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.

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!

Hi Maki!
I'm writing from San Leandro, CA, in the Bay Area. So excited about your new book, and looking forward to reading it! You've been a huge influence on my bento-life, and I bet you hear that a LOT. So thanks very much for your informative and interesting site. You are a treasure trove of information and I think you're the go-to bento guru.
Congrats!

I love your website - I live in Burlington, Massachusetts USA, which is about 15 miles northand west of Boston, so I'm in the Boston MetroWest area. My 16 year old daughter loves the idea of bentos for lunch, so we get some great ideas from your website, and would love to win a copy of the book.

Congrats on the book - best wishes to you.

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

Thanks for a great Bento site! I'm out here in a small city near Ft. Worth Texas. Just sent my kids back to school today with their very first bento lunches. Probably the only parent in the school and perhaps in the district doing bento right now.

Hi
I live in Southsea on the sunny south coast of England. I returned from my first (it won't be my last!) trip to Japan last week - travelling from Fukuoka to Sapporo visiting many wonderful places on the way. I knew I would love the food and I was not disappointed! When I returned I got straight onto the net to find out more about how to cook japanese food and how to fill the bento box I bought from Daiso - I quickly came across Just Hungry and Just Bento. I'm gathering the right ingredients at the moment and am looking forward to trying out some recipes as soon as possible.

Right now I live in a tiny town outside Austin, Texas...but originally, I'm from Billings, Montana. I'm looking forward to making lots of bento lunches for myself and my roommate during this fall and winter, and sharing recipes with my little sister. Thanks, Maki-san, for having such a great pair of websites; Just Bento and Just Hungry have really saved me during this past year! ^_^
