Contest - Win Cheryl Strayed's Tiny Beautiful Things, Jaime Hernandez's God and Science, and a $100 Threadless Gift Certificate
Every week, my two favorite independent bookstores in the world make book recommendations at Largehearted Boy. Baltimore's Atomic Books recommends new comics and graphic novels, and Brooklyn's WORD lists some of the best new books.
To enter this week's contest, leave a comment naming your favorite bookstore (brick and mortar or online, or the library if that is where you get your books) to win a copy of two recently recommended books these stellar indie bookstores and a $100 Threadless gift certificate.
One winner, chosen randomly from the commenters, will receive the following prizes:
Cheryl Strayed's collection of Dear Sugar columns Tiny Beautiful Things (recommended by Brooklyn's WORD bookstore)
Jaime Hernandez's graphic novel God and Science: Return of the Ti-Girls (recommended by Baltimore's Atomic Books)
A $100 Threadless gift certificate to buy book-related t-shirts like A Voyage of Discovery, A Book Lover, November Was a Good Month, Brainy Rainbow, or Word!, music-related t-shirts like The Official Guide to Music, Boom Box, Sound of the Dark, or anything else that catches your fancy.
If you have already have the book or it doesn't interest you, I am happy to substitute a second $100 Threadless gift certificate for the book.
The winner will be chosen randomly at midnight ET Friday evening (July 20th).
