Don't know who Jennifer Weiner is?
Helloooo? Did you just crawl out from under a rock? Do you wear BLINDERS while walking past bookstores, going to Target, even the grocery store? She's everywhere.
Allow me, if I may, because I love sooo to enlighten:

Signed copies by Jen, to me. I have many more, but why
Well, OK, here are some more:
So, Jen's new book is coming out April 8th, JUST IN TIME FOR MY BIRTHDAY PRACTICALLY. Certain Girls is the continuation of GOOD IN BED, 13 years after the fact.
I first discovered Jen Weiner while living in PA; I had read about her in Philly magazine. This is when I was pregnant with Tukey, and was on the verge of 'thinking' about writing again. She inspired me! I was pregnant -- I went to the bookstore and asked, "Do you have GOOD IN BED?"
Obviously, I was already GOOD IN BED since I knew what I was doing in bed since I was pregnant, right? I knew what I was doing at least--I got that part right!
GOOD IN BED became my favorite book. Jen's writing is funny and quirky. She is real and doesn't sugar-coat! She started the whole snowball of Chickliterarism that led to so many more amazing authors to follow her lead!
So let's have a freaking Manic Mom party, shall we? I happen to have legally come across four copies of the newly revamped GOOD IN BED with a hot new cover and TWO hardback copies of Certain Girls, when really, I was supposed to only receive ONE COPY of Certain Girls, which I was supposed to have kept and read for myself.
Long story short, I tried to get Swishy a copy on eBay but failed, so one copy is going to her for a belated b'day, and one copy is going to someone out there! Because I am a Pay-It-Forward kinda gal (ALTHOUGH I AM READING IT FIRST!)
But not to worry, I have already ordered MY OWN COPY on Amazon but it's not arriving till May, hence the reason I'm reading YOUR copy first. But still, you'll get a copy, which may or may not make it more fun to know it's been pre-read by moi? You decide.
This contest may be the easiest one EVER! Leave me your name and an email address in the comments section. THAT'S ALL YOU HAVE TO DO!
Like the blood drive contest video drawing, I will pull names later this week to show you who has won the four copies of GOOD IN BED. From those four names, I will then pull one of those names to also win the pre-read copy of Certain Girls! As an incredible BONUS, all winners will also receive a Manic Mommy magnet. Too much to handle, I know.
So go ahead, leave your name and an email address where I can contact you, and let the fun begin! If you know of a Jennifer Weiner fan (and WHO DOESN'T??), please share the contest love!
