Giveaway - How Not to Look Old - Charla Krupp

I am thrilled to be hosting a giveaway for 5!! copies of How Not to Look Old by Charla Krupp, courtesy of the Hachette Book Group!

Why am I so excited? Well the subtitle definitely caught my eye! -~Look 10 years younger, 10 pounds lighter and 10 times better. ~ And it's geared towards ages 30+. Any tips I can get, I'll take!

Synopsis from the publisher:

This giveaway is a bit different as I haven't had a chance to read and review it myself yet. I'm would love it if the winners would send their thoughts along once they've read it and I'll include those with my review. So leave a comment to be entered, open to both US and Canada, no PO boxes please. Giveaway runs until Friday May 1 at 6 pm EST. And for those of you who read all the way to the end, check out my other Boomer Beauty giveaway here.
