Give-Away: A Few of My Favorite Things

If you read this blog, then you are likely aware of two of my favorite things of late: Patti Smith's memoir "Just Kids" and Liberty/ Merci's collaboration.

I came into possession of an additional copy of of "Just Kids" via KCRW's Bookworm Book Club (subscribe to KCRW, and become a member- I did! KCRW & Michael Silverblatt are also favorites mine).

I don't need two copies, so I'm giving one away, along with these journals and envelopes from Liberty's collaboration with Merci (the bracelets were sold out, sorry- I tried!).

You have until 12 midnight Pacific Time Easter Sunday (4/4/10) to enter. Just leave a comment under this post, tell me a couple of your favorite things. I'll draw the names of 3 winners at random, and announce the results Monday 4/5/10.

One person will receive 1 journal , another person will receive 1 journal and 1 envelope each, and one person will receive the book, a journal, and an envelope.

Good luck!

Hello! I'd love any (all, really) of the three. Some of my favorite things: a good cup of coffee on a lazy Sunday morning, strolling through flea markets, visiting used bookstores, reading outside on a sunny day, shuffling through a pile of fallen leaves.

Fine Little Day said...

I like your favorite things. It's hard to choose my own, have so many :) But today it's the easter eggs on our breakfast table, a new book about swedish pattern from the 60´s and a drawing from my son.

Adam said...

OK, I'm stacking the deck here by posting a comment. I want this too! I just had a conversation about this book with someone; the perfect companion to Please Kill Me. I'd buy it, but I have no money - have pity on me!

Um, favorite things? Christ, I dunno...modernism, parks on sunny days, beer, soccer, friends, punk. There you have it. Do what you will... We miss you guys! Adam.

Katie said...

This IS a great giveaway, Jennifer! Am I being too greedy after winning that amazing Mina Perhonen catalog last year?

If it's allowed, my favorites right now are:
Ramona, my almost 3-week old.
Sleep, when it comes.
That single cup of tea in the good.

Jennifer said...

Amy, Adam & Katie- you guys are too funny! I don't mind if you enter- I'm glad you did! I always get a little anxious about doing a give away "what if I throw a give away and no one enters" kind of thing. So I'm actually relieved that you all commented!

A & A- missed you two very much today at the Joller's Easter brunch! Holidays just aren't the same without you.

Katie- congratulations!! I've actually been checking the Slow Season website for updates-
Ramona is a great name, and I'm sure she's keeping you busy. Email me when the Slow Season is up & running (when you have time :)
so I can remind everyone here of your lovely work!

Love your blog. Easy reading. Inspiring. Nice. And I'm probably to late to enter the competition. Internet broke down in my area during easter, ad a strike, and the whole town practically stands still for weeks. That's sad, because I love Patti Smith.
