    My could not put down book is Blood Memory by Greg Iles. Actually any on his novels are must reads and grippers from beginning to end!

  2. Marti Cobb 20 April, 2010 at 3:00 pm - Reply

    I recently read The Girls from Ames and it was excellent! It is about a group of women who grew up together, and are still close friends. They have reunions every year. It is about their joys and struggles, but mainly about the bonds of friendship and love that have kept them together all of these years. I read it in a day.

  3. Karalyn Burnside 20 April, 2010 at 3:00 pm - Reply

    Hmm…great books…the Twilight Series!!! Love these books – could not put them down!!! the Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich…Nicholas Sparks books…

  4. Ignore the fact that Miley Cyrus is in the movie and read “The Last Song” … it’s a good read … “Dear John” too … love me some Nicholas Sparks!

    Another giveaway of great stuff…I would love to win! I still have a pack of those jewels in the matchbooks, I love them ๐Ÿ™‚ My favorite book of all time is “Where the Heart Is” by Billie Letts. The movie is excellent but I thought the book was even better! Thanks for another chance to win!

  6. Philippa 20 April, 2010 at 3:03 pm - Reply

    An absolutely scrumptious ‘Can’t put down’ read is ‘When in Rome’ by Penelope Green. She is an Australian who chases her dream and moves from Sydney to Rome. Just gorgeous and she’s written 2 more books since then too. Big smiles from New Zealand

  7. Wow…you must have a huge garage!!! The last book I read was My Sister’s Keeper by Jody Picoult….an awesome novel!!!

  8. Ruth Beckett 20 April, 2010 at 3:04 pm - Reply

    I love the JD Robb series, and I have never been a fan of futuristic things, but her books are amazing, i especially love her idea of having an Auto Chef where you just program in what you want to eat and it delivers it to you.. how cool is that? a new one came out in february and i still have not got it read.. too busy scrappin…

  9. Anything by Kristin Hannah is GREAT! I LOVED Firefly Lane… It’s a page turner and you will not be able to put it down! It’s about 2 women that grow up, become the best of friends, and learn what being a true friend is all about.

    Right now I’m reading “The Last Song” by Nicholas Sparks. It’s a good read! I just bought it for my recent flight and I’m almost done with it already!

  11. What a great giveaway for Wednesday’s winner! I would love to be picked! I love the classic collection of your brand when you first got started. I decorated a mannequin with the packaging. Weird but it was pretty! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  12. GensKitchen 20 April, 2010 at 3:08 pm - Reply

    A (kind of) classic that you won’t be able to put down ~ Peyton Place. I read it a few years back (and I read EVERYTHING) and loved, loved, LOVED it! Small town drama, gossip, scandal ~ all the fun stuff.
    My other selection choices would be:
    -Girl w. the Dragon Tattoo
    -Shadow of the Wind
    Read both last year and they were HUGE hits at my book club. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yes, definitely, Twilight Series…

  17. Oh forgot to add, I loved loved loved the time traveler’s wife, so out of the box but yet so romantic! I’m a huge James Patterson fan but his books are um, pretty detailed in murder and mayhem but great mysteries and an easy read.
    Also, wanted to add, you said “remember those?” with the jewel matchbooks, um…i still have like over 20 of them. ๐Ÿ™‚

  18. The Shack is a GREAT read !!
    Thanks for reading !!!!

    Gotta love Ken Follett ‘Pillars of the Earth’ which is old and a classic but more recently his ‘World without End’ though to be fair you probably will need the full 18 hours (At least!) to read them – they are epic!!

    What an awesome giveaway! For books… hmm. I’m in school so I’m reading mostly textbooks. I just finished “The Goal” by Eli Goldratt which was a school book, but excellent. I’ve been loving the YA vampire books including the House of Night series as well as Blue Bloods and Twilight, of course! I just got Swan Thieves from Elizabeth Kostova which I’m really looking forward to (she wrote The Historian, another favorite). I devoured The Poisonwood Bible if you haven’t already read it. Can’t think of anything else… have fun picking books!

    The Last Lecture by Randy Pausch was an inspiring book and makes you think about your life and the ones that you love. It was one of the last books that I read before being diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer. It was a very easy and quick read.

  34. Dawnmarie 20 April, 2010 at 3:30 pm - Reply

    I just finished three books. The first was “the last song”. It was really good. a bit different than the movie and that is OK. I am also a huge fan of Nora Roberts (she writes fantastic romance) and she has a new bride series out. Books 1 &2 are available. The first is called “vision in white” and the second is called “bed of roses”. They really are pretty good.

    Firefly Lane by Kristen Hannah and My Sister’s Keeper by Jodi Picoult are 2 of my favorites. I just finished The Alexander Cipher on my flight from DC to PHX. That’s a pretty good read if you like Dan Brown style of reads.

  38. Louise Dubord 20 April, 2010 at 3:38 pm - Reply

    The Highlander series by Diana Gabaldon, there’s everything in it : historical, romance, tons of adventures… And they are big books that last for a while!
    The Shack is also a really good book I read not long ago.

    Love seeing your early work, Heidi … it has always been fab!

    I read Three Cups of Tea about a year ago, but it is a real standout. I could not put it down. An amazing true story of a man who bridged cultures, religious beliefs and backgrounds to bring education & hope to rural areas of Pakistan by simply building schools, bridges & community. He shows us how we are more alike than different. A beautiful story.

    Hey Heidi, I totally remember and still have the bling in the matchbooks! Love all of it. The book I am reading is Eat, Pray, Love and it is one that I think you would really like because it is about finding yourself and being true to yourself. I think it is a great companion to the “She” book that you introduced me too. Elizabeth Gilbert writes with a wonderful sense of humor – Enjoy!

    Okay, I just read “Souvenir” by Therese Fowler, and while I cried at the ending, it was one of those books I didn’t want to ever end. And speaking of crying at endings, I’m finally reading the sequel to Friday Night Knitting Club. Good brain candy: Something Borrowed & Something Blue by Emily Giffin. I could go on and on…

    Unfortunately, I am a little out of touch with “fun reads” since I’ve been back in school over the last couple of years. I wouldn’t recommend textbook reading for your flight. ๐Ÿ™‚ Mitch Album has some good ones, though. Get out the Kleenex for “Tuesdays with Morrie” and “The Five People You Meet in Heaven”.

    Since you have an ipod now, I would recommend an audio book. It’s just that when I get on a plane I start reading and I fall asleep. You don’t know how many times I listened to the first few chapters of Davinci Code years ago.

  69. My favorite book that I’ve read in the past few years is The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer.
    Just love that it’s all written in letter format, and the stories set in WWII are dramatic, romantic, and so riveting.
    Thanks so much for the chance to win your goodies. Bet your readers have some great book suggestions!

    I would definitely read “The Last Song” by Nicholas Sparks, although, you will probably just go see it at the theatre. ๐Ÿ™‚ I recently read “The Book Theif”, I cant remember the author…but loved the book. Couldn’t put it down.

    Hi Heidi,
    I know you have read the Twilight Series but have you read Harry Potter. I think I liked it even more than Twilight…lol. By the way I live very close to Forks, WA ๐Ÿ™‚
    I am going to suggest a couple of books that are not high brow but are what I call good airplane reads, grab you immediately. Suspense read Danial Silva good spy thriller. If you have not read Jurassic Park it is a real page turner…not kidding. Also The Firm, if you do not already know the ending it is a very fun read. Oh Clive Cussler Sahara super fun. I need easy reads on an airplane since I find myself getting distracted. So I don’t usually do book club reads that are much more quality, lol. Oh and last but not least if you have never read Gone With The Wind it is a wonderful romantic sweeping novel. Luv it
    Hope you will tell us which ones you take along and then what you thought of them.
    Thanks for the give away opp…

    Sarah’s Key is a great read, very sad though. I also recommend A Thousand Splendid Suns or The Kite Runner.

    While I was in Cuba about 2 years ago, I ran out of books, and decided to read one my sister had brought with her. Not something I would normally read, but I couldn’t put it down!

    I absolutly loved The Kite Ruuner it came out in 2007. Khaled Hosseini is the author and he also wrote another good book called Thousand Splendid Suns. The Kite Runner is completly captivating. It brought tears to my eyes in more than one chapter and I felt completely connected with the characters he so brilliantly portrayed.

  190. Hi Heidi!
    This is another awesome giveaway!
    I was so excited about the other vintage items that I forgot to post our music recommendation…The Killers. A terrible name but there are 2 songs that are played are the stations and the 3rd one my 8 year old recommended…Smile like you mean it.
    For books I am reading Committed right now, but I wouldn’t say that it really has my full attention. Reading it after a friend recommended it. I am enjoying looking through these lists though ๐Ÿ™‚
    Thanks for the chance to win this really cool stuff. I would love to own the contents of this giveaway.

    If you haven’t joint the ranks of the millions of other women – you HAVE to read the Twilight books, but if you’ve read those, try The General’s Daughter by Nelson Demille (or pretty much anything by him – they’re all fast-paced, suck you in GREAT reads). Thanks again for another chance at a fabulous giveaway!

    Nothing like a great classic!! I’m in the midst of Pride and Prejudice (again). I also just finished re-reading the sequel to Gone With The Wind — it’s a hefty book! Thanks for another chance to win more Heidi fun-ness!!

    I would suggest:
    Julie & Julia: 365 Days, 524 Recipes, 1 Tiny Apartment Kitchen by Julie Powell
    I am reading it right now (after watching the movie first) and I think it is a must read!

  195. Denise Mills 21 April, 2010 at 6:01 am - Reply

    Heidi, I am usually reading about 5 books at any one time. Try ” Lift”by Kelly Corrigan. It is a short read about motherhood and stuff. Should fit neatly in your bag along with some longer reads.
    And as for your give- away…Pick Me!
    It looks awesome!

  196. Holly Sloat 21 April, 2010 at 6:02 am - Reply

    I am not a big reader of books-I read a lot of magazines-but I agree…the Twlight series is a winner. My husband reads Patterson books. Hope you find a great one!

    I would advise: The bookthief by Marcus zuzak. http://www.nytimes.com/2006/05/14/books/review/14greenj.html
    It’s a boek for youngsters and plays during the second world war. It’s beuatiful!

    A Thousand Splendid Suns ( Khaled Hosseini)

  202. This is the last one I could not put down.

  210. Wendy Merrill 21 April, 2010 at 7:20 am - Reply

    TWO great books are “The Hunger Games” and the second book in that series “Catching Fire” (third one comes out in August). I couldn’t put either of them down and they are awesome- no sex, no swearing. I actually think they are aimed at a younger audience but they are on my list of favorites.
    If you need loooong books, “Pillars of the Earth” and “World Without End” by Ken Follet also sucked me right in till the very end!!

  211. some really good books that you AND the kids will like is the “Percy Jackson and the Olympians” by Rick Riordan. book one has been made into a movie already. ๐Ÿ™‚ another series I am enjoying is the Hannah Swenson Mysteries by Joanna Fluke. All about food and very cute, not scary.

  212. Hi Heidi- what a generous giveaway! “The Art of Racing In The Rain” by Garth Stein is a “can’t put down book”. Such a wonderful story about family and life told in the voice of the family dog. Can’t wait for tonight’s show..hoping to see it live..:) Linda in Denver

    I love epics, like the Diana Gabaldon series and anything by Herman Wouk or Irving Stone for some historical fiction. Also, Jodi Picoult and Chris Bojalian really make me think about relationships. Great book and music would be absolutely necessary on a long flight! Can’t wait to see your photos!

    The last book I read that I could not put down was the Twilight series. I actually read all 4 of them thru 2x before I could move on to another book. The Lost Symbol from Dan Brown is also good. Dan Brown wrote the Da Vinci Code and Angels and Demons. Awesome giveaway.

    Last book I couldn’t put down??? The Inkheart series- for a young adult series I found it very well written- just pulled one into this other world. Great giveaway, thanks for the chance.

  230. Hmmm…of course, you may have already caught the Twilight fever, but they WERE super-good and I didn’t even feel ashamed to be a mother of 3 and NOT 14 years old as I read them. Also, anything by Karen Kingsbury is fabulous. She has a great series called Redemption- sucked me right in. I think you would love them.

    i read almost a book a day – so a book that would last over 18 hours is really difficult for me! i’m in the middle of reading The DragonMaster Trilogy by Chris Bunch – very interesting stories there. and i recommend Clive Cussler books – there’s a lot of history in those books!
    i think that the love of reading is the best gift my parents gave me. It doesn’t matter what one is reading – just as long as you’re reading and learning!

    Ok. You’ve probably read all the Twilight books by Stephenie Meyer but if you haven’t then go for it. Shopaholic series by Sophie Kinsella are a fun fast read. They are really addicting and you may want to bring a few. The previous suggestions are all easy reads but good for plane rides. Kite Runner a A Splendid Thousand Suns by Khaled Hosseini are great too. The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks is great. Three cups of tea by Greg Mortenson. So many…

    I’d take a James Patterson book — I am in the process of reading, in the order written, all of his Alex Cross books. An 18-hour trip would be a great way for me to get through the next two books! Of course, this is your trip . . . so, it’s really up to what you like to read — fiction, romance, biographies . . . the sky’s the limit! Get it? You’ll be in the “sky” flying . . . sorry ’bout that – ha.

  257. I love Dean Koontz and Charlain Harris. Charlain Harris did the True Blood series. She has a brand new one that is coming out in May, however, don’t think it will be ready for your flight. So, I would suggest starting at the beginning of the series and reading to the end….about 10 books or so. You will love to get to know the Sooky Stackhouse that is in the books vs. the one on the show. My opinion, anyway…
    Awesome giveaways and tonight is going to be my first web show…I can’t wait!!!!

    I love Sophie Kinsella books, they are really fun quick reads. Can you Keep a Secret and The Undomestic Goddess are my favorites. Perfect for a long flight.
    Love the giveaways….you’re the best!!

    Hinds Feet On High Places by Hannah Hurnard is a fav book on mine. It’s an allegory about our journey in life. Christian.

    You gotta go with Jodi Picoult, My Sister’s Keeper (although make sure you have plenty of tissues!). Thanks for the chance to win such awesome goodies ๐Ÿ˜€

    I just read this post and was excited to see the page from the book ‘to dye for.’ I have that book! I was just looking at it the other day. So I ran and grabbed it and turned to that page. I am still new to all of your stuff so it was kinda neat to see that I have had stuff with your name on/in it for a long time.
    I’m not hip on all the names of products and junk. Not for lack of wanting, you know, busy mom…
