Taste of Home CONTEST!

Hi there!
Welcome back to another day here at Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers!  With all the talk about snow here and snow there (trust me, if you've been on Twitter at all, you've heard the talk), I was getting a bit home sick.  Now grant it, we've been down here for a considerable length of time, but nothing ever really compares with the memory of home, or where you grew up (especially when your second home only manages to get cold for a few days out of the year....).  Somehow its just ingrained in us and I think it's safe to say that whether you adored or wished to escape your hometown, it will always have a special place in your heart.

Today's post is one for the masses....who are the masses?  YOU, of course!  It's CONTEST time!  Whoo-hoo!  Thanks to Nicole over at Tribute Books, we have a copy of Scranton:  The Electric City by Alyssa Amori up for grabs!  While the subject of the book is not my actual hometown, it is close enough to take me on an unscheduled trip down memory lane.  I've actually seen in person a few of the places photographed in this book.  Whether you are seeking a reminder of home (like moi) or a great collection of photographs from in and around the city itself, this book is a great addition to your bookshelf or coffee table.  To get a sneek peek inside the book, follow the link in the authors name to her site, or check out my review.  Here's the contest breakdown:

There's no place like home, and yet home is what you make of it.

How sweet! And I completely understand, that's why I'm actually really happy to finally be done with school and be able to settle somewhere we can finally call "home". So nice!

I live in Wisconsin now, but New Jersey will always be my home. I do have a sister living in Scranton. I would love to win this.

Thanks for the chance.
