Cooking book pile contest

Our newest book pile contest theme is cooking.* For something new, we’re teaming with Abebooks. They’re co-sponsoring the contest, and offering a fantastic grand prize—$100 to use on See their announcement of the contest here.

Without further ado…

The rules
1. Take a photo of your books. Be creative and inspired! Remember, the theme is cooking.
2. Post the photo to Flickr. You’ll need a Flickr account to do this (it’s easy and free).
3. Tag your photo on Flickr with “LibraryThingAbeBooks”

The prizes
First prize—$100 to use on
Second prize—Free lifetime membership on LibraryThing

The deadline
May 15, 2007

Special note on Flickr—photos from new accounts don’t always show up on the global tag page right away. If your photo isn’t showing up here, you can always post the URL in the comments to this blog post, we’ll make sure to find it.

Need inspiration? Check out the book pile archive for past winners, or Abebooks’ new “Books for Cooks” section.
