Giveaway: Chicken Soup for the Soul: The Multitasking Mom's Survival Guide

I admit that I try to do too much in a day, but I know I am not the only mother who tries to do this.  Honestly, I am not always successful in doing it, but I have to say it does not stop me from trying the next time.  I just wish I was just as dedicated in other aspects of my life.  I feel one of the most important thing for moms to know is that they are not alone and there are other mothers out there who are struggling and trying to do the exact same thing.

"Moms are the busiest people in the world! They juggle kids, husbands, jobs, housework, and more. These 101 stories from other multitasking moms will inspire and amuse the woman who does it all!

Moms do it all – they juggle kids, husbands, home and office…. This collection will inspire and entertain masters of multitasking with its 101 stories from busy moms like them. Filled with words of wisdom, lessons learned, funny moments and juggling success, this book will brighten any mother’s day."

No matter if you are a mom or if you are looking for a gift for a mother in your life I believe this would be a great addition to any moms home.  For myself I love reading and use it as a time to relax and escape and what is better then reading something that you can fully relate to!  Remember mothers day is coming sooner then you think and this would be a great surprise for that special someone.

The A-Z of C.S. Lewis Book Review

About the book:

A Complete Guide to His Life, Thoughts and Writings
Published to coincide with the 50th anniversary of C. S. Lewis's death, this complete guide covers all of Lewis' works, from his literary criticism to Narnia.
C. S. Lewis's work is widely known and regarded, but enthusiasts are often only aware of one part of his work-his children's stories and his popular theology; and yet he wrote so much more, including science fiction and literary criticism. This volume brings together all aspects of C S Lewis's life and thought. Arranged in alphabetical order, it begins with The Abolition of Man-written in 1943 and described as "almost my favorite"-to Wormwood, a character in The Screwtape Letters. This book will delight anyone who is interested in C. S. Lewis and wants to learn more about him, his thought, his works, and his life.

About the Author:

Colin Duriez was for many years a commissioning editor at Inter-Varsity Press UK. He has subsequently appeared as a commentator on DVDs of Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings, and BBC television's The Worlds of Fantasy. He is also the author of The Inklings Handbook(with the late David Porter), J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis: The Story of Their Friendship, and Tolkien and The Lord of the Rings, and has contributed to definitive reference works relating to Tolkien such as The Tolkien Encyclopedia(Routledge).

My Review of the Book:

Working in a library daily I come across tons of books, but I have to admit with many authors I might know their most popular work, but not all of their work.  Many books spread through word of mouth, but that does not mean the books you hear about are the only great ones the authors have written.  The A-Z of C.S. Lewis, gave myself a chance to be educated about a beloved author and I have to say there was a lot of information in this book that I had no clue about.

Although, I do have to say my favorite thing had to be having a resource available at my fingertips for any questions that myself or anyone around me might have.  I would have loved to have this book available when I was in University.  It would have made many easy assignments easier.  The other part I loved about this book is all the information about C.S. Lewis himself and those around him.  I felt as though I was getting to know C.S. Lewis as more then famous author, but as a friend of the family.  It was neat to see how his writing and living influenced one another and I believe fair to say even influence people still to this date.
