Well, big one in the sense that I am making a huge push to get some books out before the end of this year. They are taking over my art table and I've got some pieces I want to work on, so, be gone cookbooks!
I like to keep things interesting by giving away a pair of books periodically, last done with the Cook's Illustrated Collection, and prior to that, two Tapas books. This time, I'm doing a whole BUNCH of books.
So here's what we'll do: This week, I'm listing ALL of the books, below, and I'll select one name PER book. I'm averaging about 8-10 loyal bloggers every week (and 2 or 3 challenged souls who don't read the rules and thus are not eligible) so if I list 8-10 books, everyone should win, yes?
This is what we'll do this time:
1) All valid comments go into the hat for drawing, in random order.
2) In your comments, let me know your choices in order of preference. Yes, I know that means you have to make a list of books, but just cut and paste and rearrange, eh?
3) Leave off your list any books you DO NOT WANT to win. If the book comes up with your name, I'll select another name for that book, and select a different book for you.
4) As I draw the names, the first person gets her first choice from the list. Of the remaining books, the second person gets the book next available on her list, the third person gets the next available book on her list, and so on and so forth.
Does that make sense? I hope so.
As always, new participants, you should read about the rules for winning this book on my blog, because you must cook and blog from the winning book within 30 days. If your comments don't link me to your foodie blog to demonstrate you can and will do so :::scratch::: (that's me, making the motion of drawing a knife across my throat or tearing up your comment, take your pick).
Awayyyyyyyyyyyy we go!
Cut and paste and rearrange the following in the order you'd most like to win, and by all means, if there are only a few you're interested in, just list those few in your comments. Leave OFF any book you already have or don't want to win.
