Giveaway #4 for Get Caught Reading Month!

I hope you’re joining us in celebrating May: National Get Caught Reading Month!

Reading Quote

Reading is a solitary activity, but there’s no reason we can’t do it in public. In fact, it’s a great thing to do in front of other people because it reminds others to pick up a book and exercise their brains!

 In celebration of Get Caught Reading Month, we are having a giveaway on the blog, right here right now!
The prize this week is an audiobook copy of my book Wasted Justice.

Wasted Justice Audiobook

To enter for your chance to win, leave a comment at the bottom of this blog post telling me:
What was the first mystery novel you ever read?

Last week’s winner is Mary Sweeney. Congratulations, Mary!

I love any book — especially a mystery — that reminds children that reading is an adventure — something that’s great for us adults to remember, too!
