Househusband - Free Book Giveaway!

My husband and I enjoy reading....a lot. We have two full bookcases in our bedroom, no..wait...we have three. Whoops..forgot about that one. The kids each have bookcases in their rooms and we have a large one in the living room. Heck, I even have a large cupboard in my kitchen filled with cookbooks! I had to draw the line at bookcases in the bathrooms though. With three males in the house if I put books in the bathrooms I would never see them again!

The only problem with reading as much as my husband and I do is we have become collectors. We have books we've read but don't want to get rid of. We have books given to us as gifts. We have books we haven't read yet...but we'll get to them!! There are quite a few of those at the moment too!

When you have so many books it is hard to justify buying more.....so.....I am giving some away to you! (That way I can buy more without guilt.)

First up.....Househusband by Ad Hudler. DR bought this for me and I wasn't too sure about it at first but I really enjoyed this book. I think both men and women would enjoy reading it too. (This book even has recipes in it!) Believe it or not, I couldn't find this one on Amazon but the author does have some other of his books listed.
The artist in me loves the cover! Though it would be funnier to see DR in an apron the Michelangelo's David.

About the book -
From the front cover: Lincoln Menner is finding out how hard it is to be a woman. When his wife was offered her dream job, he supported her wholeheartedly, leaving his thriving landscape business in Los Angeles and moving to Rochester, New York. This was the chance to spend a little quality time with their three year old daughter. But Linc had no idea what it really meant to be a househusband. To be ignored by his wife's colleagues and looked upon with suspicion by neighborhood women. Linc misses the outside world, longing to carry on an adult conversation. Should he go back to work or embrace his role as househusband extraordinaire?

Tell your friends! Heck, tell your enemies too! Giveaway ends Monday, April 26th. The winner will be picked at random and will be announced next Tuesday! Good Luck! More book giveaways to come!


  1. "looked upon with suspicion by neighborhood women." There is one woman at my daughters class that keeps asking questions as if there is no way that everything is getting done. I think I have now convinced her that everything is under control.

  2. I bet this is a great read! I cringe a little imagining my husband as a househusband... there are many men out there that would do it very very well, he's not one of them!

    I'm not sure if my husband could handle being a "househusband", I'm not sure if I could handle it! Sounds like a great book!


I'd love to hear what you have to say! I try to reply to every one of them.
