You may recall last Fall when Nanette the Nanny came to my rescue and did All The Work to ship out all of my pre-orders of Grounded.

Well, now she needs a hand, too.

To help her out, CraftLit, Vanessa at Survival Organs, and the MamaO Knits Too Much site are helping Nanette raffle off eight Lots of books-and-bags to raise money for a (surprise!!! and) suddenly necessary move.

Details on how to bid and win will post here and via the CraftLit newsletter over the weekend, but we’ll start with Lot 1 on Monday, June 23rd and work our way through all eight Lots by Friday, June 27th, 2014.

If you got this in your email inbox, then you’re already subscribed to the MamaO newsletter and you will receive the details automatically. (And thank you for subscribing!)

All of Nanette’s books are gently used and a couple are Very-Hard-To-Find-Out-Of-Print-Books!

Take a look below and see which ones float your boat. Dates for when each lot will become available are listed below.

Bidding time-windows are being finalized and will come out in the newsletters (MamaO‘s and CraftLit’s) this weekend.
