Happy V-Day treats from Falling in Love with Close Reading

Kate and I have been so touched, honored, energized, (a little overwhelmed, in a good way), by all of the generous comments and cool experiences many of you have been sharing about your work with our book.

Falling in Love With Close Reading cover

We love your love and love you back.

So. We talked with our friends at Heinemann and brainstormed two special things.

One has been going on for about two weeks for those of you on twitter who follow @HeinemannPub and/or Kate, I and ends at midnight tonight, a chance to win a book bundle of 5 selected books from Heinemann:

  • Falling in Love with Close Reading
  • Book Love, by Penny Kittle
  • Energize Research Reading and Writing, by me
  • Finding the Heart of Nonfiction, by Georgia Heard and
  • Children Want to Write, a collection of Don Grave’s essays and archival footage edited by Tom Newkirk and Penny Kittle

More on that twitter contest here. Winners are chosen tomorrow and announced by @HeinemannPub on twitter (woo!).

The other is that Falling in Love With Close Reading will have a special (and very cute) price tomorrow: $14.14  February 14, 2014. Aww.

All day tomorrow through Heinemann.com use the promo code “FiLwCR” for this offer.  Only good on Valentine’s Day.
