Sorry for the delay in posting a winner. A family member has been ill and modern medicine has been (thankfully) intervening in our day-to-day lives for the past few weeks. As my brother says, "Better living through chemicals!" Of course, we'd rather we didn't need the pills and shots, but are thankful they are available when we do need them.
Thank you to each of you for your comments!

Holli, I will be in touch :)
The rest of you: It looks like Crispina ffrench may still have her contest open. I couldn't find a deadline on her post and it is entirely possible I overlooked it, but... Her blog's cool anyway, check it out here! Best wishes to you all.
Also, I strongly encourage you to suggest this book to your local public library. I know our library sincerely wants to know what its patrons are interested in and what they want to see on the shelves. Ours even has a link right on the home page of their website for "Suggest a Purchase" and they will notify you if they add your recommendation to their catalog, and even reserve it for you so you get to read it first!
