Back To School Week Giveaway from...JustBento!

First of all, I’d like to thank everyone for participating in all the giveaway drawings during Back To School week - it’s been fun! (Even with the multiple server crashes!) Special thanks go out of course to the great companies who donated prizes. I also hope the three features have been useful too!

And now the final giveaway prize for this event - something that’s rather close to my heart…

It’s a signed copy of The Just Bento Cookbook, authored by yours truly. My precious stash of author’s copies is just about all spoken for already to be sent to family and friends (I did have to convince my father that he has to wait for the 15 copies he requested), but I have reserved one just for…you!

If you’re new to the site, read more about the book here and take a peek inside.

How to enter the Just Bento Cookbook giveaway

Update: The giveway is now closed…wow, we got more than 1,000 entries! Thank you everyone who participated - the winner will be announced later this week.

This giveaway is open to everyone, worldwide. If someone in Antarctica wins, I’ll mail it there!

To enter, just leave a comment to this post. Since I’m always curious as to where people who read this site are, just say what town, state (if applicable) and country you’re commenting from. (No need to be too specific - I’m not going to come and stalk you ^_^)

Be sure to include a valid email address where you can be contacted in the appropriate text box! Your comment must be posted by 23:59:59 EDT (U.S. East Coast Time) (or just before midnight) of Wednesday, August 25th 2010. One lucky entry will be drawn at random to receive a signed copy of the book. Good luck!

So, this is the last giveaway of Back To School Week 2010. I hope you enjoyed it!

Hello from Mexico City, I love your blog and all of the cute bento stuff you post.

Re: Back To School Week Giveaway from From...JustBento!

hi!!!
I got this in my inbox this morning, and instantly got soooo excited to see a book like this!!!!
my kids love making bento boxes for their lunches for school...
but since we REALLY don't know how to make a true bento box, we fill them with things like... mini tuna sandwiches, string cheese, hard boiled eggs, baby corn... anything we can find that will fit...
they never come out pretty like in the pics you have here.... but, the kids are happy.
I couldn't even imagine the looks on their face when they started opening their bento boxes and saw stuff like this!!!!! :o)

congrats on your book!!!
I will share the link from amazon with my friends on facebook... and I hope you do very well!!!!

Another bento enthusiast and JustBento/JustHungry fan currently living in Macomb, OK, USA. My brother is half-Japanese and I've often used recipes at Just Bento or Just Hungry to recreate the tastes I enjoyed during my few years as a youngster in Okinawa.

As the mother of teens, I've found bento is a wonderful way to assure we're all eating well despite our busy schedules!

Hi! I'm here from Sault Ste Marie, Ontario, Canada; my interest in bento and Japanese food got kick-started when I was an exchange student in Maebashi (日本群馬県前橋市).

Thanks for all your recipes and posts -- it really helps me to make the best use of the few Japanese ingredients we can get up here.
