Veganist: Big Giveaway!

Let me preface this blog by saying that nobody has sponsored today's giveaway, well beyond myself of course.

Yesterday I was out to lunch with Cordelia, my parents and my brother Sam. We were at the mall, weird tradition that sprung up from a group of people with serious dietary requirements. We sat around our little cafeteria table chatting and people watching. We have one woman that is always there and always has the same meal, but never the same seat. When we were done we started the familiar drift toward the coin operated rides, led by Cordelia. She loves to get on the rides, but does NOT want them to move which saves us quarters.

I decided to leave Cordelia in the care of my parents for a few minutes while Sam and I made a quick stop by the bookstore (even though I have a Kindle I still buy books). I started looking through the books, searching for nothing in particular. Shifting through books is something I just love to do, all of the potential in each book leaves me breathless. A story, some self-help, a little entertainment, enlightenment, whatever it is all there waiting for me and all I have to do is read.

My fingers stopped on the spine of Veganist:Lose Weight, Get Healthy, Change the World by Kathy Freston. Have you read it? I haven't read it yet, but I have heard good things. I also read several glowing reviews on Amazon. Sounds promising doesn't it? Want to read it with me? I happened to buy 3 extra copies to giveaway here...

Ooooh, pick me! Since I am new to being Vegan, I'd love to read this with you. In fact, even if I don't win a copy, I'll buy this book and still read it with you!

I am a fourteen year old vegan, so I am still in school and I would love to get the book just to get more ideas and inspiration. I especially felt adressed when she she wrote "change the world", because veganism is all about making a difference!
Thanks for the giveaway :)

Oh how exciting! I am a follower of yours and also a fellow vegan. My husband and I became vegans a year ago this week and couldn't be happier. I am always interested in reading more about the benefits of the vegan diet. Thanks so much for this giveaway!

I follow your blog on the site Vegblog with all the other blogs, I just go through the ones that are there and read them all. I like your blog and your family. I buy my books from Chapters or online. Have fun with the giveaway! I may try a contest or something similar with my blog too in about a year or so because I don't have much on my blog right now :)

I am interested in the book, well, because I want to continue to provide healthy meals for my family. I want my daughter to have a knowledge of food from a positive perspective and it begins with her parents. We have to lead by example.

This is awesome! I am a vegetarian and have been recently wrestling with the idea of going vegan and leading my 11 month old baby along the same path. I would love to read this book!
