Giveaway time!

I have a free Reader's Digest subscription up for grabs!

The rules:
1. Sorry, my international friends--this can only go to a U.S. resident.
2. Post a comment, any comment at all. I personally think you should post a haiku (poem of three lines--5 syllables in the first line, 7 syllables in the second, five syllables in the third) about why you want this subscription. But that's purely for my entertainment because I like silly poetry. The winner will be chosen randomly.
3. Tell friends, enemies, frienemies, family members, and blog readers about this. I only have one subscription to give away, but if someone you refer wins, I'll send you some of the super-yummy peanut butter chocolate chip cookies I've been making lately.

So click that comment button--and good luck!

Winner will be chosen sometime Sunday!

Here's my Haiku:

Something I can read
A perfect mental escape
Give away from Beth


Oh what fun!

I used to think I was dorky because I was a Reader's Digest fan ... oh wait, we already established the nerd-bond we have, right?

The poetry gene is one that I am lacking though!

Haiku:

Digest memories
"Humor in Uniform" and
"All In A Day's Work"

Just when I thought you'd made my day-
by having this really cool giveaway
I see you'd prefer the comment as a haiku-
but since I don't know how-hope this will do :)

have a great weekend! (and it's true, I never understood that haiku stuff, even in school! must be the syllables thing I can't get figured out...)

My husband Donal
Rolls his eyes that I like it ...
I read anyway.

I know this doesn't count as another entry, but I couldn't help myself.

Have you seen Mad Men?
On TV - A & E.
Mentions the Digest.

It's set in '60.
Readers Digest just published
That cigarettes kill.

With slogans and sheen:
"Be a man! Smoke Lucky Strikes!"
The ad-men prevaiil.

All abridged books read
like life in these United States
Digest but don't taste

Oooohhh...I absolutely, positively LOVE Readers' Digest. My parents and grandparents all got it when I was a kid and I still read it whenever I get the chance.

Lots of magazines
But none bring memories like
Bathroom read RD

Not good at poetry, but I love magazines! Thanks for the giveaway!

Hmmm...let me give it a shot:

Reading is my real love.
Blogging is my fun hobby.
Help me find some love.

Weak, I know. I'm not a poet but at least I know it.

Mel said...

Is reading a sin?
I still pray that I do win
Even if it is.

:o)

How's THAT for someone who hasn't written Haiku since Jr High?!

Bri said...

I'll write this for you
If I can get cookies too
For referring me

*Check out the haiku on my blog, mamabris5armybrats.blogspot.com*

Anna said...

The digest I would like
Too cheap to buy my own one
My poem not good

Amy said...

Totally love RD, though I may be inching my way toward needing the large print edition!
