Many thanks to all of you who entered the contest to win a book of your choice! But don’t worry, it’s not too late to win because I’m going to do this again. It’s too much fun not to. So if you didn’t enter before, go ahead and sign up to receive the blog (see sidebar) and next time there’s a contest you’ll be in on it from the beginning!
But wait, what’s that you’re asking?
Well, that’s really kind of fun. Lacy Waltzman won.
And the book she asked for is The Marriage Plot, by Jeffrey Eugenides.
The first person who responds in comment and tells me why this fact amuses me will get a different prize.
(The answer is on this site.)
(I told you I’m having fun giving things away!)
(What are you waiting for? Ready, set, go!)
Ding-ding-ding-ding-ding! We have a winner! Michelle gets a $5 gift certificate to the online bookseller of her choice for her answer: You’re a Nicholl Fellow like the author.
To further elucidate: Jeffrey Eugenides and I are both Nicholl Fellows (even though we’ve never met and I’m sure he’s never heard of me) AND he also won the Pulitzer Prize for Middlesex. Lacy’s choice of book allowed me to point that out yet again, which means I get to preen again in his reflected glory!
