Happy #Mothers Day

From all of us here at Mello & June, It's a Book Thang! we'd like to wish all mothers a very happy fulfilling blessed day!  For us children who still have our mothers with us, remember to treat her right, not just on Mother's Day, but everyday! You only get one mother and when she's gone, you don't want to have the if-ah-would-ah-could-ah moments. As my grandmother used to say, "Give me my flowers while I can enjoy them, not when I'm gone!" And I gave her plenty in her lifetime and more.

While we're on the subjects of mothers, please know even if you haven't birthed any children, doesn't mean you aren't 'motherly.'  Women in general usually mothers something. It's a woman's nature.  That's how we were designed.  Hopefully, you use your motherly instincts for the good!

And now on to other matters at hand.  Seeing as how time flies so fast, we're reminded that June is just around the corner and that also means, Mello & June, It's a Book Thang! will be celebrating it's ninth year in the book blogging era.  I can't believe it's been that long.  We've had so many transitions through the years and many blog posts.  We've actually reached over 300 blog posts and I'm happy we're still here to do it.  

We want to share some fantastic news with you.  Beginning next month, Mello & June, It's a Book Thang! will be hosting a huge giveaway.  We're so excited and hope you will be too.   This giveaway is something all can enjoy.  So, please stay tuned to our blog for updates.  It's a giveaway YOU will not want to miss!  We're so sure you're going to enjoy it, you'll want to pass the information along.  There will be a special tab at the top of the blog for you to find all the information you'll need to enter the giveaway.

Last, but certainly not least, we'll be reading more and more books.  That's how we do! There are so many we have to review and so little time, but no matter what, we will make it work.
