Week 4--The Help

This week will bring to close our reading for The Help by Kathryn Stockett. We hope you are enjoying the book as much as we are!

This week's chapters are Chapter 27--34.

We'd like to announce that Theresa is the winner of our book giveaway! Theresa, please e-mail one of us to let us know if you'd like a free copy of Bossypants by Tina Fey (our next selection) or if you'd like to hang on to your freebie for a future book club selection!

The drawing took place the old-fashioned way. I wrote the initials for each entry on a tiny slip of paper, folded them in half, stuck them in a plastic onion holder (unused, by the way...it was the closest thing nearby!), shook it up, and had my dad draw the winner's name. Desiree and Sbaney had 12 entries each, Samantha had 8, and Theresa had 7. 

What did y'all think of the giveaway idea? Do you think we should do it again? The poll can be found on the top left sidebar and we'll keep this poll open until Friday at midnight. Please let us know if you'd like to continue trying to win free books!

When you're e-mailing us your discussion questions for our final week of The Help, don't forget to e-mail us (alisha.wordshakers@gmail.com or candace.wordshakers@gmail.com) your suggestions for our next book selection  poll, to be voted on during our time reading Bossypants by Tina Fey. The deadline for submitting your suggestions is Friday night at midnight. The poll will begin with Bossypants Week 1 and then we will have it available for voting until the end of Week 3 of Bossypants. We've already received a couple of suggestions so keep them coming!
