Book-lover's Christmas Giveaway Part 4--THE END!

For info on previous winners and other giveaways, see bottom of post.

This is it! Time has zoomed by, and this is the last week of our Book-lover's Christmas Giveaway! Man, we have had so much fun, haven't we? (If you're joining us for the first time, jump right in!)

This week, we're giving away a $25 Amazon e-card, and TWO 5-page writing critiques, one from Courtney and one from Yours Truly.

Concerning the critiques: We will not critique anything outside of the inspirational/Christian genre. I typically enjoy romantic suspense, and historical romance. Because I don't read much sci-fi (etc.), I probably wouldn't be the best one to critique that type of work. The critiques will be done in as constructive a manner as possible. We've learned so much from other writers that we'd like to share what we can with you. :)

The Booklover's Christmas Giveaway has been such a blessing to us and we hope to you as well! We can't say how grateful we are for your participation and support! We hope you are blessed abundantly this Christmas season!

Our question this week is this: What was your favorite childhood Christmas gift?
My favorite was probably a huge, 3 & 1/2' stuffed bear named Java...whom I later called Mr. Darcy. That was a special bear. I took him to youth camp as a teen and later made senior pictures with that loveable critter...Yes-way. And no, don't think I'm going to share that one on here, LOL.

My favorite Christmas gift as a child was a special doll. I really wanted for a long time a very expensive doll that I knew my mother could not afford. At the time thought material things were what really made me happy. A church group helped my mother to get it for me. My actual favorite Christmas gift that I look back on it now as an adult is time got to spend with my grandmother who I didn't see very often.

I received a doll named Patricia Ann which was the name of my beloved aunt. She passed shortly after I received it. My daughter now plays that doll 32 years later.

My last childhood gift was when I was twelve, and looking back, I think it was very symbolic of the transition I was entering. i asked for, and got a life size, lifelike baby doll. Sometimes, during the next couple years, I played with her off and on, fantasizing about what it would be like to be a mom. Her name was "Peep" and almost 40 years later, my son and his wife nicknamed my granddaughter Peep!

My favorite childhood gift was during WW ll was a doll in a little red trunk. one side inside was a place to hang clothes. You see we never got much for Christmas but had moved to Houston, Tx. so daddy could work in the shipyard. so one of my sisters and gotten a job so she bought me the doll and made it some clothes to hang inside. I was a very excited little girl. I was nine years old. Would be excited if I could win this gift card. Maxie > mac262(at)me(dot)com <
