Merry Mother (Only!) Contests

Before you read the rest...make sure you are, in fact, a Merry Mother. Cause if you're fun for you!

Coo Clothing Giveaway!

coobabes pink

From the Mandarin Collection.
Also comes in orange.

It's been ages since our last contest, and since reading is my sport of choice, I thought that it would be fun to get some reading suggestions from my fellow Merry Mothers! Even if I it takes me a year to finish...I like to have a book in the cooker.

Start Your Engines...

Contest starts TODAY (as in, just this second...) And it will end at midnight on May 15th (CST).

What You Win...

The size and color of your choice of any onesie from The Mandarin Collection at Coo. (Samples are pictured here.)

How You Win...

I'm a fair-weather reader. I pretty much read anything that piques my interest. So I'm looking for suggestions in the following categories:
  • For the classic reader...
  • For the romantic reader...
  • For the history buff...

    coobabes blue

    From the Mandarin Collection.
    Also comes in red.

  • For the fantastical dreamer...
  • For the biographer...
Using this form here, give me up to three of your favorite books in any or all of the main categories. For each book you share, you earn 10 entry points. This means you can have up to 150 entries to win!

All the entries are assigned a number. After May 15th I will go to and randomly choose one of the numbers. If your entry is picked, you're the winner! After I contact you, you will have 48 hours to respond or I will have to pick another random winner.

Coo is based in Singapore, so everyone is eligible to enter. Not just Americans!

When You Win...

This is a closed contest, meaning it is open ONLY to Merry Mother subscribers. (...and I do check!) The winner will be emailed on May 16th using the email address you subscribed with (the one that allowed you to view this message). The winner (and all the results of course) will be shared with you in the next issue of The Merry Mother, coming on May 17th.
