  1. I’m a Facebook fan (Sarah Emmerson).

  2. I’ll guess that Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe by Fannie Flagg is on one of those shelves.

    Please enter me in this giveaway!

  3. That carousel horse got my attention, but I love the view of the room and I bet Beth’s whole house is wonderful.

    Book on her bookshelves? Hmmm… I’m sure there’s a copy of her book, Saving CeeCee Honeycutt, and most probably classics, poetry, books on writing, dictionaries and thesauruses.

    Just tweeted and shared the link to this giveaway on FB πŸ™‚

  4. What a beautiful home…and I LOVE the carousel horse! I collect small ones. I imagine that the shelves hold some classics as well as books on writing. At least mine do. I would love to win this book. Thank you for the opportunity.

    Smiles & Blessings,
    Cindy W.

    I would think that she would have a copy of Gone With The Wind on her shelves.

  12. I think there are some southern fiction on those shelves – Like The Crowning Glory of Calla Lily Ponder – or one of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood books – or something by Karen White like The Lost Hours.

  13. I am really interested in reading this book, it sounds so wonderful. For some reason this year i have become obsessed with antiques πŸ™‚

    I believe that those shelves would be filled with books on making preserves or crafting, along with more classical fiction like Jane Austen’s novels. πŸ™‚

    I will be posting this giveaway on the sidebar of my blog :

    Thanks for the opportunity!

    Well the first 3 books I thought might be on the shelves have already been said by others. Being a southern lover Gone With the Wind has to be there, along with The Secret Life of Bees, and Little Women. I also think Fried Green Tomatoes and Driving Miss Daisy will be on the shelves.
    I love the writing library. So cozy and peaceful looking.

    I’m a facebook fan

  18. scottsgal says

    I bet Little Women is on those shelves

  19. Beth Hoffman’s writing library is a beautiful room and I understnd why it is where she finds the discipline to write. I always wonder about how authors started writing, what their writing discipline is and what inspires them so I loved this post of Beth Hoffman’s. After reading about Aunt Mildred, the antique carousel horse and teddy bear and seeing where the “magic” for Ms. Hoffman, it makes sense for me that she wrote such a beautiful, touching book.

    Thank you Beth Hoffman and Serena!

  24. Debbie F says

    I ‘like” you on facebook!

  25. Debbie F says

    Oh I love that room. It looks so cozy & inviting. On her book shelf I imagine a first edition of Gone With The Wind.
    Love & Hugs,

  29. Would love to be entered for this giveaway. Thank you for hosting this – it has got such good reviews all over that I would really want to win this. I am overseas so thanks for offering something for us as well.

  30. I’d love to read or write in that beautiful room! I’m guessing that there’s some Lee Smith novels on those shelves!

    Thanks for the chance to win a copy of Saving Cee Cee Honeycutt – It’s on my wish list!

  31. what a beautiful space…i’ll bet that ‘saving cee cee honeycutt’ is somewhere on the shelf πŸ™‚

  32. I think from now on, I’ll imagine I’m writing in Beth’s room! It’s so beautiful. I would imagine she has a copy of To Kill A Mockingbird on her shelves.

    Beth’s book is on my “to buy” list (I’m #37 on the library request list) but if I could win a copy, so much the better.

    Thanks for the chance.

  33. Oh my, what a great place to write! And, I love the idea that when the muse is “maddeningly silent” I can still research and edit. What a concept (I thought a silent muse meant send out the search party)!

    I have read Beth’s amazing novel, and loved it! So, no need to enter me into the contest, but know I’ll pass on the info.

    Thanks, Beth, for giving us a peek into your writing sanctuary.

  34. Debra Dufek says

    Beth’s writing space sounds so cozy and warm. What a wonderful place to spend the evenings. I would imagine she has many of the classical novels on her bookshelves.
    Please enter me in this lovely giveaway. Jo-Jo has recommended this book to me and I am anxious to read it. As a backup plan I have it requested at our local library.


  35. Sandra Knobloch says

    I love antiques and carousels. I bet those shelves have some classics on them, like Jane Eyre.

  36. What a beautiful room! I’m betting there’s some Eudora Welty on those shelves.

  37. What a beautiful space! Well, given that she has a lot of artwork and had a career in interior design I think she may have some reference books on design and architecture.

  38. I absolutely love this writing space! It’s so cozy I just want to grab a cup of tea and cuddle up with a book in there! No need to enter me as I already read and loved this book…but I will post about your giveaway.

  39. I really loved this post and though it was real nice of Beth Hoffman to give readers a peek into her writing space. The room does look very cozy and comfy πŸ™‚ I am guessing Beth would have some classics and some books about antiques on her shelf.

    I would love to enter this giveaway and win this book. The story sounds quite poignant and touching and I really liked Beth Fish’s review of this book in her blog. But more so, I want to win this book for my mom who is an avid book reader herself and is in India. She is not yet savvy with the book blogging world and hence I am entering this giveaway on her behalf. Not many book giveaways are open to international readers and am happy this one is.



  40. I love that space and would love to have a fire burning though most of the winter months. Ahhhh. No need to enter me (I’ve read and reviewed and loved the book!). Can’t wait to see your review.
    .-= Beth F´s last blog ..Wordless Wednesday 79 =-.

  41. Beautiful home, and a book I’ve been reading great things about. Surely on her shelves she has some southern fiction like Gone With the Wind, and maybe books by Dorothea Benton Frank. Thanks for this giveaway. A good friend says CeeCee Honeycutt is her favorite book.

  42. What a beautiful space, but I imagine Beth’s whole house is gorgeous! I can’t wait to read your review of CeeCee. No need to enter me.

  43. What a cozy writing space! And I love those “happy creatures.”

    No need to enter me. I added the giveaway to my sidebar.

  44. Love the writing space…so beautiful

    I don’t have an interest in antiques or historical homes but I do love reading stories revolving around them.

    There is probably a copy of CeeCee Honeycutt on the shelf. There could also books on historical homes or antiques.
