Yay! We hit 10 followers! Let the wild rumpus begin ...
So the Great Giveaway I announced before was Colleen Patrick Goudreau's book The 30-Day Vegan Challenge: The Ultimate Guide to Eating Cleaner, Getting Leaner, and Living Compassionately. I haven't read this book, as it has yet to be released, but since all of her other books are wonderful and her podcast is amazing, I'm sure this book will also knock your socks off.
I've actually decided to make things more interesting by giving you a choice of Colleen's books, should you be the winner! What prompted this change was the realization that not everyone wants to make the commitment to eat only plant-based foods. Most of us love a new cookbook, though, to expand our repertoire, and that's not a major commitment if a plant-based diet isn't your cup of tea (yet). :) So the books to choose from are the following:
Color Me Vegan (Everything I've made from this has been superb. My omnivore guinea pigs have raved about the food)
The Vegan Table (I just got this and haven't cooked from it yet, but like her other books it's absolutely lovely inside.)
The Joy of Vegan Baking (I just got this one too. I'm not a big baker but will be drawing on the recipes for special occasions. Friends rave about this one, though.)
The Vegan's Daily Companion (Gorgeous book. I'm not joking -- this thing is stunning. Granted it's not solely a cookbook, but there are many recipes in there and sweet, inspiring stories.)
As the new book is being released August 23, the winner will be randomly picked on that evening! The winner has 48 hours to respond. If s/he doesn't respond, another winner will be chosen. (So keep your eye on the date!) :)
To get your first entry ( you must do this one before you do the optional ones that follow):
- Write a comment below about which book you'd like to win and why. (I know! It's tough to choose!) If you win and you change your mind on the book you want, that's fine!
- "Like" Suburban Snow White on Facebook.
- Sign up as a follower to the right. (If you already did, then that's three additional entries already for you! Way to go!)
- Get a friend to become a follower or to "like" Suburban Snow White on Facebook, and then have them email me your name as the "recommender"
- Add a permanent link to Suburban Snow White on your blog, then email me the link to your blog.
- Post the contest on your own blog/website with a link to this post and then email me a link to your post.
Sadly, spouses of Suburban Snow White cannot enter (sorry Ry). How weird would it be to have Ryan win and then announce, "The book goes to .... US! Better luck next time, suckahs!" :)
I'm really excited to do this giveaway. I've entered many blog giveaways myself and I get embarrassingly excited.
That's all for now. I just harvested all my garlic today and may do a post soon on that as it's so flippin' cool to dig these bulbs out of the ground!
Good luck everyone!
