The Little Things Newsletter #232 – Week Six Giveaway


This post may contain affiliate links. Please read my disclosure policy.

Ohio 10-15

Welcome to the weekend, my friends! Guess what??? Our chickens finally gifted us with some eggs! So much excitement over here this week. I can hardly wait until the rest of the hens stop freeloading out there. We’re all very excited about an abundance of eggs.

GIVEAWAY CLOSED Today, for the sixth week of the 12 Weeks of Christmas Giveaways, I’m giving away a Kindle Paperwhite. I switched from traditional books to my Kindle paperwhite over 5 years ago and I’ve never looked back.

For the most part, I use my library to borrow books online in addition to watching for Amazon sales and saving all my gift cards for books. I’m all about getting my hands on as many books as possible. And to make your reading life even more fun, I’m adding in a $50 Amazon Gift Card to help load your new Kindle up and get your started.

To be entered, leave a comment on THIS BLOG POST telling me about one of your favorite books, or a book you’ve been wanting to read. The winner will be selected on Tuesday, November 10, 2020 at 11:59pm EST.

Here’s the lucky winner’s comment:

AND there’s a BONUS GIVEAWAY happening over on Instagram this week! If you are in the Columbus area (specifically within driving distance of Granville, OH – because I love my awesome village and want to share some fun) you can leave a comment on THIS INSTAGRAM POST and enter to win a $100 gift card to Snapshots Lounge. (I recommend Luke’s Sinful Snack – my version is pictured on Instagram, The Cuban or The Creep sandwiches, and pretty much any chef recommended special.)

ON THE BLOG this week: Salty bacon, tender sweet potatoes, and caramelized Brussels sprouts are combined in this fantastic side dish. Roasted Sweet Potatoes with Brussels Sprouts and Bacon are pure awesomeness from start to finish.

Everything you love about a fully loaded baked potato is tucked into this rich and creamy Baked Potato Soup. There are fluffy bites of baked potato in every bite.

Pumpkin Spice Waffles are a fall favorite with my whole family. Topped with my grandmother’s Waffle Sauce, this is a breakfast or brinner that we all look forward to.

What I’m CRAVING: This Chocolate Caramel Toffee Cake over at Curly Girl Kitchen caught my eye this week and it sounds incredible. And this Zuppa Toscana (Creamy Sausage, Potato, and Kale Soup) from The Food Charlatan looks absolutely mouthwatering.

My FAVORITE THINGS this week are these 2020 t-shirts. I ordered them for my guys for Christmas to wear with their new pajama pants and I can’t wait to see their faces. (And yes, I’m safe to share this with you here, because I’m pretty sure there isn’t anything my teenagers are less likely to read than their mom’s weekly newsletter.) 

What I’m READING: About Your Father and Other Celebrities I Have Known by Peggy Rowe. After reading Mike Rowe’s book earlier this year, I knew I needed to get my hands on his mom’s book. He definitely inherited her ability to tell a great story. I couldn’t put this book down and I found myself cracking up laughing more than once.

What I’m WATCHING: I started watching the first season of Chuck the other day and so far, I like it. I really like waiting to watch a series after it’s complete. Here’s hoping this is a good one. Have you watched this one?

“The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.” – Lamentations 3:22-23

Wishing you a beautiful week full of little things that make you smile!

    WIth caring for m elderly ill brother, I am trying to find a way to relax, destress, and take care of me. I have never used a Kindle, but I would love to be able to have that and relax without the bulkiness of a paper book. I love mysteries, history and Danielle steele Books, crazy huh. Perhaps my name can be entered in the drawing Thank you.

  2. Patsy Nix says

    Hi Mary! So happy to hear your chickens are finally producing! I love anything historical fiction (Philippa Gregory is one of my favorites) and my guilty pleasure is time travel books (like the Outlander series). Keeping my fingers crossed for another great giveaway!!!

  3. Jacquelyn says

    One of my favorite books is Sunset Beach by Mary Kay Andrews. She writes the most amazing “beach reads”! I always make sure I have one of her books to read when we go to the beach every summer. The next one on my list to read written by her is Hello Summer. I would love to be able to read it on a new Kindle Paperwhite and use the gift card to make sure I have plenty of books on standby! Thank you for the great giveaways!

  4. Gayle Durkin says

    Mary is one of my most favorite food bloggers and I have made many of her recipes with great success. Next to being a foodie, I read like a maniac to decompress at the end of a day. I must say it is hard to select one book that I love but it’s easy to say I adore any and all of the Louise Penny books. I am currently reading her most recent release “All The Devils Are Here”. Her writing is wonderful but her characters always keep me feeling like I live in Three Pines, her fictional village where many of her novels take place and the wonderful Gamache who solves the mysteries there. I always encourage friends to start reading her books and even my 3 daughters have started reading her books and love them. Even Louise Penny is someone you can’t help liking because she is a lovely, down to earth person with great talent.

  5. Connie says

    Love your blog and thank you for sharing your life and recipes with us! I love Linda Costillo books. I have read every single one of her series about our heroine, Kate Burkholder. She is a former Amish turned Police Chief of the very same Amish town, she grew up in. I am currently reading “Outsider”.

  6. Sharon Schmidt says

    My favorite book genre is thriller/mystery, but when I need something light to give me nuggets to think about, I read Elizabeth Berg. Her books are delightful.

  7. Linda Marie Fuller says

    Actually, thanks to your initial recommendation, I am all about Jan Karon’s little town of Mitford. Amid the craziness of the past few months, and especially the past couple of weeks, it’s been just a joy to escape with Father Tim and Cynthia and so many delight characters – human and canine!

  8. Cindie says

    I am almost finished with The Vanishing Half, Brit Bennett and would highly recommend it. Waiting anxiously to get my hands on American Dirt and White Ivy. I’m a former school librarian who loves books!

  9. Liz Picone says

    Good morning…the receipt for the sweet potatoes and brussel sprouts looks amazing. I love to read and have considered switching to a Kindle but have not taken the leap. I enjoy reading current fiction. I am just finished reading The Return by Nicholas Sparks.

  10. Neva says

    The most memorable book I’ve read is Lisa Wingates Before We Were Yours. It is truly a heart-wrenching story based on true events. The characters stay with you long after reading their story.

  11. Lisa Nelson says

    One of my favorite books is Don Quixote de La Mancha. I am looking forward to reading the Outlander book series.

  12. Betsy Davis says

    I absolutely loved the book “Sensible Shoes” by Sharon Garlough Brown! It a 4 book series but each book can stand alone. I’ve given it as a gift several times. One of my top suggested books to read.

  13. Linda Little says

    Not sure if this will count, but I love series books. Debbie Macomber Cedar Cove Series, Jan Karon Mitford series, Thomas Kinkade Cape Light. I get to know the characters and feels like I’m meeting new friends and keeping up with old. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!

  14. Hock Tricia says

    Oh, there are so many good books! My absolute fave is To Kill a Mockingbird. A recent fave is Where the Crawldad Sings.

  15. Kathy E. says

    Some fun links you’ve shared…I will check them out this afternoon!
    One of my favorite books I’ve read recently is Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens. It was unlike most stories I read, but I really enjoyed it! Definitely worth looking into!

  16. Stephanie Dembski says

    When I was younger I loved the v.c. Andrews books, about the weird family that hid the children and was dysfunctional at best.

  17. Pam says

    I wish i could speed read, I don’t think I will live long enough to read everything on my list.
    I have really enjoyed reading Andy Andrews, books.

  18. Laura Oblinger says

    I don’t think I go anywhere without a book! That means my favorites are always changing, but the Reese Witherspoon book club is consistently recommending the best books. Just read Fable and loved it!

  19. Christine Hoeksema says

    A couple of the best books I’ve read this year are Educated and The Sound of Gravel. Both are autobiographies and I am amazed at how both of these women overcame such challenging and desperate childhoods. Thanks for a great giveaway!

  20. Hollis Ramsey says

    No Picnic on Mount Kenya is the book I most love to read over and over again. It is the memoir of Felice Benuzzi, an Italian POW in WWII. It’s neither ”based on” nor ”inspired by.” He did it himself, and he himself wrote the account of it. He was an amateur mountaineer before the war. By that I mean he was a devotee rather than an inexperienced incompetent. But what he became during the course of his preposterous adventures in Kenya was a masterful chronicler of the events that befell him. I don’t want to give away what he did, but suffice it to say that it is both insane and uplifting. He is a master of descriptive prose. No Picnic on Mount Kenya is both the most beautifully written and the most exciting book that I’ve ever read. And whether or not I win this giveaway, I wish anyone reading this paean to Benuzzi’s absurd account to read it. Please, read it. You will be enchanted. You may even fall in love with it, as I have.

  21. Pam Schneider says

    An author I would like to read is Wendell Berry. I think the book is J. Crow although I think he has many books. He is Kentucky author, I think?

  22. Kathleen says

    One of my favorite books was The Winter Garden by Kristen Hannah. It kept me glued to the story the whole book and the ending actually provoked tears. How lucky we are to live in the present time.

    • Helen Cope says

      Incredible read! This is the book that got me started reading Kristin Hannah! What about The Great Alone?

  23. Paulette Davis says

    One of my favorite books is by Elly Griffiths. The Crossing Places. Her character is Ruth Galloway, who is a archaeologist. Her character is very human and her books keep you guessing on what comes next. Paulette Davis

  24. Linda L Mooney says

    Hi Mary,
    One of my favorite books of all time is Love Does by Bob Goff. He tells poignant stories of his life and adventures. He models courage, tenacity, faith, acceptance and love. This world would be a place of peace and other-centeredness if we all followed his example. Bob is a funny, fun-loving man who has made a great difference in the lives of people world-wide. My life has been changed by how he lives and leads. This laugh out loud book and its sequel, Everybody Always is good for the heart and soul.
    Linda Mooney

  25. Karen Popish says

    Love following you and your blog. Favorite book read recently was Where the Crawdads Sing. It’s so well written. The author is wonderful in creating beautiful and vivid visuals. Can’t wait for the movie!

  26. Pamela McCallum says

    Kindles were a great thing to have when traveling or even quarantining. I would love to have a new one.

  27. Ann McCormick says

    Happy Fall,

    I would love love to be the winner of the paper white kindle.. I’m the only one in my family that doesn’t have one.. both the kids and my husband really enjoy theirs..

    Ann M

  28. Christi Tedder says

    My favorite all-time book is “The Outsiders”. It allowed me as a kid from a poor family to understand it was ok to be me. It wasn’t better on the other side of the tracks. I rose above and set goals and achieved them and have a much better life for my kids now because of those goals and that book.

  29. Teresa Jennings says

    Thanks for the chance to win the KindlePaperwhite! I’m wanting to read Amazing Grayson, about a family with a special needs child. Thanks and have a great day!

  30. Christine Guest says

    Hi Mary
    I recently read Educated by Tara Westover. It’s is a wonderful story about resilience and love.
    I love your blog and recipes. I have had to go gluten free this past year so I’m always on the lookout for new recipes.


  31. Carol bennett says

    I read a lot, maybe a book every 2 days. Here is one I know you will love Mary, “Big Lies in Small Town” by Diane Chamberlain. A story of 2 artists one in the 30’s and a restoring artist in1980 of a picture that was stored by another painter.

    I love your blog because not only recipes to try but also books and items you use and like. Lots of good selections. I use our library down loads, book bub and amazon. My kindle is as an old old model. I use it when we travel.

    Great that you are getting eggs. Would love to have a few little ones here but how does not allow plus we have a lot of hawks that fly above.

    Keep up the good work. 10 0ut 0f 10.

  32. Jean says

    I have always loved reading ever since I was a child. I only read Kindle books and am embarrassed to admit how many I currently have in my TBR list ! I read a lot of genres but one of my favorite authors is Liane Moriarty.

  33. Sandy F says

    I’m on a wait list for The Growing Season, Sarah Frey’s personal story about establishing a farm produce business.

  34. Melody Lynch says

    Congrat on the eggs!!! And my all-time favorite book is ‘The Glass Castle’. I found this book so very interesting because it is all true!

  35. Caren Heinze says

    Hi Mary,
    I’ve been reading “Super Atractor” by Gabrielle Berstien. It’s about atracting the positive thing you want in your life, and why some of the not so positive things keep showing up in your life. It’s been a great read so far.

  36. Sabrina says

    I am reading Disciplines for the Inner Life. This is a very good devotional book that I highly recommend. I love your recipes and your newsletter recommendations.

  37. Debra Costanzo says

    I can’t pick a favorite book but I loved everything she wrote. Mary Higgins Clark. I love a good mystery. She will be missed. She passed away in January of this year.

  38. Connie says

    Good morning. I am reading Angora Alibi from Sally Goldenbaum’s The Seaside Knitter’s Mystery Series. Easy reading and some great recipes at the end of the book. I am enjoying reading the comments for more book recommendations. Thanks for a wonderful blog with so many great recipes and stories.

  39. Sheila McQueeny says

    I would love a Kindle Paperwhite! I would download Janet Evanovich’s soon to be released Fortune and Glory : Tantalizing Twenty-Seven. Her lighthearted series of bounty hunter Stephanie Plum are laugh out load and endearing.

  40. Carole Johnson says

    Hi Mary!
    I loved reading the first ‘Global Search and Rescue’ book by Susan May Warren. I’m eagerly awaiting the rest in this new series. It’s Christian fiction with intrigue, excitement, romance, and with great character development! They are easy, enjoyable reads – just what I need right now.
    Have a great day,
    Carole Johnson

  41. Carol says

    I am reading Stephen Sinatra’s ‘Metabolic Cardiology’ and recently finished Mastering Life Before It’s Too Late by Robert Morgan. I plan to read ‘The Carnivore Code’ by Paul Saladino; although time for reading is scarce these days with taking care of 94 year old mother and a husband who retired – limited leisure or alone time – Ha!

  42. Carla says

    Any book by Sandra Dallas! Another favorite is The Secret Keeper by Kate Morten. I never read as much as I’d like in the summer and am looking forward to longer evenings and time to escape with a good book! I just discovered your blog and it is a joy!

  43. Carla says

    Any book by Sandra Dallas! Another favorite is The Secret Keeper by Kate Morten. I never read as much as I’d like in the summer and am looking forward to longer evenings and time to escape with a good book. I just recently discovered your blog and it is a joy!

  44. Deborah G. says

    Hi Mary,
    Impossible to choose a favorite book since there are so many that I have loved. I just finished reading Alex Trebek’s autobiography ‘The Answer Is…’, next will be ‘His Very Best, Jimmy Carter, A Life’ by Jonathan Alter, and the audiobook “Tough Love’ by Susan Rice. I am also really enjoying The Wheel of Time Series and am waiting for ‘The Dragon Reborn’ Book 3 from the library.

  46. Cara says

    So many books, so little time! I recently discovered the Charles Todd series and have been captivated. It is about a Scotland Yard detective, having PTSD after WWI, and there are over 20 books now. Each one gives a look at various parts of England in the inter-war years and is just fascinating.

  47. Caro says

    I am currently reading Tim Keller’s book “Making Sense of God.” He does a terrific job of using thought and logic to present Christianity. And always, I have one of C. S. Lewis’ books at hand.

  48. Julia S says

    Can’t wait to try the waffle sauce. That will be the theme next weekend for breakfast! I too am a fan of Amazon and the public library for books. Looking forward to reading the Peggy Rowe book. Have a lovely week!

  49. Brenda Abbott says

    My all time favorite book (I think there was a movie as well, but I prefer to read) was called “Still Alice” by Lisa Genova. It really helped me to see my Mother in a different light when she was going through Alzheimers. I have recommended this book to everyone that has a loved one dealing with Alzheimers or Dementia. Thank for the chance at this great give away and the extra bonus to load it up.

  50. Lynne Bohman says

    I have just finished reading Return by Nicholas Sparks and have The Red Tent by Anita Diamant in line for my next read.

  51. Helen Wallinger says

    I recently read Sara’s Sacrifice, by Flo Parfitt. It takes place in Milwaukee, where Sara secretly begins meeting with other women who are forming an organization to get the right to vote. She finds out that living a double life requires hard choices and can be dangerous.

  52. Ellen McKinley says

    I loved the book 28 Summers by Elin Hilderbrand. It reminded of one of my most favorite movies called Same Time Next Year starring Alan Alda. It’s about two lovers who meet once a year for a weekend but have separate lives otherwise. It’s a heartfelt book of love and loss.

  53. Annie says

    When Things Fall Apart – Pena Chodron🙏🏻❤️
    Such a great book to help you move through difficult parts of life!

  54. Shirley Smith says

    A line from one of my favorite poems:
    “You may have tangible wealth untold;
    Caskets of jewels and coffers of gold.
    Richer than I you can never be–
    I had a Mother who read to me.”

  55. Rita Spencer says

    I just finished reading The Lost Girls of Devon by Barbara O’Neal. It is a wonderful story of the lives of 4 generations of women in Great Britain. I just love reading and enjoy hearing Mary talking about the books she reads. Barefeet in the Kitchen is my very favorite food blog. I have dozens of your recipes.

  56. Melissa Rodriguez says

    Hi, Mary!
    One of my favorite recent reads is The Coffee Bean by Jon Gordon and Damon West. It’s a quick, fun read.
    They share a wonderful message about choosing to respond positively to situations in a way that impacts others around you. I often tell my four teens, “ Be the bean!” 🙂
    Best wishes,
    Melissa 🙂

  57. Kate Patterson says

    I’ve really been wanting to read The Fifth Vital by Mike Majlak. It’s about his struggle with addiction and rising above. As a recovering addict, with 16 months clean, I try to read everything that is relatable. Mike’s perspective seems so interesting. Thank you for the opportunity!

  58. Libby Price says

    I would like to reread Little Women and there are other ones I want to read that are too many to list. I like reading the older books too

  59. Diane says

    A favorite book? “84, Charing Cross Road” by Helene Hanff. An epistolary book about books. Have read it I don’t know how many times and never get tired of it.

  60. Sue Anders says

    I enjoy your newsletter, and love the recipes! I had to comment when I saw you were giving away a Kindle. This has been on my Christmas wish list for several years. But, by the time we spoil our grandkids, “Santa” is out of money. 🙂

    I love to read, and always seem to have even more books I want to get. Some of my favorite authors have new books out: James Patterson, J.D. Robb and Michael Connelly to name a few. I’d like to get Greenlights by Matthew McConaughey, too.

    Thanks for the opportunity to add my name to the drawing. Fingers crossed!

  61. Kathleen Duncan says

    Anything new from Ken Follett. I’ve been reading historical romances, so a historical novel would be great.

  62. Karen Oliver says

    I love to read and mostly get my books from the local Library Book Sales. With the Covid 19 virus the sales have stopped, so I find myself trading books with friends. We just leave the books on each other’s porch to avoid contact. Tricky but necessary right now. I want to read Coast to Coast Murders by James Patterson and Return by Nicholas Sparks. I read many varieties of books and they are great stress relievers. This giveaway is a great idea and I am sure anyone that wins will just love receiving the Kindle.

  63. Carol Dee says

    My favorite book is Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand. It is a World War II book about Louis Zamperini. A story about survival, resilience and redemption.

  64. Wendy Hunter says

    Most recent fabulous book read was The Invincible Summer of Juniper Jones by Daven McQueen. About a younique young lady looking for someone to adventure with. Covers heart warming friendships. Race. Discrimination. History. A must read!

  65. Annie Saladino says

    Waiting to read The Lions of Fifth Avenue. As of today only 30 or so people ahead of me on the library Hold list.

  66. Jerry Wainfeld says

    A book recommended to me by a library clerk was William Boyle’s “A friend is a gift you give yourself”. It blew me away, with great characters and the boroughs of NYC. I went on to read 2 more of his since then. This is the book I tell people about when they ask for my recommendation.

  67. Amy Lindman says

    I like using my local library to checkout books on my Kindle. I just finished reading The Book Of Names by Kristin Harmel. I enjoyed reading it.

  68. Lois ALOE says

    One of my favorite books is The Girl Who Wrote in Silk by Kelli Estes. It is a beautifully written and touching story. Thank you for a chance to win the giveaway. So glad to hear your chickens are delivering! Lois

  69. Maggie Yoder says

    A book I really enjoyed was American Dirt by Jeanine Cummins. Looking forward to the new Lee Child book which should be coming out any day.

  70. Cecile VanTyne says

    An old favorite that I revisited this year was Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier! I actually read it over the summer and then was delighted to hear that Netflix remade the movie so it was a win/win! I’d be so grateful to have a Kindle…thanks for the chance!

  71. Sharyl W. says

    I downloaded this book yesterday. Only 11 pages. Written by my SIL’s cousin. Planning on reading it today! Sisters, by Arthur Herbert.

  72. aketch says

    I just read American Dirt by Jeanine Cummins. Although widely criticized, it was an interesting read from cover to cover. I also recently purchased Czech Cookbook, which is a cuisine I am trying to learn.

  73. Jane .Quinn Kondelik says

    “Five Smooth Stones” is an oldie but a joy to read and reread. Might be hard to find but well worth the effort. More recently “The Art of Racing in the Rain.” Loved it and have recommended to many. Could to name many, many more but these were the first two to come to mind.

  74. Kristen says

    I love historical fiction, esp those set in World War 2. The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society is one my favorites. I’ve also been enjoying the Mitford books which I started on your recommendation. I’d love to win a Kindle!

  75. Monica Archer says

    I save most of the books you recommend on my wish list and have read many of them. I have been getting my books from the library.

  76. Mary Spickler says

    Love your blog! Looking forward to reading Peggy Rowe’s book :About Your Father and Other Celebrities I Have Known. Loved the book her son wrote! Also entering my name in your drawing.

    Mary (my name too)

  77. Pat Clark says

    Who would have thought at 61 years of age I would be looking to read a book on a tablet, of all things! I’ve been holding off catching up on the Stephanie Plum series, as they are such a delight I tend to binge read and nothing else. It truly is a laugh-out-loud experience and that is a rarity these days so that’s what I would read on my new Kindle.

  78. Chris J. says

    I’d like to read this book…”All the Light We Cannot See: A Novel” by Anthony Doerr…I’ve read some excerpts from the book…

  79. Chris J says

    I’d like to read Anthony Doerr’s book “All the Light We Cannot See: A Novel” I’ve read some excerpts seems interesting…

  80. Pat says

    With 2020 being what it is, I’ve chosen to read books that have happy endings, are uplifting or funny. Recently I read “The Girl Who Could Read Hearts” by Maysonave. Though not a book where you smile all the way through, it was heart warming and perfect for this year.

  81. Mandy S. says

    I love reading mystery thrillers and just discovered Harlan Coben over the summer. He has a lot of books but I have only read Run Away and The Boy from the Woods. Both are really good. I also read When Life gives you Pears by Jannie Gaffigan. It’s her journey through being diagnosed with a brain tumor and having a busy career, being a wife to a comedian and mother to 5 kids.

  82. Sharon Lynn Wolfe says

    Thank you Mary. I have been getting and saving your newsletters for quite a while. I love these recipes, I wish I did live nearby for the bonus giveaway. Thanks for the chance…

  83. Missy A says

    I am currently reading A Heart Like His by Beth Moore. This is my very first Kindle book! I am really liking it. I was a die hard “have a book in my hands” person, but I broke down and loaded the Kindle app and I really like it!

  84. Dottie says

    I just finished American Dirt. Very intense. Shed many tears while reading this book. I am now reading A Time For Mercy/Grisholm book. One of my all time favorites is Where the Crawdads Sing. Would love to win the Kindle.

  85. Marianne Stana says

    I would love to have a chance to win a Kindle. I love to read, always have a stack of books to bury my nose in. I do travel some and will be helping my daughter in Spain for long periods, so having a Kindle would make it easier than hauling heavy books. I want to read Rebecca, that’s next in my list. I highly recommend How to Be an Antiracist, very thought provoking.

    Thanks for the opportunity

  86. Cheryl Pryor says

    I would LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to win the Kindle. The last book I read just came out a few weeks ago, A New Breed #2 in the Daughters of Destiny Diaries series. We plan to travel RV style in the coming days and a kindle would be a great way to “pack” a few books to go.
    Thank you for the Lamentations verse. Wonderful way to finish off your notes.

  87. Marie Stivers says

    I am currently reading Loving Eleanor by Susan Wittig Albert. Learning so many things I never knew about her and her life.
    I would recommend it.
