I didn't know I was supposed to comment when I won a book, so I'm late in doing so!  I won "A Promise to Protect" by Patricia Bradley. I haven't yet had time to read it because I'm reading so many other books, and I want to read the 1st in the series first, but I'm glad I won it. :)

I won Laugh Out Loud Jokes for Kids by Rob Elliot. I couldn't find where to put the review for this (December hasn't appeared yet), so I'm putting it here for now. 

I posted this review on my blog http://wp.me/p2IVQi-SE and Wordpress sends it out to Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest, and Google+. I also posted this review on Shelfari, Goodreads, Amazon.com, Barnes and Noble, Books-a-Million, CBD, deepershopping, Chapters, LibraryThing, 

Good humor is a valuable commodity. Let me re-phrase that. Good clean humor is a valuable commodity. Clean humor is not as easy to find as you might think. Much of the humor of the past three or so decades is based on making fun of someone else or of other ideas. It capitalizes on someone's mistakes. It belittles and minimizes someone else's worth. To find good humor means leaving that base in the dust and finding things that are truly funny at no one else's expense. Even the definition of clean has variations and shades of meaning.

As a parent, when my children were young, I didn't want them to think that devaluing someone else was funny. Slapstick was fine, as well as play on words and incongruities. We loved all things animal humor. Those were our standards. This book contains a similar standard. It is written for young children, perhaps from 6-10 years. The content is squeaky clean. Many of the jokes date back to my childhood years with a few new ones sprinkled here and there. There are 126 pages of fun.

It is divided by chapters by categories:

Chapter 1: Questions and Answers
Chapter 2: Awesome Animal Jokes
Chapter 3: Knock Knock Jokes
Chapter 4: Tongue Twisters
Chapter 5: Some Things to Think About

One of the Question and Answers I've never heard before goes like this:

Question: What did the alien say to the flower bed?
Answer: Take me to your weeder.

Here's one from Chapter 2 I haven't heard before:

Question: Where do bees come from?
Answer: Stingapore and Beelivia

Do knock knock jokes make you groan?

"Knock, knock!"
"Who's There?"
"Everest"
"Everest, who?"
"Do we Everest from telling knock knock jokes?"

One parting shot:

"If a fly didn't have wings, would we call it a walk?"

Now, I found this is just one book in a collection. There are many more books just like this one. They came out with a new one in 2014 if you are looking for more. I recommend this to anyone who wants pure and simple humor for their children.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received a complimentary review copy of this book from The Book Club Network (bookfun.org) on behalf of Revell. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255: “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”

Review for The Brickmaker's Bride:

Brickmakers Ewan McKay and his uncle Hugh Crothers consider buying the brickyard belonging to Laura Woodfield's deceased father. Little do they know that it will not be a "clean sale." Laura, who as a young deb, should only concern herself with social niceties, will retain a keen interest in the performance and success of the brickyard. Add integrity, laziness, greed, shameless manipulation, trust in God, caring for the poor, political aspirations and societal expectations together; and you get a turbulent look at the re-establishment of a brick-making business. Will it succeed or fail? Given the mix of the characters' personalities, the reader is apt to want the business to do both!

Miller has done a tremendous amount of homework to be able to describe the brickmaking process so meticulously. At times, it seemed a lot of detail to take in. I absolutely loved the ridiculous relationship between Uncle Hugh and his ultra-controlling wife, Maggie. Tragic to see in real life, it was rather fun to read about. To me, the characters in this book give it life and breath, whether
we think about the brickmakers who were careless and had to be retrained, politically inclined Winston, or reserved Kathleen with her struggles against her sister. A book for the keeper shelves.

I won this book in a drawing at bookfun.org. in exchange for an honest review. I have posted this review on Amazon, B&N, Booksamillion, CBD, DeeperShopping, FamilyChristian, Goodreads, LibraryThing, with links to FB and Twitter, NovelCrossing, Parable, and Powell's.

Nora,

I simply want to enter the November GiveAway.  Am I too late?  I hope not.  Still learning here.

Nora,

I was thrilled to see that my name is on the list of winners for The Brickmaker's Bride! I have most of Judith Miller's books and I love them all! Can't wait to add this one to my library! Thanks so much!

I received a winning copy of A Bride in Store.  I was so excited to be selected as a winner!!!  

I set aside plans to read other novels and began A Bride in Store within 24 hours of receiving it!  A Bride in Store is a mail order bride story.   It is the second book in the series and set in Kansas.

Overall, I found it to be a fun read.  The end (final 50 pages) seemed to not mesh well with the beginning of the book.  It felt as if some of the information was added at a different time.  Please know I did enjoy the book and rated it four stars on Goodreads, but I did not find it to be as strong as A Bride for Keeps.  I look forward to what Melissa Jaegars offers next!

A very good book for your consideration!
DREAMING ON DAISIES BY MIRALEE FERRELL
A fabulous read about Leah, her brother Tom, Steven, Charlie and Florence. Steven comes to Baker City, OR to work in the bank where Charlie has his ranch mortgaged.  Charlie is a very difficult person because of his drinking. Florence is a very strong, dominant, no nonsense lady. So that's the set up for the story which unfolds in a page-turning story of loss, love, redemption, and remembrances. You'll really enjoy the writing style, character development, conflict resolution and Biblical values throughout. I enjoyed it immensely!
