Giveaway: Corked by Kathryn Borel

Hachette Book Group is allowing me to give away two copies of Corked by Kathryn Borel, a memoir about wine, fathers, and daughters. I have my copy sitting on the pile of books to be read sooner rather than later and I'd love to have two of my readers read their own copies along with me! Interested in joining me for a buddy read? Here's what Hachette says about the book:

Meet Kathryn Borel, bon vivant and undutiful daughter. Now meet her father, Philippe, former chef, eccentric genius, and wine aficionado extraordinaire. Kathryn is like her father in every way but one: she's totally ignorant when it comes to wine. And although Philippe has devoted untold parenting hours to delivering impassioned oenological orations, she has managed to remain unenlightened. But after an accident and a death, Kathryn realizes that by shutting herself off to her father's greatest passion, she will never really know him.

If you'd like to read along with me, please read below first.

U.S. residents only.
No P.O. boxes.
Leave a comment below with an e-mail address so I can contact you if you win.
Contest ends April 15th (tax day, when most people need a drink, right?!) at midnight so get your tax return post marked and finish up any last minute entries here at the same time.

Since filling out your taxes is enough of a hassle, I'm not going to ask you to jump through any hoops for extra entries. Good luck! And though only two of you can win, may all of you get money back on your taxes (or at least not owe any additional money).

I have had to disable the anonymous comment option to cut down on the spam and I apologize to those of you for whom this makes commenting a chore. I hope you'll still opt to leave me your thoughts. I love to hear what you think, especially so I know I'm not just whistling into the wind here at my computer.
