The results are in!

After a really tight race, but perhaps not as tight as the Men’s 4 X 100 relay last week, Moving Day is September 3rd won Literate Housewife’s first Creative TBR Photo Contest!  This photo was submitted by:

Lee Anne

Congratulations!  I will be sending you your $15 Amazon gift card via email very soon.

I would also like to thank everyone who participated by sending in photos and voting.  This whole experience was a lot of fun.  This was a lot of fun and it will have to be repeated in one form or another every year.

It is a great honor and privilege to be offered a slot in TLC Book Tour‘s first tour featuring Kathleen McCleary’s novel House and Home. TLC Book Tours was started by two the nicest bloggers out there, Lisa from Books on the Brain and Trish from Hey Lady! Whatcha Readin’? My copy of the novel arrived last week and I was so excited. It looks and feels so refreshing and relaxing. It’s my next book and I can’t wait get started.

My date on the tour is September 8, so bookmark this site and come back for my review and other fun tour-related stuff. You never know when you might find a chocolate on your pillow when you come to visit Literate Housewife. But don’t just stop on my date. I’m sure that there will be a lot of happening to make you feel at home at each stop along the way. Here is the full schedule:
