Contest: Parenting: Illustrated with Crappy Pictures

If you’re not reading Amber Dusick’s hilarious blog, Parenting. Illustrated with Crappy Pictures, you’re missing out. Fortunately, she just came out with a book, and the total-surprise-of-a-title is—you guessed it!—Parenting: Illustrated with Crappy Pictures.

I happen to have a copy of this book, because her publicist sent it to me. I’m a longtime reader of her blog and figured the book would just be stuff I’d already read, but there’s a ton of new stuff in there, plus I was mostly too busy chortling to take note of what I’d seen before and what I hadn’t. Girlfriend is funny.

Want to win a copy? Of course you do! I’ll send a copy to one lucky reader. First go review the contest rules and regulations, then come on back here and leave a comment on this post by 8:00 a.m. Eastern (that’s 5:00 a.m. Pacific) on Saturday, March 30th, 2012 for a chance to win. I’ll use my WordPress number-picker-plugin-thingie (technical term) to choose the winner.

Ready? Go!
