Join Pinay Mommy’s First Book Giveaway!! (CLOSED)


Since I will be celebrating my second year of being a blogger this coming November 2009, I have opted to conduct several contests to celebrate the two wonderful years of having new experiences, new friends and a new way of earning money from home.

So for the first blog contest, I am going to conduct a book giveaway! This book giveaway is open to all Philippine residents or from other countries with Philippine addresses. I will be giving out two books to two lucky winners!

OK, why books? Because I adore books! And I believe books are the most ancient way of learning while having the luxury to relax and enjoy the moment. Anyway, I myself am a book lover. Though I don’t read novels and such but I love reading books on parenting, marriage, personal finances, making money, spirituality, about God and more.

Beautiful BathroomSo, what are the books am I giving away? The first book that I am going to give is Blogging from Home by Janette Toral. When I started blogging, I was really walking in pure blindness! It took me a lot of months to learn the ropes. Then after reading Blogging from Home, I said to myself, why was I not able to read this before? It would have been easier to start blogging! So, if you want to start and learn about blogging or if you want to share this to your family or friends to help them start in the world of blogging, join my book giveaway now and you might win a copy!

Beautiful BathroomThe second book is Find Real Happiness by William Gracian. He shares 10 power (but practical) secrets to fully enjoy life. The will help you answer the following questions: What are the secrets to real and lasting happiness? Where can you find happiness? Can you be happy by being rich and famous? Can you be happy by looking young and fabulous? Or can you be happy by becoming big and powerful? So, is you want to know the secrets of finding real and lasting happiness or share them with your friends and family, join my book giveaway now and you might win a copy!
