We’ve had a few light freezes lately, but last night came hard. If my tomatoes were strong through the first frosty nights, they certainly succumbed this time. I eat about one tomato a day when the plants are full, and now I don’t know what I’ll do without them. I don’t like buying them from the grocery store. Not only are they less tasty and fresh, they’re crazy expensive.
Onward, share-away! If you fancy yourself a reader, I would love for you to participate in a share-away with me. It’s not really a give-away, because the whole purpose is to keep the book moving through book lover’s hands. The lovely Carrie Mumford started this opportunity on her blog, and I ended up the chosen one. The book is Alice Bliss by Laura Harrington.
Here is what author Beth Hoffman had to say:
Heartbreaking yet edged with promise, Alice Bliss explores the wounds of war, love, and family bonds while illuminating the strength of young girl’s spirit. A stunning debut.
This copy of Alice Bliss is a part of Book Crossing, a site challenging people to read a book and release it to someone else or into the wild. I get a bit nostalgic when I hold well-travelled book, in awe of knowing someone’s hands touched this book, befriended a character and then closed it shut to gently send it off to meet someone new.
I am using this bloggity blog as a way to pass the book along, but you can also simply leave it on a bench with a note, share it with a friend, pass it along to a lonely looking salesclerk… anything to insure Alice Bliss is not collecting dust on a shelf.
So please comment and I will randomly draw a person and send Alice Bliss off to your hands! Will let ya know Monday.

PPS. On an unrelated note, have you noticed the vlogging sensation going around? Namely, two cool Maineiacs. Check them out if you have time:
