I hope you celebrate your local library all year long, but this week shines a light on libraries! I'm going to having a few giveaways this week to celebrate.

To enter today's giveaway, simply leave a comment below (one entry per person) and I'll pick the winner from a hat (aka Random). Deadline: Monday, April 16, 2012 at midnight PDT. If your comment isn't linked to a blog where I can find you, please leave your email. Shipping to U.S. addresses only. Cake not included, but recipe is inside so you should totally make this cake!

Just returned from the public library where I checked out as many Henry & Mudge books as I could carry. My 3-year old is addicted to H&M as well as Angelina Ballerina. I would love to read to her while eating that cake. Having a copy of that cookbook would be terrific! Thank you.

Yum! I love reading new cook books. Almost more than making (and eating) the recipes. Current favorites are "Carmel Knowledge" and Terry Pratchett's "Granny Ogg's Cookbook." Thanks for holding this giveaway and for highlighting National Library Week.

Wow oh wow. That cake looks absolutely yummy!
Unless you have the library like the one the Beast gave to Belle, you can't possibly keep all the books you read. Go check out a book from the library. It's free!
