A few years ago, I was talking about my love of cooking with a client and we were comparing notes on our favorite cookbooks. When they left the office, I sent them a copy of my favorite cookbook and my quarterly book giveaway was off and running.
That fall, I created a quick email and gave away 10 copies of Finding Yourself in the Kitchen by Dana Velden. The folks who weren't the first 10 asked when the next giveaway was, and around Valentine's Day, we moved on to In a French Kitchen by Susan Herrmann Loomis.
It's not always cookbooks. As the weather gets warmer, I try to find some good books for summer reading and then something around back-to-school time to get us all in the mood for the final quarter of the year.
My most recent book giveaway was The Winter Table by Lisa Lemke, a great cookbook for those cold winter nights.
The giveaway list is open to clients and non-clients and it costs you nothing but an email address. If you get one of the books, it's mailed out to you for free! You can even have it sent to someone else as a gift (although I don't do gift-wrapping). So, if you're interested in getting on the list, fill out the short form below and check your inbox in February, May, August and November to see what that quarter's book is.
