Holiday Entertaining Book Giveaway

Thanksgiving Feast

Update:  This giveaway is now closed. I will be announcing who the winners are no later than Sunday.  Also, stayed tuned for the contest – posted during the next week. For the new December contest click here

The best thing about November, in my opinion, is Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving is the time we all get together with our loved ones and put aside our differences, and just enjoy a good meal together.  In literature, the act of sharing a meal together is important to a story.  If you are breaking bread, you have put aside some type of fighting. Meal scenes are one of two things:  boring or intimate in nature.  However, even the boring ones can give you great insight into the dynamics of the different relationships of those ‘at the table.’

That said, this month’s book giveaway (Thank you, once again, Hatchette Book Group) is a random drawing for a set of five books which embody holiday recipes, stories of cooking and hosting parties.

To enter, you simply have to comment on this post with your favorite meal scene from any book or movie, OR your favorite thanksgiving meal memory.  The contest will end at midnight on November 21st 2008.  Four (4) winners will be picked randomly to win all 5 books and each winner will be notified by e-mail on Sunday, November 23rd 2008.
