Got a lot of blackberries? Then check out this recipe for Blackberry Mojito Fruit Leather.

I'm not a huge fan of fruit leathers, but this turned out super good! And, really, you can't go wrong with blackberries, mint and rum.

Green Book Week - Affluenza giveaway

Green book week!Have you been following along with the Affluenza book club discussion posts, itching to get your grubby paws on a copy but didn't want to buy it for yourself because it goes counter to the whole message from the book?

Have you been dutifully participating in April's Buy Nothing Challenge and want to read more about how consumerism affects us all?

Did the reader submitted interview with David Wann (one of the authors of Affluenza), make you desperate to read his seminal work before diving into Simple Prosperity?

Are you ready to read more from this life-changing book? Are you ready for me to stop asking so many goddamned questions?

Affluenza: The All-Consuming EpidemicWell, now's your chance to get a copy of the book, guilt-free. Sure, it's a mildly used copy (I'm real gentle on my books), but isn't that better than buying it new?

All you need to do to enter the giveaway is add your name to the comments section of this post. The contest ends Friday, May 2nd, at 6:00 pm PST. I'll announce the winner on Saturday! Time's up!

I would love this... they didn't have it at my library OR my used book shop!

Thanks!

Jenn said...

I've been meaning to read this for ages, but have been reluctant to buy my own copy for the reasons you mention. I'd love to get in on the draw, though.

Kim said...

haha! When I first read your post, I thought you said "Sure, it's a MILDEWY used copy..." And thought I'd fall over laughing while wondering if you'd dropped in one of those ubiquitous Seattle rain puddles or something, but still decided to pass on. :-D

Then I re-read that line and realized that's not what you meant, AT ALL. Anywho, I'd love to be entered (actually, I'm feeling a little selfish, because I'd kind of love all the books you're parting w/ this week, and just might enter everyday.)

AJ said...

I would love to read this book. I'd get it at the library, but my tiny municipal library doesn't have a copy of this particular book (in fact, my personal library is more diverse and more up-to-date). I'd buy it, but I kind of made a promise I wouldn't ;). Please add my name to the pool.

I just read it (library) so don't enter me, but I just wanted to say that his next book is SO GOOD TOO (library again). Seriously, Crunchy, this is life changing stuff. THanks for passing them on-what a great idea! I have a (like new) copy of Farewell My Subaru, if anyone wants it. If you're thinking of moving to biofuel, this is a great and funny book!

De-lurking to say: Yes! (To all of the above questions. with the possible exception of wanting you to stop asking so many questions. ;)

And to say best of luck to you and your husband. Stem-cell transplant stuff sounds like a real crappy ride. Take care of you and him and the little ones.

*Turning lurk mode back ON. Until there are more books in the offer, that is* >_>

Me too please! I read it via Interlibrary Loan early in your challenge, but couldn't really play along since it had to be returned in just a few weeks, so I had to plow through it fast and then send it back. If I win the drawing I will donate it to my local library branch so that we have a copy for others to read!
