That's where this week's second giveaway comes in. Before you pick up that trashy romance rag, you might want to open up one of two autographed copies of Note to Self: 30 Women on Hardship, Humiliation and Heartbreak and Overcoming It All, a collection of powerful essays by women who have struggled and succeeded against the odds.
Conceived and edited by award-winning filmmaker, writer, director and producer, Andrea Buchanan, Note to Self includes stories from superstars like Sheryl Crow, Kathy Najimy and Mariska Hargitay. Buchanan also shares the stories of "regular" women, women who have been challenged and who have endured.
These stories speak to the intrepid nature of the human spirit and will touch the heart of any woman. You will laugh, you will cry and you will feel the wisdom of these women and tap into the strength we all possess.
That's what I call summer reading.
I'll run this giveaway in tandem with yesterday's. Both will go through the weekend. Leave a comment here or on Mama's Facebook page or tweet me (mamascup) and you're entered to win. It's that simple.
