Things are wrapping up here in the Criddle household as we get ready to relocate to Japan! My scanner and my tablet are both gone with the movers and the computer is set to jump on a cargo ship in a day or two. So no more drawgs (for a while), but that doesn't stop me from blogging with other things! (Just no blogging with my phone. Baby ate both the "a" and the "w" buttons. It would be a bit hard to read.)
So as a thank you for sticking with me for so long, I thought I'd do a little giveaway! What better way to say "sayonara, America" than with one of my favorite books:
THE STRANGE CASE OF ORIGAMI YODA by Tom Angleberger!
(Get it? Origami? Because...uh...Japan? Okay, let's move on.) And for your own origami needs and whims:
EASY ORIGAMI by John Montroll!
And how can you do origami without:
72 SHEETS OF FANCY PANTS ORIGAMI PAPER!
And once you make some Yodas, sit down with sushi and some:
FANCY CHOPSTICKS with their own handy CARRYING CASE!
And if that's not enough, you can remember yours truly by reading about some really surly unicorns with another one of my favorite books:
I know it's been out for a while, but it's a KILLER book, people. Unicorns! Killer unicorns! Hot boys! Italy! You WANT this book. You want it like a surly unicorn wants rainbow chip cupcakes.
So how to win this awesome and HUGE prize? Just leave a comment! Tell me what fabulous summer read I should take with me on the plane. Any favorites you've read in the past few months? Any oldies but goodies you just have to recommend? I'll take 'em all!
And if you want to increase your chances of winning, here's a bit of extra credit:

Add them up and make sure to leave your email/twitter handle in your comment so I can get a hold of you...and that's it! I'll pick a lucky winner in ONE WEEK (August 11th) so get those sacrifices to the random number gods a-burning! (Oh, and it IS open internationally! Australia, you know you want somma this.)
