Reading Glasses Shopper *GIVEAWAY* - CLOSED to further entries

This drawing is now closed to further entries.

Time for a slight change of pace. Instead of giving away a book, I'm going to offer up some reading glasses. I won a pair of reading sunglasses from Book-a-rama Chris, a couple months ago and I love them so much that I asked if I could host a giveaway, as well. Here are mine:

Reading Glasses Shopper sells tons of different reading glasses for under $20. The pair I won have been lifesavers. I've gotten to the point that I can no longer read without reading glasses, but my eyes are blue-gray -- extremely sun-sensitive -- so I figured I was going to have to buy expensive prescription bifocal sunglasses. What a terrific way to save money!!

I absolutely love my reading sunglasses and have used them almost daily since they arrived (I got The Princeton Bifocal Sunreader).

One winner will have a choice of $25 gift certificate or the glasses of their choice.

The Rules:

1. Go to the Reading Glasses Shopper website to see what they have to offer.

2. Tell me the name of a pair you're interested in. You won't necessarily have to choose that pair if you win. I asked the rep at RGS to tell me if she thought the style I'd chosen would fit and it turned out they were a little too wide for my face. She helped me measure properly so that I was able to choose a pair that fit perfectly.

3. Very important!!!!! Leave your email address, so I can contact you if you win. No email, no entry and you may only enter once.

4. *This drawing is open to U.S. and Canadian residents only. No P.O. Boxes.*

5. Drawing will be held Sunday, April 18 at about 6pm Central Time. I will contact the winners and you'll have about 72 hours to respond, so I recommend following my blog (but you don't have to) in case your email goes astray.

I am not receiving any compensation for hosting this giveaway; I've just really enjoyed the product and thought it would be nice to share the joy.

Since I know you're going to ask . . . that's The Postmistress that my sunglasses are perched upon. I DNF'd The Postmistress, but I'll try it again, soon.


  1. I have the same problem that you have and this would be a great solution...reading sunglasses!

    I'd probably get these: The Classic Bi-Focal Sun Reader

    Although I could change my mind.

  2. I need a pair of these so badly! I was reading outside today and thought about ordering a pair! I can't decide between the Andrea Sun Reader and the Animal Print Sun Reader.


  3. Thanks for this great giveaway. I would like The Hudson Sun reader glasses. Sunglasses where I live are vital. saubleb(at)gmail(dot)com

  4. What an awesome give-away, Nancy! If I don't win, I'll still plan to order a pair (or two) of these glasses. I've just gotten to the point where I really need them for reading outside.

    I like the Loretta Sun Readers.

  5. Ooh! Okay, so I'm going to enter this one....bu ton behalf of my dear Mom! (She can't do without her reading glasses and some of these are really nice!) Count me in! If I had to pick for her, I'd probably say she'd go with either
    +2.50 in The Miami or The Tiffany.

    Thanks for the chance....and happy reading!


  6. I would like to have the Randy Sun Reader. I have not notice sunglass + reader in 1 at pharmacy.
    (sorry, forgot to put in my email in the earlier post)

  7. I would try The Houston Computer Readers. I would love to see if I could read printed material and the computer screen with one pair of glasses.
