World Book Night Give Away: The Worst Hard Time

Just a quick check-in to tell you that the green guardian is a World Book Night giver this year, and I am giving away to one of my lovely readers a free copy of The Worst Hard Time by Timothy Egan.  Yes, only one.  The rest are going to Iron Gate--a local soup kitchen, some homeless teens via Youth Services of Tulsa, and then to random people on the streets, as is the tradition of World Book Night.  You see, these books are intended to spark a love for reading in light or non-readers, primarily adults and older teens.  But, some of you may not be avid readers, and this book might just change your whole outlook.  In any event, this particular book is a chilling and poignant account of the Dust Bowl which effected Oklahoma and neighboring states.  It was one of the worst man-made environmental disasters in our history, and contains some hard-earned lessons for humankind.

A Little Introduction

The first lines of a blank page.  This is always the hardest part, it seems--the introduction.

Many of you have been following TGCG on facebook, so we're not really strangers, are we?  No, I suppose not.  For those of you who haven't been following along, my name is Angela, but I shall henceforth be signing off on these posts with the pretentious title, "the green guardian" (no caps, so as to depretentiousize it), because I like it and it fits and I think you'll forgive me.  Call me a gambler.  I am a little.
