Win your own Dangerous Book for Boys!

Yesterday, Fawn noted that the Harper Collins contest to win a free copy of the Dangerous Book for Boys is only open to Americans. I sent a note to Andi at MotherTalk (editorial aside: Andi is the nicest. person. ever!) and she confirmed with the publisher that yes, the contest is only open to US residents. Sigh. It’s hard being a Canadian sometimes. We can’t vote for your American Idols, some of the coolest online stores don’t ship to us, and you don’t let us apply to be contestants on Survivor or the Amazing Race.

BUT! The publisher offered me a free copy of the book to share with one of you. That’s a nice compromise, don’t you think?

If you’d like to win your own copy of the Dangerous Book for Boys (see my review here if you missed it yesterday), leave a comment on this post. I’ll leave it open through next Tuesday, May 15.

I’ll play!
Sounds like great bathroom reading!

I’m in. I love books. All books, especially of the free variety…

I would love it! Amelia has an inner boy that is just dying to be fed. Jaimie too. πŸ˜‰

Ooo, ooo, pick me! And I might let my son and daughters read it after I’m done! The topics sound just as interesting for girls as well as for boys, so I’m a bit skeptical about the title. I want to read it for myself to see if it would be suitable for our family.
Well done asking the publisher to send a copy for Canadian parents to win.

Will it be a random draw or a prize for the most interesting post? If the former, I’m in, but otherwise, not feeling too creative today… πŸ˜‰

I meant to add – pretty cool that you got them to do this!

7 liz May 10, 2007 at 9:01 pm

Please pick me!!!

But is your contest open to US Citizens? LOL!
I’m finding the title unfortunate, but darnit, that book would have really, really REALLY appealed to me as a kid, and it still appeals to me now.
And now I have to go help my kids build a bridge out of fallen tree branches across the streamlet at the back of our lot…. πŸ™‚

I want to say that I have two girls. And girls can do anything boys can do. And if we had this gem of a book we could totally prove it.;)

Let me get in on this…I have 2 boys and just bought a daycare that’s enrollment is 70% boys…I need to move this little fellows into boy-hood with a scream…

Oh! Oh! Mr. Kotter! Pick me! I have two nephews who would love to read it. I also have me who would love to read it. And then there’s my girlfriend’s two daughter…okay, they might not be that interested…the youngest one maybe but that’s a stretch. The rest of us would enjoy it though.

Swell. I saw the author speak on (I think) the Colbert Report. Brilliant.
Please count me in for the drawing if you’re letting us damn Americans enter. πŸ™‚

13 Rebecca May 11, 2007 at 10:14 am

Do I count as a non-American? If so, count me in πŸ™‚

14 DaniGirl May 11, 2007 at 11:28 am

You guys make me laugh! No exclusivity here – boys and girls of all nationalities may apply.

15 hw May 11, 2007 at 1:35 pm

oh, oh, oh, I’d like to win.
My two kids (boy and girl) would love this.
Hopefully they’d love some of the activities enough that it would distract them from being raccoon hunters (we just found a family last night that has moved into our garage!!)

16 Lara May 11, 2007 at 2:50 pm

Sounds like a great read – I’d have to fight my husband on who got to read it first I’m sure. Count me in!

17 cinnamon gurl May 11, 2007 at 4:31 pm

I tried to comment yesterday but it got eaten. I’d love to put my gender concerns aside and win a free copy!

18 Karen May 12, 2007 at 1:09 am

Could you pop my number in the draw too? Sounds perfect for my three kids aged 40-ish, 7 and 2.

19 snackmommy May 12, 2007 at 4:31 pm

Hmmmm, my comment must have been eaten too.
I recently read a review on this book and thought it was great that it allowed boys to become a little messy. Although my husband calls me a hypocrite as I won’t allow our son to play with toy guns.
I would most love to be in your draw as Tristan (mine) is so curious, and I think we would have a lot of fun this summer with this type of book….not to mention the mischief that could be passed on to Sawyer in years to come.
I’m not above grovelling…or bribery :~)

20 yvonne May 14, 2007 at 2:05 pm

I want in on this one!

21 Patrice May 14, 2007 at 5:58 pm

Looks like a great book for me to read so I can impress my boys! So many things to know and so little time. I imagine my hubby would like it peruse it as well (father’s day gift perhaps?!) Please count me in for the draw that is if you’re allowing those of us from the dark side (Quebec) in! Have a good day!

22 Fawn May 15, 2007 at 6:05 pm

Phew! It’s DANGEROUS to take a couple of days off! I almost missed this post, and I DEFINITELy want to play along. Thanks for arranging this, Dani. πŸ˜€
