Friday Giveaway- Win This Book

I just finished reading Alternadad, by Neal Pollack, and I can't wait to pass it along to a reader.
In this book Neal recounts his adventures into parenthood.  He's honest and raw, and a parent that we can all relate to.  Here is what John Hodgman had to say about Mr. Pollack: “Neal Pollack has a well documented history of putting himself into ridiculous positions, but never so literally… If Eat, Pray, Love had been written by a sweaty, aging, male smartass, then that book might be called Stretch, and Elizabeth Gilbert would be named Neal Pollack.”

To win this book tell me what you are thankful for this holiday season (you can be sarcastic or not).  Winner will be randomly chosen on Sunday.


  1. I'm thankful for being nowhere near a Walmart today.

  2. Dan Schneider, for making kid's television suck a whole lot less.

  3. Alcohol, and I am not being sarcastic.

  4. I'm thankful for a wonderful Thanksgiving with family...and the relaxation of a wonderful Pre-Thanksgiving weekend with a great friend of mine!!

  5. 1. Having family in town and celebrating holidays together
    2. A husband who loves to cook and bake
    3. A healthy new baby named Eden
    4. Living in (mostly) sunny CA
    5. Proximity of our house to a lovely park
    6. Netflix instant movies
    7. Hand me down baby girl clothing
    8. ice cream
    9. grandparents who take care of our children
    10. a sarcastic and witty sister in law(does this get me an extra chance in the drawing?) :-)

  6. And the randomly picked winner is "Mommy"!!! I hope you enjoy this book with a nice glass of wine.

  7. However, "Mommy", I need your contact information so that I can pass along this awesome piece of literature. Please email me!
