This week, betting odds were released for the 2012 Nobel Prize for Literature, and Haruki Murakami is the current favorite, a choice I would personally applaud.
To enter this week's contest, leave a comment with the name of the author you would most like to win the venerable prize to win a chance at this book and a $100 Threadless gift certificate.
One winner, chosen randomly from the commenters, will receive the following prizes:
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 (August 31st).
