The winner of Bamboo Nation's latest contest, chosen by random draw, is "heartlocks19," who suggested that receiving the grand prize (a copy of Steve Lopez's The Soloist) may change her life. I guess if you set your standards low for self-transformation, then your own personal path to enlightenment will be a cakewalk. I like that idea. Anyway, congratulations heartloocks19, who also blogs at Recession Fun—all the way from the Philippines! E-mail me your mailing address, and I'll ship the book to you.
