New Book Giveaway for overworked moms and those who love them: JUST LET ME LIE DOWN

This is a great book to encourage those who are hardworking moms. Life can get overwhelming and there are definitely not enough hours in the day to do all that needs to be done. Reading Just Let Me Lie Down by Kristin van Ogtrop, the editor of Real Simple magazine, assures you you are not alone.

There will be three - count em, three winners for this giveaway. If you're not a follower, please become one, post a comment and a way to contact you and that's it! You're in like flynn. Even if you're not a super busy mom, you can enter and give the book to someone who is.

The contest will end Friday March 5 at midnight.

 Open only to residents of the US or Canada. No PO boxes.

 Thanks to Anna Balasi from the Hachette Book Group for making this book available.

Kristin van Ogtrop knows she's lucky--fulfilling career, great husband, three healthy kids, and, depending on the hamster count, an impressive roster of pets. She also knows she is tired. Always.

Using stories and insights from her own life, she provides a lexicon for the half-insane working mom. Anyone who has left a meeting to race to the Halloween parade immediately understands van Ogtrop's definition of "Kill the messenger" as "The action you must take in order to forget about the office for a time--that is, to remove your Blackberry/Treo/iPhone/whatever from your person and store it as far away as your neurotic self will allow." Filled with essays, lists, and resonant observations, JUST LET ME LIE DOWN establishes van Ogtrop as the Erma Bombeck of the new millennium.
