Book Beginnings: Give to Live by Arlene Cogen



I grew up on Main Street, conquered Wall Street and, ultimately, returned to Main Street. . . . The result is that my mission in life is to help everyone experience the joy of giving and to give a gift they never imagined possible.

Give to Live: Make a Charitable Gift You Never Imagined by Arlene Cogen.

Arlene's new guide to charitable giving provides straightforward and thorough information about philanthropy for individuals and the professionals who guide them.

Give to Live is available in a Kindle edition for only 99¢, for a limited time.

Please join me every Friday to share the first sentence (or so) of the book you are reading, along with your initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires. Please remember to include the title of the book and the author’s name.

EARLY BIRDS & SLOWPOKES: This weekly post goes up Thursday evening for those who like to get their posts up and linked early on. But feel free to add a link all week.

FACEBOOK: Rose City Reader has a Facebook page where I post about new and favorite books, book events, and other bookish tidbits, as well as link to blog posts. I'd love a "Like" on the page! You can go to the page here to Like it. I am happy to Like you back if you have a blog or professional Facebook page, so please leave a comment with a link and I will find you.

TWITTER, ETC: If you are on Twitter, Instagram, Google+, or other social media, please post using the hash tag #BookBeginnings. I try to follow all Book  Beginnings participants on whatever interweb sites you are on, so please let me know if I have missed any and I will catch up.

TIE IN: The Friday 56 hosted by Freda's Voice is a natural tie in with this event and there is a lot of cross over, so many people combine the two. The idea is to post a teaser from page 56 of the book you are reading and share a link to your post. Find details and the Linky for your Friday 56 post on Freda’s Voice.

This definitely sounds like the perfect book for this time of year.

not sure that first sentence was labored over. Ha! Good idea, though. My quotes are from HEY, KIDDO a graphic memoir.

Sounds like something different. Has it sparked any new ideas?
