Food, Inc. Book Giveaway Contest!

As vegans (or people who are close to vegans or are just interested in veganism), I imagine that most of you are interested in food, where your food comes from, and the impact of the food industry on health and the environment. Because food has now become an 'industry'. Well, for those of you that are interested in all of these matters, there is a new movie opening Friday, June 12 in select cities (and expanding throughout June and July) that will most likely tickle your pickle: Food, Inc.
'go see this movie!  moo!'

Not only will you, most likely more informed and lovely people who read my blog, find this movie intriguing, but I hope that it opens the eyes of others to the travesty that has become what most people in our nation have come to think of as 'food'.  

In light of all this awesomeness, the movie's PR lady, Janeal, asked if my readers would like a chance to win the companion book for Food, Inc. and Fast Food Nation, by Eric Schlosser.  I responded with a resounding 'heck yes!' or something of that nature.  I know that you all like to be informed and smart, and these books will get you one step closer to ultimate awesomeness.  Therefore, if you'd like to enter this contest, you must do one of 3 things:

1. Twitter - 
2. Post on Facebook - 
3. Blog - 
--- about Food, Inc. with a link to their webpage, so as to get the word out to those who may not yet know about it.  Then come back here with the link to what you posted, and leave it in the comments section.  Normally, I wouldn't require anything so strenuous (ha) of you, but I really, really want people to know about this movie.  So go spread the word!

If your blogger profile does not link to your email, make sure also that you leave your email address in the comment.  If you do not have a valid email address that I can access, I'll have to disqualify you.  (Sorry!  But last time I had a contest, the winner never left their email and I ended up having to choose someone new, anyway.)  Contest ends next Thursday, June 18th, and I will use a random number generator to pick one winner.  Get going and report back, go go go!

I would love a copy of both! Can't wait to see "Food, Inc." And though I have read "Fast Food Nation," I would love to reread and share it with friends and family.

I tweeted and am really interested in this movie. Fast Food Nation was so interesting and thought provoking, and I really hope this has a similar effect!

I loved Fast Food Nation, I gave it to my brother and he went Veg! I wish Food, Inc. was opening here - reading it would be good!
