Contest - Win Two Nick Hornby Books and a $100 Threadless Gift Certificate

More Baths Less Talking More Baths Less Talking

Two things inspired this week's contest. First, I have been enjoying Nick Hornby's new collection of criticism, More Baths Less Talking. Secondly, ESPN's 30 for 30 documentary series has been added to Netflix, and these sports films have dominated my weekend. I am far from the fervent sports fan I was as a kid, but these documentaries offer impressive insight, and have yet to disappoint me. While watching the excellent The Two Escobars, I was reminded how much I enjoyed Hornby's memoir Fever Pitch, in which chronicles his soccer fandom.

To enter this week's contest, leave a comment with the name of your favorite book that features sports for a chance to win these two books and a $100 Threadless gift certificate.

One winner, chosen randomly from the commenters, will receive the following prizes:

More Baths Less Talking by Nick Hornby
Fever Pitch by Nick Hornby

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 books or they don't interest you, I am happy to substitute a second $100 Threadless gift certificate for the books.

The winner will be chosen randomly at midnight ET Friday evening (September 14th).
