Mother’s Day eReader Giveaway!

by jenna on May 2, 2012

Guys….today is a very special day.

Remember when I reviewed the book How to Love an American Man on the blog last November? I LOVED that book and have actually re-read it twice since.  Since then, the lovely author, Kristine Gasbarre, and I have formed a sweet and wonderful friendship. If you’ve read her book, let me assure you that Krissy is just as sweet and genuine as she comes off on the page. She was even kind enough to read an advanced copy of my own book and write a blurb for the back cover!

So, about a week ago, Krissy contacted me with a fun and unique idea. She asked me if I would be interested in hosting a giveaway for her! She had the thoughtful idea of giving away two Barnes and Noble Simple Touch Glow Nooks already pre-loaded with her book, How to Love an American Man, for Mother’s Day. How fun is that?!

The winner of this giveaway will receive two Nook eReaders—-one for you to keep and one to give to your mom, grandma, aunt, sister or whoever you choose to celebrate Mother’s Day with.

Winner will be chosen at random Friday night at 10pm PST. To enter, just leave a comment on this post telling me how your day is going! I’m still home sick but looking forward to being cheered up by reading all your comments!

This giveaway is sponsored by Kristine Gasbarre. No purchase necessary to enter and win. Giveaway only open to legal residents of The United States. Eat, Live, Run is not affiliated with giveaway sponsor and, thus, is not responsible for late or lost-in-transit prizes. Winner will be chosen at random.

Up early to pump some milk for my daughter (TMI?!), ’bout to go catch some more sleep before she wakes up…one training session at the gym, then I get to spend the entire day with her. I’d say I’m set up for a great day! Thanks for the opportunity!

My day is going to be long and tiring, but it will be well worth it! I am running our school book fair this week, and tonight is our Family Night Event. I have a 12 hour day ahead of me surrounded by kids ten and under, but their excitment over reading is well worth the long hours I will put it in this week.

My mom is a huge reader too, and her love of books inspired my own love of books, which has led to my current job as an elementary school library worker.

Hey Jenna! My day is going pretty well so far! I completed a work out and drank a smoothie before work :) quite a feat for a girl who loves her sleep. I am crossing my fingers hard on this one. My birthday always falls the day or two around mother’s day and i won’t be home to celebrate with my mom this year. It’s one of those things where you know it will be fine, but it doesn’t stop the tears from welling up a little when you realize it. Anyway my mom and I love to read so this would be a great gift for her!

We even both are called Kris by family members and have Italian-American families. I really connected with her story and have recommended it to other friends. This is a great giveaway!

Then we went for a lovely walk around the lake nearby where we saw geese with little babies! After that, it was time to get ready for the day, drive him to school with literally 3 minutes to spare before he would’ve been late to class, and onto work.

So far, so good. Now all that’s left is to work the rest of the day and visit my mom who is recovering from appendicitis. *whew*

My day has got off to a fantastic start! It’s such a small world ~ my mom was handling some business at work and it turns out, she was on the phone with a former spinning instructor of mine! He asked if she knew me and said he was thinking about me and was willing to sneak me back into the club for a class. That definitely brought a smile to my face :-)

I just realized that, despite being a long-time reader, I’ve never left you a comment! I love your blog and have made so many of your recipes – one of my favorites is your Mediterranean Quinoa salad :-). So anyway, since I’ve never left some love before, I’ll say now thank you so much for sharing your wonderful creations! They’ve helped me expand my tastes and try new things! (also your photography never ceases to make me drool). One of these days I’m gonna invest in a cedar plank and grill some salmon, since you’ve been raving about that forever…haha

Anyway, the past few days have been cold and dreary out here on the East coast but the sun just peeked out so my day is already looking better! I hope the weather out West is nicer, and I hope you feel better soon!

P.S. Being a poor grad student, I’d love to win a nook for my Mom this year… but if I do somehow end up being the lucky winner, I only need one! Give the other one to someone else’s mom :-)

Hi Jenna,

First off, I love the idea of having a matching e-reader with my mom, Cindy! Neither of us have had the convenience and pleasure of one yet, and I haven’t been able to come up with a good present idea for Mother’s Day. Other than baking for her which I always do for holidays such as this.

I am in the middle of finals at University of Miami. I am studying Creative Writing and although I LOVE to write, it isn’t quite as enjoyable with huge scary deadlines such as a 25 page portfolio due tomorrow at 10 am. I just made a ginormous iced coffee with coconut-almond milk, and although the caffeine is helping me stay alert and awake, I am not at all doing what I should be.

Instead, I am reading your addicting blog and day dreaming about my summer in NYC! I got an internship with Sarah Copeland, author of The Newlywed Cookbook. I’ve known Sarah for a few years. (I met her at the Food Network Kitchens when I went there on my make-a-wish trip. I am a wish child/cancer survivor. She was the head baker at FN then and I got a tour and met all of my favorite chefs.) I will be helping her with the creation of her second cookbook that is due later this year. Food styling, food photography, editing, recipe development, and testing, newsletters, and social media/blog stuff. I am SO excited!

Well there was my ramble, day is going good and I am blasting MGMT throughout my apartment while it rains outside. I am cozy, and happy. And highly caffeinated.

Hi Jenna! My day so far tastes like the peach and strawberry smoothie I had for breakfast–sweet, tangy, and refreshing. I’m a Ph.D. student and just finished my last project for the year (well, except the ongoing summer research) yesterday. So, today is my first day of summer, and it’s goooood! I’m looking forward to starting some pleasure reading (dear Lord, please vanish all academic journal articles from the face of the earth). Books for the summer: Les Mis (again), The Hunger Games trilogy, the Outlander series, and whatever else I can get my paws on. Well, not both paws. Just one paw. The other paw will be holding a margarita, whiskey sour, or tangerine mimosa. Yes. YES!

I am currently counting down the minutes until lunch…my apple and orange are not holding me over well. I hope you get to feeling better and as always…I love your blog! Makes me smile every day!

Hi Jenna! Funny you should ask about the reader’s day. Today my husband and I are planning our second (wedding) anniversary trip to Mendicino, and I’m totally pitching your what look to be like fabulous ideas on what to do (must.have.firepot.soup.). So thank you for the tips and I hope you’re feeling better very soon :o)

My day is going ok. Started early and have a final tonight, but should be good. I hope everyone else is having a great day, too!

What a sweet idea! Thanks for the chance to win.
My day is going — just pushing through a pile of papers and projects to finish up my last semester of master’s coursework. :)
Feel better soon!

Hi Jenna!
I hope you’re feeling better soon! Today I’m lounging in the bed watching food network, wishing i felt good enough to make some of the stuff I’m watching. Yesterday I managed to stay up long enough to make my boyfriend two cheesecakes to take to work but other than that I’m afraid I’m being pretty useless.

Today isn’t so bad for a rainy Wednesday! Waking up to a warm latte courtesy of my hubs didn’t hurt, though!

My day has been great. I’ve played outside with my son, worked on some meal planning, paid bills (ugh) and am sitting down to a nice lunch and blog reading right now.
