Last month I featured Neil Pashricha's The Book of Awesome as part of the Amy Einhorn Challenge. Neil has a wonderful knack of noticing the little things that make life so great. I loved The Book of Awesome and have had a lot of fun sharing some of Neil's awesome moments with Mr. BFR, family, and friends. You might also remember that I mentioned I was going to hold a giveaway for signed copy of the book.
Neil came up with the great idea of for the contest: Each person who enters the giveaway must share one awesome moment because that's what The Book of Awesome is all about.
I'm excited to share with you Neil's awesome introduction to the giveaway:
Hi everybody,Awwwww! Thanks Neil! Here are two of mine:
Wow, thanks so much for featuring The Book of Awesome on Beth Fish Reads!
It's been a completely surreal dream for me to write about free, universal little things for the past two years. I am very honored that you've included me on your site and in the Amy Einhorn Challenge and I'd love to start the conversation here about awesome things! What's awesome to you in your life? What simple pleasures make you smile? Here are a few from the book!
I also want to add a new one: "Being featured on Beth Fish Reads!" Thanks so much, everybody. Hope you all have a very AWESOME day!
- When the cashier opens up a new lane at the grocery store. (Take about a major mood change in that lineup!)
- Getting called up to the dinner buffet first at a wedding.
- Fixing electronics by smacking them. (This works great on the CD player in my car. Smack, smack, smack away.)
- Waking up and realizing it's Saturday.
- The last day of school. (Is it just me or did it always seem like the teachers were even more excited?)
- Hearing the UPS truck coming down the street and realizing it's stopping in front of your house.
- Going to the office supply store for printer paper and coming home with a pack of cool pens in fun colors.
