We've given to a number of charitable causes in 2008. I haven't purchased Ruby Among Us yet, but it's on my list for 2009. I've purchased about 10 Christian music cd's this past year. I bought three books in Nov., but not positive that I bought one in Dec. Thanks for entering me, this is a cool contest! I got to sit next to Tina Ann at the ACFW book club signing at the MOA and she's a sweetie. I definitely plan on buying and reading her book, it looks SOOOO good! Miralee Ferrell

Mea Culpa everyone!

I didn't make it clear enough that you need to click over to Tina's site to leave a comment. I wrote to all of my commenters individually to do this, and also posted the comments myself on Tina's blog with an explanatory note. If for some reason I'm chosen as the winner for posting those other comments, I will of course immediately notify the poster and direct Tina's crew to send the prize to her!

Sorry, everyone. Merry Christmas!

I'm sorry...I've been tired from our two wk long, drug out move, and probably didn't read your instructions carefully enough. Thank you so much for posting my comment on Tina's site and I apologize for the inconvenience. Miralee
