Book Giveaway!

I think I have to come to terms with the fact that I just am not going to be able to post regularly for the next month. I apologize. I have been doing my darndest to try and get something! anything! up, but frankly, I think I'd rather post well less frequently than put up mediocre crap more often. I am working on getting a widget so you can subscribe via email but I'm a little technically challenged so it's going to take some figuring out. I'll try and put that up sometime this week, so that when I update, you'll know immediately.

Now I know that you all hate me for abandoning you like that, so I decided to um ... bribe you all. You guys like bribes, right?

So today, I am giving away my copy of Not Buying It by Judith Levine. It's Levine's memoir of her year of non-consumerism, and it is funny and surprisingly poignant.

Let me know in the comments if you're interested. I will ship to Canada and Europe as well as the US.

Giveaway deadline: Tuesday, August 19th at 6:00 PM Pacific Daylight Time.

I have read it, but would like to read again - count me in.

Also, blogger has a new gadget called blog list that shows you time stamp of when that particular blog had the lastest post. It is sorted chronologically, with most recent post on top. I really like this feature so that I don't have to keep on clicking on my favorite blogs several times a day to see if they have posted anything. Check it out.

Count me out, since I read it last year--but I wanted to say how much I enjoyed the book. Hope the winner gets as much out of it as I did!

I already subscribe to your RSS feed via Google Reader, so I get notifications when you update your blog. I highly recommend using an RSS reader for anyone who isn't already doing so.
