BOOK GIVEAWAY #2: The Free State of Jones

Read.

 

Unable to read for days on end, I lay in a dark room imagining all the books yet to be read. It was awful, not being able to read. My mother, who loved to read, who read several books every week, lost the ability to read when the brain tumors showed up. She retaught herself how to write, but the reading ability never returned.

Reading sustains us.

Today’s Book Giveaway #2 is THE FREE STATE OF JONES: Mississippi’s Longest Civil War by Victoria E. Bynum. Put out by UNC Press, you can read all about the book here.

Did you see the movie?

This excellent read will appeal to anyone who loves the untold story of history. Civil War buffs in particular will be drawn to the thoroughness of this story.

To enter the drawing, just leave a note below. Good luck. And there is no limit on how many of these Giveaways you can sign up for. You can sign up for every book. The only restriction is that if you have won a book already then you may not enter the rest of the week.

Feel free to post and share on your Social Media accounts. Anyone is invited to partake. This is just to celebrate our love of reading.

I'd love to read the book. I loved the movie though it kept me up for many nights afterward. I am a lover of history, and most especially historical fiction when it comes to reading! Thanks for the opportunity!
