Contest - Win The Unofficial Hunger Games Cookbook, The Unofficial Game of Thrones Cookbook and a $100 Threadless Gift Certificate
If you list the things I love in the world, food and books would be near the top (along with music, friends, and family). Just as I am fascinated where music intersects with literature, I am also drawn to that part of the Venn diagram where books and food share space. This week two such cookbooks arrived on my doorstep, The Unofficial Hunger Games Cookbook: From Lamb Stew to "Groosling" - More than 150 Recipes Inspired by The Hunger Games Trilogy by Emily Ansara Baines and The Unofficial Game of Thrones Cookbook: From Direwolf Ale to Auroch Stew - More Than 150 Recipes from Westeros and Beyond by Alan Kistler. With my cookbook bookshelf nearing capacity, I decided to give this interesting pair away.
To enter this week's contest, name the book you would most like to see be the inspiration for a cookbook. My choice: Home at the End of the World, by Michael Cunningham. If nothing comes to mind, feel free to list your favorite dessert (mine: ice cream).
One winner, chosen randomly from the commenters, will receive the following prizes:
a copy of The Unofficial Hunger Games Cookbook: From Lamb Stew to "Groosling" - More than 150 Recipes Inspired by The Hunger Games Trilogy by Emily Ansara Baines
a copy of The Unofficial Game of Thrones Cookbook: From Direwolf Ale to Auroch Stew - More Than 150 Recipes from Westeros and Beyond by Alan Kistler
A $100 Threadless gift certificate to buy book-related t-shirts like A Voyage of Discovery, A Book Lover, November Was a Good Month, Brainy Rainbow, or Word!, music-related t-shirts like The Official Guide to Music, Boom Box, Sound of the Dark, or anything else that catches your fancy.
The winner will be chosen randomly at midnight ET Friday evening (March 30th).
