Reader’s Digest Book Giveaway

While I was growing up, my parent subscribed to the Reader’s Digest. When I was in grade school, I loved that magazine because it had coupons. Mom would let us rip them out and take them to the grocery store. The store gave us cash for the coupons.

The value of the coupons ranged from 5 to 10 cents. We felt lucky if we happened upon a 15 or 20 cent coupon. We felt we had hit the jackpot. We were rich! Of course we promptly spent the money on candy.

When I was in junior high, I loved the magazine for the jokes. Laughter, the Best Medicine were my favorite ones.

In high school, I loved the Word Power section. By that time, I was a voracious lover of words and was interested in expanding my vocabulary and learning new words.

I still love the jokes and learning new words. (I’m finding that in my current stage of life, I know most of the words in Word Power!) I also love their articles and abridged books.

So I was thrilled when the fine folks at Readers’ Digest contacted me and asked if I would be interested in having a give away. Would I? Would I? How could I resist?

So, to celebrate 90 years of publishing “reads of lasting interest,” Reader’s Digest is letting me offer the book Treasury of Joy and Inspiration: Our Most Moving Stories Ever as a giveaway.

This book is chock-full of essays and true stories by some of America’s most famous authors and thought leaders. These stories will inspire and uplift and touch your heart.

In this volume, you will:

  • Find out how a mysterious gift forever changed author James Michener’s life in THE CHRISTMAS PRESENT.
  • Experience a truly powerful life-changing moment in Christopher Reeve’s DECISION.
  • Let actor George Burns make you feel like you’re dancing on air in SHALL WE DANCE?
  • Find encouragement and hope in Dwight Eisenhower’s essay: AN OPEN LETTER TO AMERICA’S STUDENTS.
  • Go looking for true peace and happiness as Barbara Walters takes you IN SEARCH OF HEAVEN.
  • Get ready to see the whole world anew as Helen Keller imagines what it’d be like to only have THREE DAYS TO SEE.
  • Marvel at the healing power of laughter in Billy Crystal’s amazing true story: MY FATHER AND ME.

    Reader’s Digest was a favorite magazine for our whole family while I was growing up. The nice things is that the articles are short and can be read when I only h ave a small snippet of time.

    I keep a Reader’s Digest in the car and pull it out read and re-read . It stores nicely and passes the time when I have to wait when picking up the grands from school or practices.

    I loved that little magazine too. My mom was a subscriber. I also remember “Humor in Uniform.” My dad was on Normandy Beach on D-Day so I always held a respect for service people and was glad to see tribute paid to them in this way.

    I have subscribed to the Reader’s Digest for many years. I enjoy the articles, stories and jokes. I don’t do very well on the WordPower, but I try to incorporate the new words and meanings into my mind and vocabulary. The Reader’s Digest is an educational tool.

    My parents raised me on the Readers Digest and I always loved the humor as well as information. When I travel, I always tuck the Readers Digest into my bag so I’ll have something lightweight and interesting to keep my attention off of the time we spend waiting. Then, when I’m done reading it, I will leave it for someone else. I figure that even if it’s left in another country, some one else will enjoy it too.

    What a wonderful gift! I would love to read some of those stories and share them with my granddaughter. For me Readers Digest was closely associated with both sets of grandparents. My own parents didn’t get Readers Digest and I loved to go to my grandparents and read theirs. Another wonderful reason to go to my grandparents!

    I always love the Laughter, The Best Medicine section. But I have memories from my teen years of reading their abridged books and getting so into the book that I would stay up half the night just to read.
