We have a winner!

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?

Who won?

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!

  1. Lacy is a winner. Congrats!

  2. Because you love another of his books, Middlesex?

    • Nope! This would amuse me even if I didn’t! And we have a winner. The reason is, he 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, which means I get to preen in his reflected glory!

    he’s one of your 36 favorite authors on Goodreads–not a stalker…clicking on your books on the side led me to your goodreads page

    • I know you’re not a stalker, silly! But you’re wrong. Also, we now have a winner: The reason is, he 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, which means I get to preen in his reflected glory!

  4. You’re a Nicholl Fellow like the author

    • Ding-ding-ding-ding-ding! We have a winner! You get a $5 gift certificate to the online bookseller of your choice (as long as they allow me to buy you one).
