I'm a Winner!

All week long, Crunchy Chicken has been hosting a series of green book giveaways. Being the book whore that I am, I greedily entered each separate contest. [Except the Green Chic giveaway, because I am so far from chic, the concept doesn't even appeal to me--no doubt a sour grapes coping mechanism from the uber dorkiness of my childhood.] Crunchy has hosted book clubs for several of these books, and although I wasn't participating, I read her reviews and the ensuing discussions with much interest. They all sound like really great books.

Crunchy announced the winners today, and I am the lucky winner of Michael Pollan's latest book, In Defense of Food. I am so excited! I very rarely enter giveaways or contests, but as I mentioned, I have a serious weakness for books. I have read several of Michael Pollan's earlier books, and loved them. I am definitely interested in eating healthy, nutritious foods, and have been eagerly anticipating the paperback release of this book. Crunchy, thank you! You have spared me the wait.

And if you missed this round of giveaways, don't despair. Crunchy has already announced plans for another green book giveaway later this month. Like many of us, Crunchy is trying to reduce her impact on the environment. Despite being utterly sincere about changing her life and inspiring readers to do the same, Crunchy keeps things fun. It's definitely good stuff.

If you haven't visited her blog, go check it out.

Ooh lucky you! I'm on the waiting list at the library for checking out that book, and there's still 42 people ahead of me! Happy reading.

Congratulations! I ventured over to Crunchy's blog and it looked like a great read so I added it to my favorites!

I'm still getting on the green bandwagon so I'll check out this book. Thank you and have a wonderful Sunday :)

Cool beans. Congratulations! YAY! Great win, I'm a little envious too!

I did win pens from Andrea;s blog.

I love that you describe yourself as a book whore. And what a great subject to read about! Maybe I'll pick that up.
