Breakfast and a Contest!
Served around 8:45am on Thursday, at Zibetto. A cappuccino.
Lovely Heather, from the comments section around here, recently sent me a copy of A Question of Belief, A Commissario Guido Brunetti Mystery, by Donna Leon. I sped though the book, devouring all of the little details of Venetian life and intrigue during a hot Italian summer. And now, I want to be in Italy!
Since there's no way that is going to happen any time soon, I shall sate my desires with creamy coffee and high quality imported pastas for a while.
But in the meantime, why should I have all of the fun? I promised Heather that I'd pass the book along. So who wants it?
We have less than six weeks until my birthday, and I'm going to start celebrating now. Summer birthdays often get overlooked and I'm not having it this year! What better way to celebrate than to give out gifts!
Every week until my birthday, look for contests here at One Scheme of Happiness. I will be giving away yarn, books (new and used), kitchen gadgets and other whatnot. Keep your eyes on the site to watch for prizes!
I am passing along this (gently used) copy of the book to a commenter (US or International, it doesn't matter). This copy was purchased in New Zealand, so the cover is different from the Amazon version, and it is a paperback.
If you would like to have the book, please comment on this post and tell me about why you love Italy. Your comment must be posted by 11:59pm ET on Sunday, June 20th to qualify. Only one entry per person.
If you've been to Italy, tell me about your trip! If you haven't, tell me why you would like to go, or about a favorite Italian meal, movie or man!
One commenter will be drawn at random and I'll ship the book to you next week. I'll even include other goodies to brighten your day.
Got it? Okay ~ GO!
