I’ve been blogging for over 7 years now. During that time, a number of publicists have asked me if I’d be interested in their clients’ books. Unfortunately, the time it takes me to read a book and write the review doesn’t typically work for me. I had good intentions of reading and reviewing the books when I was on vacation, but I simply don’t take enough vacations… or I have too many books. I can’t tell you how many books I have.
It’s time for me to part with these books. (My wife is doing a little jig as I type this. Little does she know it will take a long time before they are gone.) Each week (give or take), I will give a short, very “Lazy” review from a very quick skimming of a book. I’ll probably write it with some good-natured snark, because, well, it’s fun. (And I could be slightly jealous of the authors for getting their act together and writing a book.)
So how do you get your paws on these books? You leave a comment on my short review. The better your comment, the more entries I’ll give you. What qualifies as a “better” comment? I’m looking for something that gets my attention. Funny is good, but informative is even better. Also, please use a valid email address, because if you do not, I can’t contact to you if you win. I hate spam as much as you do and I’ll never share it with anyone else. I’ll try to be quick with announcing the winners (which will likely happen via Twitter and/or the next giveaway announcement.
Does that sound fair? If so, let’s get to
cleaning out my basement winning some books! We’ll start with the first book later today.

As the writer Dorothy Parker said, “The two most beautiful words in the English language are ‘cheque enclosed.'” I hope blogging affords good writers and readers such as yourself some compensation because you have an eye for important information we all need.

Oh, dear! I am over 30! I’m even over 40! In fact, I’m rapidly approaching 50! Is this a case of not being able to teach an old dog new tricks? There’s only 1 way to find out! I should read this book! (Hint hint)
