Giveaway: The Thing About Thin

Hello friends and familiars,

I left one book off my "Read in January" list, not even on purpose, but it happens to be the book that I have an extra copy of to give away.

The sixth book on the list is The Thing About Thin, a nonfiction work by Sui Solitaire of Cynosure.

It slipped my mind as I compiled that list because I read it in unusual circumstances — I was one of her beta-readers prior to its release last month as an e-book, because it was partially inspired by a post of mine.

The post in question was one from last May, called "Self-esteem & happiness are not the ends."

The Thing About Thin uses its ideas a jump-off point, and it is fittingly subtitled Body Image, Eating Disorders, Resistance + What Really Matters. 

Other than my blurb on the book's page, this review covers nicely what I would say about the book if I were good at writing reviews. Basically: It's insightful and wise and strengthening, and I think its ideas are important medicine.

If you'd like to win this copy of The Thing About Thin, leave a comment with your email address. For an additional entry, you can spread the word at your own internet-space and leave me a second comment with a link to the pertinent post.

I'll close the comments at 11pm Pacific Standard Time on Monday the 27th, and randomly choose one entry.

Bonne chance!

I'd love to win this but it seems like a very important book and I'd love the chance to support women who forge their own path I think I will be buying this for myself. Good luck to everyone.

I adore Sui's work. I'm sure I could just as easily adore this book as well. =)

I would be so honored and excited to finally read this! Funds are a bit low for me otherwise I would have already invested in it and read it through the night!

This is such an important topic. If I don't win, I'll be looking for it for my kindle. This doesn't mean you shouldn't accidentally pick me though... (I know... so original.)

Every time it rains she just feels a lot better... 2/25/2012 12:09 PM
