Glade Sets The Scene for Book Lovers in Canada ~ Review and Giveaway!

My regular readers know that reading is one of my favourite pastimes. The luxury of diving into a good book is a lavish indulgence and Setting the Scene for a relaxing read is especially difficult with three children. I often find myself reading on the run and desperately need the tools to create stop, make time for myself and allow myself the pleasure of reading for leisure once more. Glade has provided me with those tools!

An evening of sharing the pleasure of a good book with friends is something I truly enjoy! I first joined a book club when I lived in the Canadian Arctic. During the long, cold arctic winters, living far from relatives, friends become far more like family and you learn to create your own entertainment in the absence of theatres, restaurants, and shopping malls. Book Club for us was a social event and an evening of shared entertainment as well as a time for stimulating conversation. Since that time I have always searched for book clubs to join where ever I've ventured. Setting the scene for a shared literary experience is something Glade has provided me with as well!
How, you ask, can a company known for its plug-ins and air fresheners Set the Scene for a stay-at-home mom's "Me Time"? Glade is not the old plug in any longer! Glade is now offering an upscale Fragrance collection at affordable prices including the appealing, and relaxing scents of Currant and Acai~a rich fruit scent, and Sheer White Cotton~a blend of fruit,floral, and woody scents. In the form of soy based candles {made of a renewable resource, meant to release less toxins than traditional candles} and reed diffusers, these scents create the perfect atmosphere for a evening of quiet, solitary reading in a bubble bath or a evening of laughter and avid literary conversation during a book club meeting!

But wait Glade knows that it can take more than candles and aromas to set the scene and what goes better with candlelight and soothing scents than a bottle {or two} of wine, and of course the essential great novel? That's correct Glade provided me with a sampling of their beautiful candles and diffusers, not one but two bottles of Copper Moon wine, and a $25 gift card to Chapters not to mention Glade coupons and book marks to share with my lucky book club members! I'm sharing one bottle of wine with my book club friends and selfishly saving one for my private reading "party" of one to be held in my bathtub or in front of a roaring fire! And Glade has provided enough candles for both occasions as well.

Lucky me you say? Do I sense a hint of jealousy in your tone? Fear not Northern Mama readers I have not deserted you without tools of your own to Set the Scene! Three Northern Mama readers will lavish in the same luxury because Glade is willing to send out three of these Set the Scene Packs which include:
::Two different scented reed diffusers
::Two soy-based mini candles
::Two large multiwick candles
::Two Bottles of Copper Moon Wine
and a $25 Chapters/Indigo Gift Card
