Smart Bitches Thanksgivukkah Celebration - 8th Night

open book and menorahOne last night? YES! One last giveaway? YES! I hope you've had fun with our week-plus of mayhem over here! 

The final Hanukkah giveaway? I'm giving away one Google Nexus 7″ Tablet – 32 GB. 

Who doesn't love a fun and festive GB? 

 

Book Nexus 7 Tablet

 

Why another Nexus 7? Because I think they're pretty spiffy and universal. Hubby has one and as he wrote earlier this week, “I love the Nexus 7 because it weighs next to nothing.  It's easy to hold in one hand in either portrait or landscape, and the back is matte and rubbery so it doesn't slip.”

Hubby isn't lying – the Nexus is very lightweight and I think terrific for reading. It doesn't wear out my hand or wrist to hold it. Plus, it's running Android, which means that you can connect to the Google Play store (or the Market or the Reaping or the Defenestration or whatever they're calling their app store today) and download all the things you like to use to consume books: Kindle, nook, Kobo, Audible, and the Overdrive Library App, too. 

All you have to do to enter is drop your details in the widget below!

INFORMATION that likely shall be REPEATED. Because it's IMPORTANT.

The widget asks for your first and last name, and after our test over the weekend, I realized that I can't customize that part, and first and last names are required by the widget. However, that information is not posted publicly. As for the data collected, it comes to me, and I would not ever sell or distribute it. I only use it to contact the winner, and will delete the giveaways from the back end once they're done. I won't sign you up for any newsletters (you can do that on your own, for the daily RSS feed and the weekly ebooks on sale newsletters) and I wouldn't ever sell your information. Crazy eights, seven-up, sixty-five-mile-an-hour, high-fiving, quadruple Salchow, triple-flip, super-duper-up-and-down, double-downward-facing-dog-dare and also pinky swear

The widgets make it easier for me to efficiently and legally run a giveaway, especially eight of them in a row. If you have any problems, or if your computer doesn't load it correctly (I understand that within Twitter browsers it can be finicky) please feel free to contact me, and I can help you out.

Standard disclaimers apply: I'm not being compensated for this giveaway. Void where prohibited. Open to international residents where permitted by applicable law. It is, alas, your responsibility to determine whether the device will work where you are, as I can't personally deliver and test it, much as I'd like to because, really, we should all just get together for a global Smart Bitches' reading retreat, right? RIGHT. Must be over 18 and ready to read and revel in the books and the other fun things.

This giveaway will be open for 24 hours, until 1AM ET tomorrow. At 1am, another giveaway will go live, one for each night of Thanksgivukkah. Each giveaway will be a device meant for reading or listening or both, and yes, this is a lot of fun. Also, yes, I have lost my freaking mind. :)

Happy Thanksgivukkah!

    Totally ready to hit book on the Global Smart Bitches Reading Retreat.  Pick an island / ski chalet / chateau and I’ll pack the Tim Tams.  Favourite choc’s from around the world and books – there is no downside on that!

    An absolutely delicious idea. Rent some fantastical spot and hold a SBTB readers retreat. I’m all in. We could do a series: crumbling stately home for HistRo; dude ranch for contemporary cowboy; etc. etc. Sigh….the perfect playcation.

    A SBTBRR is a fantabulous idea! Hope to see that in future! It will put Comicons to shame!

    I love Hanukkah Madness because it remind me of being in High School and going to one of my friends house and having a chopped chicken liver sandwich for the very first time.  Since I lived in the state of New York at the time whenever I got a craving for some I could even go to the nearest deli and buy one – believe me they are addictive!

    We moved to Rhode Island after my husband got out of the Navy during the Vietnam era and fortunately when I got pregnant and my one craving was yup, a chopped chicken liver sandwich and there was a great little Jewish deli right around the corner from our apartment.  We moved to the southern part of the state after our second sun was born and I have loved living her for all these years but unfortunately I’ve had to try to find a “correct” recipe for chopped liver ever since and none of them ever came close to being as good as the one my girlfriend made or I picked up at a Jewish deli!  So if anyone out there knows a “real chopped chicken liver” sandwich recipe be sure to post it here so once again I can celebrate Hanukkah the right way – eating a chopped chicken liver sandwich!

    Dear SB Sarah:

    Thanks for the wonderful Hanukah giveaways.

    Jeanne,

    Chopped Chicken Liver recipe. 

    1. Use Chicken Livers, not any other type of liver.  I know that seems obvious but I’ve seen it made with beef liver.  Ugggh!  Make sure that the livers are firm and don’t have any green stains on them.  Make either the day before or early enough in the day to allow the ingredients to cool and congeal together.

    2. Use Schmaltz which is rendered chicken fat.  Contact me if you don’t know how to render fat.  It’s not difficult and it can be hard to find in stores.

    I’m afraid that I have to give you approximate measurements.

    Use 2 large or extra large eggs to 1 full chicken liver but cut the livers in two lobes before sauteing.

    Saute chicken livers in onion flavored chicken fat until the pink is gone.

    Saute onions until soft. 1 small onion should do.

    Chop together until almost a paste cooked livers, cooked onions, chopped eggs.  Add melted chicken fat until it comes together.  Refrigerate.  Don’t let it sit in fridge too long as it can get too strong.

    Serve with Rye bread with caraway seeds.

    My e address is robin c greene (one word) at yahoo dot com.

    Aaw, so sad to see it end :( But it was fun while it lasted! SO excited you chose to end things with another Nexus – I’d love to be able to surprise the husband with it and secure my win as the best wife of the year.

    @Robin – you’re awesome!

    And thank you all for joining me for Hanukkah madness and for the compliments! I’m so glad you’re here, too, because the community wouldn’t be as excellent without you.

    Thank you for yet another awesome giveaway. You have helped me decide which books I should read and those I shouldn’t even look at.

    My thanks to Robin for the up-date and making chopped chicken liver!  I thought I had tried everything but didn’t know to use chicken fat in the recipe!  No wonder it never came tasting right.

    I’ll have to contact her though to find out how to render to chicken fat to make the Schmeltz!  No wonder all my tries never came tasting right.
