Last week's contest, which solicited suggestions for Book Notes authors was such a success (thanks for all the recommendations), I decided to try something similar this week.
To enter this week's contest, leave a comment naming the classic book that deserves its own author soundtrack (the authors can be living or dead) for a chance at winning all six 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:
Battleborn, by Claire Vaye Watkins
The Beautiful Anthology, edited by Elizabeth Collins
Dare Me, by Megan Abbott
My Korean Deli, by Ben Ryder Howe
Partitions, by Amit Majmudar
You & Me, by Padgett Powell
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 (August 3rd).
