Contest Time - The Good Father

Normally, I'd wait until I'm totally finished to post this contest, but I'm galloping along with this read and it's fantastic!! Joe Gallagher from Doubleday has graciously offered us 2 copies of this attention grabber to give away.  The publisher's blurb is on my original Monday Mailbox post. I'll be posting the final review when I announce the winners, but in the meantime, I'll give you some hints.

  • If you are a parent and ever had one of those Ah-OH moments of "my child couldn't possibly have done THAT!", and if you start this book, you will not put it down. 
  • If you are even semi-conscious in these days of Homeland Security and terror scares,and worry about government intrusiveness, and if you start this book, you will not put it down.
  •  If you've ever watched an episode of "HOUSE" on tv, and had difficulty following the wacky diagnostic thinking, and if you start this book, you will not put it down. 
 SO... since I started the book, and I'm having trouble putting it down, I'll just say we're going to make this an easy one.
Contest: No PO Boxes, US residents only.
ONE COMMENT ONLY...leave me a comment, tell my why you want to win, and leave me an email addee.
That's it. Deadline is April 7th, 11:59PM.
Good luck, Stay tuned and remember, no forms, no extras, just one comment. Random will pick.
Back to reading....(hope nobody comes into the library today....I'm on duty, and I want to finish this book!!!)
