For a chance at winning this book and a $100 Threadless gift certificate, share the name of the best book you have read this year.
Mine changes daily, but usually vacillates between Taipei, Matt Bell's In the House upon the Dirt between the Lake and the Woods, Rachel Kushner's The Flamethrowers, or Fiona Maazel's Woke Up Lonely.
One winner, chosen randomly from the commenters, will receive the following prizes:
Tao Lin's new novel Taipei
A $100 Threadless gift certificate to buy book-related t-shirts like Storytellers, The Best Channels Since 1465, Fahrenheit 451, Brainy Rainbow, or Word!, and music-related t-shirts like Death Note, Funkalicious, Music Snob, or anything else that catches your fancy.
If you have already have this book or it doesn't interest you, I am happy to substitute a second $100 Threadless gift certificate.
The winner will be chosen randomly at midnight ET Friday evening (June 7th).
