Winners of the 2013 Veggie Love Book Raffle!

Anne Hathaway with her OscarBefore I open the envelope, er… that is, before I read the randomly generated winner from Rafflecopter, I want to thank the Academy… er, no, I actually mean sincere gratitude to all who helped with this, my first foray into guest posting. A Month of Veggie Love went smoother, bigger, sometimes sillier and generated more fun emails, new friends, recipes and stories than I could have hoped! Special thanks to Renea Winchester, author of In the Garden with Billy: Lessons about Life, Love and Tomatoes for donating her book for this fun month. (Read about her other books here.)

[Oh, and yes, Anne Hathaway is a vegetarian. Gorgeous, huh?]


The three books for the giveaway are…

Herbivoracious: A Flavor Revolution with 150 Vibrant and Original Vegetarian Recipes by Michael Natkin, In the Garden with Billy: Lessons about Life, Love and Tomatoes (autographed) by Renea Winchester and The Speedy Vegetable Garden by Mark Diacono and Lia Leendertz.

The First Place Winner is Abby V. Congratulations! (wild applause)

Winner #2 is Rick S. Yay! (continued wild applause)

And Winner #3 is Wayne S. Hooray! (even more applause)

No, I didn’t do them in reverse order because enough with the anticipation already! Look for your email soon!

We also were able to donate a bit to the Atlanta Food Bank for the sale of the shirts on Zazzle. They are still available here and run very, very small. I’ll find a new distributor next time.
