Why do I love dog sledding books? Because it's one of many challenges I will never do myself, so I have to live that particular adventure vicariously through books. I'm lucky enough to live in an area that has an annual dog sled race and let me tell you, those dog teams and their handlers are incredible to watch close up. I'm excited to read the book.

Why do I love dogsledding books? Because the north has always held a certain mystique for me, even though I've yet to get WAY up there. One day, I will most certainly head to the land of the midnight sun!

Not entering to win but I did add Ice Dogs to my reading list on Goodreads.

Great giveaway! I love dogsled books because, well, I love dogs! (I've owned a malamute most of my life as well, heheh) The human-animal bond is amazing, I can't wait to dive into your book!

Andrea Mack said...

Wow - what a generous giveway! My daughters would love to read these. I love dogsledding books because I love adventure stories and animals - and stories where people challenge themselves. Ice Dogs is definitely going on my TBR list!

Woods said...

Oh, wow--I'd love to get my hands on a few of these!

Why are dog sledding books awesome? Because they're full of adventure and survival tips. It's interesting to see how the MC endures the harshness of mother nature, and welcome the beauty of it as well. Also, I just love reading about the dogs, too. :)

I'm not entering either. I just stopped by to slap myself on the head because I think I forgot to come back and tell you how much I liked Dogsled Dreams. Smack, smack, smack!

I already told you my husband loved it, but I loved it, too. The descriptions in the book brought back lovely memories of the time we rode on a dogsled in Alaska. Of course, that was a tame, touristy ride, but we got to pretend it was a real adventure.

It really is a wonderful book, Terry Lynn, and I have recommended it to a few teachers I am friends with. I hope they share it with their students.

I love the peaceful feeling you get while being out in the snow blanketed world. It's so quiet. To have dogs with you only makes it better. That connection between human and animal is really strong.

Dog sledding books are awesome because they are filled with dogs! And the shush, shush of runners on ice. And the wilderness. And cold. And did I say dogs?

Why do I love Terry Lynn Johnson dog sledding books? Because she lives with sled dogs! And they're great and of course I'll add the new one to my goodreads list.

And p.s. I haven't read any of these 4 and would love to win!

Dog sledding books are awesome because you wrote two of them!

I really like the mermaid cover. Pretty.

Shannon O'Donnell said...

Dog sledding books are awesome because everyone wants to live vicariously through them! I mean, who wouldn't want to be on the back of a dog sled? But then, how many of us ever get that chance? YOU give it to us!!! :-)

Jemi Fraser said...

Your dog sledding books are amazing because the characters are so very real and relatable. And the dogs rock! Seriously who hasn't dreamed of racing in the Iditarod at least once??? :)

Kelly Hashway said...

Dog sledding books rock because those dogs are amazing! Gorgeous too.

Llehn said...

Dog sledding books rock because dogs and snow are awesome!

Deb Marshall said...

Wow wow wow. What a generous giveaway, Terry! Thank you.

Sharon K. Mayhew said...

I'm adding Ice Dogs to my list...

What a super giveaway, Terry!

Do you get Children's Writer Newsletter? Dogsled Dreams was in it in an article about 4RV.

Theresa Milstein said...

Dogsledding novels are awesome because my daughter's favorite dogs are huskies. She can't get enough of reading about them! So I get to enjoy the middle grade books she reads while making her happy.

What an excellent contest.

Theresa Milstein said...

I've added the book to my Goodreads list. So excited for you!

Marcia said...

I know dogsledding novels are awesome because I read a dogsledding mystery when I was a kid and really liked it! I'm very much looking foward to ICE DOGS.

Yan said...

Because a) dogs are awesome, b) snow is fun, and c) sledding is exciting. Dogsleeding books are basically a combination of all 3: An awesome, fun, and exciting book.

Beverly Stowe McClure said...

I love dog sledding books first of all because I'm a lover of dogs. Second, the subject of dog sledding is interesting. You don't read many books with this topic. Also, your books are on my list to read because they sound fascinating.

These books all look like great reads.

I love dog sledding because 1) I love dogs! Especially Huskies (it's those eyes) 2) I love snow 3) The whole idea of it is just so exciting!

P.S.
I just added both of your books to my Goodreads list =)
