Mother’s Day eReader Giveaway!

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.Β  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.

But I got right to work on blogging and doing some preliminary updating for some blog changes. I’m reading lots of blogs and leaving lots of comments. It would be great to win the two Nooks and if I did, I’d share it with my sister, Ele. Our Mom is gone and she lost her daughter to cancer 5 years ago. We always spend Mother’s Day together.

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.

    So far, I am having a great day. I teach 8th grade, and my students are really enjoying a book that we are reading in class (The Ghost Belonged To Me). It’s a book that I read in Middle School, and I knew that they would enjoy it, as the school year begins to draw to a close. Thanks for a great giveaway!

    My day was going wonderfully for a while. Despite the high humidity my curly hair dried well and i was actually running 15 minutes early! Then i hit road construction and they had put a stop sign at a huge intersection which turned into a game of “quien es mas macho?”.

    My day is going GREAT! One week agoyesterday I lost a very close family member and was distraught. The day after my loss my husband was hospitalized. I felt like things couldn’t be worse. Yesterday my husband was discharged. I have my husband and three sons all under one roof again and I feel blessed….even on this rainy Wednesday. Family makes my world go ’round ;0)

    I can’t complain about today! I am getting my picture taken to go on the soccer roster today, I’m going to work at the praline shop, and then hopefully going on my 5 mile jog around the Battery (hoping I have the energy after I get off work). I just read that waking up to green tea helps to boost immunity and so do mushrooms in your salad!

    My day is okay so far. I’ve been going through a rough few weeks (my bf and I broke up and I’m trying to find a new place to stay and will basically be starting a new life), but I’ve found that being positive and appreciating the little things in my life that I love so much make everything better.

    Hey Jenna! My day is going pretty well so far! I completed a work out and drank a smoothie before work πŸ™‚ 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.

    I actually read this book back in January and LOVED it. It is very similar to my current situation (the moving home, bad breakup, trying to get my life on track in my mid-late 20’s). 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!

    This book was great-I downloaded it when you posted about it months ago! It’s rainy in Philadelphia (can’t always be sunny, eh?) but that just means a big, hot pot of soup for dinner-any vegetarian or seafoody suggestions? Hope you’re feeling better-a hot shower and some kitty snuggles do wonders.

    My day has been busy – I’ve been up since 6 a.m., lured my little brother (he slept over last night and is turning 12 tomorrow) with a homemade breakfast burrito with onion, turkey sausage, eggs, cheese, and a tortilla. 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 πŸ™‚

    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 πŸ™‚

    It’s 11:11..I think that’s a sign that my day should be turning awesome. At the moment I am very content and enjoying my hour break before my next shift at the gym I work at on campus. Let me tell you though I’ve been so overwhelmed. I’m a senior and it’s the whole I need to find a job/study for exams/ soak in these last precious moments/ prepare for my first half marathon this Saturday. I’m stressed. But looking on the bright side because life is good πŸ™‚

    Starting off this day with only about an hour and a half of sleep after a tough night with my 6 month old. The day is shaping up though since my 3 year old is being a sweetheart, the coffee is kicking in and the sun is shining outside. Now if the baby feels better soon and we don’t have to go to the dr’s. office, it will be a good day indeed! Hope you feel better soon too. πŸ™‚

    I’m a Labor and Delivery Nurse and my day started off in full force right when I hit the door this morning so this is the first chance I’ve really had to sit down. Yesterday was way better just because I got to feel two little kicks from a little boy baby growing inside of me. 17 weeks and two days and I couldn’t feel more blessed!

    P.S. Totally had the sinus infection gunk the beginning of this week so I’m totally feeling ya! It’s a good time to curl up with your cat (or in my case, two cats) and let your body heal. πŸ˜‰

    This may come through twice. I couldn’t tell if it was submitted before – sorry. Anyway, my day is going good except for my hotspot wifi seems to be challenged which is par for the course. It’s windy and sunny here on the edge of the Mojave and the sheep are back so I woke to the sound of the leader bell and the sound of hundreds of hooves on dirt as they passed by under my window. Hope you feel better.

    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.

    xo Lily

    My day is so far going awesome! I got up and drank a smoothie and I’m about to walk my dog with a couple of my neighbors. Then it’s work, lunch and some “Poisonwood Bible”. And I have some yummy looking swiss chard for dinner.

  • Lauren

    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!

  • Leanne

    My day is going quite well! A strong, steaming cup of coffee and big yogurt n’ fruit bowl with chia, flax, oats, and nuts were thoroughly enjoyed whilst watching the sunrise. I’ve already gotten a brisk four miler under my belt and was lucky enough to be accompanied by my two lovely dogs. Now, my workday is beginning and with it the chance to read this book and many others! I was quite disappointed when I couldn’t find How To Love An American Man at my local library, after reading your review of it, Jenna. As much as I love the feeling of an actual book, a Nook would be such a luxury! I drag around three books at a time usually. Good luck to everyone! Beautiful days all around! Also, I do apologize for my writing. I know my English sentence structure is still not the best. Something to be improved upon by more reading!

    In my dream world, my day has consisted of snuggling up with my cats, a cozy blanket, and a long book to read. In reality, I came in to work early, had a million things go wrong, and don’t anticipate lunch for another hour or two. On the plus side, at least I can still go home tonight and do everything I wanted to anyway!

    My day is crazy! I work at a tiny nonprofit and our biggest event of the year is coming up in 8 days, we also have 3 grants going out this week so it’s been total hyper-drive. Reading your site for a pick-me-up as I hurredly eat my sammie. Not gunna lie, also pretty happy for this chance to vent πŸ™‚

    Today is an exciting day. I am meeting my family at the airport and we are all flying over to England (where the rest of my family lives) to spend my 25th and my mother’s 50th birthday together. It has been years since we’ve been able to coordinate everyone to be together at one time and it is long overdue.

    Wow, this would be great for my mom and I!. She would love it.
    Today, I finished up my second to last exam….only one more to go. Yes!
    Also, being sick is no fun. I hope you feel better.

    My day is going great! I have just finished my very last assignment after six years of Architecture school! I am graduating in a week, and I will then be taking a 2 month road trip with my mother actually. So these would be excellent for some mother daughter reading on our down time!

    It’s definitely a “so far, so good” day for me! Lots left to do, but can’t complain about my progress thus far. And I’ve been listening to some Elton John in the background all morning, which of course brightens any day!

    Hi Jenna! What a sweet giveaway!! I am also sick – very sick – with no voice and a terrible chest cold (praying that I can miraculously make a full recovery in time to run Broad Street Run here in Philly by Sunday!) Hope you feel better ASAP as well <3

    Oh my gosh my day is not going well! The subway I was on this morning stalled between stations so we all had to walk to the back and climb out the last car which was thankfully still in the station we had left. That made me 15 minutes late for my doctor’s appointment (pre-surgery testing for this Monday’s wrist surgery), but that was ok because I had to wait an hour and a half to be seen anyway! Plus it’s raining and NYC is no fun in the rain. And I wore Tom’s instead of rain books because all they predicted this morning was a few showers in the afternoon!

    But I’m eating a delicious salad, actually one you turned me on to, it’s romaine and feta with a veggie burger and then siracha, tahini, and balsamic as the dressing. Look at that, that coincidence made me smile!
