The next giveaway ... a little Yada Yada?

Pin It Finally found the rest of the set!

Next item up in the nightstand clear off:

All seven of the Yada Yada Prayer Group books by Neta Jackson.
- The Yada Yada Prayer Group
- The Yada Yada Prayer Group Gets Down
- The Yada Yada Prayer Group Gets Real
- The Yada Yada Prayer Group Gets Tough
- The Yada Yada Prayer Group Gets Caught
- The Yada Yada Prayer Group Gets Rolling
- The Yada Yada Prayer Group Gets Decked Out

I know, I know, the stellar photography itself, complete with my shadow, makes you want these books.

These are all pre-read, but I think only one of them was read more than once. Maybe some dog ears, but no writing or anything bad.

Here's my review, such as it is. These books probably won't change your life. They are fun reads though. You won't get bored with them, and they will likely challenge you spiritually in some areas. The characters are the same in each book, so you really get to know them, and chances are, you will relate to at least one of them. Chances are, you will wish for a Yada Yada prayer group of your own. I think I read all of these while Jim was gone, and they were a nice diversion. Not obsessive-you-can't-put-it-down books, but good reads anyway.

The versions I have of these books are different. The first three are the smaller versions, maybe they're the bargain books. I don't know. Books four through seven are larger, and four, five, and seven are the "party edition" and have some recipe and celebration ideas in the back.

Interested? If so, just leave me a comment. :) Again, if you're local, I'll deliver them to you. If you're not, I'll ship them to you. Easy peasy. I have a busy weekend ahead, so I'll leave this open until Sunday night and will choose a winner on Monday.

Hey, Melanie! Thanks for sharing the Yada Yada books in your giveaway. Whoever "wins" these books, I hope you will write me an let me know what you think. (And BTW, I'm writing a spin-off series, called the Yada Yada House of Hope. Books 1, 2, and 3 are already out there, new story with a new main character, though a few of the "old" YY sisters show up in this series, too. For more info, you can go to our web site: BLESSINGS!
