WHAT'S UP DOWN THERE by Lissa Rankin, MD

WINNER ANNOUNCED: Congrats to--
qweska8402
You win the Vajayjay Book!
What's Up Down There?
(Get your mirror ready -- haha!)
So far, the two previous book winners have not contacted me about winning books though. I hope you are all coming back to see if you've won! I LOVE all the comments and look forward to reading them all and have lots more fun books to share with you throughout the rest of the month. And don't forget, if you didn't win this one today, you may still win the WHOLE KIT AND KABOODLE at the end of the month! I'm keeping diligent documents/excel sheets of EVERY SINGLE entry and will make sure each time you enter your name gets put in THAT many times at the end of the month toward the 31+ books! Thanks for your participation! 

I love seeing you repeat visitors and am starting to recognize you all and your humorous comments--thanks for making this a worthwhile project for me!

* * * * * * *

Welcome to the third day of MaNiC's Book-A-Day Giveaway! Thanks for coming back! But before we discuss today's book, which is all about va-ja-jays (don't be scared, we all have one!) I want to thank you for being so excited about this giveaway! Also, thanks to everyone for following all the rules and for leaving unique identifying names in your comments. You're making it sooo easy for me to keep track of all the entries.

One thing that might not have been clear is that you can only enter ONCE per book. I am keeping each book open and available for entries for two days after I post them in case you don't happen to get to a computer every day. So THAT's why I don't draw the names the day after I post. I give you a couple of days to enter. Just because I leave a post open, doesn't mean you can enter twice per book. I think there was some confusion on that, and I'm sorry for that. BUT, your name, whether you win a book or not, will go into the BIG DRAWING at the end of the month for the grand prize EVERY day you enter. Enter every day for every  book and your name will go into the grand prize drawing THIRTY-ONE times to win THIRTY-PLUS BOOKS!

To find out if you have won a book, go back to THAT post, and you will see the winner's name in the highlighted area in the beginning of the post. If it is YOU, please contact me with your mailing information!

And now, here we go, let's talk about VAGIGITIES! ... EVERYTHING you've EVER wanted to KNOW!



Book: What's Up Down There?

Author: Lissa Rankin, MD

Winner: qweska8402Lissa's Website: http://www.owningpink.com/




It’s a funny thing, the vagina. As women, we’ve got this body part that is something so sacred to us, yet there are so many things that are such a mystery to us still, even after we’ve had periods and sex, and pregnancies and cramps and babies.

You’d think with all this stuff going on and happening within this body part of ours, we’d have it all figured out by now. But I’m sure there are questions you’ve wanted answers to that you haven’t had the nerve to ask your own doctor, or you’ve discussed with girlfriends over cocktails late-night and laughed and wondered about, but never really got an answer to.

Author Lissa Rankin, M.D. has written a book that will completely demystify your vagina for you.

What’s Up Down There? Questions You’d Only Ask Your Gynecologist If She Was Your Best Friend answers all the questions you’ve ever thought to ask your gynecologist.

Seriously.

Because these are not the questions you’d ask your regular gyne at your regular Pap.

Lissa went to friends, family, and her online community to get the questions women wanted answers to. And they’re all here in her book.

Lissa’s book tells everything from how coochies smell and taste, to information on orgasm, boobs, peeing, periods, fertility, sex and masturbation. It’s packed with the information that you’re really dying to know and you should know, but you might be a bit too shy to chat with your own gynecologist about. Plus, your own gynecologist doesn’t have hours to sit and gab with you about all the stuff you’ll want to talk about!

The book is full of funny stories too, because obviously Lissa’s had her share of interesting situations as a gynecologist and she’s happy to share them with her readers. So, not only will you be educated, you’ll also laugh your way through What’s Up Down There too!


So, here’s how this works. Please leave a comment, and all those who do will qualify to win What's Up Down  There! I’ll draw the winner on March 5 (always TWO days after I post the daily book, unless it’s a weekend, I may allow for more time), and I will post the winner’s name at the TOP of this post, in the highlighted area. So you'll need to come back to THIS POST later to see if you have won this book.

Come back and read about each book every day in March. Choose the books you'd like to win. Enter for any or ALL the books. Each entry will count as an entry toward the grand prize of winning ALL 31+ books at the end of the month. You can win the book of the day and still qualify to win ALL the books at the end of the month!


PLEASE be specific with your name in the comment section, and IF YOUR NAME is listed as the winner, you must email me at stephanieelliot@gmail.com in order to claim your prize. Email me with your full name and address so I can have your book(s) sent to you.

Thanks, and GOOD LUCK! And come back tomorrow to see what book I’ll be giving away then too!

It’s MaNiC MoMMy’s March Madness Book-A-Day Giveaway! Read ALL the Rules and Details Here!

Sorry, only U.S. and Canadian residents only!

I love the title of this book. And the subject reminds me of a funny quote I heard recently - "Men would be more willing to talk to a woman about her period if women would refer to it as 'leaking from her ink sac'"!

Domesticated Gal said...

My husband's a doctor. So we hang out with a LOT of doctors. Which, you would think, would mean I'd have all the answers I ever wanted for down there. In reality? It just means that there are certain questions I'm NEVER asking my doctor. In office, or at Sunday brunch....

Hope C. said...

Having just watched the Vagina Monologues this past weekend, this book seems the perfect follow up!
