Ultimate Giveaway!

Photobucket


Remember my review of The Ultimate Runner? I know some of you said you were interested in checking it out. Well, here's your chance!

Amy and Tom at Runners' Lounge have graciously given me 3 copies of the book to give away to my loyal blog readers.

Want to win one?

Here's how:

  • For one entry, leave me a comment recommending a book (either running or non-running related).

  • For a second entry, post about the giveaway in your blog (and leave me a link in the comments).

  • And if you really, REALLY want to win, you can get a third entry by joining the Runners' Lounge (or letting me know if you are already a member) or following their blog and letting me know in a comment which one you do.


  • The giveaway will be open until May 27th. Winners will be chosen by random. And three different people will win, I promise! Good luck!

    Scary stuff. Honestly, I never run with my road id. I only use it on bike rides. I guess thats gonna change now. You never know.

    What an interesting book! I like to think of myself as a runner, even if I only do the occassional 5k race!

    I live in Chicagoland too - NW suburbs! I am actually reading Julie & Julia now, my co-worker finally remembered to bring it in for me to read - its a quick read too!

    This isn't a running book, but I LOVED "Into Thin Air." Couldn't put it down!

    Wellll, I'm already a member of Runner's Lounge, and I read them, of course.

    I just listened to the audiobook for "Remember Me" bu Sophie Kinsella and I really liked it. Cuz I love crappy chick lit. I think you like more quality stuff than that, hahaha. But there's a recommendation.

    And I will link the post when I blog next... do don't give me that entry quite yet. Lol.

    Oh yay! I thought this book sounded like something I would really like.

    Can I recommend the book you gave me?! HA HA. One of my favorite childhood books is The Giver by Lois Lowry. I know it is meant for kids but I love it. Have you heard of it/read it?

    Erin, the book I recommend is Outliers: The Story of Success. It reminds me of running because it focuses on the amount of time you need to spend on something to become really good at it.

    OK, no running book here - Bookends by Jane Green. No wait, any book by Jane Green.

    I haven't been reading much lately, but I really enjoyed Karen Chance's "Cassandra Palmer" series. The first book is "Touch the Dark."

    Haven't read a lot of books about running, but of the ones I've read I really enjoyed "Born to Run: A Hidden Tribe, Superathletes, and the Greatest Race the World Has Never Seen" - it's a fascinating book and a very quick read.

    Just joined the Runner's Lounge - looks like another interesting way for me to spend far too much time at my computer.

    I'll link to your giveaway in my next blog post, and link back in these comments.

    I recommend My Horizontal Life by Chelsea Handler for a quick, lighthearted, funny read! :)
