It is Sunday again, so it’s time for my third give-away for this holiday season. Today I am giving away two copies of Barack Obama’s bestselling memoir A Promised Land! [Unpaid ad]
It is not a children’s book as some of you may rightly point out. True. But it is also true that it does serve as an inspiration to you and your kids to see where curiosity and an early instilled love of reading can lead. The memoir beautifully shows that you need to dream big and never give up hope, and that democracy is a work in progress that needs everyone’s dedication and involvement, day by day.
But I did find refuge in books. The reading habit was my mother’s doing, instilled early in my childhood–her go-to move anytime I complained of boredom […] or when I had to accompany her to the office because she didn’t have a babysitter. Go read a book, she would say. Then come back and tell me something you learned.Barack Obama, A Promised Land
Part of the argument I made to Michelle before running for president was that if I pulled it off, kids all over the world would see themselves and their possibilities differently. And that alone would be worth it.Barack Obama, A Promised Land
The memoir is such a treasure. Not only is it uplifting and superbly written, but also an endless source of inspiration on many levels. To put it simply, it will provide you with one of the most enjoyable reading experiences of the year. So don’t miss out on your chance to win one of the two copies here! I’ll add a lovely owl-shaped bookmark for each winner, because even though A Promised Land is hard to put down, it also has 751 pages. So you will probably need to take breaks every now and then.
