Win a Copy of Fringe Benefits!

Summer is not quite over. To celebrate the not-quite-overness, we're giving away a copy of Fringe Benefits, a very funny fourth in Valerie Frankel's hilarious Fringe series.
Dora Benet expected to enjoy Brooklyn Heights with her best buds and boyfriend, but everyone has their own plans for the summer and Dora finds herself alone. Her live-in bestselling authors/parents demand she get a job to learn the meaning of a dollar and so, with an apron in hand, Dora goes to work. Along with a paycheck, Dora will find herself with sultry new friends, a leukemic cat and worries that the boyfriend has left her behind.

Fringe Benefits was a witty read, and I was impressed that I could like a character by the name of Dora. Really! It's possible! The coolest part? This book is not available in stores until September 2nd.

To get your name entered into the hat, leave a comment and tell me about your ideal summer job. ("Doing nothing" does not qualify as an answer, along with "lifeguard watching.") If you spread the word about the contest through your own blog or website, send me an email and your entry counts twice. The deadline is Thursday, August 28th. Open to US-only residents; sorry, internationals.

Here's to Fringe Benefits and the final moments of summertime!

Looks like a great book! My ideal job would also be at an ice cream shop! I would be able to eat ice cream, and see lots of my friends when they come in!!!

My ideal summer would be hanging out with friends at amusement parks, eating all the food I want and not gaining any weight. Kick-back with a awesome book at the beach. And working as little as possible but still earning money. It sounds too good to be true, but you said ideal not realistic so I got as blissfully as I can. Love to be entered!
