Love Books? Amish or Otherwise?

Are you a book lover? If so, today might be a lucky day for you!

Today, October 5th, is the “book bomb” day for Amish Peace: Simple Wisdom for a Complicated World. Revell Publishers is encouraging you to buy a copy of Amish Peace at your local bookstore or on-line. Then, just shoot off an e-mail where you bought it and your name will be entered into a drawing for a basket of books of Revell authors!

A sweet prize!

And to make it even sweeter, I am giving away two Amish (genuine!) cookbooks…the proceeds of which are donated to the victims of the Nickel Mines Schoolhouse shooting.

Above is a picture of the site of that very schoolhouse, which was razed ten days after the shooting (three years ago–October 2, 2006). I was fortunate enough (blessed is a better word!) to meet some of the families affected by the event.
Graciously, they gave me permission to share their stories in Amish Peace. A few of the families put together this cookbook. Part of the healing, I think.

And it is a wonderful cookbook! I use it often! The one that makes me smile is called “Boyfriend Impresser Bars.” (Isn’t that a breaking-the-stereotype title for an Amish cookie?! I teased the young Amish woman from whom I bought this cookbook and she turned a shade of plum!) Or how about the “Can’t Leave Alone Bars?” Doesn’t that sound enticing?!

So folks…today is the day! Go ahead…buy a copy or two of Amish Peace. Then e-mail me: Suzanne@suzannewoodsfisher.com) or amy@litfusegroup.com and your name will be put in a hat for the drawing.

Ahem. I mean, a bonnet.
