on the driveway reading while my son is playing or while I’ve waited for my daughter to get off the bus.

In this collection of books we have something for every taste.
