Contest - Win The National's High Violet and Miguel Syjuco's Ilustrado

This week the National releases its latest album, High Violet, one of my favorite music releases of the year so far (right up there with Titus Andronicus's epic The Monitor and several others).

Miguel Syjuco's debut novel Ilustrado was also released late last month to rave reviews, and is one of the most compelling books I have read this year (along with Heidi Durrow's The Girl Who Fell to Earth, Amy Greene's Bloodoot, and a handful of others).

This week, to celebrate the wealth of good music and literature 2010 has already produced, I am giving away both these wonderful releases along with a random selection of music and books released this year.

To enter the contest, leave a comment in this post with the name of the best album and/or book you have read and/or listened to this year (your choices do not have to be released in 2010).

The winner will receive the following prizes:

The National's album High Violet (CD or vinyl, your choice)
Miguel Syjuco's novel Ilustrado
an assortment of books & CDs

The winner will be chosen randomly at midnight CT Friday evening (May 14th).
