Dear Reader, you can win, too! Courtesy Hulu

Dear Reader,


If I was writing you a letter, it would probably sound something like an apology. (The 2007 movie Waitress is back streaming on Hulu, so now I’m addressing you the way that Jenna Hunterson writes to Baby in her new diary. Because I’m obsessed.) Anyhoo, what I mean to say is that we feel like we’ve been neglecting you. With all this talk of Best Of, who’s the best reader? You are. And as such, we’ve found some ways you too can win some yummy prizes.
