The Help Giveaway

Over the weekend I finished reading The Help.






The book was on my reading list for a while but the waiting list at the library would never go down. I finally broke down and bought the it knowing I would have to read it before I saw the movie.


I loved The Help and can't wait to see the movie! I wish there would be another book to update on the characters, I always get so attached and actually wonder about a character's life and how it turns out. I also loved seeing my maiden name so much in the book even though that character is a total witch.



I am passing a copy along to one of you. Just leave a comment on this post. I will choose someone at 12 cst on Thursday August 4th!

I love this idea of recycling your reads... If I win I'll be sure to pass it along when I'm finished as well :)

Loved "The Help" Vanessa...read a friend's copy quite awhile ago. I was thinking of buying it myself to read again before the movie which I absolutely cannot wait for.

And while there will always be mean people in the world, I believe we have come a long way in how we treat people who work for us. I know I have always been kind and respectful when I have had people work for me. Why would you be any other way.

I loved The Help!! Can't wait to see the movie. My friend loaned me her copy to read and I must give it back. Would love to have my own.

Malia said...

Ooo I've heard such good things about this book/movie. Thanks for the chance.

I can't wait till the movie comes out too. I love all of the people in the movie so I hope they portray the book in they way it should be. I heard about the book a year ago when someone (a teacher I know) suggested it. So its been on my list for a while and when I heard they were making a movie of it, I decided to hold off on reading it till after I saw the movie b/c the book is always better. I would definitely pass the book on to my mom, mother in law, and a couple of friends. Nice idea!
