There have been over 1,000 contributions to the Book Notes series over the past seven years, and I am always seeking recommendations of authors to feature. Is there an author you like to see share a music playlist for their book?
To enter this week's contest, leave a comment naming the author whose music playlist you would most like to see in the Book Notes series for a chance at winning all seven books featured in the coming week on Largehearted Boy and a $100 Threadless gift certificate.
One winner, chosen randomly from the commenters, will receive the following prizes:
Afterlives of the Saints, by Colin Dickey
Gun Dealers' Daughter, by Gina Apostol
Hitless Wonder, by Joe Oestreich
The Red Chamber, by Pauline Chen
Something in My Eye, by Michael Jeffrey Lee
Understories, by Tim Horvath
The Unfinished Work of Elizabeth D., by Nichole Bernier
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 these books or they don'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 27th).
