Back To School Week Giveaway from...JustBento!

First of all, I’d like to thank everyone for participating in all the giveaway drawings during Back To School week - it’s been fun! (Even with the multiple server crashes!) Special thanks go out of course to the great companies who donated prizes. I also hope the three features have been useful too!

And now the final giveaway prize for this event - something that’s rather close to my heart…

It’s a signed copy of The Just Bento Cookbook, authored by yours truly. My precious stash of author’s copies is just about all spoken for already to be sent to family and friends (I did have to convince my father that he has to wait for the 15 copies he requested), but I have reserved one just for…you!

If you’re new to the site, read more about the book here and take a peek inside.

How to enter the Just Bento Cookbook giveaway

Update: The giveway is now closed…wow, we got more than 1,000 entries! Thank you everyone who participated - the winner will be announced later this week.

This giveaway is open to everyone, worldwide. If someone in Antarctica wins, I’ll mail it there!

To enter, just leave a comment to this post. Since I’m always curious as to where people who read this site are, just say what town, state (if applicable) and country you’re commenting from. (No need to be too specific - I’m not going to come and stalk you ^_^)

Be sure to include a valid email address where you can be contacted in the appropriate text box! Your comment must be posted by 23:59:59 EDT (U.S. East Coast Time) (or just before midnight) of Wednesday, August 25th 2010. One lucky entry will be drawn at random to receive a signed copy of the book. Good luck!

So, this is the last giveaway of Back To School Week 2010. I hope you enjoyed it!

I'm in Birmingham, UK. Not the greatest place in the world, but it does have a little "China Town" with a couple of really good chinese supermarkets which are fantastic for getting little things for my bentos (as well as buying rice in bulk).

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from From...JustBento!

I'm in-between right now - Kingman, AZ, USA, and Terre Haute, IN, USA. Both kinda small, though Kingman is basically a collection of gas stations and motels beside Rt66. Terre Haute has a few colleges, so it's bigger and better, though still small when you place it next to somewhere like Indianapolis. ;D

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from From...JustBento!

Congratulations on publishing your book! I've followed your blog for about two years now and have complete faith that it will be one of the more frequently bought Bento books (by myself for one!).
