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 the fifth edition 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 fifth edition of the Big Booty Book Bundle Giveaway includes FIVE books about the funny side of midlife. 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 and fun choices. These women will make you laugh out loud. Laughter can cure most any ailment. So enter. Do it now. We’ll wait.
Need more? Starting right now, and running until Wednesday night at 11:45, you can enter to win this bodacious bundle of brand-new softcover books. And (I know, this just keeps getting better, doesn’t it?), IT’S FREE. Plus, we’ll run a new Big Booty Book Bundle Giveaway twice a month, every other Thursday. Is this fun or what??
How do you get this booty bounty, you ask? Just click on the happy woman with the shopping bags at the top or at the bottom of this post, and poof! You’re entered.
Check out this week’s Big Booty Book Bundle!

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?

Showering with Nana, by Cathy Sikorski
What happens when a 2-year-old and a 92-year-old join forces and conspire against their primary caregiver? The picture is at times not pretty, but it’s always heartwarming and witty. Elder care attorney Cathy Sikorski penned this memoir about her days as a stay-at-home mom whose life is turned upside down when her Nana moves in. In between the adventures and misadventures that ensue when the toddler and grandmother become allies, Sikorski learns about patience, the importance of humor and the joy that results from a well-deserved nap.
A Day in the Life of Mom, by KA Shimmield
Join me in the ‘World of Mom’ This book is a homage to the life of a Mom in the guise of an adult coloring meditative book. Take a stroll through the existence of the average Mom with these detailed, factual yet funny illustrations. Make each drawing your own by coloring in the patterns, or if the page is too close to home and stirs feelings of frustration or desperation then just grab that red crayon and with all the force you can muster obliterate it from existence. In fact, grab a nice glass of your favorite wine and a black permanent marker and through your laughter or possibly tears, annihilate each page with deep abandon. Trust me, you’ll feel lighter, calmer and be a better mom for it.
As Moms we don’t have total control over much of how our day progresses. We can’t always find that missing shoe or locate that ‘perfect’ matching sock, even if we do it’s most likely not going to be the one your child wanted anyway. So sit back and take a few minutes each day to color in your page of choice, as this is the one thing you can control. Enjoy :)
