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.
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.
