I love books. All kind of books. I love paperback books, hardcover books, eReaders, and audio books. I love romance, history, humor, contemporary, poetry, and books to put on my coffee table because they’re just so damn gorgeous and I’m classy like that.
Today, I’m beyond excited to launch Edition 6 of the Big Booty Book Bundle Giveaway! To celebrate the launch of my new humor book, Who Left the Cork Out of My Lunch?, I decided to give a bunch of them away. Hubs is, understandably, not quite as enthusiastic as I am about my New Plan, but he’ll feel better once he can get his car back into the garage (after it was summarily booted out to make room for my book stash).
Our sixth edition of the Big Booty Book Bundle Giveaway includes FIVE books from five talented writers. I’ve selected four of my favorite books by some of the rockin’-est women I know (yes, I made that word up). You’ll get a copy of Who Left the Cork Out of My Lunch? (of course!), plus four other fabulous choices.
Need more? Once a month, for one week, you can enter to win a bodacious bundle of brand-new softcover books. And (I know, this just keeps getting better, doesn’t it?), IT’S FREE. We’ll run a new Big Booty Book Bundle Giveaway each time. Is this fun or what??
How do you get this booty bounty, you ask? Just click on the photo at the top or the bottom that says “Click Here to Enter,” and poof! You’re entered.

Still with me? Great! All of these books are available on Amazon. So if you can’t wait to read one or all of them, simply click the title link and it will take you directly to the Amazon page. Here are the Amazon blurbs for each of these must-have books!
Who Left the Cork Out of My Lunch? by Vikki Claflin
Are you a woman who has ever looked in the mirror and thought, “How did my mother get in my bathroom?” Have you gone through years of night sweats and seismic mood swings, leaving you with a metabolism that forces you to choose between wine and carbs (so you haven’t had a bagel in eight years)? Did you wake up one morning in someone else’s body? Then you will love this book.
If you ever made a regrettable hairstyle choice, finally conceded that thongs make you look like a Weeble in dental floss, or wished your Hubs would learn that grabbing your boobs every time you walk past him with a load of laundry is not foreplay, then you will love this book.
Who Left the Cork out of My Lunch? is chock-full of funny, informative how-to lists, hilarious advice columns, and sharp personal anecdotes that cover subjects from menopause (are we done yet?), empty nest syndrome (sob!), and grandchildren (yay!), to sex (better after fifty), marriage (he said what?), age-appropriate fashion (what does that mean?), cosmetic intervention (to Botox or not to Botox?), diet fails (#972), beauty tips from Mom (still true), and confidence (fabulous after fifty). Laugh along with Vikki and her amusing advice on how to let go of our youth and start rocking our middle age. Are you ready?
Menopause Sucks, by Elaine Ambrose
Do they call menopause “the change” because . . .
- You have to change shirts three times a day-after you’ve sweat through them?
- You have to change addresses, just to avoid all that mail from the AARP?
- You have to change your diet to nothing but milk and broccoli-just to get your RDA of calcium?
With hot flashes, mood swings, and night sweats (oh, my!), menopause might not be your favorite phase of life. However, bestselling author Joanne Kimes is here to provide relief as welcome as hand-held fans and sweat-free sheets. In her signature, no-holds-barred style, Kimes dishes on:
- Dealing with a rollercoaster of emotions
- Anecdotes, remedies, and gentle tips to help you cope with all the physical changes you’re facing
- How to enjoy menopausal sex
Menopause brings about a whirlwind of emotional and physical transformations. Menopause Sucks gives you all the info-and belly laughs-you need to cool down during this hot change of life.
Being Brain Healthy, by Ruth Curran
The journey to wellness when coming back from a brain injury, tbi, can be a long one. It is one that author Ruth Curran knows well. Faced with a myriad of challenges after her own brain injury, she decided to turn up the volume on the things that she loved and found ways to work through the discomfort and discouragement that can plague so many who are faced with this devastating diagnosis. Her own path – one that took 18 months – is one that she shares with readers in Being Brain Healthy: What my recovery from brain injury taught me and how good brain health can change your life.
Being Brain Healthy is a book of hope. Curran shares insights on healing with readers and has the unique ability to explain complex neuroscience in a way that makes sense to even those who are just taking their first steps on the road to recovery. Convinced that everyone can work their way out of what Curran refers to as “the fog” and can build better thinking skills, the author shares how she turned her entire life into a better experience.
The goal of Being Brain Healthy is to combine the most cutting edge research with what those with a brain injury know intuitively. Curran helps readers to understand how the brain and body work together and how that can be used to an advantage. Readers will be able to see how the newest science, activities and exercises can help those who are suffering with brain injuries to make the most of every day.
Find Your Reason to be Here, by Laura Lee Carter
After experiencing a particularly difficult transition in her mid-40s, Laura Lee Carter, an academic librarian, professional researcher and psychotherapist, went in search of meaning and answers. She wondered what research could teach her about her recent experiences. She found there is no time in life more plagued with confusion and misinformation.
Laura wrote this book to share with you what she discovered about the shared emotional experiences of baby boomers, the uniqueness of our middle years, how midlife is evolving, and what we have learned thus far about making the most of this brand new stage in adult psychological development.
Many have experienced great losses in the past decade. What have we learned from this? Can crisis or loss benefit us in the long run? Can midlife confusion or uncertainty provide once-in-lifetime opportunities to seek and find new meaning?
After years of research Laura has concluded that midlife, has the potential to provide you with a quantum leap in emotional growth and maturity. “Midlife” is a previously unavailable rite of passage into a much improved way of life.
Don’t spend your middle years feeling alone, confused or marginalized, when you could benefit from many new discoveries. Learn what gifts this new stage in life has to offer you; gifts like increased wisdom, expanded resiliency, and the actualization of your own authenticity. Come into your own power, and begin contributing anew.
Gettin’ Back to Happy, by Valerie S. Albarda
Gettin’ Back to Happy is one woman’s look at embracing her happiness. In Gettin’ Back to Happy, Valerie Albarda takes a self-guided journey of discovery on a path that is a year in the making through humor, frankness and introspection. Hers is not a quest to define happiness but to revel in the simple joy that it can bring. Beyond singular characterization, every day happiness presented itself as a chameleon with a different façade to be embraced–it came in as many forms to discover as there are to rejoice in being happy.
