I learned last week that this week is the Bloggy Giveaways Quarterly Carnival. I've been thinking about doing a little giveaway here and over at Write Out Loud, and there's no time like the present.
I wanted to give away something that reflected me, my blog and what I've been writing about lately, so what better than a book about local eating? Here are the details:
What You Can Win
A copy of Animal Vegetable Miracle by Barbara Kingsolver. This book started me on my local eating journey with practical information and tips on living a local lifestyle, and I'd like to pass it on to someone else. In the name of being green I'd like to say you'll get a used copy, but since I got it from the library originally, you'll receive a new copy sent straight from Amazon.
How You Can Win
Simply leave a comment on this post mentioning why you'd like to receive the book or what you're doing to support your local food economy. Only one comment per person, please. I'll use random.org to choose the winner after the contest ends.
Who Can Win
You don't have to have a blog to win. Anyone with a valid email address that has a mailing address in the U.S. or Canada (sorry Internationals!) is eligible. I'll contact the winner via email for an address, so please make sure your email address is available in your profile or leave it in your comment (Blogger doesn't allow me to see your email address even though you enter it). If I am unable to locate an email address for the winner, I will be forced to draw another commenter.
When the Carnival Ends
Comment by Friday, August 1st at 11:59PM ET to be entered in the drawing. Any comments received after this time will not be considered.
So that's the deal. If you're a regular reader here, good luck! And if you're visiting via Bloggygiveaways.com, welcome to Writing: My Life. I hope you'll comment for a chance to win my giveaway, and I hope you'll take a look around. Enjoy some posts about local eating or browse my archives for my thoughts on everything from weight loss to writing to the books I've been reading.
Now what are you waiting for? Leave a comment and cross your fingers!
